Keeping up with a child on a bike while walking can be a lot of fun especially when they are approaching dangerous areas, making you sprint quickly to slow them down before an accident happens.
To stop this and add a little pleasure to a stroll you might take with your young one while on their bike, is the MiniDrake. The MiniBrake is a remote controlled braking system that can be fitted to almost any child’s bike, enabling you to control their speed from a distance.
The creators explain : “When your kids ride their bikes, have you ever felt that they are only a few inches away from danger and they won’t even notice it until it’s too late? And even if you tried, you won’t be able to protect them?
We have developed MiniBrake, the remote controlled bike brake system to tackle just this problem. The product consists of two parts: a remote controller and a small brake attached to the rear of the bike. Using the MiniBrake is as simple as it gets: when you sense that your kid is in danger, you just press the controller and your child’s bike comes to a safe and smooth stop.
And we know your first question: no, your kid will not fall over when the brake is applied! We’ve specifically designed the brake to avoid that even if your child is going fast. The brake is applied to the rear wheel, not the front and the brake is applied by putting pressure on that wheel, so it comes to a firm, but safe and smooth stop!”
The MiniBrake project is currently over on the Indiegogo crowd funding website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production.
