The Cheetah bike trailer is for families with an active lifestyle. The lightest of the Chariot line, the easy-to-handle child transport folds flat for storage. Other kits outfit the carrier for jogging, strolling, hiking or cross-country skiing.
The Cheetah bike trailer is the leanest, lightest and most compact of Chariot's Sport Series line, making it easy to carry with you. If you are short on room, the narrower, streamlined design also makes this double carrier more compact than other Chariot carriers, so a Cheetah fits better in tight storage spaces. This is Chariot's most portable child carrier at their lowest price.
You can also convert your carrier for jogging, strolling, hiking or cross-country skiing using other conversion kits (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 multipurpose child carrier is specifically designed for use in several sports - it has a low center of gravity for stability and a stylish, raked-back design that leaves lots of room behind the carrier for a runner's kick stride. The Chariot system is ideal for active parents on the go.
The bike hitch and safety equipment allow you to quickly and easily hook up the child carrier to your bicycle for a trip. The bike hitch arm is inserted into a 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 in this kit 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.
This carrier is designed with your children's safety in mind. 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 increases visibility in low-light conditions so that drivers, pedestrians, and bike riders can see you coming.
To assure your peace of mind, Chariot has a backup connection for each end of the hitch arm. A safety strap provides a second attachment between the hitch arm and your bike. This strap wraps around your bicycle's chain guard and clips onto a D-ring on the hitch arm. A second safety strap with a pin inserts into the VersaWing to form another connection between the other end of the hitch arm and the bike trailer. Your children are doubly safe with this well-designed hitch system.
An extra-tall safety flag slides into the sleeve on the rear side of your carrier, and the included reflectors mount on your wheels and rear cargo bag, enhancing your bike's visibility as you ride. Show your babies how to enjoy a healthy, active lifestyle with this easy-to-use bike trailer kit. 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.
A Chariot carrier keeps your babies 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 children as they enjoy the view. A mesh upper seatback provides ventilation for warm days. Unlike other child carriers that have a straight back, the Chariot's recessed shelf means that your children's safety helmets won't be pushed down over their foreheads and eyes as you travel (great when using the bicycle trailer kit - sold separately). You can use the included cover with the screen alone to keep out bugs and debris or with the rain cover to shield your babies from wet or windy weather. Unlike a typical plastic rain cover, this soft, flexible cover rolls up quietly so you won't wake sleeping babies. An attached sun shade helps to keep your babies 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 VersaWing brackets on each side of the carrier make it lightning fast to add and remove kit attachments with the push of a button.
For your convenience, the HeightRight handlebar can be flipped over to offer two comfortable grip positions when you are using a stroller or jogging conversion kit (sold separately). And the parking brake can be engaged and disengaged with your foot - there's no need for you to bend over to lock or unlock the stroller wheels. The harness straps and seat cushion can be removed and hand washed when necessary. A mesh storage pocket on the back of the carrier is oversized for extra storage capacity.
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 or for transport to your destination. You and your babies can enjoy a healthy, active lifestyle with this versatile child carrier.
Lots of helpful accessories (sold separately) are also available for your bicycle trailer. Add a storage bag or cargo rack for carrying extra gear, or put fenders on your Chariot to help keep your carrier cleaner as you bike. An additional ezHitch attachment can be purchased for installation on a second bike, so two people can switch off pulling the bike trailer. A heavy-duty rain cover is also available to help protect your child and carrier in strong downpours, and a wheeled travel bag can be purchased to make it easy to take your Chariot on a trip.
