Sportelite 20

The Story

'It’s hard to say who’s more excited about Fred’s new Sportelite.

'Almost every square on the family’s calendar is filled in with scrawled notes about appointments, school trips, and extracurricular activities. Fred’s mum Louise catches our gaze, and shrugs as if to say ‘yeah, life’s pretty busy in this household.’ The family don’t stay still – least of all 11-year-old Fred, who’s jubilantly yee-hawing as he bunny-hops around the yard. 

For his frazzled parents – no longer his private taxi drivers – the benefits of the Sportelite are perhaps even more significant: “It certainly makes life easier for us,” agrees Louise. “But perhaps the best thing is that he gets such a kick out of riding it too, he loves being independant.” Husband Paul pipes up: “What he loves more is the chance to reenact those heroic moments of the cross-country World Cup he’s seen on TV.”
