The price ?
" ... hmm ... a spoonful of sugar first: People have many modes of escape to their personal freedom, and all sorts of kit to facilitate adventure and exploration - none of it is cheap. To take just one comparison, if your mode of escape is a mountain bike, you might pay 1000 - 2000 - 5000 USD.. A quality rucksack might set you back 150-450 USD. A Kajak will give you freedom and relief on water, but for 1500 USD or more. Here's the medicine: In this context, and taking into account the sheer quality of this machine, the 715 Euro price tag of the Monowalker might seem really very reasonable. What price your knees, hips and back, anyway? Consider it is an investment in your future freedom ... or, as the price to pay for a new lease of LIFE!" We are producing this hiking trailer with high end components, made for you who want to spent the most precious time of the year in the great outdoors. The special designed harness is made in Italy at a highly regarded mountain equipment supplier. It can be used to tow the fully loaded hiking trailer or a pulk in the winter and can be used to convert the hiking trailer into a packframe. The trailer itself has many special features that are made exclusively for us and not out of the shelf. Its discbrake and tire are the best quality you can get on the market and the hub has a special design, to convert it from a standard hub to a wheelchair hub to convert the hiking trailer to a cycling trailer with only one additional wheel.
