What is the Hike Kid?

The Hike Kid is a two-wheeled off-road stroller that is particularly all-terrain when you pull it behind you. The child looks backwards and is securely fastened with a four-point safety belt. The seat of the Hike Kid works like a hammock. This means that your child can sit and sleep calmly and relaxed.
Based on the same principle used by the Native Americans to transport people and things - two long poles attached to both sides of a horse and connected to a mat - the Hike Kid with its long telescopic handles is also easy to pull on steeper passages, where a "push pushchair" has long since become impossible to move. Large pneumatic tires with Schwalbe coats also run over rough terrain.

About the advantages of pulling No. I: Front wheel drive, baby! 

For many people it is unusual to pull a pram instead of pushing it. There is physical proof - with a simple formula - why it is more energy-saving to pull the load behind you than to push it. Without any formula and purely from experience, rickshaw drivers or construction workers do the same.
The body posture is more upright, the pushing force does not go forwards/down (as when pushing), but forwards/upwards. Anyone who has ever tried to push a stroller forwards over a step or uphill knows that pulling is simply easier.
A lot of force is literally going into the ground when pushing. That is also the reason why it is so strenuous to push a conventional pram up the hill. It is different when pulling, because here no force is unnecessarily directed into the ground.
Even cars with front-wheel drive are generally easier to push uphill and have a more stable road holding than those with rear-wheel drive.
The front chest muscles, which are shortened in most people by screen work, are also forced further unnaturally forward when pushing. When pulling, on the other hand, the shoulders are not pulled up and further tensed.
The effective use of the pulling force helps on all surfaces. The Hike Kid can be pulled through sand, over gravel, steps, cobblestones and unpaved paths.

About the advantages of pulling No. II: Take it easy, baby!

Many active parents plan to use a Kraxe (or carrying backpack) with their baby or toddler for outdoor activities. From our own experience we can say that the time window in which you can use a Kraxe is very short. The baby should be able to sit independently for at least three months, i.e. about 10 months old. At that time a child already weighs about 9 kg. On top of that, the Kraxe weighs between 2.5 and 3.8 kg for standard outdoor models, plus diapers, spare clothes, provisions...
So you start your outdoor tours with a piece of luggage weighing about 15 kg, whose centre of gravity is high up and too far away from your back - and often still moving. For women, this weight is too much right from the start. Three years and about five kilos later, most parents have given up the subject of children's cramps and limit themselves to tours that they can go on with their normal buggy or pram.
And being carried in a carrying backpack doesn't look much more comfortable through the child's glasses: the child is exposed to sun and wind in such a way that cooling off or sunburn is often discovered too late. The child cannot quickly get out of the pram and walk a few metres on its own. The blood circulation in the legs has to be constantly controlled by the parents and if the child falls asleep, it does so with its head bent.

With the Hike Kid off-road stroller, your child can be pulled up to a weight of 25 kg - according to statistics, a well-fed boy of just over 5 years of age weighs that much. For the child, the semi-recumbent position is very comfortable for sleeping. The awning can be positioned according to the angle of radiation, so that the child is always in the shade.

In Action

Freedom baby!

The angle of the stroller and the resulting arm position is determined by you and not the stroller. This way you avoid a stiff neck or shoulder pain. 
Another advantage is its ease of movement on rough terrain.
Whether surfing, kiting or just a beach holiday. With the Hike Kid you can transport your child to the place of action without having to carry your child and luggage. It glides easily over sand and stone beaches. Thanks to the comfortable reclining position in the seat and the sun canopy, you can take your cot with you right away. 
Should hiking passages be narrower than the already slim Hike Kid, its low centre of gravity ensures optimum off-road capability in sloping positions. Where conventional prams would already tip over, the Hike Kid stays on track.

"This is great!" was my first thought. "It's so expensive!" was my second thought. When I had a kid, I left the store. Four years later, with two kids, I came back and bought it. Four more years later, I was able to resell it very well.

We made many great mountain tours and I have never regretted the decision to buy. I was also able to do many great tours on my own because I carried a child and put a child in the hike. For my own training and posture, pulling uphill has been awesome because it is simply the counter movement to the normal pushing of the stroller. It is the only pushchair suitable for uphill use with which this is possible. Since then I have been recommending the Hike regularly to my patients who like to be active in nature with their children.
