You get a workout while your kids enjoy the ride.
With the Burley Encore Child Trailer hooked to your bike, having a babysitter is no longer a requirement for you to get a ride in. Despite being a scaled-down version of the deluxe D-Lite trailer, the Encore still boasts comfort-enhancing features like the adjustable sunshade and padded seats that can be reclined for afternoon naps. A zip-down rain window keeps kids dry if the weather takes a turn for the worse, and generous rear storage provides space for picnic supplies and extra gear. Even better, accessory kits allow you to easily convert the trailer into a stroller, a jogger, or even a ski-mounted sled.

Burley Encore Product Features
The Encore® bike trailer for kids is perfect for those who want a comfortable, safe and affordable bike trailer.
great trailer with room to grow
bought this for one kid for now with room to grow, bought with the Burley Double Jogger Kit and had no problems attaching to my bike or my husbands. It has been nice being able to get out there and enjoying this great weather and state we have. It is awesome to be a regular stroller as well, quiet large for an everyday stroller but maybe when we have two kids to stroll around it will come in handy.
Overall, really great
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
Easy to put together, trails lightly and like a dream. I love the 'trunk space' in the back. My only complaint is that for nearly $500, there should be a wheel attachment for the front to turn it into a stroller. Great overall, my toddler falls asleep in it almost every ride :)
Good, but not worth $500
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
I purchased this trailer about two years ago from Backcountry.com. It has been great to have a bike trailer to tow/push my two kids, but I'm disappointed with the condition and performance of the trailer with normal use. Primarily:
1. The zipper for the rain flap is no longer catching the teeth, so I cannot zip it closed. There is only a 1-year warranty on the zipper I come to find out.
2. Some of the spokes are rusted out already, causing an annoying noise when moving.
3. The shoulder straps are uncomfortable for the kids and don't stay in place well.
4. The small stroller wheel attachment is very noisy.
5. The foam handle bar pad is already tearing away.
6. There has been a product recall for the tow bar falling off during riding. Ours hasn't yet, however.
It's great to have, but I expected this thing to hold up much better for $500 new.
