NEW: Storage Cover Dog

The Croozer Storage Cover is now available also for our dog trailers! It protects your Croozer from dust and dirt, when it’s not in use and parked outside. Be sure to clean your Croozer thoroughly before storing it for a longer period of time. Ideally, place a moisture-absorbing packet inside the trailer or remove the Storage Cover periodically to allow the trailer to air out.

Croozer Baby Seat ergonomics

Have you ever wondered why the Croozer Baby Seat holds your baby in a semi-upright position 🤔❓ Just like in an infant car seat, it is not possible for your baby to lie completely flat in the Croozer. The semi-upright position makes it possible for the harness system to hold your child securely in the seat. This ergonomic position provides the necessary support for your infant’s back, neck and head and is ideal for their delicate spines 👶❤️😌 In addition, the Baby Seat is mounted to the trailer frame at eight attachment sites. This system is not only incredibly stable, but also absorbs shocks and vibrations! The infant “floats” in a safe and secure baby hammock inside the passenger compartment of the child trailer 👼 The high sides of the Baby Seat offer additional stability for your child! On our website, you will find even more infos about carrying a baby in the Croozer.

E-Bike + trailer = ?

Am I allowed to pull my Croozer using an E-bike / Pedelec 🤔❓ Yes, you are! Pedelecs without licence number and with an electric motor providing pedal assist up to a speed of 25 km/h (15 mph) are allowed to pull a child trailer. Just to be sure, we recommend to ask the bike manufacturer for details. And Croozer has the right hitch!
However please keep an eye on your speed and don´t ride too fast. Although the Croozer itself is able to handle higher speeds, your young passengers will be much safer if you ride more slowly. Keep in mind: in some countries (e.g. Germany ), more powerful pedelecs (S-Pedelecs) and throttle-operated e-bikes that can travel at speeds above 25 km/h (15 mph) are not allowed to pull a bicycle trailer. Accordingly, no other type of motorised vehicle, like a moped or scooter, can be used for towing a trailer. Every country has different laws, so be sure to familiarise yourself with the laws that apply in your region before using the trailer with any kind of motorised vehicle).

Trailer or child seat?

Many of you wonder if it is safer to carry their children in a bicycle trailer or in a child seat. We would like to answer this question for you in today’s GOOD TO KNOW!
The patented Croozer safety passenger cell in combination with the 5-point harness system builds a protective space for your child. If choose a child seat, your kid is at best protected by a helmet.
The Croozer’s wide wheelbase and low centre of gravity guarantee exceptional stability and impressive road-holding properties. Even if your bike may fall, your Croozer stays safe on the gound, thanks to its rotatable hitch connector. If your bike falls with your kid sitting in the child seat, your child will fall with you. In relation to the height of your child, the fall is quite high!
Another plus: If the April weather is fooling around again, your child finds a dry and protected place in the Croozer. Thanks to the sensor light, the trailer is always visible to other road users, even in bad weather conditions. However, in the child seat, your kid are getting as wet as you ;)

Avoiding mould and mildew

Are your kids little cookie / ice cream monsters ;) ? 🍫🍦🍩 You use your Croozer in all weather conditions? 🌦️ To avoid the growth of mould and mildew from the beginning, we recommend you to follow our check list:
✅ If you plan to cover your Croozer with the Storage Cover or store it for a longer time, it should be dry and clean. It is always a good idea to place a dehumidifier bag inside the trailer!
✅ Basically, the fabrics of your Croozer are not an applicable medium for the growth of mould and mildew. Only if it gets filthy (food residues, dirt etc.), the combination with moist warm air can be a reason for mould and mildew.
✅ However, if you do happen to find a small amount of mould or mildew on your Croozer, it can be cleaned using a mild alcohol-based cleaning agent, 5% household vinegar or a 5% sodium bicarbonate solution from the pharmacy. For severe cases of mould or mildew, the fabric body must be replaced. Contact your Croozer dealer.

Hitch arm on the left side

The hitch arm of your Croozer is mounted on the left side of your bike trailer (in travelling direction). The hitch on your bike is also supposed to be installed on the left side. The stroller wheel needs to be removed when riding with the trailer. You can store it in the little bag of the trailer’s storage compartment.

Rain protection

⛈️🌪️ Regardless of the weather conditions – with your Croozer, you can always enjoy being outdoors 🌈🌨️ In order to be prepared for even the craziest weather, we recommend you the Croozer Rain Cover ☔ It protects the passenger compartment from getting wet. The Rain Cover is available as an accessory for all Croozer Kid and Kid Plus models. Please consider the differences for the respective model years. If you love cycling through every puddle on the street, additional mud flaps for the mudguard of the rear wheel of your bicycle can be very helpful. They are available at your local bike shop. No matter how crazy the weather might be: Have a fantastic & safe trip 🚲💚
