The hinterher bicycle trailer: Variable mounting options for all loads

Due to the low edge of the container, all kinds of boxes and packing bags can be strapped quickly and securely. Since a lot of gear is extra long, you need the option of being able to fasten even these types of transports in a few simple steps.. That’s why we developed the unique tub-form, which offers a simple and secure solution for almost all transport needs.

 

Side boards, open or closed boxes, collapsible boxes, vegetable crates etc. can be retrofitted, screwed or strapped on without a problem.

 

The low edge of the container allows the most versatile options of attaching. All types of boxes can be instantly and securely fitted. Packing bags and other flexible materials are also not a problem.

The hinterher bicycle trailer: Background + Ideas

The idea behind the hinterher trailer

 

As transport is a part of our everyday life: Get on your bicycle and take everything you want! And since it is getting more and more cramped in the cities, we need transport solutions that allow us to do everything but don’t take up space, that look good as well as being fun. That is how we came up with hinterher!

Bicycle trailer hinterher: Design + Versatility

 

After extensive research and field-tests, we have developed an ideal and versatile chassis-form. This form enables almost all transportation tasks to be solved easily, safely and elegantly. Most things are transported in crates, and, more infrequently, with fixed side panels. The low edge of our aluminium trays permits the quick and secure fastening of boxes and transport material of all types, yet provides little air resistance when pulled unloaded. Crates can be loaded in or simply lifted out and are strapped fast against slipping and falling. At the same time, the trailer is as small and lightweight as possible and as large as necessary. If required, the board walls can also be retrofitted.

Quality + Price

 

The hinterher bike trailer was developed by and for professionals. That is why we are committed to delivering the highest quality. Not only in terms of manufacturing and materials, but in terms of design and functionality as well.

 

The focus was less on the travel trailer, which is built in an ultra-light manner, but much more on making it a day-to-day tool for handling (almost) all transport tasks. The use of high quality materials and manufacturing processes does have its price, but you can also feel and see it. The virtually indestructible, beautifully-crafted stainless steel chassis, which is meticulously powder-coated, withstands almost all retrofitting and add-on construction work.

 

All components are of extremely high quality and are well thought-out, are available separately and can be easily replaced. Therefore our weight specifications for payload etc. are due more to the braking capabilities of the bicycle as well as for steadiness, in the case of very heavy, very high or generally improper loading — our trailer can, in extreme cases, support significantly more than the specified kilos.

 

 

You can purchase your hinterher bicycle trailer from qualified retailers or directly from our online shop.

Branding and colours

By now you will have noticed that this project means a lot to us, how much thought has gone into the development of all aspects of the hinterher and how little we have acted on “economic” or “commercial” criteria. But it was and is important to us, that we have a product that represents the diversity and liveliness of its applications.

 

The focus here was not on the appearance, but the quality of the "tool" and the representation of the diversity of urban life. Colourful and fun designs offer a new look in load transport and make you want to leave the car at home.

 

The sophisticated colour scheme is an essential part of the appearance and also allows for special colour-coordinated trailer combinations for companies. This trailer makes a positive impact on your surroundings by conveying a clear attitude to life  — not by pointing your finger, but just through a friendly and convincing appearance, e.g. a cycling tradesman.

Transport in the city

 

Transporting heavy and bulky things with ease — that was our idea. We live and enjoy working in the city; we love the benefits and want to actively contribute to making the city more liveable. We like to ride bicycles — even for work — and we experience every day how much more superior bicycles are to all other types of transport in the city.

 

 

 

 

Bicycle transportation with style

 

For us, this means not only carrying things from A to B. Transport by bicycle saves money and time, keeps us fit and allows us to participate actively in city life. Transport is a part of our daily routine, whether as a family, a tradesperson, for sport or for leisure...


 

At Hinterher, we want to make everyday life easier, we want to make a high-quality product that we ourselves enjoy using and that works. That’s why the Hinterher is manufactured in uncompromisingly high quality and is being continually developed, using regional companies and short supply routes.

 

And because the bicycle trailer is made so lovingly and beautifully, you will, firstly, absolutely want to have it and secondly, you will take good care of it, so that, thirdly, it will remain in good condition as long as possible. This is sustainability at its best.

Why a bicycle trailer?

 

Load-carrying bikes are cumbersome and expensive; when you don’t need them, they just get in the way. And where do you park them?

 

With a large, inflexible trailer you have the same problem — what do you do with the gear, when you don't need it?

 

When you’re travelling — for camping, work or shopping — your hinterher fits into any car boot, roof box, hallway, basement or attic...


 

 

Why the hinterher bicycle trailer? 

 

Your biketrailer hinterher combines the three most important transport options in a single device: Bicycle trailer, handcart and trolley.

 

In just a few clicks, the bike trailer transforms into a push cart, that continues to assist where the bicycle can’t. A few more clicks and the hinterher can be pulled up the stairs as a trolley.


 

All important transport options are always at hand, cleverly integrated and with a timelessly elegant design.

 

In other words: The trailer is loaded and driven up to the entrance of the house, decoupled from the bicycle using the hand cart's handle or taken into the building as a loaded hand cart — and all this without having to unload and load your gear again. The hinterher bike trailer fits through any door, into the elevator, from the supermarket checkout to home.

 

 

Transporting extra-long loads

 

A lot of gear has excess length. This is not a problem for the hinterher. Long loads can be laid easily and safely on the low edge of the container and strapped securely, without the centre of gravity moving too far up. We also have tow bar extensions for extra-long cargo.

The sleek design also allows the smallest possible pack size with the greatest possible stability!

Shaping + Design

 

One of the reasons we began developing this bicycle trailer: There was simply not a single trailer that met our demands for functionality, quality and design. So, one thing led to another, and in the end we had a smart, extremely versatile and artistically very distinct trailer — which caught on so well, we decided to go into mass production.

 

 

Form follows function — ultimately we have rethought and improved all details of our bicycle trailer, have developed our own tools for it and even applied for patents for many of our inventions. The overwhelmingly positive feedback of experts and our customers confirms our belief. It is really is worthwhile to produce good quality in one's own country.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MADE IN MUNICH

 

As a company from Munich and as inner city residents, we have developed and built this bicycle trailer almost exclusively with regional partners — and almost all components continue to come from the region.

 

The contribution to sustainability through the use of a bicycle trailer should not be spoiled by long transport routes and intransparent supply chains. That is why it is not a hollow advertising slogan, when we say: hinterher - MADE IN MUNICH!
