PEAPOD LT
The fun way to carry your children.

Xtracycle is proud to release the PeaPod LT: a child’s bicycle seat that enables a parent to go anywhere they want, carry just about anything they need, and ride with their children in safety and comfort.  With a 5-point safety harness, seat cushions you can wash and a ton of adjust-ability it will allow you to haul your child safely.

Pilot Program

To help the release of this new PeaPod LT the company has a “Pilot Program.”  The program starts this Friday, September 11th.   To the first 50 families you can purchase a Radish paired with a PeaPod LT for $999.  Those families will then document their experiences through photos, essays and videos.  Later in the year judges will pick the family that showed their experiences the best.

    That’s a really great marketing idea! I look forward to hearing about their experiences.

    Agree with Dottie that it’s a great marketing idea, but more than that, it’s a way to really test the product and get feedback from real cyclists–after all, they’re the ones who will be using it! But then, it seems xtracycle is pretty good at giving us what we want….

    Didn’t qualify for this program cause we are in Canada, but just added my peapod lt to my x-cycle, and it is a great improvement to our homemade seat we were using. Have it in the 7th position, so I can sit older child in front, but don’t get too much back weight when I only have one child with me. Handles nicely – only complaint is it cuts into cargo space. But worthwhile compromise for I feel way more comfotable zipping around with kiddos now (I have electric assist – so awesome on hills when one has 100+ cargo!). Would like to see a seat one could adjust the position easily to account for additional passengers, and ideally remove simply for when one is without kid-cargo. I liked being able to “snap” out our old child seat to replace with regular flat deck for solo rides (however, was always nervous with how easily it “snapped” out – would bungee cord it down.

    Can I ask, how easy/hard is it to remove the peapod for when you don’t have kids on board?
