There are five reacha models: reacha SPORT, reacha CITY, reacha WEBER, reacha XXL and reacha PRO. Each model comes in different variants depending on the choice of wheel sets and load compartment.
You can get a good overview of the different reacha models on our bicycle trailer collection page, but here are the most important differences.
The SPORT, CITY, WEBER and PRO models come with our aluminum frame in standard dimensions. In addition the reacha PRO has reinforced drawbar mounts. The reacha XXL, on the other hand, has its own XXL frame that is 30 cm longer and 10 cm wider.
reacha SPORT, reacha PRO and reacha XXL have the longer so-called SPORT drawbar. This means that particularly long equipment can be placed and transported on the drawbar.
reacha CITY and reacha WEBER, on the other hand, have shorter drawbars and are therefore more manoeuvrable and more suitable for transport in the city. The reacha CITY can also be used as a hand trailer thanks to its upward-pointing drawbar. The reacha WEBER, on the other hand, is attached to a Weber bicycle hitch at axle height and is therefore primarily suitable as a bicycle trailer. Both CITY and WEBER drawbars have a side stand for easy parking.
We offer reacha SPORT, CITY, WEBER and XXL with three different wheel sets. The compact 20” tires are ideal for the road and has the smallest pack size. If you want to go faster on paved roads or when ground clearance is important, then the street 24” tires are recommended. Off road and in the sand, the beach 20” fat bike tires with stainless steel wheel bearings come into play. There is also a so-called d.i.y. variant that does not contain a wheel set and makes it possible to reuse old bicycle front tires.
The reacha PRO, on the other hand, has particularly large 26" fat bike tires with stainless steel wheel bearings, so that it can be pulled through the sand even when heavily loaded.
The load area:
We offer all reacha models either without a loading area [“naked”], with a textile trunk as a loading area [“trunk”] or with a platform as a loading area [“platform”].
The "trunk" is a textile bag that has open corners on the sides. With the help of the Velcro fasteners, it can be adjusted to the length and width of the frame. When disassembled, the trunk can be used as a carrying bag for the reacha.
The “platform”, on the other hand, has a fixed width and is attached to the center rails of the frame. If the frame is set wider, a side loading bracket (“bow”) can be used to transport items such as a SUP board upright. In addition, the platform can optionally be expanded to form a box with side walls as accessories.
Connection to the bike:
Please note that all reacha models do not come with a bicycle adapter. Many reacha customers use the SPORT, CITY, PRO and XXL models exclusively as handcarts and for the WEBER choosing the right hitch strongly depends on the bike to which the trailer is to be connected.
reacha SPORT, CITY, PRO and XXL can be connected to the bike's saddle pole with the so-called Bike Connector 2.0. This allows long items to be transported to protrude beyond the rear tire, giving you even more transport length.
The reacha WEBER, on the other hand, is attached to the rear axle of the bike using a Weber trailer hitch.
reacha SPORT, CITY, XXL and WEBER come without any additional accessories apart from the frame, drawbar, possibly wheel set and loading area. With the reacha PRO, on the other hand, two additional loading brackets with side walls are included in the price.
For transport in the city and objects up to 1.5 meters, we recommend the CITY or the WEBER. reacha SPORT and reacha PRO are designed for sports equipment up to a length of 4.5 meters. For particularly high loads in manual operation, we recommend the reacha PRO up to 80kg payload. For everything beyond 4.5 meters (canoes, two-seaters, collapsible boats, fishing kayaks, etc.) the reacha XXL comes into play.
The choice of the right wheel set and the right loading area depends heavily on your application and cannot be answered in general terms. On the product pages you will find further information to help you make the right decision.
