Trunki teams with Halfords to launch first Balance Bike and Scooters range

Trunki has partnered with Halfords to launch its first range of Trunki Balance Bikes and Scooters, a new line that can be ridden, towed, folded and carried.

Designed by Rob Law, the brains behind the original Trunki ride-on suitcase concept, the products are available exclusively at Halfords. The partnership was brokered by the brand extension and licensing agency three60brands.

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 genius folding rear wheel, meaning the bike folds completely flat, making them easy to carry, pack or store. Unlike other balance bikes, the Trunki Balance Bike incorporates a tow/carry strap – a smart addition which allows you to carry the balance bike when not in use and aids your little one’s confidence, allowing you to glide them or tow them when their little legs get tired.

The three-wheeled Trunki Scooters come in two different and sizes and include a child-safe folding mechanism, and a lightweight  durable frame with large sturdy wheels, which means little ones can enjoy a smooth ride, whether scooting solo or being towed by their parents.

The Trunki Scooters and bikes are tool-free and come with a carry/tow strap and a bag, making them perfect for hanging on the back of the pushchair, stashing in the car boot or hanging in the hallway or garage when not in use.

Rob Law, founder and CEO of Trunki, said: “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. Together we’re helping families on their everyday journeys and encouraging more healthy outside adventures.”

Justin Stevenson, Halfords’ head of design, added: “We’re thrilled to be collaborating with Rob Law, the creator of the iconic ride-on suitcase, 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 Trunki range is available now, exclusively from Halfords.
