Well made, fun to ride, with loads of carrying options

The Taga is a tricycle that converts into a stroller pushchair. It’s suitable for children from around six months old (younger with the optional adapter for Maxi-Cosi baby carriers), up to five or six years old (25kg max) in riding mode and up to three or four (15kg max) in stroller mode.

Switching between riding mode and stroller takes around 15 seconds once you get used to it, a little longer if you have your child secured in the seat by the five-point harness. There’s a handy flip-out stand on the back of the seat, so when you’re changing between riding and pushing you can put the seat on the ground without fear of it rocking over.

The Taga is actually very pleasant to ride, with or without a child in the seat. Once you get used to the weight (27kg) and the steering – it works much like a car, with the front wheels turning different amounts as you turn – there’s a certain something about riding it that makes you sit up, slow down and just enjoy the ride.

We had nothing but smiles from the kids we put up front, and without the kids in it we had a good time too (especially trying to corner it on two wheels – sssh!). It comes with a roomy shopping basket underneath the child seat, with a 5kg steel plate in the bottom for stability and to form a firm base for your groceries.

Brakes are twin cable operated discs up front and a Shimano Nexus roller brake at the rear on the three-speed Nexus hub. The front brake lever also has a parking brake function – a push-in button on the lever – so there’s no chance of it rolling away with your child/shopping.

In stroller mode the Taga is a little on the large size, and not the easiest thing to manoeuvre around narrow aisles in shops, and turning the bike in tight spaces could also be easier. We still enjoyed it though.
