Design, Testing, & Service

Here at Burley, we hold ourselves to a higher standard. We call it The Burley Standard, and it’s the foundation of everything we make and do.


The Burley Standard is more than a set of guidelines or regulations; it’s how we put our company values into practice.


We design products that help people do more by bike.

From big-picture features like durability and safety, to thoughtful details like comfort and easy assembly, every Burley is built to empower people to get out there. Burley’s designers and engineers approach every project with one goal in mind—to support the ride.

We’re also going the distance to build products that are safer for people and the planet. We select nontoxic materials and conserve resources by designing our products to be versatile, durable, and repairable. When it comes to taking care of our community of riders and the world at large, we’re in it for the long haul.


In 1995, we literally wrote the book on child trailer testing standards.

But we didn’t stop there. We continue to build our Kid, Pet, and Cargo products to meet or exceed current safety and durability standards. Our rigorous testing means you can trust our products to carry your most precious cargo.


Because it leads to a safer, more durable product, Burley extends child trailer material and performance test requirements to cargo and pet. We feel all our products should be designed to the highest possible level of durability and safety.

While other kid bike trailer manufacturers strive to achieve
the American Society for Testing and Materials standard, for us it's a minimum. In fact, we exceed the requirements on the key durability
tests, the drum and push-pull by 2.5 and 5 times respectively.

We have coordinated with a third-party test lab to create a comprehensive restricted substance list. All Burley products are tested by a third-party lab to ensure that they are chemically safe.


When you buy a Burley product, we come along for the ride.

We support your journey with easy-to-access resources, like training videos, spare parts, an online archive of product manuals, and more. Whether you have a question about an order, need help finding a replacement part, or just want to talk bikes, our friendly and knowledgeable Customer Support Team is available to chat.

From everyday errands to extraordinary expeditions, Burley has helped folks do more by bike since 1978
