About Us

We design the best bike load trailers in the world. Read all about what we are, what we do and what we believe in. The first question is why use bike trailers at all?

Our trailers are...
Efficient - A bicycle trailer is more efficient than rucksack or panniers. Trailers isolate your bike from the load so you don't waste energy wiggling the load.
Safe - A bicycle towing a bicycle trailer handles normally. It corners predictably, and remains manoeuverable.
Practical - Bicycle trailers are easier to live with. They're easy to pack, convenient to hitch, and light to walk with. Our trailers also flatten easily for storage.
Another choice - A bike/trailer combination is a good addition to your car and public transport, offering another way to carry. But bicycle trailers and bikes can also piggyback on cars and trains.

Why trailers are better...
Huge capacity - Our bicycle trailers will carry up to 300 Litres / 90 kg of luggage on a normal bike. You will hardly ever carry this much, but you could do a week's shopping for a family of four in one trip.
Cycling "feels" normal - A two wheel bicycle trailer lets your bike handle normally, even if carrying a lot. It corners normally. It's as manoeuverable as normal, and it simply feels normal when cycling. However it takes longer to brake and accelerate, and hills seem steeper (going down as well as up).
No damage to your bike - Carrying heavy loads in bicycle panniers or mono-wheel trailers needs a strong bike with strong wheels and frame. Two wheel bicycle trailers are rotationally isolated from your bike, so even suspended or lightweight bikes don't suffer.
