Essentially sleeping bags for your hands, pogies are essential for cold weather biking.
Fat biking is BIG in Alaska! So when my friend & I got our toddlers set up with Kids Ride Shotgun seats on our bikes - we quickly discovered that there was nowhere to purchase kid's pogies.
3 days later, & about 11 prototypes - we bring you oma+jo toddler & youth pogies!!
These weather-resistant pogies are insulted with a synthetic hypoallergenic fill & lined with soft fleece. Toddler pogies slip over handle bars of balance bikes or Kids Ride Shotgun handle bar accessory & youth fit over standard bikes with brake & gear levers and secure tightly with bungee to keep cold air out. Top opening allows for easy in and out of hands & each pogie has a small pocket for handwarmers. Exterior is made from water and wind resistant ripstop nylon with reflective racer stripes down the side.
Kids can wear a lighter mitten or glove that doesn't restrict dexterity for gripping handles, while staying warm in their pogies - add a hand warmer on colder days or long rides! If you've gone fat biking in very cold temps - you know that pogies are the only way to keep warm - & now you can keep your kiddos warm too!
Note: Toddler pogies are designed for smaller handle bars with low profile break levers (compatible with Woom bike models 1, 2, & 3) or no break levers (balance bikes or Kids Ride Shotgun accessory handlebars) and will not fit over bikes with standard sized levers & gear shifters. Toddler pogies will fit until age 4-5 years.
Our larger size pogies work for ages 4 years - small adult & fit over standard levered handle bars. Suggested for use with 16” and greater bike size. These pogies are designed with all the same features & insulation however due to the larger size & greater air space will not keep kids under age 4 (or petite 4-5 year olds) as warm. Not compatible with Kids Ride Shotgun handle bars.
At this time pogies are made to order with a 2 week turn around. We plan to stock a limited supply of ready to ship pogies starting late fall of 2021.
