Hooptie LT2


Up your kiddo and cargo carrying game with this super handy handrail system. The LT2 Hooptie lets kids and parents feel safe and secure while riding, and will hold up to 1 adult or 3 children when paired with the U-Tubes for feet support. Those looking to carry cargo can use the Hooptie to contain cargo on the deck – i.e. milk crates that can increase carrying capacity – or it can be used as attachment points to hang cargo off of, like bike camping sleeping bags.

The LT2 Hooptie is made of a front and rear metal upright bracket that installs onto your V-racks or LT1 v.2 FlightDeck, and two removable and adjustable horizontal metal and foam padded hand rails. The hand rails have both an inner hand-rail (covered in a black foam padding) and outer protection rail that helps defend your precious cargo’s hands on every ride. The inner rail can easily be removed for carrying larger loads.  With 2 adjustable width settings, the wider setting accommodates Yepp Maxi EasyFit kids seats, and the narrower setting is great for a safe and snug fit without a Yepp kids seat.

      My 4 year old daughter loves the hooptie. She has ridden with the handlebars, but prefers the extra security of the bars. I like how it gives me extra cargo space when I’m shopping for our family of 5.

      The hooptie has been great for our four year-old. It adjusts size easily and is easy for our child to hold on to for support. The design is smart and practical. For anyone who uses the Xtracycle to transport a larger child, it is a must have.

      I love the hooptie accessory. I put all sorts of fragile things on top of my platform (including my children) and with the hooptie they are contained and can be strapped down (the things, not the children) in a way that does not crush. I have not had side bags on my xtracycle for some time now, because the hooptie has me covered for cargo. LOVE IT!

      These safety bars “hooptie” are really easy to use, adjustable width and the kids love them and feel really safe and secure when riding with me. my kids are 5 and 7 and fit the narrower width comfortably. I’ve actually graduated to only one side making it easier for them to get on and off the bike and they still feel very safe and secure.

      My boys love riding on the back of the EdgeRunner, and the hooptie keeps them nice and secure.

      The Hooptie was central to our comfort when we first put our kid on the back at age 3. She loves it so much she calls the bike “the hooptie.” It gave us more peace of mind than stoker bars in case she or the bike fell. It’s let us add on a little friend. It can also widen to accommodate larger cargo. Plus we even attached a coffee cup holder for a bike trip to put her water bottle in!

      I ride my Edgerunner with my 14 month old. He sits in a Yepp Maxi and the hooptie gives me extra security with his safety. Once he’s out of the Maxi, he’ll be able to enjoy the free side just with the hooptie.

      Backwards, forwards, and every which way, the Hooptie makes hauling the kiddos around fun for everyone.
