Utopia Kranich Pedelec WEBER KARGO rig Utopia Edition with 50kg

Team “Weber-Utopia”: the Utopia Kranich hitched up to the WEBER KARGO "Utopia edition" trailer. A top transport alternative!

How well can heavy goods be transported in a cycle trailer, as opposed to with a cargo pedelec?

Answering this question is the Utopia “Kargo” rig, which can be bought as a set.

When it comes to the ride results it was right up there: range and power assist levels are above average, and the overall price of bike and trailer is relatively low.

This version of the trailer, specially configured for Utopia, is solidly equipped with lighting, double stand, heavy duty hitch and two disk brakes which work as over-run brakes, ensuring that the rig can be braked without problems, and without the trailer jack-knifing.

For loading, the trailer offers a 80x60 cm load bed, surrounded by aluminium walls, and with a cover and strap.

The “Kranich” offers additional capacity for a total of up to 40kg on its rear carrier and low rider racks (these details came too late for us to include it in the 120+ group).

This rig can certainly show off when it comes to weight.

This all brought the “Utopia Kargo” a respectable “Good” in the Transport50+ cargo pedelec group and thanks to the versatile hitch – it can also tow a child trailer.
