DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (March 7, 2020) – American Flat Track announced today a newly-forged partnership with STACYC Inc. – the creator of the original and patented children’s electric balance bike.
Since its inception in 2016, STACYC has made a significant impact in the market by introducing kids, ages 3-7, to motorcycles in a less intimidating and more engaging way. The original STACYC EDRIVE model was specifically designed as a tool to bridge the gap from push bikes to motorcycles by giving kids a bike that allows them to learn balance, throttle control and braking at their own pace, on an extremely lightweight and low-impact platform.
“Our Mission at STACYC is pretty simple: Create the Next Generation of Riders globally,” said Mike Dettmers, Director of Business Development of STACYC Inc. “We know that providing kids an experience that they will never forget is a big part of truly capturing their attention in a world full of distractions. Allowing kids the opportunity to race on the same track as the pros becomes an experience that is burned into their memories for a lifetime. The love for two-wheels runs deep in the veins of the STACYC crew and we are working hard to pass that stoke on to the future enthusiast of our sport. American Flat Track is an amazing program and Flat Track is an epic discipline. We are excited to do our part to drive more and more kids to the excitement of motorcycles.”
No stranger to the American Flat Track series, STACYC has become a fan favorite after multiple demo rides and exhibition races at select AFT rounds in 2019. Fans can look forward to an expansion of this partnership with STACYC demos and activations present at the 2020 DAYTONA TT, Texas Half-Mile and So-Cal Half-Mile events. The Texas HM and So-Cal HM events will also feature STACYC exhibition races – information on registration to follow.
“STACYC does great work of sparking a love of motorcycles in future generations of riders,” said Helen Pardee, Director of Marketing of American Flat Track. “Their love of riding and our love of racing make for a natural partnership and we look forward to working with the STACYC team.”
