About Com-Com

Safety with communication, guidance and independent riding.

Riding as a family brings a sense of freedom, exploration and bonding that results in lasting memories and healthy habits. However, family riding may not always be a “ride in the park,” especially for those with children who like to speed ahead. Many parents have experienced those helpless moments when their children ride too close to a busy road and think, “Will they hear me if I scream STOP”?

Com-Com was developed to prevent these frightening situations by putting parents in direct communication with their children as if they are right next to them. Com-Com is specially made for easy communication using a convenient button on the handle bar grip so as to maintain balance and continued movement. Com-Com will allow parents to communicate with their child from a distance and convey safety through guidance.

What Parents Say

"That was definitely a more “calming” bike ride..."

"A much more relaxing bike ride then having to scream to slow down!"

"A new way to play that gives independence"

Mom: "How many times do you ask “what did you say?” when we are riding without the Com-Com
Kid: "100 times!"
