For us, safety isn’t an afterthought, it’s our first thought. Unlike many other child trailers on the market today, ours are tested in-house during the earliest design phases to ensure that safety and reliability are built in from the beginning. We’ve developed testing protocols that are the toughest out there. We think your children are worth it.
Every Burley child trailer also receives third party testing to ensure the safe travel of your most precious cargo. All Burley child trailers meet or exceed the ASTM F1975-09 standard for bicycle child trailers. In fact, Burley was one of the first to advocate for these minimum safety standards for our industry. Today, we work continuously to improve and exceed them.
Our products also receive external testing, and all child trailers meet or exceed the ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) standards. ASTM standards address such safety criteria as structural integrity, rollover resistance, visibility, restraint system strength, and much more. Burley was one of the first to advocate for these minimum safety standards for our industry, and today we work continuously to improve and exceed them.
Simulates going over a bump 25,000 times to ensure durability of wheels, frame and hitch assembly.
Simulates a stop and go motion for more than 500,000 cycles to make sure the hitch and frame will last.
Simulates force applied to trailer in a rollover to ensure strength and integrity of frame.
Fully loaded trailer is raised several feet off the ground and dropped on its nose to test the restraint system under extreme stress.
Ensures a low center of gravity to withstand hard cornering or hitting large obstacles with one wheel.
Front forks are tested to withstand curb impact.
