Babboe: Slim Mountain Series
Fancy a scoot around your favourite trail with your kiddos in full view? Well now you can! The Babboe Slim Mountain takes their tried and tested ‘Long John’ formula to the dirt and beyond.
With the powerful Yamaha mid-drive motor and Enviolo shifting system, you can enjoy a very natural ride. The motor multiplies the effort you put in as you pedal and you can dial up the gear ratio as you see fit: there is no gear as such, just a simple twist of the handlebar to transition from the lowest to the highest ratio.
There are a mixture of seating options for children of different ages using the cushion set with lap belts, the central rail also mounts two Yepp Seats or a Maxi-Cosi Carrier. The bay is completely surrounded by protective side bars and there is also a twin kickstand for loading/unloading.
The inline seating position helps to keep the weight of your kiddos down low and is easier to balance than most regular bicycles: you’ll feel like you’re all part of a Bobsleigh team taking on the world together! The 65cm handlebar is the widest point, so you can also nip through most gaps and roll into regular hallways too.
Whilst the focus is on opening up dirt tracks like those around Richmond Park, the Slim Mountain Series also float over potholes and shoddy road surfaces with ease. Combined with the narrow chassis, this makes for a Family Cargo Bike to take on all that London has to dish out!
