Taga BV is a Dutch company, which specializes in ecological mobility.
Taga Bike, is a multifunctional urban vehicle for parents and children. It combines a carrier bike and a premium stroller to create a new transportation modality. Its unique design aims to improve the daily family life experience, making it less restrained and more enjoyable.
Taga enables parents to ride easily and safely with their children, while also carrying groceries or personal items around the city, leaving their car behind. During the ride, the child can see and experience the surroundings and the parent can watch and communicate with the child, making the ride a mutual adventure.
When reaching the target location (home or any building such asa mall, cafe, indoor playground, clinic or friend's house), Taga can be transformed into a standard-size stroller within 20 seconds, allowing the parent and the child to enter the premises, ride the elevator or ascend the stairs, leaving no parts behind.
Taga can also be used on public transportation, enabling inter-city rides and a continuous outdoor-indoor trip.
The product is modular and versatile, allowing attachment of a wide range of accessories such as: hood, rain cover, seat for a second child, wooden seat for two children, shopping basket, side bags, infant car seat and more.
Moreover, Taga can be easily disassembled or folded, for car trunk transportation or home storage, within less than one minute.
Taga can be used for 1-2 children ages 0-6 years. When the children are older than 6, they can ride Taga by themselves. Taga can also be used for shopping when the children are not around.
