Taga Combined Baby Stroller and Trike comes to 50cycles


We can now offer test rides on the new Taga 2-in-1 baby stroller and tricycle urban mobility solution. It’s a head-turning, life-changing, multimodal, super-smart 21st Century vehicle like no other that transforms from a nifty 3-speed tricycle baby-carrier into a futuristic-looking baby stroller in less than a minute.

Taga is uniquely designed to suit the needs of today’s parents and children. Taga combines the benefits of a premium stroller and a carrier bicycle to create a new form of transport.

It lets you both move around easily, turning a typical day into an exciting adventure. There’s no need to lock Taga outside and nothing is left behind. Taga can also be taken on the tube, train, bus or any other means of public transportation, offering continuous riding to and from any destination.

Taga is available to order now at 50cycles bikes, either in DIY kit form or pre-assembled and checked by our workshop team and delivered ready to ride.

Zero Motorcycle Test Rides Zero S electric motorcycle launch in LondonWe now have a Zero X electric motorcycle available for test rides here in the UK. It’s an amazing machine, as those who witnessed it take to the race track and demonstration area at Presteigne would agree. Maybe it’s our superior British electricity, but the Zero X seems faster and more thrilling now than when we first raced it over in San Jose. Going from 0 to 60mph in less than 2 seconds, it runs off the most energy-dense Lithium power pack in the world and is built around an incredibly light aviation-grade alloy frame. It’s a world class machine that you can test ride and order through 50cycles now. The Zero X will soon be joined in our showroom by the road-legal Zero S Supermoto bike (pictured left), which debuted for the media in London last week. You can book a test ride for either machine on our website or by calling 0844 800 5979. Casco Eyewear & Helmets
