About the Carrier
The Zigo Leader X2 Carrier Bicycle is the perfect way for children with special needs to join in the family fun. You can easily observe and assist your special needs child when he/she is in the forward-positioned ChildPod.

“In sight” equals “in control”. The ViewPort affords quick, instant visual communication, while the AccessPort allows for a calming touch while riding. No more awkward twisting to see a rear mounted seat or trailer! Using patent-pending LeaderLink technology, the ChildPod is easily coupled or uncoupled from the Cycle in a matter of seconds, creating a fully functional stroller (or jogger with optional Zigo Jogger Kit). This means not having to transfer your special needs child to another stroller or chair when you are done riding. Just uncouple the ChildPod from the Cycle and you can walk, shop, or sit in a restaurant or café with your child.
- Tadpole (two wheels in front) design keeps the Zigo Leader stable. Hop-on and hop-off stress-free to attend to your child’s needs; you can even do this while still straddling the bike.
- Parking brake keeps the carrier bike in place while you assist your child.
- 5-point safety harness.
- Bright, attention grabbing colors.
- Front bumper.
- Orange safety flag.
- Large, reflective safety stripe.
- Environment Control System (accessory) protects ChildPod passengers from the elements.
- Rated for up to 80 lbs.
- Meets all relevant ASTM and European standards.
- AblePlay Rating of 4 out of 5 on all measurements.
