The Shotgun Pro seat fits all modern mountain bikes with a standard 1 1/8 inch steerer, including electric mountain bikes. Before purchasing, check your local laws regarding the use of child seats and e-bikes.
Fitting requires 10mm of clearance under the stem. Bikes with stems shorter than 50mm in length may require additional clearance under the stem, the minimum clearance required is indicated in the diagram below.
The Shotgun Pro includes two spacers, for use on two bikes. Installing the Shotgun Pro spacer replaces 10mm of standard steerer spacers on your bike.
Please note that adaptors for use with Trek Knock Block and Scott Syncros headsets are sold separately. The Shotgun Pro is not compatible with bikes that have a quill stem.
The Shotgun Pro seat is suitable for dropper posts and all common seat post sizes, including 27.2mm, 30.9mm, 31.6mm and 34.9mm. Fitting requires 14mm of available seat post space.
We're stoked to have received a Design & Innovation Award for the Shotgun Pro seat. This award is both a benchmark and a seal of approval for the most outstanding products within the cycling world.

A: We designed the Shotgun Pro for use on mountain bikes. We don’t recommend using the Shotgun Pro on bikes without front suspension as there is insufficient clearance between the front wheel and your child's feet when turning the front wheel.
The Shotgun Pro has 7 leg length settings, the shortest is 25.5cm, the longest is 35cm.
A: If you have surplus spacers on top of your stem, you may be able to reposition them in order to lift the height of your stem. This may provide the space required under the stem for fitting the Shotgun Pro.
A: If you have 10mm of clearance directly under your stem, but don’t have the 46mm of clearance required for the front clamp of the Shotgun Pro, it may be possible to replace your current stem with a stem that is longer, has more rise, or both.
A: You may be able to lift the height of your seatpost, in order to provide the space required for fitting the Shotgun Pro child seat.

The school run and shredding down a mountain have become her favourite days of the week. So much easier to use than the original which was a cracking bit of kit anyway. Things evolve and they have targeted the exact issues perfectly.
