They'll be begging to go on a ride.
Dragging the kids around in a clunky, uncomfortable bike trailer isn't going to win you future cycling fans, and when the little ones aren't happy, no one is. The founder of Weehoo wanted to hear fewer complaints and more of the gleeful expression the company is named after when he took his kids on bike rides, and a few years later, options like the iGo Turbo Bicycle Trailer for Kids offer easy setup for parents and plenty of features to keep kids excited about heading out on a ride.
The Turbo was redesigned this year with a few improvements to make it easier to use and more adaptable to different bike frames. To start, Weehoo reworked the detachable push bar to release more efficiently using snap pins rather than the former quick-release system. The bar also now features a more prominent arched shape to make it easier to attach to 29ers or bikes with luggage racks. To keep kids cozy during long rides on the roads or through the woods, the seat back and base of the seat itself have been changed slightly, too — perhaps after receiving feedback from little ones themselves.
Besides a few updates made in the name of progress, the innovative design of the Turbo remains essentially the same. Stable enough to stay balanced along winding singletrack or on the road, the trailer allows kids to pedal along with you to get exercise and create a feeling of being more actively involved in the ride. And with a tool-free, adjustable seat, it can grow with your family to accommodate young riders from ages 2-9 weighing up to 80lbs.
The creator of Weehoo developed the trailers for his own children, so safety is a key attribute of all of the company's products. In the Turbo, kids stay comfortably buckled-in with an adjustable three-point harness, and little feet are secured in pedals with adjustable foot straps. The Turbo includes an enclosed chain and sprocket to keep curious hands protected, and it helps to prevent hunger-driven meltdowns by providing space to store plenty of snacks in both the seat and in the wheel panniers.
