LEARN TO RIDE BIKE
Canadian Tire identified the kids bike segment as a category ripe for innovation. Supercycle is the private label brand exclusive to Canadian Tire. The core aspect of the innovation was to focus on a bike platform to explore and develop a child’s first bike that will grow and adapt to different stages as they learn. In addition to learning other aspects of the bike platform, design was researched and conceptually explored. This product launched spring 2017 with a nationwide advertising campaign.
Canadian Tire wanted to better capitalize on opportunities within the kids bike category. CTR has existing leadership in this area and offering unique product helps to drive traffic with young families.
