NEW JERSEY, August 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Chrome Cherry raises $25,000 in funding for the YBIKE Evolve project
Today the YBIKE Evolve, the world's first 3-in-1 smart bike for kids, has quickly reached its funding goal on Kickstarter with 15 days remaining. Now available at $95, the new Evolve reinvents the bike by saving you money and space.
The Evolve trike-bike "evolves" as your child's riding ability progresses. It begins as a trike to develop peddling skills, before transforming into a balance trike, and then finally into an advanced balance bike - all with a simple and easy mechanism. With total funding secured before the end of the 30-day period, Chrome Cherry can now focus on delivering to their backers in August along with some exciting stretch goals.
The Evolve's 3-in-1 design helps develop balance and co-ordination in children, and its smart functionality saves you money and space. Jaco Kruger, Co-founder of Chrome Cherry Design Studios and MD of YBIKE, explains: "We cannot thank our backers enough for supporting us and our project. As parents, our team knows how expensive and time-consuming it is to keep buying a new bike every time your child grows out of the old one. And this fun and unique idea can become a reality, thanks to the Kickstarter community."
Training wheels can teach habits that later need to be unlearnt again, but the Evolve allows children to balance instinctively at the same time as having fun. Its adjustable seat accommodates the growth of your child from the age of 2 upwards, and can be easily transformed by adjusting the back wheels in a few minutes - without the need for specialized tools or technical know-how.
Jean van der Merwe, Co-Founder and Design Director, explains: "The Evolve is the result of years of work on design and structure, so that it looks sleek as well as being smart and effective - and thanks to the Kickstarter community we can now focus on final production and getting this to parents and their children."
