Using a bike trailer to transport your canoe is a convenient and easy option, especially for short distances. Canoe trailers attach securely to the bike's rear hub, allowing you to pull the trailer and canoe to a nearby paddling destination. When selecting a trailer, make sure the dimensions and capacity fit your boat's measurements. Look for other features, including easy storage, weight, durability, replacement parts availability and easy assembly.

Transport your boat by using the Paddle Boy bicycle trailer for canoes. The trailer weighs 7.26kg., 170gr. and also carries other sport equipments like sailboard, surfboard and kayaks. The cart attaches on your bike's rear hub and holds on securely with its 16-inch wheels stabilising the frame. The frame is constructed with stainless steel hardware and lightweight anodised aluminium. Also included are straps and replacement parts. The webbed straps with cam buckles secure the canoe to the trailer at the rear wheel carriage and also at the v-cradle. The trailer has a carrying weight capacity of 34kg. or boats up to 15 feet in length.

Wike Bicycle Trailer

The Wike bicycle trailer weighs just 5.9kg. with a carrying capacity of 45.4kg. You can transport a boat with a maximum width of 36 inches, although you can order a wider kit to accommodate your boat if its wider. Constructed with lightweight aluminium and 20-inch bicycle wheels, the trailer also consists of a padded yoke and cart to protect the boat's surface from damage. The yoke attaches the front of your boat with a joint to the bicycle seat post. The trailer's two-wheeled cart supports the weight of the canoe and can be easily manoeuvred. Another feature is that the wheels are removable for easy storage.

Paddle Cart Bike Trailer

Paddle Cart's canoe bike trailer can fit boats that range from 10 to 18 feet in length. The trailer is made from anodised marine grade aluminium pipe and can be detached to sections less than 6 feet for storage. Attach the trailer to your bike seat post with a hitch system using a U bolt attachment. The hitch is unobtrusive and can be left attached to your bike without interfering when riding without the trailer. The trailer's mechanism allows you to lay your bike down on the ground with the canoe and trailer staying upright. Made with hoop spring lynch pins, the sections can be assembled to accommodate any hull design, including short yaks and long canoes.
