Thanks to advances in technology, mutually excluding an active lifestyle and having children are a thing of the past. Case in point, the Zigo Leader X2 Carrier Bicycle ($1,399), a hybrid carrier bike system and child carrier that converts to a traditional (yet cool looking) stroller, baby jogger, rear trailer, or urban bicycle in less than a minute. How?

Two primary components: the Zigo Cycle, a 20″ wheel multi-speed adult bicycle and the Zigo ChildPod, a two-child stroller with caster wheels, crumple zone bumper, and weatherproof drum brakes that engage or disengage from one another. Combined, they transform to fight the battle of Decepticons form the Leader X2, and one of the best bicycle/child carrier concepts we’ve seen to date.

Other unique features include a Shimano Nexus 3 or optional 7 speed hub, swept-back handlebars, brakes for safe loading/unloading or jogging, direct line of sight with rear window that ensures you can keep an eye on the kids, 5 point padded restraint harness, glare protective sunshade, removable interior cushions, interior/rear pockets, Denier 1000 weatherproof fabric, adjustable handlebars, and flat-folding design that fits in closets and cars.
