One of the most popular Chariot carriers, the Corsaire has an adjustable suspension, more leg room, and brackets for holding kit accessories. A kit for strolling, biking, jogging, hiking or cross-country skiing is required to complete the carrier.
The Corsaire is the largest and tallest of Chariot's child carriers, so you can use it for children up to age 6. This bike trailer has an adjustable suspension to ensure a smooth ride for your child. The Chariot Corsaire is designed with a push-button axle, so the wheels are easily removed for storage or transport.
Want to enjoy sports with your toddler? You can outfit the cockpit for strolling, biking, jogging, hiking or cross-country skiing with conversion kits that are sold separately. This child transport system keeps your garage or storage space from becoming a crowded stroller warehouse for a collection of expensive child carriers that are each designed for only one sport. The Chariot system is ideal for active parents on the go.
The bike trailer hitch arm is inserted into the VersaWing bracket on your child carrier. It snaps into the bracket in seconds. This hitch arm is then connected to your bike using the ezHitch system. A longer, quick-release wheel skewer then replaces your rear wheel's quick-release skewer so that you can attach a hitch cup to your bike's rear axle. Once you have installed the skewer and hitch cup, they can be left on your bike for use with or without the carrier. If you have a solid bike axle, simply remove the existing axle nut and then install the hitch cup. Reinstall the nut to secure the hitch on your bike and you're ready to ride.
After the hitch cup is mounted on your bike, the ball at the end of the hitch arm slides inside the hitch cup and is secured to it with a locking pin and safety strap. The ball-and-socket design of this bike hitch makes a more flexible connection between your bike and the carrier than other bicycle hitches. This means that as your bike leans into corners, the carrier stays more upright because the bike and the trailer act independently, preventing twisting of the hitch bar. Using this hitch system stabilizes your bicycle trailer and helps to prevent the trailer from pulling or pushing on your bike as you turn, so you have a smoother ride.
The anodized aluminum frame of the carrier forms a roll cage around your precious cargo and helps to keep little hands and feet inside at all times. Anodizing adds a strong surface coating that prevents rust while retaining the lightweight quality of the aluminum. The 3M reflective trim makes your carrier visible in low light so that drivers, pedestrians and bike riders can see you coming.
The durable, polyurethane-coated polyester fabric is free of harmful chemicals, and the UV-protected side windows are made of phthalate-free polyurethane, which complies with the European Oeko-Tex Standard 100 for safe textiles. This carrier is designed with your child's safety in mind.
For added peace of mind, Chariot has a backup connection for each end of the hitch arm. A safety strap provides a second connection between the hitch arm and your bike. This strap wraps around your bicycle's chain guard and clips onto the D-ring on the hitch arm. Another safety strap with a pin inserts into the VersaWing to form a second connection between the other end of the hitch arm and the carrier. Your child is doubly safe with this well-designed hitch system. If you use the carrier with a jogging or strolling kit (sold separately), the wrist safety strap extends between you and the carrier so it won't accidentally roll away from you.
A Chariot bike trailer keeps your child comfortable as you travel. The plush seat cushion and padded, 5-point restraint harness keep life cushy and safe for your precious cargo, and the large, tinted side windows let you check on your child as she enjoys the view.
The carrier's suspension provides a smooth ride. Powder coated leaf springs are mounted on the outside of the carrier just above the rear wheels. The suspension's comfort level and shock absorption can be adjusted according to the weight of each passenger, providing a consistently comfortable ride as your child grows. When you're carrying two children, you can adjust each side of the suspension system to match the weight of each child, thereby customizing the suspension so that both children ride comfortably. The powder coated suspension adjuster sits above the rear wheels on the outside of the chassis. You can modify the suspension by loosening the knob on the clamp around the leaf springs and then moving the clamp to the appropriate weight setting for your passenger and cargo. Once you have customized the suspension, tighten the knob and you are ready to go.
A recessed upper shelf in the seatback provides space for a child's bike helmet to rest, so the helmet isn't pushed down on his forehead and eyes as you travel. A mesh upper seatback provides ventilation for warm days, and mesh side vents inside the cockpit can be opened or closed, as needed, in warm or cool weather. You can use the included cover with the screen alone to keep out bugs and debris or with the rain cover to shield your baby from wet or windy weather. The cover also zips closed for added protection. An attached sun shade helps to keep your child out of direct sunlight and can be rolled up and out of the way when it isn't needed.
Parents will also appreciate the handy features that make the carrier easy to use. The large rear cargo compartment is perfect for storage, and it has a mesh pocket for organizing smaller stuff like your wallet and keys. The harness straps and seat cushion can be removed and hand washed when necessary.
Each of the 20" spoked aluminum wheels can be removed with the simple push of a button, which makes folding up the carrier a piece of cake. The body of the carrier folds flat for compact storage. You and your toddler can enjoy a healthy, active lifestyle with this versatile child carrier.
Lots of helpful accessories (sold separately) are also available for your Chariot Corsaire. A heavy-duty rain cover is available to help protect your child and carrier in strong downpours, also a wheeled travel bag can be purchased to make it easy to take your Chariot on a trip.
