Interbike 2017 – Burley

Burley Coho XC

Burley was introducing the new Coho XC single wheel cargo trailer, which includes features such as variable width yoke system to adjust to a wide range of axles and hubs, instant release lever, integrated kickstand, different rear wheels sizes, suspension, removable side panels and a slew of accessory mounts. The kickstand would come in extremely handy since anyone that has used a single wheeled trailer knows everything falls over if you don’t have a way to prop things up and attaching and detaching it from the bike is problematic by yourself. The kickstand would offer a stable platform for any activity.

Built to address one of the most common problems with traditional trailers; the inability to adjust the yoke to a wide range of axles and hubs (125-197 mm spacing); the Coho XC introduces a variable width yoke system. This industry-leading feature allows installation on a wider range of hubs and tire sizes, including 700C with full wrap renders, 29 plus wheels, off-road tires and road tires.

Users simply spread the yoke to the width of their rear axle, and then drop and lock the trailer to the bike with the new dual ball hitch that allows the yoke to connect at multiple angles. I think the only current issue with the system is the lack of compatibility with a 12mm rear axle which exist on many newer bikes, but Burley said they have something in the works.

It follows in the footsteps of the standard Coho but has the added benefit of a coil sprung rear shock to help soften the blows of the trail. It also is compatible with three different wheels sizes, a Road oriented 16”x1.75”, an Off-road 16”x2.125”, and a fat Plus 16 x3”.

The main area of the trailer is large and one of their dry bags would keep everything dry and clean inside the enclosure. They have lots of other accessories such as rear fender pannier rack and bags, side and top ladders to attach additional gear for a very functional carrying system. I think the Coho XC would be ideal for trail maintenance work, where you’re carrying lots of heavy and awkward gear.

The ladders decouple with a functional cotter pin system for easy on and off the parts.
