Burley Design, known for its award-winning outdoor recreational transport gear trusted by generations of families since 1978 – takes home the 2018 Eurobike Award for their revolutionary, single-wheel trailer, the Coho XC™. This new single-wheel trailer is the ultimate companion to endure every gear-hauling adventure on the road, the gravel and in the dirt; single-track bikepacking to long-distance touring.
This year marked the 14 edition of the Eurobike Award to acknowledge the most innovative and decisive products to drive the cycling market into the future. In a demanding two-stage process, a six-strong panel of judges – with a holistic wealth of cycling knowledge ranging from bike-testing experts to endurance athletes – visually assessed the Coho XC against 365 other applicants. After the initial digital submission phase, judges tested the Coho XC’s acclaimed compatibility and maneuverability, ultimately declaring this modern single-wheel trailer as a trendsetter in the cycling industry, stating that the Coho XC “sets a new standard in the evolution of trailers.”
“We are thrilled to have the Coho XC recognized with a Eurobike Award. This year marks Burley’s 40th Anniversary, and we can’t think of better ways to celebrate this occasion than to receive a Eurobike Award and to launch our Coho XC trailer this summer,” says Allison Coughlin, President of Burley Design. “Our mission is to enable adventure, and we believe we’ve made a trailer that does just that: enable adventure. The Coho XC is innovative, thoughtfully designed and adaptable to any adventure, in a category that hasn’t seen change in a long time. We are excited to see the different ways in which people use this versatile trailer.”
The Coho XC revolutionizes the single-wheel trailer market using Burley’s patented Burley Ballz™ axle-compatibility system. Featuring this dual-ball hitch, cyclists can easily and tool-free attach the trailer’s yoke to a vast range of axle and hub widths on the market. In addition, the Coho XC promises consumer-friendly usability distinguished by its one-handed release handle, height adjustable kickstand, and level frame and fender for securing long and oversized objects to the trailer. And that is only to name a few, as the Coho XC additionally features a coil spring suspension and integrated accessory mounts for customization that meets each cyclist’s needs.
