The Chariot bicycle trailer conversion kit (item # 20100503) is an accessory kit that is specially designed to add optional bicycle trailer functionality to Chariot Cheetah 1 and 2, Cougar 1 and 2, and CX 1 and 2 child carrier models. Features include a lightweight but rugged design, simple ezClick push-button attachment to a carrier's integrated VersaWing 2.0 brackets, A semi-permanent axle mount connection to bicycles, an included quick-release skewer, and the ability to store the kit elements on the Chariot carrier when it is not in use, a 90-degree turn range and pull wagon functionality.
Fast Bicycle Trailer Conversion Through Modular Design
Chariot child carriers provide outdoor enthusiasts who are also parents or caregivers with a choice of how to maintain or embark on an active lifestyle, while simultaneously introducing young children to the world around them. Unlike other carriers that assume a want and need for a standard stroller, or a static variation of it, Chariot carriers provide users with a carrier that can be customized at any time to accommodate several popular outdoor related pursuits through an unique modular approach to child transportation in which the carrier's standard two-wheeled chassis is combined with one of a variety of conversion kits (sold separately). The Chariot bicycle trailer conversion kit (item # 20100503), is specifically designed to quickly and conveniently transform all Chariot adventure carriers (Cheetah 1 and 2, Cougar 1 and 2, and CX 1 and 2 models) into a bicycle trailer by way of the unique VersaWing 2.0 bracket system build into those carriers.
Easy Attachment to Carrier VersaWing 2.0 Brackets
The Chariot bicycle trailer conversion kit is simple by design, with tow components consisting of only a hitcharm with tethered security pin, paired with an axle-mount ezHitch. All Chariot carriers have two VersaWing 2.0 brackets built into the lower front section of their chassis. The left one of these serves as the connection point of the hitcharm to the carrier chassis. To connect the hitcharm, insert it horizontally into the VersaWing bracket, ensuring that the ezClick button points up. Pressing the ezClick button will allow it to move further into the bracket and snap securely into place. A security pin tethered to the hitcharm is then inserted into the versaWing bracket for extra security. A strap attached to the hitcharm is also looped around the bicycle frame to ensure a connection in the unlikely event of separation during use. The axle-mount ezHitch component is secured to the towing bicycle's axle, using either an existing nut or quick-release configuration, or the supplied quick-release skewer. Once connected, the ezHitch hangs down from the axle. The ball-and-socket end of the hitcharm slips into the funnel-like opening of the ezHitch, and is secured by a security pin. This unique connection type allows the trailer up to a 90-degree turn range. Adjustment of the hitcharm connection to the VersaWing bracket allows for optional pull wagon functionality.
