Bike Cargo Trailer

The versatility of a bike cargo trailer allows users to haul just about anything behind a bicycle, from small children to pets to survival items needed when a disaster demands that you “bug out” of your area. Most trailers designed for use with bicycles attach to the back of the bike via a hitch and provide two-wheeled stability along with weatherproof covering, interior pockets, and mesh windows for air flow when necessary.

Although one-wheeled bike trailers are easier to maneuver, they are not capable of carrying as much weight as two-wheeled trailers.

Extrawheel Voyager Bike Trailer

Although a single wheel trailer, it balances cargo by propping loads on either side of the wheel, allowing for tighter maneuvering on curvy, obstruction-filled pathways. In addition, the wheel remains firmly grounded no matter how bumpy the terrain gets due to loads sitting under the wheel axle at the gravity's center. Voyager does suggest that heavier cargo should be placed near the bottom of the bike trailer for more secure traveling.

More features of the Extrawheel include:

  • Users can use different types of front wheels on their bike trailer
  • Flag, fender, and choice of Extrawheel quick release or Extrawheel nuts
  • Weighs only 8.6 pounds and commands an overall length of 52 inches
  • Carrying capacity is 66 pounds

Electric Powered Bike Trailer by Ridekick

For help with getting up those hills while carrying cargo, the Ridekick provides a boost of electricity with a bike cargo trailer capable of toting 100 pounds. Even the steepest hills can be conquered by assistance from a 500-watt motor that pushes your bicycle up to 19 miles per hour.

The motorized trailer will take you about 15 miles before batteries need recharged, depending on the weight of the load and the rider, condition of the terrain and whether tire pressures of the trailer and bike's tires are at optimal levels.

With Two Different Warranties!

Remember in the event of a bug out, where you might appreciate the motorized trailer assist, a small solar panel, might be enough to recharge once you are no longer near power. Of course, the Ridekick doesn't provide a lot of cargo room, so you'll have to decide which is more important, a power boost or a few more items for survival.
