Automatic Brake System (Bolt On Hub)
The automatic braking system delivers 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. The brakes are an important safety feature when pulling heavier loads, moving at higher speeds, or during emergency stops.
Sturmey Archer alloy drum brake hubs are activated by a unique actuator built into the tow bar. As the bike brakes, or when going down hill, the trailer pushes toward the bicycle. A rod is moved in the actuator, which then pulls the brake cables and slows the trailer.
