The photos below show the S.I.T. As if not comfortable enough, the engineers also integrated a five-point harness buckle system that is child-proof. The skis go on and off with the push of a button (replacing the wheels). A- I think with longevity and quality you’ll be fine with either one! The Burley D’lite ($849+) is the best kid bike trailer for active parents who want to bring their kids and gear along on rides. Q- Does the ski attachment work to push the ski cart as a stroller? Its active suspension, premium seat pads, headrests and independently reclining seats make for a comfy ride. A- Personally I would go with the Thule because the infant sling on it is far superior to the Burley snuggler…in my opinion. I keep on reading that it’s hard to make turns with it when jogging. With any baby less than 3 months (and I personally would probably wait until 4 months) and sitting on their own, I would worry about them not being able to breathe properly since it is possible for them to slump a bit. Â. In 2016 they did improve the mechanism for receiving the trailer hitch into the Burley (see photo below). However, that is history with the Burley D’Lite X child bike trailer.

The D’Lite is versatile, but limited since it can’t be used for the first 6 months (or 3 months with the newer Snuggler model). Per our request, they sent us a D’Lite model to test out this summer. Even though there are not so many recline options (three recline positions- 110°, 115°, 120°), kids still love the available options! child + 20 lb.

Burley D’lite Bike Trailer Review Burley D’Lite Stroller Kit When my son was first born we didn’t have a ton of money and just went for a low-to-mid-level option, a predecessor to Bell’s Smooth Sailer Bike Trailer. Burley D'Lite X review vs Encore Burley added an adjustable headrest, which is awesome. The harness system secures the children safe during a ride. Personally, we believe that the trailer provides excellent protection for the child if we were to crash (though, again, would keep it away from the potential of being hit by traffic). The Snuggler snuggles and supports the child in a seated position. The Thule Cross seats recline more than the D’Lite X seats. Any guidance? We scoured eBay and Craiglist before buying a new one and found that the used Burleys were only slightly cheaper. The trailer hitch (where it hooks onto your bike) is one other area I would love to be improved. The retractable sunshade moves up and down for all heights of riders, and is flexible to allow a little adjustability between a small child and a taller child riding together. The Burley D’Lite X features a premium 20” wheel, which, according to us, is aggressive and unforgiving on the trails and stable given its wider width. It is the kind of investment you make and then keep for 20 years for your own use and then to be passed on to other families (or your own grandchildren). – Great open space which is perfect especially for carrying bigger kids, without compromising its weight and sleek design. The flap that covers the cargo space further secures the top, and you do not have to worry about hurling your gear and stuff as you get into the adventure mood with the kids. It boasts of a huge 50-liter cargo area in the ear that can swallow your adventure gear. The kids are well-protected from the elements and the plastic covering performs well, even when cold (no cracking, remains pliable, etc.) The wheel also has a modern reflective taping, which further makes this trailer the best yet in the high-end class of bike trailers. The only thing I would advise is making sure the handlebar is screwed tightly. It’s comfortable for the kids.   The We! However, when in recline mode, the rear storage area becomes inaccessible, but that’s not a matter.   Â, The D’Lite has a great suspension system that keeps riders comfortable, even on less-than-smooth roads. There is a small vent in the back and then front can be completely open, but I think the option to open the back window completely and open at least a vent on the side windows would help considerably. Both companies turn out great products, several steps above your average bike trailer. Click here for the new . It has a large “cab” space that accommodates 1-2 children with bowed out sides for more shoulder room.   We love the fact that the D’Lite has a large enough “trunk” to allow for the extra and bulkier gear you need to carry for colder excursions. The extra height is perfect for off road riding and when you know there are going to be obstacles. It’s made, really, for pulling. The wheels come off very easily so getting the trailer to this position takes less than 2 minutes.

To be perfectly honest, I’ve gone back and forth on my opinion about it. Therefore, you can simply haul it around in your vehicle's trunk without worrying about it being space-greedy. It easily converts to a double stroller with the included kit. While we haven’t used this feature a ton yet, it makes the trailers so much more versatile for long-term use.  The D’Lite also folds down quickly and easily for storage and travel. It is the lightest double stroller we have tested and it has been quite noticeable on some larger hills and when I have been exhausted after a typical brutal sleep with two kids under three years old. Usually that number can be fudged a bit (shhhhh), but this is one trailer I would not do so with. Let’s get this out of the way now, the Burley D’lite bicycle trailer retails at an eye watering £675. – The flexibility to be able to quickly convert it into a cargo trailer at any time (for use in all modes), – A fully adjustable handle bar that doubles as a roll bar, – Large cargo space in the back that can even accommodate a balance bike along with a plethora of other gear. Built for adventure, the Burley D'Lite double bike trailer has active suspension and premium seating for your little adventure buddies. Handlebar height: 30-51 inches or 76.2-129.5 cm. If it is not, it slips and that makes jogging very hard (but it’s an easy fix!) The Burley D’Lite meets and exceeds the ASTM F1975-09 safety standards. Definitely start with a double. Both the Burley and the Chariot Cross are great cross-overs for biking/jogging. I really love the amount of storage  behind the kids and the small mesh pocket that hangs at the opening to keep smaller objects from being lost in the larger cavity of space. The D’Lite excels at comfortably carrying larger children (J, at 5.5 years, fits in it well- better than any other trailer he has been in) and being available as an all-around excellent hauler for many years even after your children outgrow it. See old (left) vs. new (right) below. **This review was updated in July 2016, see revisions below! The seats offer a passive suspension feel for the riders, and this is what we call Fantastic!

The first two trailers from brands other than Burley that came up in my search cost well over $500. Where the front weather guard attaches to the trailer is well made and functional – we’ve never had it pop open (an issue we have dealt with often while using other similar trailers). **In the photo below, you’ll notice the old receiving mechanism. You CAN open up the back of the trailer, but it then exposes the children to bugs, etc. NOTE: in 2016, Burley updated their recommendation to starting at 3 months. The seat pads are also premium, see every reason to invest in this bike trailer, which further maintains comfort and safety for the kids. Due to the necessity of having to keep so many kids warm and happy, she has become an expert in kids' gear and loves being able to share it with others. Not with the Burley D’ Lite X, though! The rear portion of the trailer also features a separate rain cover. Smooth ride, spacious interior and rear storage space. I mostly put water bottles there, but also put my keys, money and snacks I would like to keep handy. My theory is that the straps bug her ears. NOTE: Burley does not recommended biking with any children in the trailer under 1 year old. It pulls smooth like butter as a trailer and strolls smooth like butter as a stroller. child + gear) is totally doable to tow. I’m not recommending that is what YOU do, but like to be transparent here. The new fabric is much softer, but I also think that babies get hotter quicker in it. Burley D’Lite $629 USD burley.com The Burley D’Lite trailer comes with a tow arm and hitch as well as an integrated handlebar. Now, you slide it in, a locking button stops it where it needs to be to receive the bag pin and then the “leash” attaches easily. Even when tucked inside our little honorable passive riders can have panoramic views even in reclined positions, like bosses! Previously they were screwed directly into the waistband, which is where it failed (not fun when you’re miles out and have to ski back). I tried it out for the first time to see how it handled with about 100lbs of weight on a local greenway trail. Its transportation is as easy as the word itself. The back of the seats also have an open space for the back of helmets to fit through so they aren’t pushing little heads forward. Even though it was slightly bigger in the trunk, it is comparatively smaller compared to other folded double bike trailers in the market that consume much trunk space.

If you know you have kids who are going to fight in the trailer, you might want to go with the wider trailer. There is a cylindrical joint where the pin passes through to secure the bike trailer on the socket. While many of the roads are paved in our area, we choose to ride on the older gravel roads especially in the height of the summer to avoid the tourist traffic. I have not used the Honey Bee though, but I have been super impressed with the D’Lite! A– I guess it depends on how big your 6 year old is. The Burley D’Lite is the brand’s most affordable high-end option, but also has all the comfort … Both are GREAT strollers and you wouldn’t be disappointed with either…but my kids go in the Thule infant sling for walks in a matter of days after birth. Plus of course, the price can be a distinguishing factor as the Burley D’Lite X is a premium bike trailer and deserves a price that matches its status as a high-end bike trailer. Burley makes the statement that the reason they don’t have side windows that open is because the drag that would be caused by the wind flowing through the trailer would make it not only really hard to tow, but also hard to navigate. The pockets to keep toys and snacks are also super appreciated. Has anyone else noted thar the d light needs more air flow or had issues in the rain? What really sold us on the Burley over all the other brands was the resale value. Burley. First off, it comes with an adjustable handlebar that becomes handy when using the stroller mode. I also agree that their recommendation for 3 months is for sure the minimum I would be comfortable with also. Available at REI, 100% Also any considerations on new vs used?

Convertible to a jogger or stroller (multisport functionality). A lot of my friends have the Cougar 2, but have yet to see a Burley around! I actually haven’t found something similar, because many do not compare models from different brands. We noticed that upon folding the wheels easily pop off and slip into the storage bag that comes along with the bike trailer in the box. However, as always, the opinions expressed here are completely and honestly our own.

The Burley trailers are unique because the seats can easily be unclipped from the top of the trailer to convert it into a cargo-hauler for kid-free errands. The wheels on the Burley D Lite are definitely premium. It is a bit pricey but for a good reason. While we understand the concern, we haven’t had that issue with other trailers that do have windows that open, so can’t speak on it personally. The Burley D’lite Child Trailer is one of a few high-end bike trailers. Additionally, it gives it a better clearance, so the kids and the trailer are not exposed to any matter on the trails and roads. Since most children fall asleep to the lull of a trailer ride, this is an important feature. We’ve used the Burley for skiing numerous times this winter, despite an overall lack of a ton of snow (gah!) Now, apart from just privacy, which can be beneficial in some scenarios, the windows are made of UPF 50+ protection that prevents 98% plus UV light.

Burley categorizes the Burley Minnow, Burley Bee, and the Honey Bee as recreation bike trailers. It is a bike trailer that has all the safety and comfort features incorporated without a compromise or sacrifice. The push button quick releases make taking the wheels off super easy. Amelia started TMM in 2012 to help encourage all families (including her own) to get outside, no matter the weather. A- It could be…just as much as any fixed-wheel jogging stroller. To be specific, the Burley D’Lite X only weighs less than 30 pounds. The entire process of attaching and detaching the D’Lite X trailer’s tow arm to a bike is easy peasy! The Burley D’LIte is also a little wider and provides more elbow room. For us, we consider the Burley Honey Bee as the best budget trailer that doubles as a stroller. A- You could do that….but you wouldn’t have a ski in the front to balance it out (unless you attached a wheel or something). Burley D’Lite is a bike trailer best suited for active parents who are willing to spend slightly more money to get a large number of premium features. The storage space also won our hearts. While the price is high, it is comparable to others on the market and will last for the life of the trailer. The other one I would recommend for bigger kids is the Croozer, but the airflow isn’t quite as good and it’s a bit heavier….. Q- I was convinced that the Burley D’lite was the right fit until I started reading reviews about the jogger. The entire process, you only need an Allen key and nothing else a perfect “hold my beer!” move. Ski Kit is for use primarily on groomed trails. The bike trailer also has wheel guards that protect against unforeseen obstacles on the trails or on the roads. It also provides a bit of a barrier between riders if you are hauling more than one child (which our kids tend to like).

The skid guard that has innovative reflectors help protect the trailer while you pedal the joy out and your riders either cheer or make fun of you! The bowed-out sides make a significant difference. So what do I take, CX 1/2 or the D’Lite? As a mom, she quickly learned that the secret to sanity was to spend more time outside where tantrums don't see quite so bad. After receiving the stroller it was immediately apparent that this is an exceptionally bulky stroller and difficult to store. This high-end bike trailer, whose price point is hugely deserving, is a luxurious way to tow the kids around for adventure, family rides, to and fro school rides, and when commuting with kids. If you live in an area with skiing available and love to do it, this is an excellent way to be able to get out as a family and have a place to pull children and/or have a back-up when they get tired. We’ve also been using the Baby Snuggler($75) with L. Recommended for kids aged 6-24 months, it’s a great accessory to keep kids snuggled, as the name implies.
