Burley have updated their affordable Minnow single-child kids bike trailer, renaming it the Burley Bee. Aside from the name, little has changed save for the price (+$10) and color. However, for those with a larger family, a two-child version is now available for $299.99. In other news, the popular D’Lite X that doubles as a stroller is now available as a single-child bike trailer too.
Burley Bee Kids Bike Trailer
The Burley Bee is their most affordable kids bike trailer by a good $100 margin. It is a bike-only trailer, unlike the more expensive Honey Bee, D’Lite X, Encore X and Cub that also double up as strollers. Burley have introduced the Bee as both a single-child and two-child kids bike trailer, with just a $20 price difference between the two.
The Bee runs 20″ wheels that feature a push button release for quick removal. A 16″ plus sized wheel kit is a $149.99 upgrade if you plan to take the bike trailer off-roading or even over snowy ground.
An adjustable five-point harness system secures your child in the cockpit, which is itself encapsulated by a full internal aluminum roll cage for protection in an accident. UPF 50+ tinted windows and a 600D polyester wind and water-resistant cover shield the occupant from the elements. The front cover and rear windows can open up to maximize ventilation. The Bee also comes with a safety flag for visibility.
The Burley Bee has ample storage space with interior pockets in both the cargo and child seating area. When you’re off the bike, a handy flex connector allows bike to lay flat while the trailer remains upright.
Burley D’Lite X Single
The Burley D’Lite X is a far more premium kids bike trailer as compared to the Bee, and its $749.99 price tag certainly reflects that. Padded seats, headrests, adjustable suspension and reclining seats make for what should be a very comfortable ride for your child when you venture off the sidewalk onto rougher terrain.
The Burley D’Lite X is now available in a single occupancy version in addition to the standard double.
