Additional Information



Encore® is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality bike trailer with a couple caveats Burley trailers are great. Everyone knows it. We also know they are expensive! And for the money I would expect pretty much flawless operation. However, there were two things that kept me from giving this trailer five stars. 1) tire would not hold air right out of the box. Minor annoyance. Got it fixed. 3) trailer drifts to the right when used as jogging stroller. Tryed adjusting air pressure. Didn't work. Minor annoyance. The thing is still pretty smooth. 2) handle bar slips when pressing down to turn. This is a pretty big fail! I have stared at the thing trying to figure out how to tighten it, and looked online for a solution, and so far found nothing. Major bummer!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Trailer, wondering on quality Bought this trailer and have used it a ton! We use it behind bikes and also with the stroller kit. Has been great to also use in winter as it keeps the kids warmer with the plastic shield pulled down. Unfortunately, the top seat hanger has started to fall apart within the last year (hopefully Burley covers this as I have submitted a claim) and one of the rubber wheel dust covers has fallen off. We like the stroller, just hope Burley stands behind their product on these few issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from After much researching, we decided to buy the Burley Encore based on capacity, versatility, and ratings from others. We are not disappointed!! We started putting our daughter in this when she was about 7 months using the infant snuggler insert. We take our now 16-month-old daughter on walks, runs, and bike rides (using the attachment) several times weekly, weather permitting. The Burley has survived three seasons of tough use on a crushed limestone trail. The protective screens allow our daughter to enjoy the outside without the bugs and trail debris. It also allows us to strap on music, carry some water bottles, and walk/run/bike hands free. I would recommend this to anyone! Easy to construct/destruct, transport, convert, and steer. 10/10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love our Burley Encore...we only use it as a pull behind bike carrier for the little guy as we have a smaller stroller for everything else. With that said it functions perfectly on rides - easy to pull and we have never had an issue with any of the mechanical parts...best thing is that its smooth enough to put our little guy right to sleep and stay asleep for the duration of our usual 1-2 hr. rides. We have taken the trailer on paved trails / hard packed trails / and the occasional sand / bark transitions...never really had an issue with the design. My only issue is that when sliding the handle into the side mount it will sometimes not slide all the way in and allow the pin to easily be inserted but honestly that's more of a user problem most of the time. Other than that one little thing it functions flawlessly. Even like the splash shield for those wet rides / gutter crossings. I often ride alone with the 3 kids and its nice to not have to worry about 1 of them...the other 2 - well that's a different story...;)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We love our Burley and it's versatility! We have the 2012 version of the Encore. Our kids love it and seem to think the ride is very comfortable. We use it as both a bike trailer and with the jogging stroller attachment. It folds down fairly compact. I wish 2 things were different. #1 the cover is not tight when closed. Even if you put the Velcro to the tightest location possible it still flaps. #2 I wish the sun shade was larger and more versatile. As is, it's really quite useless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My wife and I love it. I don't even realize its attached to the bike. Attaching it to the bike is quick. My kids enjoy the ride and are very comfortable. It has lots of storage. Took it with us to Block Island for a day trip. It was easy to get on the ferry and maneuver around the tight roads. Had enough cargo area to hold all the toys and food we needed. The transition from trailer to stroller is quick and easy. We are very happy with our purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome trailer, great quality, fun features I love my Encore! I use this primarily for triathlon training so I don't have to find a sitter. My 5 year old and 2 year old fit comfortably. There's room for toys, snacks, and a blanket on chilly days. There's also a lot of space in the back for picnic blankets, lunchboxes, etc. for days in the park. It seems to have good ventilation and not get overly hot as long as the front cover is rolled back on the warmest days. My kids love riding in it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was one of the best purchases we've made for our family. My daughter, now a very tall 2.5 year old, loves it. She gets so excited when she finds out that we are going for a ride. The trailer fits her and lots of "stuff" - like pool towels, soccer balls, groceries, etc. It pulls really easily and, overall, feels very sturdy. We use it both on dedicated paved bike trailers and on city streets. I'd buy it again.

Does the Encore come with the S.I.T seat? Can it be fitted with one? What is the suggested age for a child to sit in the Encore?

Asked by: kelsdb
The Encore does not come with the SIT seats, but they are compatible as an add on accessory. Burley suggests waiting until the age of 1-year before being towed behind a bicycle. At the age of 6-months the trailer can be used in stroller mode.
