SOMA Cycle, Inc Files Patent on Zigo LEADER™

Thursday, October 25, 2007

SOMA Cycle, Inc. (dba Zigo™) today announced that it has filed for patent protection covering numerous aspects of the Zigo LEADER. The patents were filed prior to the launch of the product at Interbike in September.

The filed patent cover numerous aspects of the product, including the innovative LeaderLink™ technology and the unique folding mechanism of the Child Pod™. This augments the Company’s intellectual property portfolio, which includes issued US patent no. 7,249,779, "Convertible stroller/tricycle."

The Zigo LEADER is a lightweight, foldable bicycle with an integrated child carrier and four distinct operating modes:

  • As a three-wheeled carrier bike, with an adult cyclist turning the pedals and one or two children in the forward-located Child Pod™, it is the ideal vehicle for transporting children or recreational cycling; while riding, parents can easily keep an eye on their kids in the forward-located Child Pod.
  • The Child Pod converts in seconds to a jogging stroller suitable for use on multiple surfaces.
  • The Child Pod is also configurable as a maneuverable standard-format stroller with caster wheels, allowing the LEADER to be used around the neighborhood, in the mall, or on a boardwalk or walking path.
  • Finally, the urban-style bicycle is light and maneuverable, with or without the detachable Child Pod.

The LEADER converts easily between these familiar and functional modes and still folds compactly for storage.
