  • THE BEST TRAILER JUST GOT BETTER

    THE NEW Y

    How do you make a good product better? The new revamped Y trailer, with hitch, load bed, clamping and interface improvements.

THE NEW Y

So what's so new?

How do you make a great product better? The Y was our first trailer, it’s been inspiration for many that came after it. It has always been one step ahead. We listened to all your suggestions, read the comments on the blog and decided what to do. We’ve added more value, better features and a more modern look, because we want the Y to take you to a new level of alternative transportation.

 

The new features

 

  • New look and a more modern design
    We wanted to see more wood and curve the load bed. Wood is seldom a feature in bicycle building and we felt it was important to see this.
  • Better wood quality
    Still using recycled wood we upped the quality. The glue is better, the paint we use covers the sides and the finish is a higher quality.
  • New non-agressive grip tape
    This grip tape is easy on bags and camping equipment. It is still non-slip but rubbing your precious cargo will do no damage.
  • New clamping system
    Top of the list of improvements was the rattling issue. Some people just wound some tape around the tow arm and reduced the noise like that, but the new clamping system we developed stops this problem and can be used in a lot of our options. It’s easy to use and very effective.
  • Better hitch connection
    The lollipop hitch has been proved in practice and in tests in the lab. Now we made the lollipop better. We opened the mould on a new lollypop shape that provides more meat for the connection and it fills the tube more efficiently.
  • Better tie-down possibilities
    We had the round holes in the load bed for many years, until it occurred to us that a triangular hole made more sense. It was easier to tighten a cam strap on a straight edge than on a round hole. The box quick-release system still works just as well.
  • Compatible and prepared for all options
    In the last couple of years we have increased the options available for the Y. So the new Y comes with the interface for the options. Pre-drilled holes for the Y surf or the new flag / light holder.
  • Retro-compatible with older trailers
    All your old options will still work with the new Y. So if you have an old hand cart handle or a looong arm you stay compatible.
  • Better packing
    This was important for the new Y. We want to get the trailer safely into your hands. We also included a few little extras to make the first trip better. For example, a grease sachet to use on the wheel axles before first use.
  • Better bolt quality
    We are using better bolt quality for our stainless steel bolts. This should make the assembly of the trailer easier for you.
