CycleTote Adaptive Trailer
This item is currently not available.


For a child or young teen with special needs up to 5 feet 5 inches tall and 175 lbs.

This is the trailer for your loved one with special needs. Exceptional comfort and safety for the passenger combined with low rolling resistance for the bicyclist result in magic for both. Seat-post attachment and ball hitch combine for natural bike handling and additional safety. This trailer is used by My Team Triumph for bike and running (stroller option) races. Passengers report feelings of flying and new found freedom.

Use either our foam padded sling seat with a sturdy 5-point harness or your Panda, Snug, and Tumble Form seat. Note that the seat can be moved to adjust for leg room and tilt. The top of the front roll bar on all special needs trailers is quickly removable for assisting your passenger into the trailer.

Like all of our trailers, it comes with the correct hitch size for your bike, your choice of 700 c (road) or 26”(mountain bike) wheels, a safety flag, a rear reflector and wheel reflectors. It is covered with water resistant CORDURA® fabric. 800.747.2407

CycleTote Automatic Braking SystemThe automatic braking system features Sturmey Archer alloy drum brake hubs, which are actuated by a mechanism built into the tow bar of the trailer. When the bicycle brakes are applied, the inertia of the trailer pushes toward the bicycle. This energy moves a rod in the actuator, which then pulls the brake cables and slows the trailer. The braking system delivers a safe and uniform reduction in speed without noticeable pull on the bicycle.

This can be an important safety feature with heavier loads, higher speeds, or during emergency stops. Wheels used with automatic braking systems are hand built by Cycletote using DT stainless spokes. These brake hubs use a special solid axle but can be retrofitted with an Axle Quick Release option. $499

Cycle Tote Automatic Braking System with Axel Release ClassicAll of the benefits of the automatic braking system, plus the ability to convert the solid axle wheels of the Sturmey Archer Hub into quick release wheels using the Axle Quick Release option.

The automatic braking system provides a uniform reduction in speed and safer stops. This can be especially important with heavy loads, at higher speeds or for emergency stopping. Installation not included.

The Axle Quick Release option is not available with the Landscape trailer.
