Omnium Cargo Yepp Maxi Mount – The Prototype

Posted on .

We know you want to carry your kids on the Omnium, we know you are quite happy to tie them down with string or just get them to ‘hold on tight!’, but really, wouldn’t it be better to have a strong safe and secure seat – like the market leader the Yepp Maxi – and have a metal mount that was specifically designed for the Omnium Cargo?

Yes. It would. Good design and engineering takes a little time, but we are nearly there and have prototypes ready which we would put our own kids in. Soon we have ones we can sell. Are you interested? Drop us a mail.

The final product will be waterjet cut from aluminium and easily fitted under the rack. The seat is removable in 30 seconds with a locking mount that is part of the Yepp Maxi’s standard equipment. Using an extender bar (from our webshop) means you can still carry a small elephant at the front – probably. We will try to figure out a quick fitting cover for the hole left in the cargo area when the seat is off. Yepp also make a rain cape that means that no weather will get on your little angels. Our model refused to put his feet into the foot holders on camera, but was keen when unobserved. The final mount will probably move the seat around 40mm further toward the pilot.
