This is Påhoj: A child bike seat and stroller in one!
Påhoj is featured in:
"Not only is this a great invention for parents who are exhausted and don’t need any more 'stuff', but it encourages parents to get out there and bike." Jaime Derringer, Founder + Executive Editor of Design Milk
A child bike seat and stroller in one:
• Telescopic handle up to 103 cm / 40.6 in
• Carry a child from 9kg / 19.8 lbs up to 22kg / 48.5 lbs
• Light weight chassis + withstand weather
• Included docking system
• Total weight: 3.5 kg / 7.7 lbs
An ordinary bicycle with a bike seat attached is a fantastic way to get around with your child. No need to use fuel, fresh air and exercise —all in one. But what option do you have when you have arrived at your destination and need to walk around? Do you carry your child the entire time? Do you walk slowly with her? Do you end up chasing him?
We’ve created a simple solution to this problem: Påhoj, a child bike seat and stroller in one! Don’t waste time planning whether to bring the bike or the stroller. With Påhoj you’ve got both! The handy attachment system makes the switch from stroller to bicycle seat a walk in the park.
Påhoj gives you increased flexibility for getting around town. Whether you choose to cycle or walk, your child can always tag along comfortably.
Leave the car behind and start pedalling (and don’t forget your little one).
Påhoj is perfect for those who want to skip unnecessary car rides and still be flexible in everyday life.
With Påhoj, one parent can easily leave the child at daycare and continue by bike to work. And the other parent can pick up the child on foot.
Påhoj is also useful when you bike to the museum, library, or visit the grandparents who can continue with a stroll in the park.
Påhoj comes with an included docking system. It is mounted on the frame under the bike saddle and is not depending on a parcel carrier. It fits tubes between 28 to 40 mm / 1.1 to 1.6 in. Påhoj includes a lightweight chassis with a telescopic handle that can be extended to 103 cm / 40.5 in, which is the standard height of existing fixed umbrella strollers.
The light weight chassis is powder coated and prepared to withstand weather conditions such as rain, sun and more. Alike existing child bike seats, both the seat and the foot rest are made of PP (Polypropelene) plastic. The total weight of Påhoj is about 3,5 kg / 7.7 lbs.
The perforations in the back provide good ventilation for the child and prevent wind resistance when biking with an empty seat. A grip friendly perforation is also integrated in the lower back to facilitate lifting.
The handy attachment system is placed under the Påhoj seat which makes it easy to put on and off the bike. Here it is also safe away from bad weather conditions (as well as meddlesome children!). Like all certified strollers, Påhoj also contains brakes and adjustable harness.
Påhoj carries a child up to 22 kg / 48.5 lbs and is constructed to fulfil the EU standards of both child bike seats (EN14344) and sitting prams (EN1888). These standards specify all sizes and dimensions for a safety-approved product and the license also includes carefully testing at certificated institutes. The standards have been implemented from the very beginning, and also verified and tested throughout the product development process.
Påhoj has been stability tested at BRIO's former test lab in Osby. Stable as a rock!
First sketches & mock-ups
Påhoj is a vibrant and solid team with lifelong experience in large scaled production and sales. Our capability stretches all the way from Hong Kong to Sweden. And our competence stretch even further, from BRIO baby strollers to dish brushes for IKEA and mobile phones for Nokia.

Risks and challenges
Designing a product that will carry a child in traffic is, of course, a big safety challenge. Therefore, Påhoj is constructed to fulfill the existing EU standards for both child bike seats (EN14344) and sitting prams (EN1888). These standards specify all sizes and dimensions for a safety-approved product and the license also includes carefully testing at certified institutes. The standards has been implemented at the very beginning and verified and tested throughout the product development process.
Production always includes challenges. To minimize them a great experienced team with knowledge and experience is a must. We are a dynamic and solid team with lifelong experience in production focused on child safe products and high volume production. The team also includes great business developers focused on sales, finance and growth.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
