Nordic cab develops multi use bike trailers. Pivot has assisted development, engineering and styling of their new model, Urban. The Urban is as at home in the woods as it is navigating the busy streets of Oslo. The Urban bridges the gap between stroller and bike trailer, this ensure a high performing comfortable product.
This project was a perfect fit for us, we all have children and use strollers and bike trailers. Our first task on this project was to come with styling proposals. We then proceeded and used our methodology to simplify the product in terms of parts and operations. We focused heavily on the comfort of the occupants in terms of ventilation, seat comfort and the interaction with the product and how it affects the passengers. The urban features two independent reclining seats. The lead design and engineering was the work of Ulf Tolfsen and Pivot.
