Burley Design Encore Bike Trailer
Some days 24 hours just doesn't seem like enough; get more out of your days with the Burley Encore. Bike, stroll, jog or ski with the ones you love to your favorite spots in town or explore the great outdoors and discover sights unseen.
Ready to Bike
The Encore comes complete with a tow bar and Standard Forged Hitch making it ready to bike out of the box. Adapters are sold separately for bikes with hooded drop outs and bolted axles.
A lightweight durable aluminum frame is expertly designed to tow children as well as cargo safely and smoothly. 600 D blue and black polyester stand up to most weather conditions. Tinted windows on the side panels provide UV protection and the tear-drop design offers a large viewing area for passengers. A sunshade tucks up into pocket for cloudy days or secures with Velcro tabs when the sun is shining.
Spacious Cargo Area
Whether it is your camping gear, soccer equipment, groceries or diaper bag, the Encore provides ample cargo space. When not transporting children, seat buckles may be released and the full interior may be used to carry cargo.
Side pockets on either side of the trailer, spacious foot-well and rear-cargo divider all help reduce the need to stop for adjustments.
Seating for One or Two
A hammock style seat means that your children are not sitting directly on the floor of the trailer.The Helmet Pocket is made of mesh and allows plenty of room for a child and their helmet; this safety feature makes the ride more comfortable.
Rectangular foam seat pads covered in air mesh are easy to clean and wear well which means you are out doing more and home cleaning less.
Fold Flat Design
Front to back fold flat design allows you to compact the trailer in a streamlined manner after releasing two red latches at the top frame bar. The trailer’s 20 inch pneumatic, push button wheels offer plenty of ground clearance for all riding situations, and easy removal for storage or transport.
Hub Engaged Parking Brake
Hub engaged parking brake can be set when you arrive at your destination. Located just below two rear-reflectors, the bright red brake can be easily be set and disengaged with your foot.
ASTM standards for bicycle child trailers address such safety criteria as frame strength, impact, structural integrity in rollover, tip-over resistance, coupling security and system fatigue tests. The standards also specify acceptable colors, reflector placement, and the use of safety flags for increased visibility.
Designed with your children in mind
Not all child trailers are created equal. All Burley child trailers meet or exceed the ASTM F1975-09 standards (for U.S. and international) for bicycle child trailers. For us, safety isn't an afterthought, it's our first thought. Unlike many other child trailers on the market today, ours are tested in-house during the earliest design phases to ensure that safety and reliability are built in from the beginning. We've developed testing protocols that are the toughest out there. We think your children are worth it.
Burley Design Encore is compatible with conversion kits so you can stroll, jog or ski in addition being ready to bike

Finally the unit collapses down very easily and quickly with two quick release buttons the wheels pop off. It can all be stored in the trailer and has a fairly flat form factor once packed away.
Check out the in depth videos on the official Burley site if you want to see their products in action. I would highly reccommend this product
It is very well built and rides super smooth! I love the storage in the back as well. When looking for a trailer, I really wanted a bench seat vs. the hammock style seating and I have to say, I am very pleased with the seating in the Encore. My kids really enjoy riding in it and I love how sleek the trailer looks. The quality is exceptional but it better be for the price, right?!?! :)
At the end of the day, I have never owned a bike trailer before this one so I have nothing to compare it to BUT we love it and would definitely recommend it.
My ONLY issue with it is the flag doesn't do a very good job of standing straight up. It doesn't fall out though.
Our (now 1) year old son absolutely loves it! He has plenty of room for his toys, he seems very comfortable, and we have a ton of space in the back for our stuff. We spent at least 4 hours riding one day and he enjoyed every bit of it.
We did look at getting one with a suspension system, but the lack of one has not been a problem. I do reduce the air pressure on the tires a little bit when I know we will be biking on gravel.
So far, we have put at least 100 miles on it, about 1/3 on packed gravel and the rest on pavement. It is also our go-to stroller for when we take him to our older kid's ball games. The larger tires are great whenever we have rougher ground that the stroller needs to go through.
Assembly went very well...much easier than expected. For the most part, the build quality is very well done. The only item I would change is to better reinforce the receiver where the tow bar attaches. I learned a quick lesson as I had nicked a trail gate with the trailer and the plastic broke. It stayed together fine and we safely made it back to our vehicle, but I had to order a replacement receiver. The replacement came in quickly and was easy to put on.
The trailer does fold down very nicely, with the wheels and tow bar quickly detached. However, it is still a good size when folded. We have a larger car and it just fits in the trunk. We normally take our SUV, which has plenty of room.
The only additional item we bought for it was a light for the local department store. There is a loop on the top back of the trailer that the light easily hooks onto.
My wife and I are looking forward to many, many more miles with this trailer!
