"We love to get out biking as a family, but sometimes the hills are a little too steep or just too hard for the kids after a long bike ride. The tow rope goes on so easily and just gives the perfect amount of help needed for the kids to get up the hills. Charlene H - Canada

    FAQ:
    Q: What age is the tow rope suitable for?
    A: The shotgun tow rope is designed with kids in mind, but it’s suitable for adults too – as it’s rated to 500lb / 225kg.
    For kids, we’ve found that the tow rope works best once they’re confidently riding a pedal bike themselves, usually this is once they are riding a 16" or 20" wheel bike.

     

    Q: Is the tow rope safe for use on Ebikes?
    A: We’re aware of many customers using their tow ropes with Ebikes and we haven’t heard of any issue to date. To minimise load on the Ebike motor we recommend the person being towed is also pedalling.

     

    Q: Is the tow rope safe for use on dropper posts?
    A: The majority of our customers use their tow rope on dropper posts and we aren’t aware of any issues. To minimise wear and tear on your seat post you should remain seated when towing.

      Introducing the MTB Tow Rope

      Shock absorbing stretch

      Our tow rope’s gentle stretch is designed to give a smooth towing experience, without any sudden jolts.

      Multi-strand embedded elastic core

      Our tow rope features a unique embedded elastic core, making it stronger than other tow ropes.

      From balance bikes to big bikes

      With a load rating of 500lb / 225kg, our tow rope is suitable for small kids and big kids alike.

      Stem loop included

      The MTB tow rope is suitable for use on bikes with any stem type. 

      The stem loop method is quick and easy to attach to bikes with stem bolts. Simply loop over your kids stem and hook it under the stem bolts.  

      For bikes without stem bolts, loop the paracord around the stem and feed the rope back through itself. 

      Hook up + hit the trails

      Using the Shotgun tow rope is easy. 

      Connect the tow rope to the trailing bike.

      Loop the other end over the saddle of the lead bike.

      Make sure the person being towed is ready, and set off gently. Easy!
