More than just a bike trailer.
If you want your kids to grow up loving the feel of wind in their hair and wheels on the pavement, it's smart to get 'em early, and the Burley D'Lite Child Trailer allows you to do just that. It's set up to haul two munchkins (or an equivalent amount of gear) safely and securely behind your bike, but it is also compatible with Burley's stroller, jogger, and ski kits, so you can enjoy four seasons and as many activities with the whole fam. Features like the helmet-friendly head space and bowed-out elbow room make sure comfort is a priority, while the aluminum roll cage, UV-blocking windows, and five-point harness mean your rugrats can ride in safety while you get your workout in. The seats are padded and easily collapsible, so you can load in rocks and bags of sand if you feel like pulling some extra weight, and Burley decked the harnesses out with its Spring Integrated Technology, which means they'll always stay snug and tangle free.

- Q & A
It is a racket.
Beware- Burley trailers are packaged for single-parent households only and a possible safety issue... I can't believe it is a "premium" trailer. Product not usable out of the box - it comes with a SINGLE hitch (bracket) that must be permanently screwed into the back wheel in order to attach the trailer. So, if your child has two parents with their own bikes, then tough luck - only one of you can pedal with the child. I called Burley customer service and got no sympathy - on top of the several hundred dollars that I just shelled out for the trailer, they want $25 + shipping for the darn 2 inch size extra part to screw into the other parent's bike so that the trailer can be swapped. Not to mention that we can't go on a bike trip as a family until the part comes in. Also, the so-called "flex" connector apparently requires "break in". When the trailer is assembled and newly attached to the bike- it will flip on the side, if the bike is on the ground (unlike the commercial). The "flex" only works, if you >>gently<< lower the bike AND put your foot on the trailer arm to prevent the trailer from flipping. Try it. This doesn't give me much safety confidence in case of an accident with the sudden fall of the bike to the side. This is my first and last Burley product.
Burley and Backcountry are Great
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
Before I review the trailer itself, I want to share the great experience I have had with Backcountry. I ordered the 2015 model, initially. When I assembled it, there were two holes in the fabric and a third one starting. On a Saturday evening, I chatted with a rep online and within minutes I had a paid UPS label and my replacement trailer was on its way. Two days later, I had the new trailer. Upon opening, I noticed some differences, and when I looked at the invoice I found out why. They had replaced my 2015 model with the new one, and had used the replacement as a promo, reducing the price to match my older model. That was above and beyond anything I had expected. Now, on to the trailer:
Right from the get go, the trailer has everything my 2 year old daughter and I need. She has a padded seat, easy to reach storage pockets for her water bottle, and plenty of room. The folding and removal of wheels makes storage and transport very simple as well.
As far as comfort, this trailer is amazing. My daughter has a combination very short body, and overly-large head. This lead to the worry that the seatback would be too high, and the need for a larger helmet to fit her would mean she would be forced to face down the entire trip. As you can see from the photo, the recessed head pocket takes care of this perfectly. She is extremely comfortable the entire time. The only time she is upset is when we ride past a park and don't stop, or when we start heading up the driveway back to the house.
So far, over the past two weeks, we have covered approximately 35 miles, only about 8 of that being on paved or cement surfaces. This trailer has handled it all. We have used the trailer with the entire front cover rolled up, just the screen down, and with the rain cover down. Either way, I never realize it is behind me. I had to buy a bar-end mirror to help ease my mind that the trailer is still behind me. Even on rough trails, it is a breeze to pull, and the attachment allows me to lay my bike completely flat without affecting the trailer. It hasn't happened yet, but this is very reassuring in case I ever crash, knowing the trailer will still be stable. So far, there hasn't been an area of concern for the trailer. With this being my first ever bike trailer, I don't believe I would ever buy anything else if I ever needed to.
