Can I attach a Trailer to my ST1/ST1X/ST2?

Children are better protected in a trailer than in a child seat on the luggage rack. Please remember that a trailer affects the road behavior of the Stromer. On tight bends, certain trailers have a tendency to tip over. Ride with caution and adjust your speed and riding style to the conditions.

Some trailers are only approved by their manufacturers for use with bicycles or pedelecs (pedal assistance up to 25 km/h). Please always observe the advice of the trailer manufacturer.

Legal position in the EU

  • There is no option for trailers in the European vehicle type approval for Stromer with pedal assistance of more than 25 km/h. Attaching trailers to the ST1 is therefore not permissible.

Legal position in Switzerland

  • Riding with a single-axle trailer is permissible (Federal Road Traffic Regulations RTR Art. 69 Para. 1 and following removal of RTR Art. 63 Para. 5).
  • No more than two children may be carried in a trailer on protected seats (RTR Art. 63 Para. 3 d).
  • A child may be carried on an attachment running behind (pursuant to decree on technical requirements for road vehicles Art. 210 Para. 5) if he or she is able to operate the pedals when seated (RTR Art. 63 Para. 3 b).
  • In Switzerland there is no obligation for carried children to wear a helmet. However we recommend that children in a trailer should always wear a helmet and be secured using the trailer’s own belt system.
