LEAF – First view

By Posted in - In Arbeit on September 26th, 2014 12 Comments First view...

Der LEAF ist der neue faltbare City- und Touring Trailer von Carry Freedom. Den ersten Auftritt hatte der LEAF auf der Eurobike 2014, wo auch dieses erste, sehr informative Video entstand. Nick Lobnitz (unser Entwickler) hat den LEAF erst kurz vorher fertig gestellt und presentiert in dem Video sein Talent vor der Kamera

PS: Beim Lesen der Untertitel den schottischen Akzent nicht vergessen. :)

More about the LEAF:

Unsere Idee ist ein faltbare Fahrrad-/Shopping-Anhänger, den es in dieser Form auf den Markt nicht gibt. Und wir haben es „Leaf“ genannt. Im Folgenden werden die Vorzüge des Produktes kurz dargestellt:
Ein Einkaufs- und Transportanhänger für die Stadt
Ideal für Menschen in Großstädtewohnungen mit begrenzten Platzverhältnissen
Lässt sich schnell und klein zusammenfalten
Kann sehr viel tragen, bis 45 kg
Große Räder – Treppen und Bordsteinkanten sind einfach zu bewältigen
Einfach (auch ohne Fahrrad) zu bewegen auf den Wochenmarkt oder in Fußgängerzonen
Fasst großes Volumen, sodass z.B. größere Boxen transportiert werden können
Kann zwei Bier- oder Wasserkisten transportieren
Wird aus nachwachsende Holz und recycelt Aluminium hergestellt
Ist aufgrund der aufrechten Fahrposition gut zu sehen und somit sicher im Straßenverkehr

Carries 45 kg – Weighs 8 kg – Fits to all seat posts with one special bracket – Wheel size 16 “ – Basic load area 59.5 cm x 42.2 cm x 28.8 cm – Frame material aluminium 6000T6

Comes with hitch, safety strap, reflectors and manual. Folds flat for compact storing, travel and ease of use.

Options: Travel bag for the folded position, Shopping bag

Release date: Herbst 2015

      Hey Cesar, how are you? Mesh idea was thought of but rejected. We have to make the LEAF fir all climate conditions, so also rain and snow. And some trailers that use a mesh or a non-solid backing tend to flop and have no solid base. Thanks Bob!

      Hi Preston, Thanks for your comment. LEAF will be ready in September. Tern and QBP will have them soon after that. We are still putting the final touches on the product. It’s going to be very cool. We will also be at the Interbike in September with Tern. Keep checking back here. Bob

      Hi Stuart,
      We won’t be ready for June i am afraid. We are still optimizing the design. We want to make it perfect. Sorry not to have better news. Stay in touch on this blog.

    Hi,
    Another interested customer from Sweden, do you have a release date for the Leaf? Is It possible to preorder?

      Hi Joachim,
      thanks for your enquiry. Still not sure of the final date and the price yet. The Euro is causing us some headaches right now. I do not want to take pre-orders until i have all the details of price and delivery. Otherwise i don’t think it is fair to customers. Keep informed here on this website. We need a Swedish distributor ;>))) best regards Bob

    Hello again — will the Leaf be compatible with your surfboard trailer when they’re both complete?
    Thanks,
    – Leif

      Hi Leif,
      No, the LEAF and the Surf Trailer will be different. These days there are surf boards and paddle boards, but also ladders and with the surf trailer we can use our Looong Arm to pull a very long load. The angle of the LEAF would not allow for this. You could use the LEAF for carrying golf clubs for example. Regards. Bob
