Description

The LT2 Hooptie is no longer in production. If you are able to find it second hand, it can be installed on your LT2 V-racks (pre 2021 EdgeRunners) or LT1 v.2 FlightDeck (older Xtracycle models) with the Hooptie Retrofit Kit.

    Does the Hooptie work in combination with two Thule Yepp Maxxi? I have a Stoker from early 2020.

      Hey there, Marco! Yes, the Hooptie does work with the Yepp Maxi. Just be sure the horizontal Hooptie rails are set to the wide setting to make room for the seat.

    Extra security for your precious cargo

    Chris C.

    I love this product. I have two kids, 4 and 2yrs old, and wanted to be able to bike them around but wanted to make sure they were safe at the same time. Both my kids love riding in the hooptie and I love it because I know they are safe and secure. Installation on my Surly Big Dummy was easy and with a few custom modifications for my little guys we are ready for adventure. Bravo.

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

    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.

    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!

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

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.
