Zigo Ships First Units of Zigo® Leader™ Carrier Bicycle to Dealers
Worldwide launch underway
South Orange, NJ, May 5, 2009: Zigo, Inc. today announced that it has shipped the first commercial units of the Zigo® Leader™ Carrier Bicycle to dealers across the United States. Product is expected to arrive in Europe later this month. The Zigo® Leader™ Carrier Bicycle System can operate as a three-wheeled carrier bicycle, a stroller, jogging stroller, urban bicycle, or trailer, converting among these modes in under a minute. It was first shown in 2007 at Interbike, the bicycle industry trade show.
"It's been a long haul but worth the effort," explained Dr. Michael Ehrenreich, Zigo's Founder and CEO. "My son was six months old when I started working on the Zigo for him. He will start kindergarten this Fall. I'm proud to be able to tell him that I did this for him."
The Zigo Leader will be available at Independent Bicycle Dealers and other specialty shops in the US, as well as through distributors across Europe.
"It's a revolution in child transportation," said Rus Bockin, Zigo's Director of North American Sales. "People are really looking forward to this launch. Our current production run is nearly completely sold out, but more will soon be on the way."
SOMA Cycle, Inc. (dba Zigo) designs and develops human-powered vehicles, strollers, and carrier bicycles for use by active parents or other caregivers along with their children.
