The Beez is a lightweight bicycle touring trailer made with laminated wood and steel.
French manufacturer Beecyclo reckons their design has at least seven advantages:
Attachment to axis: fast and universal
Attachment to the axis in less than 30 seconds. Compatibility with all 26 to 29 inch hollow axle bikes: road, touring, mountain biking, full suspension, tandem, recumbent, etc. Allows the use of panniers.
Driving comfort: self-damping structure
The laminated wood structure provides flexibility and cushioning, like a skateboard deck. It replaces heavy and maintenance-intensive mechanical damping systems.
Simple and total dismantling: compact transport
Its small size once disassembled allows it to disappear in a bag to travel neither seen nor known by bus, train and even by plane (at no extra cost).
Large carrying capacity: 20 Kg or 100 L
Strapped onto the steel baggage hoop, your backpack, travel bag or even better a waterproof bag, follows you everywhere. The space under the tray allows you to hang a tent, water bladder, etc.
Longevity and rigidity: steel frame
It allows for rescue repairs at a lower cost, during a journey far from the beaten track (it is easier to weld steel than aluminum).
Ultra-light empty weight: less than 5 Kg
What you save in trailer weight, you gain in payload. The Beez is the lightest self-damping trailer on the market.
The Beez was designed and manufactured in, and is only sold in, France.
