This is my second Burley Encore, we keep one at the in-laws now as our travel packing needs have grown with the kids. Simply put this is a great product, stable, sturdy, and safe. It provides all the space we need to move around the zoo, beach and most other locations we take the girls.
We shopped around quite a bit before deciding on the Burley Encore. We wanted something that we knew would last for multiple children, had ample storage space in the back, was easy to use and could convert to a stroller. This has exceeded our expectations and we absolutely love how smooth the ride is for our little one, and how easily we can convert it from a stroller to the bike trailer.
Have had this for 3 years and use it non stop. My son loves riding in it. Good for quick trips to the store or a long haul. Like the size and durability. Nothing feels cheap about the trailer. Easily folds down and comes apart.
The trailer is great. I use it to take my son to day care daily and out to the parks on the weekends. We can swing by the farmers market and pick up supplies and never have an issue with space. The only issue is that if I put a helmet on my son, his head gets pushed forward and it forces him to look down. This is an issue with other reviews as well. I still like the trailer, but the design should be updated.
I have a big 3.5 year old daughter and a 10 month old and they LOVE riding around in this trailer together. It's the cutest. I especially like the padding in the Encore v. some of the other models. I also got the stroller attachment - incredibly handy that you can detach from bike so easily and turn into stroller. Tons of storage too. Would definitely recommend!
All I have to say is wow this one is good but holy it's expensive.
I have two little ones and a very active life style. I recently purchased a Burley Encore bike trailer, the drink/snack holder, and the double stroller wheel conversion kit. I could not be happier. After my daughter's first birthday I had purchased a bike trailer from a different company and we were not thrilled with the comfort, lack of sun protection, and ease of tearing it down. It made long bike rides miserable. Nothing is worse than an unhappy child during a LONNNNNGGGG family bike ride. My son just turned one and I refused to make the same mistake by putting both kids in the old bike trailer. After much research, my husband and I bought the Burley Encore bike trailer. The Encore is amazingly different. It collapses down very easily and lays flat. The tinted side panels and the sun protection flap keep the kiddos shaded and cooled which is perfect for the Florida outdoors. The extra safety features like the rollover bar is awesome. The seats and seat belts are very comfortable and dry quickly. Not a single complaint or whine from either little one. In fact, my daughter has said multiple times, "I could sit in here all day!" The storage compartment is very roomy! The rain protection is one of my favorite features. I tested out my Encore at Disney on a rainy day, and it was the envy of every parent and child. My kids remained dry the entire time. It was easy to flip the rain protective flap open without rain drops dripping down the flap into the rider compartment. The rear storage area kept all of our stuff dry. I usually bring my double jogging stroller on Disney days and it's impossible to get kids in and out of the stroller on rainy days without soaking the seats and everything in the storage area. The Encore is also extremely lightweight! My double jogging stroller is easily twice as heavy. The only little issue with the Encore is that it tends to tip back when kids are out of it and when there is weight in the storage area. This is easily resolved by putting a backpack in the rider compartment to evenly distribute weight. With that being said, this is now the only stroller I will be bringing to theme parks. Excellent product! I highly recommend it.
Durable and practical. Bought this this spring and have put many miles on it already. Lots of gear storage, comfortable ride and very convenient. We love that it folds totally flat for transportation.
Bought this now almost 6 months ago for our daughter. She loves the trailer and can't wait for the next opportunity to go riding with us. The Encore is very easy to set up, quick to connect to the bike, and pulls with minimal resistance. Build quality is great. Only takes a couple minutes on the bike to adjust your riding style. We also got the conversion wheels to turn the Encore into a running/walking stroller and the swap could not be easier.
- Easy to take wheels off and fold up. - Great as a double stroller option. - Comfy seating for kids. - We perhaps tried to use it when our daughter was too young (14 months), and she wasn't having fun, but loves it now at 20 months.
