A bicycle trailer to always have with you


Trenux – a trailer that you can always have with you wherever you go, without restricting the flexibility of the bike.

An innovative folding mechanism allows luggage racks and trailers to be combined in one product. In contrast to bulky load bikes and space-restricted bicycle bags, Trenux offers the right transport option in every situation: whether it’s a big week’s shopping, looking for a parking space at a bicycle stand or a barbecue evening by the lake. The luggage carrier folds open to become a load trailer in a matter of seconds. The trailer is immediately ready for use and can be stowed away as a luggage carrier in no time at all after transport.

Trenux – a trailer that you can always have with you wherever you go, without restricting the flexibility of the bike.

In contrast to bulky load bikes and space-restricted bicycle bags, Trenux offers the right transport option in every situation: whether it’s a big week’s shopping, looking for a parking space at a bicycle stand or a barbecue evening by the lake. The luggage carrier folds open to become a load trailer in a matter of seconds. The trailer is immediately ready for use and can be stowed away as a luggage carrier in no time at all after transport.

The drawbar can be mounted and removed in seconds using the quick release mechanism. But to keep it your Trenux, you can lock it keyless by simply pressing two locks.

Safty: Camlock quality locks
Close: without key

Folded out, the load trailer offers space for two beverage crates, one suitcase or four flower crates. The load is held stable by the trapezoidal frame and the straps. Additional tension straps fix light loads.
Empty weight: 6 kg
Charging: 40 kg
Loading area: 62 x 42 cm
Standard: Eurokiste
Picture not loaded

To unfold, pull on the handle to unlock the flap lock. Two snap-in magnets give the trailer increased stability and prevent it from wobbling. When the Trenux is no longer needed, the central handle in the middle of the loading area is pulled and the trailer folds down.

Fold out: 4 seconds
Fold in: 8 seconds

A pocket completely integrated into the folding mechanism forms the rectangular loading area. Two beverage crates can easily be stowed here. Due to the water-repellent material, the bag can be pulled out upwards when it rains and the transported goods remain dry inside. In the supermarket, the bag can be removed from the trailer and used directly for shopping. In addition to the colour combinations, reflectors round off the design.

Dimensions: 60 x 40 x 30 cm
load capacity: 40 kg
Image not loaded

Trenux can be used as an independent luggage carrier or in combination with an existing one. So it really fits on every bike.
As with a conventional luggage rack, Trenux fixes itself at three points left/right of the armpit and the seat post.

Baggage carrier width: 30 cm
Trailer width: 50 cm

According to the StVO, the trailer is equipped with reflectors, additional ones are also on the bag. Tension straps can be attached to a suspension to secure the load. In the event of a fall, the trailer remains stationary due to the special coupling joint, represents no danger and is properly constructed in accordance with DIN EN 15918.

StVO: compliant
DIN EN 15918: fulfilled

The drawbar of the Trenux is mounted on the axis of the rear wheel. The standard mount is compatible with a full axle, quick-releases or 12 mm thru axle. This allows us to cover the majority of bicycles. In addition, a mounting on the seat tube is required to be able to fold in Trenux.

Compatibility: Full axle, quick-release, thru axle
Alternative: Connection to tube frame

In the event that the trailer is used without a bicycle, there is a trolley extension. This is additionally mountable and can be folded out easily and quickly.

The team and its story


In 2016 we went on a bicycle trip to the Baltic sea with a traditional cycle trailer. After the first 100 km the wheel suspension of the trailer suddenly broke. We tried to mount the broken trailer on top of our cargo rack. After some more kilometre we tried to fold it. We were successful but it was only possible to fold it once.

Back at home in Magdeburg a new trailer was necessary. That was the right time to use our knowledge from the mechatronic studies and build something that should revolutionize urban mobility. That was the start of Trenux. Two years later we build already several prototypes and finished our studies at the University.

Today we are working 24/7 to prepare everything for the launch of Trenux.
We look forward to receiving your feedback and start our crowdfunding campaign in spring 2019.

FAQ


Is it possible to transport kids with Trenux?
For the safety of children it is necessary to have a foldable roll cage.
As soon Trenux has confirmed its use for cargo transportation we will launch the version for kids.

Which certifications Trenux needs to fulfill?
There is no technical inspection agency for bicycle trailers.
But there is a DIN norm for safety requirements and test methods of cycle trailers (DIN EN 15918)
Trenux meets this standard.

What is the price of one Trenux?
We want to offer a product with the quality “Made in Germany”. Therefore we are currently in negotiations with local producers which will result in our final price.

Does Trenux fit on every bike?
We have not found a bike yet which could not support Trenux.
In case of bikes with a bigger gap between the rear wheel and the seatpost Trenux tends towards the seatpost.
This isn’t a technical problem. For better style a longer attachment is used to compensate the length.
If you are unsure whether Trenux will fit onto your bike please contact us.
