Chariot Deluxe Commuter 1 Child Bike Trailer
Closeouts. Chariot's Deluxe Commuter 1 child bike trailer offers the safety of a five-point seatbelt system and a durable aluminum frame. With a large cockpit that allows for older kids and helmets, an adjustable suspension system and plenty of storage space, this chariot is the luxury ride of bike trailers.
Reviewed by Ryan from Oregon on Friday, June 27, 2014I've owned several bike trailers and this is the best by far. The things that make it a great trailer, unfortunately make it a meh stroller. Short version is buy it if you want a great trailer for a great deal.
Couple of comments:
The center of gravity is directly over the axle. This makes the suspension highly effective and the balance fore/aft makes the trailer track well and hook up to hitch is a breeze.
This same attribute makes for a lousy stroller. With or without the youngin installed, the slightest downforce on the handles causes the front wheels (an $80 purchase on the side) lift off the ground. The stroller wheels effectively keep the unit level, but nothing more. They went back...
The cover & flaps are all nice. My only complaint is that you have to remove the outer layer, even when it's configured for mesh only to add/remove child. Would be nice if it had a zipper.
All said, I needed a trailer and am very happy. We have a BOB stroller and that will allow us to never use this as a stroller.
PS. To save you (dear reader) time, the unit is actually a Thule/Chariot Corsaire 1. It has Versa wing attachments and will accept the ski kit, stroller, jogger kits compatible with CTS.
Very solid, well built trailer with superb suspension. Immensely pleased with discount offered and superb service.Verified Buyer Reviewed by trailer gal from usa on Wednesday, April 30, 2014This is a Chariot Corsaire 1 and is a very spacious and comfortable ride. You will not be disappointed!
