Raleigh, NC Apr 21 – Bicycle attachment helps bikers and their dogs stay trim, now redesigned to fit more bicycle makes/models and work with more dog sizes.

Norwegian-based manufacturer Springer AS recently named Springer America the exclusive North American importer of the Springer bicycle attachment, used successfully by over 500,000 dog-loving bicyclists, mushers and K9 corps around the world since 1988.

Springer AS signed the deal with native Norwegian Kjell Ottesen, President of the Raleigh, North Carolina-based company, to increase sales and improve customer satisfaction in the United States and Canada. To support a greater North American presence, Springer AS will provide financial support for product marketing.

The Springer bicycle attachment, which allows cyclists to exercise themselves and their pets at the same time, uses a low-mounted, heavy-duty steel spring to absorb up to 90% of the force of a dog’s unexpected tugs, enabling bike riders to keep their balance, while protecting their dogs from traffic, pedals, and wheels.  Its patented safety release frees the dog instantly if he gets caught around a tree or hydrant.

“We are very excited to be able to offer American and Canadian cyclists the opportunity to bring together two of their greatest loves – their bikes and their dogs – by offering the Springer directly to consumers via our website and through selected retailers and high-quality catalogs,” says Ottesen.

In the latest innovation, a new Z-shaped adaptor was designed to give the user greater flexibility in where the Springer fits on the bike.
