Trunki launches new balance bikes and scooters

Ride-on suitcase brand expands its offer, with Halfords exclusively selling the range in the UK.

Ride-on suitcase brand Trunki has launched a new range of balance bikes and scooters – which will be sold exclusively by Halfords in the UK.

The range of new bikes and scooters is the only one which can be folded flat, ridden, towed or carried, according to Trunki.

The Trunki Balance Bikes are made with a lightweight aluminium frame and have puncture-proof tyres and come in two different sizes. Each bike boasts a unique, easy to use lift and twist handlebar and a folding rear wheel, meaning the bike folds completely flat, making them easy to carry, pack or store.

The Trunki Balance Bike incorporates a tow/carry strap – an addition which allows it to be carried when not in use.

Meanwhile, the three-wheeled Trunki Scooters come in two different sizes (small, 3+ and large, 4+) and include a chid-safe folding mechanism and a lightweight, durable frame with large sturdy wheels.

“I’m delighted to be partnering with Halfords to bring Trunki’s ingenious thinking to this category, ensuing kids have fun and addressing the unmet needs of parents who are often left to carry these products when kids get tired and helping them pack them in the car or store at home,” said Rob Law, founder and ceo of Trunki. “Together we’re helping families on their everyday journeys and encouraging more healthy outside adventures.”

Justin Stevenson, head of design at Halfords, added: “We’re thrilled to be collaborating with Rob on this exclusive range. Trunki’s balance bikes and scooters are a great way to introduce children to cycling and scooting while being clever enough for parents to tow, fold and carry.

“Toddlers and little ones will have so much fun with their Trunki that learning to ride and scoot will be effortless.”

The partnership between Trunki and Halfords was created by brand extension and licensing agency, three60brands.
