A safe and uniform reduction in speed without noticeable pull on the bicycle. The brakes can be purchased along with your trailer, or they can be added later, with a small amount of out-of-the-box labor. Ride with confidence when pulling heavier loads, moving at higher speeds, or during emergency stops. Learn more below.



THE BRAKING WHEELS AUTOMATICALLY SLOW DOWN THE BIKE TRAILER WITHOUT RELYING ON THE BICYCLE'S BRAKES.

The Sturmey Archer drum brakes are activated by a unique actuator built into the tow bar. As the trailer leans into the bike, the actuator slows the trailer.

AUTOMATIC TRAILER BRAKES INCLUDE:

  • Actuator that is attached to the wishbone tow bar.
  • Strumey Archer bolt on hubs are custom built into 26″ or 700c wheels (not quick release wheels).
  • Standard tires, tubes, and rim strips.
  • Cables that are attached to the actuator. Connect cables to the wheels' hubs  by following directions.

Ships assembled except for attaching the wheels to trailer.
