NORDIC CAB ACTIVE: The latest addition from Nordic Cab has continued many of the solutions from the Explorer model, which we have previously tested here in UTE.
The bicycle trailer includes suspension, parking brake, UV protection, retractable sunshades, mosquito nets, and rear LED light.
The fact that the car is designed for two children from 1-5 years makes it a good alternative for outdoor families that are active all year round. Even in wind and snow, the child is completely protected. There is also a good storage space behind the trailer, and the handle has several adjustment options to fit adults of different height.
Some of the things we like also with this trailer are the adjustable “Nordic Cab Comfort Seats”. You can lower the seats to 45 degrees, which makes it good to sleep in for the child if needed. There is no big operation to lower the seats, but we would like to see that it could be done while the child is sitting in the carriage. The load capacity is good, with a large pocket on the back of the trailer. Acitve can accommodate two children, but it may be a bit cramped if one child approaches the age of four or is a little big. If you have only one child, it can be moved closer to the center, or you can use the rest of the place to carry with you. The child is fastened with five-point safety belt. Even though the trailer can be folded when not in use, it requires a little space.
The previous Nordic Cab we tested had 10 cm. wider skies if you were going to use it as a pulk (Ski-sled), which made it feel very steady also off the beaten track. Now it has got narrower skis, and these were not available until the magazine went into print.
One of the advantages of this model is that the price is lowered from both competitors and their own cars. Dimensions mounted: B 81 x L 93 x H 96 cm.
Large windows provide good visibility and insight. Retractable seats.
Requires space during transport / storage. Might be tight if there are two older children.
