Did you know the original Burley Travoy is what allowed me to go car-free a decade ago in North Carolina? I love the Travoy and the only reason I don't use one now is that I have a cargo bike I ride everywhere. I'm excited about the updates Burley has made to this trailer and run through unboxing it and my initial thoughts in the video above.
Watch the above video for my full rundown on the updated Burley Travoy for 2020! If video isn't your thing, my notes are below.
Burley Travoy Bike Cargo Trailer Details
Colors: Black or Cool Grey (light blue)
Weight Limit (lbs): 60
Weight: 10.65 lbs
Wheel size: 12"
The Travoy’s compact design effortlessly stores away and is ready for deployment on your everyday commute or the occasional neighborhood bike share ride. The Quick Hitch, extendable tow arm and other features maximize the trailer’s utility and functionality. The Travoy is the perfect tool for nimbly hauling the day’s groceries, luggage, or gear by bike for any urban adventure.
- Quick Hitch allows for tool-free installation and easy transition from bike to bike
- Integrated wheel guards protect and corral cargo
- Extendable tow arm provides additional clearance for racks and larger tires
- Wide kickstand provides a stable platform when freestanding
- Tow arm grip padding for off-bike utility as a hand cart
- Compact fold breaks down to briefcase size in seconds with twist handles
What is Updated for 2020 on the Burley Travoy that Matters to Me?
- A new MUCH easier quick hitch
- Extending arm
- Better kickstand (MUCH appreciated)
- Wheel guards
- The material is different and it seems to have more "sag" for you to tighten into the trailer instead of your cargo being strapped to the frame.
Who is the Burley Travoy for?
- A more compact option than the Burley kids' or Coho trailers
- Easy to take with you by rolling it around with the tow arm (watch the video) meaning you can take this into the grocery store
- Someone that uses bike share and wants to transport more than a backpack
- Anyone that wants more cargo capacity without the need of buying a cargo bike
