Seymour, Conn., September 1, 2016 – Developing child trailers since 1991, Thule is now introducing the next generation of multisport trailers. Taking feedback from customers and consumers, Thule has developed a line of trailers that takes parent and child comfort to the next level. Introducing the Thule Chariot Cross, the all-around multisport trailer, offering comfort and flexibility for families with an active lifestyle, and the Thule Chariot Lite, a lightweight multisport trailer, designed for everyday activities. Both models feature intuitive design and convenient features, and allow parents to bring their kids with them for every activity, all year round: cycling, walking, jogging and cross-country skiing. Stay Active with Kids – 4 activities, 4 seasons, 1 carrier.

Safety:

Like all Thule products, safety and security are the most important features, and the new line of Thule multisport trailers is no different. A padded five-point harness and external roll cage protect the child and carrier from damage in the unlikely event of an accident or roll over. And for protection from the elements, a ventilated mesh cover shelters your child from bugs and small rocks, while the convenient weather cover protects the child from rain, snow and wind. On bright sunny days, the adjustable sunshade protects your child from the sun and harmful UV rays.

Quality:

By ensuring a sustainable supply chain of raw materials, the Thule Chariot’s main fabric in the carriers follow the Bluesign® and OEKO-TEX® standards. The new line of multisport trailers are even easy to service and maintain, with parts that can be replaced, to make sure that your Thule Chariot will truly last a lifetime.

Perfect Fit:

With the child’s comfort in mind, padded harnesses and seat cushions are perfect for on-the-go naps. And to keep them napping, the Thule Chariot Cross trailers feature reclining seats. With an adjustable handlebar designed to suit different heights for added comfort and a more compact size when folded up, the new line of carriers make it easier to stay active with your kids.

Ease of Use:

From the fully adjustable handlebars, to removable wheels and improved folding mechanism, blue touch points make adjustment simple and convenient. When unfolding the carrier for use, an audible click is now paired with a visible red indicator that toggles to green when opened completely and safe to use. A more compact size when folded up for storage and travel now features an automatic fold lock for easy transport. Quickly and easily change activities with the innovative VersaWing when switching between jogging, cycling, strolling and cross-country skiing attachments. And the Click ‘n Store cradle allows for easy storage of the strolling wheels when using the cycling attachment, both included.
