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.

“The Kids Ride Shotgun Tow Rope is a great way of helping your kids enjoy their ride a little more. By taking the sting out of long climbs and steep ramps, you not only help them conserve energy for the descents but also open up the possibility of longer rides and bigger smiles!”
– Finlay, Enduro Magazine
If you’re looking for a way to get your kiddo up hills and to ride longer distances, without tears or whining, consider the Kids Ride Shotgun tow rope. If you love biking with your kids, it might be the best $60 you’ll ever spend.

A: Our mission is to help raise the next generation of mountain bikers. For us, that means getting more kids (and families) onto the trails. If your kid doesn’t mind riding uphill, and you don’t need a tow rope, then that’s cool with us! But if you’d like to tackle bigger adventures, together or ride further than little legs than handle, then that’s where our tow rope comes in.

I have used the Shotgun when necessary out on a novice MTB led ride recently, and it was easy to set up and worked well for me. I'd recommend one of these for a get you home type solution for flagging riders or those a little young/inexperienced that need a boost every now and again. Great product!
