Overview of the Qeridoo Sportrex 2 bicycle trailer

Qeridoo-sportrex2-uberlickMeanwhile, the brand Qeridoo four Fahradanhänger commercially available. Three of them we tested. The Sportrex 2 is the larger version of the Qeridoo Sportrex 1 and is therefore designed for two children.Both products came to the market in 2015 revised. Although Qeridoo has only been distributing children’s and sporting goods under other bicycle trailers since 2006, they are characterized by high customer satisfaction.The Qeridoo Sportrex 2 is considered a luxuriant equipped rounder among bicycle trailers . Is priced the Qeridoo Sportrex 2 in the lower middle, and is an entry-level model for the price conscious .Compared to its smaller Sportrex 1, the two-seater is only marginally more expensive, offering more space and safety. In addition to the main use as a bicycle trailer, the Qeridoo Sportrex 2 can be used as a baby buggy and city buggy with the included buggy wheel. The locking function on the buggy wheel even allows it to be used as a jogger.

Scope of delivery and first impression of the Qeridoo Sportrex 2 bicycle trailer

Qeridoo-sportrex2-in-detailThe Qeridoo Sportrex 2 is delivered in a compact carton with the dimensions 115x31x73 and a weight of 20 kg. All components are carefully packed in foil and foam. For parents who are interested in information, a comprehensive user manual with clear and documented instructions is provided in German. This is provided with large color photos, easy to understand and provides all necessary and many additional information. Furthermore, the installation instructions as video on Youtube available. Parents will get the Qeridoo bike trailer next to the conspicuous passenger compartment, two lightly pumped wheels, an adjustable handlebar, a buggy wheel with jogger function and a drawbar with trailer coupling. A safety pennant, two plastic wheel spacers and two velcro headrests cover the comfort and safety requirements. The materials used leave a robust and durable first impression. The seams are satisfactorily processed and numerous Velcro fasteners and elastic bands suggest a precise start-up.

Startup of the Qeridoo Sportrex 2 bicycle trailer

Qeridoo-sportrex2-wheel-mountingAfter a brief Browse the user guide, we were able to Qeridoo Sportrex 2 bike trailer and just quickly commissioned. For this purpose, the middle aluminum bracket has to be pulled back from behind as described in the instructions, until it engages firmly from both sides in an upright position. The large 20-inch wheels can be easily attached to the frame thanks to the «push-button» wheel mounting. To do this, simply press the rubberized button on the center of the wheel and insert the wheel into the wheel holder until it is hacked. The spring adjustment should be done before the wheels are installed, since the adjustment is not very simple afterwards.

 

 

When not in use the drawbar is folded under the trailer

All small parts , such as wheel, front and rear reflectors are already inherent when assembled , saving additional setup time. The only parts that need to be screwed are the two wheel deflectors and the adjustable push handle, which simultaneously acts as an override bracket. The push handle is easily attached to the frame of the bicycle trailer by means of a handy twist lock. Unfortunately, we miss some markings so that the handle can be positioned correctly. Here they should rely on your point of view. A hex key is required for mounting the wheel deflectors, but this is not included in the scope of supply.Final is the drawbar to attach to the bike trailer rack. This is mounted on the frame of the trailer with a swivel clamp and fixed with a safety catch. The axle coupling supplied is attached to the wheel axle. In our test this happened with a quick release. For the entire commissioning we needed almost 13 minutes, which is an above-average effort, considering that most of the small parts had already been preassembled. We recommend the use of another person to facilitate assembly.

In practical tests , the first impression of materials and their processing could be confirmed. For Qeridoo Sportrex 2strapazierefähige substances are used in bright colors. Because of this and the variety used reflectors is Kinderanhänger very striking and is well perceived on the road. Except for some beauty defects the seams were well processed. The attachment to the bicycle was made with the help of a supplied axle coupling. This is simply fixed to the wheel hub and should be dismantled after each tour. Since this one a few centimeters stands aside and can take injuries in case of carelessness.In summary, mounting on the bicycle was satisfactory due to its speed and simplicity. Very positive is the stability of the bike trailer in our test noticed. After repeated deliberate overturning of the bicycle on either side, the trailer always stayed in a vertical position and did not fall.

Qeridoo-sportrex2 safety harnessThe spaciousinterior of the passenger compartment offers ample space for one or two children. The seats are lightly padded and offer the sprouts a comfortable sitting position. The padded seat belt system is variably adjustable and contributes to seat comfort. The supplied headrests are soft and can be flexibly adjusted in height. For the transport of only one child, the belt system should be placed in the center of the bicycle trailer. This increases the stability of the trailer. Exceptionally user-friendly and thoughtful, we found the buckle buckles. Both shoulder straps can be inserted independently of each other. This is particularly useful when the children are fidgeting, thus facilitating their seatbelts.

The weight of the trailer is clearly felt

The weight of the trailer is clearly felt

The first attempts with the Qeridoo Sportrex 2 were very positive .The test weight of 9 kg was hardly noticeable on the rear axle. Mean uneven floor fell thanks to the sophisticated suspension hardly.Nevertheless, caution is advised when driving in the city, as the car turns out a little farther than usual, and the distance to parked cars can quickly go to zero due to the overspeed. These two weaknesses, however, must be overcome with some consideration. During the test trip, we have extensively practiced and observed the ascent and descent on curbs. Here beat the Qeridoo Sportrex 2 mediocre compared to Thule Chariot Cougar 2 . Curb ramps were palpable. In the case of lateral descents, the bicycle trailer reclined several times so that a feeling of instability arose. However, the Bordsteintests remained uneventful.

 

Sportrex2 demonstrated excellent driving characteristics in the old town

Sportrex2 demonstrated excellent driving characteristics in the old town

With a continuous driving over cobblestones that were comfort features for the occupants as well as the suitability of the adjustable suspension tested. In this difficult terrain, the Qeridoo Sportrex 2 behaved exemplary . This was confirmed by the sensors in the vehicle interior. The Sportrex 2 is suitable for almost any terrain. In the case of journeys on unsurfaced cycle paths and gravel tracks, the bicycle trailer proved to be very quiet due to its large bicycles. We were very satisfied with the agility and agility of the trailer. In the Elchte there were no complaints and Wendemanöver on all sides were very exemplary. Only with the sharp maneuvering from the stand proved the 29 Zöller on the test bicycle as too large, so that the drawbar in the profile wedged.However, this situation does not occur with normal use and there are no complications from the outset for smaller wheel sizes.

 

Meadows and forest drives clearly are not one of the strengths of Sportrex2

Meadows and forest drives clearly are not one of the strengths of Sportrex2

The bicycle trailer of Qeridoo feels on paved and little challenging tracks at ease. This bicycle trailer is less suitable for journeys in the forest and meadows, as the weight of the heavy terrain is noticeable and the drive has to be increased considerably. Due to the small size of the front wheel, the jogging function is only recommended to a limited extent, as the strengths of the Qeridoo Sportrex 2 are clearly located elsewhere. Very positive is the enormous space in the rear of the child trailer noticed. Here you can easily store toys and luggage. Small parts such as keys and mobile phones find their place in the small pocket.

 

 

 

The Qeridoo Sportrex2 is less suitable for the car holiday

The Qeridoo Sportrex2 is less suitable for the car holiday

The manufacturer does not recommend removing the handle after installation. However, we were faced with a challenge when we tried to stow the trailer in the car. The bicycle trailers fitted only after disassembly of all the wheels and the curved handle in the trunk of the VW Passat. The remaining square was filled by the large wheels. The Qeridoo Sportrex 2 could also provide space in the cellar or staircase, since the bike trailer in the built-up state has an average of 89 cm. It is possible to store the trailer in a collapsed position, but a stable edge is missing.
