The Kr8 is generally purchased with the intention of using it as a family transport bicycle, it is especially suited to families with very young children. The Kr8, unless otherwise specified, is always built up with the fold-away kiddy bench inside the cargo box. The bench comes complete with two 3-point harness seat belts and is suitable for children of 9 months and older. The bench flips up so when you need to use the bike purely for cargo purposes you have more space. For those of you who already own a Kr8 and need some more seating for the kids, or want to know more on which additional seats work best, here is our Kr8 child seat guide:
Kr8 Kiddy Bench: one or two children from 9 months onwards.
