The most important thing first: The bike trailer from reacha are NOT certified for the transport of children or babies. Instead the reacha compact with its 20 inch tyres is ideal for small or large purchases in the city or for excursions into the countryside. So backpacks, tents, pavilions and (or) a Weber grill can be transported on this bike trailer with ease. It makes it the ideal companion for bicycle tours and family excursions - even on gravel roads.
The great advantage of all reacha trailers is that they are modularly constructed, which means that the size of the loading area can be adjusted as required, i.e. it can be adapted to individual needs and enlarged with additional loading brackets (bows). For use in the city, this means: from jute sacks, postal parcels or beverage crates to furniture or photographic equipment, everything can be transported from A to B with the reacha compact.
And also for trips into the countryside with the whole family it fulfils its purpose. No matter whether it's a camping holiday, a trip to the bathing lake or the open-air swimming pool, a trip to the barbecue or whatever your family has planned outside: if you want to transport equipment, gear, toys, sports equipment or other things by bicycle, the
reacha compact is suited for more than 30 kg and is very stable and durable.
Stability has its price?!
The price of 499 EUR may seem daunting at first glance, but if you take a look behind the scenes of the bicycle trailer's manufacturing, the sustainable production and durability of the reacha products counter the first (expensive) price impression with a fair price-performance ratio. Why? You buy a reacha bike trailer only once in a lifetime.
High quality wheels
Besides the fact that you have to change the tyres at times, because they wear out at some point of course, all the wheels on the reacha trailers come from experienced quality manufacturers, which means we can guarantee the longest possible service life. And depending on the surface and the intended use, different wheels (18" to 26", hub width 100 mm to max. width 4") can be used.
Frame made from aluminium and injected carbon
The frame, on the other hand, is built locally in Rosenheim from stainless aluminium. Due to the modular, individually adjustable design, we could not completely do without plastic in production, but we have found a climate-friendly solution: All larger plastic or plastic parts are made of so-called "injected carbon", hergestellt. These are mainly recycled materials from aviation, which are particularly stable and durable.
Textile trunk for loading
reacha also places great emphasis on stability and durability in the production of the textile loading areas and the associated Velcro fasteners. So far, no reacha customer has complained about this. And like all the components of our bicycle trailers, the loading area is rustproof and weatherproof. You can use the reacha compact also for a (family) trip to the beach with sand and salt water, or even in wind and weather.
Note: with the reacha pro we have a trailer in our assortment with aluminium side walls. But this is then reflected in the price.
Easy assembly and disassembly - without any tools
We know from our customers' reports that they take ours bike trailer to all kinds of destinations. To the beach, the lake, the mountains, for short and long tours or just for shopping in the city, as Dominik told us in this nice story: “I can take a big package to the post office or go shopping and bring everything home easy and I tell you, the looks are really great when the trailer on the bike is loaded with two beer crates.” What's also worth a look is the video of our managing director Floko. He shows how quickly and easily the reacha compact bike trailer can be set up. Without any tools it takes less than four minutes. So if the family spontaneously plans a bike ride to the bathing lake on Sunday morning, it is reacha immediately assembled and ready for use.
With the bicycle trailer reacha beach we offer an emission-free alternative for bringing surfboards, sails and other equipment directly to the water. With its fatbike tyres, it rides easily over sand and gravel and can also be pulled by hand if necessary.
Grab the SUP and quickly to the lake after work? For stand-up paddling enthusiasts this is not a question of wanting to, but rather a question of logistics. reacha has at least three trailers in its range with which you can take your SUP to the nearest lake at any time by hand or bicycle. We have taken a closer look at the models and explain the differences: they are less in price but more in use.
reacha has four hand and bike trailers for kayaks in its range, which are ideal for outdoor sports enthusiasts who prefer to pedal their bikes emission-free to the nearest lake or river. Each model can transport a kayak up to 4 to 5 metres long.
