Trailer Child Seats
Trailers are a great option to get out on longer rides. They provide a safe environment for the really small kiddos and for those that tend to doze off in the weirdest of circumstances. We both have owned trailers and used them in Summer and Winter. Here are our picks for best in tow.
Tout Terrain Singletrailer
The Singletrailer is the ideal bicycle trailer for all bikers who want to enjoy the mountains together with their families. With the Singletrailer real mountain bike tours are possible, even across the roughest terrain: The child sits, gently suspended and cushioned (travel 200 mm), in a chassis produced from extra-light but highly durable CrMo steel with a roll bar. The five-point seat belt ensures additional safety. The Singletrailer is just 45 cm wide – and therefore narrower than your mountain bike – and weighs only 9.5 kg. Fits up to 5 years.

Tout Terrain Streamliner
Thanks to its suspension, the Streamliner trailer bike is perfectly suited to real rough terrain cycling and extended touring. Once the child has grown out of the Singletrailer the fun really starts because the offspring can come along without the physical demands being too much for the child. It also learns early on to keep the balance and is trained in the motor activity. Ideal for 4-7 year old crowd.

Thule Cougar One-Child Carrier
Multi-sport capable...you can run, bike and cross-country ski with this trailer. We both have owned this trailer and can sing its praises. With the ability to adjust the suspension, you can dial in a comfy ride for the kiddos. For info how to convert to a fat bike trailer in the winter see our blog post.
