Turbospoke turbocharges your bike

Published on: 6th July 2012


Turbospoke – the bicycle exhaust system – is the re-imagining of the classic ‘playing-card-in-the-spokes’ concept and is a unique product for the toy and bicycle sectors.

Using variable plastic ‘Motocards’ and a megaphone exhaust pipe, Turbospoke attaches to any kind of bike and generates awesome, realistic motorbike sounds. Turbospoke is simple to fit and includes everything to get you up and vrooming in minutes. The best thing is that Turbospoke contains no electronics and doesn’t require batteries to make it work. With 87% of children in the UK already having a bicycle, Turbospoke is a perfect fit in all types of toy and gift shops. Turbospoke retails for £17.99, and the Motocard Refill packs retail for £2.50.

Mike Fitzgerald of Ernest the Bear said: “Turbospoke is such a simple and innovative idea. Almost every child already has a bike so there is a ready market for this product. As soon as I saw it, I knew it would be perfect for our customers and the sales success to date in the USA is extremely encouraging.”

Turbospoke is distributed in the UK and Ireland by Ernest the Bear Toys of Bedford, UK. Despite being designed in Ireland, Turbospoke is very new to the UK and Irish markets. Its largest markets to date have been the USA & Canada where in 2011 Turbospoke experienced a sell-out success through a network of over 1000 independent toy stores.

Ernest the Bear was established fifteen years ago and has earned a reputation for distributing high quality toys and collectables, including outdoor and cycle toys. It regards Turbospoke as an enormously exciting addition to its range. Ernest’s own pre-launch Turbospoke trials, conducted with children of various ages and interests, produced amazingly positive reaction to the product.
