Developed in collaboration with experts in consumer research and safety technology, the new series aligns from the beginning with the updated 2022 EU standard for safety in bicycle child seats, the EN 14344 standard. Currently, other manufacturers have been trying to adapt existing models designed before the change to meet these important new regulations.
Minimal design, maximum protection
The Prodigee ICON series consists of two child seats, one front and one rear which can mount on the frame or rear rack. Designed to complement modern bicycles or e-Bikes, through a futuristic-minimalist design, they are characterised by ergonomic details and compliance with the latest EU safety standards including improved side protection, as well as the careful use of EVA foam to enhance comfort for children.
The front seat features an integrated handlebar for added stability and fun for small children, while the rear seat has an adjustable backrest for growing bodies. Both versions are equipped with adjustable, secure footrests.
Key features include:
- 5-point harness system
- Adjustable backrest
- Adjustable footrests
- Integrated lock
- Fully recyclable frame made of 100% polypropylene
- Waterproof EVA seat padding
- All materials used are chemically safe.
Prodigee aims to create innovative transportation solutions for a sustainable world: "Our products are designed to enhance the lives of modern families, support their mobility, and encourage them to ride bicycles more frequently and in new ways. Guided by our core values and innovative thinking, Prodigee offers the perfect blend of functionality, performance, and style," says Gianmarco Mioni, maker of Prodigee.
However, the top priority is passenger protection: "Patented design solutions combined with state-of-the-art technology ensure that children are as safe as possible at all times." According to the manufacturer, another product, the ICON bicycle trailer, is expected to be launched in 2024. It is currently in development and promises innovative features not currently found on most trailers on the market today.
Prodigee will be showing its products at the Eurobike in Frankfurt am Main. (Hall 11.1 Stand C06).
