For parents, nothing is more important than their children’s safety. The special design of our child trailers guarantees safety for your young passengers in the “back seat” – but how can you, as the user, maximise this safety? In this blog post, we give you several important tips!
“Safety first” has always been a top priority in the development of our bicycle trailers. This is why all Croozer Kid models have a passenger compartment that protects young passengers like a cocoon. It is equipped with a full internal roll cage (steel at the bottom and aluminium at the top) that completely surrounds the child(ren), providing protection from all sides. In addition, bicycle trailers have a low centre of gravity, which helps keep both wheels safely on the road, e.g. if you are on a bumpy path or happen to hit a kerb with one wheel while riding at a somewhat high speed.
To ensure that all Croozer products are safe and reliable, we subject them to rigorous routine testing against the relevant criteria – in this context, Croozer not only satisfies all legal requirements and standards, but also sets its own voluntary standards that go above and beyond basic compliance. You can learn more in our overview of safety testing.
Our child trailers are designed to ensure excellent safety on the road. However, to further improve the safety of your young passengers and increase the visibility of your bicycle while pulling the trailer in traffic, be sure to observe the following safety precautions:
Many customers ask us if passengers in the trailer get enough fresh air when the cover is closed. Our response is: yes, of course! The passenger compartment is not air-tight. Plenty of fresh air penetrates through the fabric body and various openings, e.g. around the rear cargo compartment. Nevertheless, if you plan to take longer trips with the cover closed, we recommend using our Air Ventilation Insert.
P.S. You may be wondering why we often seem to ignore our own tips and rules in our photos and videos – this is because it would otherwise be impossible to see the passengers and the inside of the bicycle trailer. In real life, Croozians always follow the road-safety precautions!
We are often asked whether children have to wear a helmet in the Croozer bicycle trailer – as safety is always the top priority. You can find an answer to this question here! Read more
