Product feature: Xtracycle’s Magic Carpet

My DiamondBack Xtracycle serves me for 2 purposes; the first one is to do errands and the other one is to ride around with my children. When we saw the Xtracycle’s Magic Carpet at Interbike, I had to take one home. The Magic Carpet is made out of high density, closed-cell foam with a high visibility reflective strip around it.

The Magic Carpet is simple to install, just wrap it over your SnapDeck and you are ready to cruise!

Is it comfortable? Well, I wouldn’t really know since I’m the pilot, so here’s a little video of my 7 yr old briefly describing the Magic Carpet:

The Magic Carpet’s MSRP is $39, for those who carry passengers and don’t have DIY skills like myself, the Magic Carpet is totally worth it.

    Well, that video sold me on the Magic Carpet…besides, the foam pad I made here at the “Secret Lab” really isn’t so cushy — my boy says “ouch” when I go over big bumps.

    Looks good. Is the piping reflective?

    Clancy — yes, the piping around the entire pad is reflective.

    Nice! It’s really good the see XtraFolks getting around to the add on items that can make their machine even more useful, and that we’ve all had to figure out on our own up to now.
