Monowalker Fatmate

You need the best material because you are the engine.

As an avid climber, hiker and adventurer with a love of the outdoors,…
I’ve spent countless days, weekends and months traversing different landscapes and countries, and like most people who enjoy the freedom of traveling light, I went with the best backpacks I could find. But no matter how light my gear was, I still had the typical strains on my knees, shoulders and neck. As new innovations make lighter gear for the outdoors, it seems that the way we carry our gear has remained the same. read more


The handles are seamless adjustable in their width depending on the hip size of the user and in the height depending on the body size.

You may use the mechanical disc-brake as drag-brake to slow down your walk downhill, but you can activate it as well as stop brake. Easy to use from the left handle.


Included in delivery: 3 sets of packbelts ( width 50mmx length 600mm) to fix your duffle or backpack..

Monowalker Fatmate

Made for any terrain

When developing the Monowalker Fatmate hiking trailer, we had one goal in mind – to be self-sufficient, far away from civilization …
with equipment and food for days on foot, and to get along comfortably despite the heavy weight of the equipment and difficult terrain. The Monowalker Fatmate is not only made to hike in alpine terrain, but as well suitable for expeditions in the tundra, desert, or the Scandinavian Fjell without paths. It is here that it shows its real strengths. With the Fatmate, it does not matter if there is a path, if snowfields obstruct the way or the ground is muddy. With 4 “(10 cm) wide Fattire tires you can move reliably over any terrain. The width of the tire prevents the trailer from sinking, even with heavy luggage and loses ground. read more

without sacrificing comfort. The other half of the gear weight is on the rear wheel. With this advantage, any hike becomes a pleasure. By using the Fatmate rack, with additional side-panniers you can reduce the gear weight on your body by 70-80%. read more

Physical advantages

Due to the free-swinging suspension of the trailer on the Monowalker hip belt, the fully loaded MONOWALKER Fatmate will not affect your movement….
.One-sided loads on the shoulder, neck or back muscles, such as those that can occur while wearing a very heavy backpack, are eliminated, even though you can carry 40 kg of gear or more with the Monowalker Fatmate. Downhill and uphill hikes with the Monowalker causes less stress on your knees, because you only carry 50-30% of your gear weight (40 kg equipment load is the comfort area for trained hikers)

The harness

The Monowalker harness is made for pulling the Monowalker Fatmate hiking trailer and is available in three sizes.( Size S up to 88 cm/ Size M up to 110 cm/L for super strong men) … You will find at the hipbelt three loops to connect with the handles at a position that fits with your hip size. A forth loop is made for pulling two wheel carts or pulks. . A  buckle at the hipbelt front side has panic release features . It can be opened within a second as well with tensile load in case of an emergency. The harness can be attached with two velcro belts ( sewed at the hipbelt and shoulder belt, plus and extension beltset) to the mainframe, to convert the mainframe to a packframe. This conversion offers you the option to carry your gear on your back in case that the trail is unusable for the cart ( e.g. climbing passage or the path is blocked with rocks)

The disk brake

On steep descents, a mechanical disc brake will stop your trailer or can be used as a drag brake. Even pausing on steep climbs will be a real break
because with a pulled disc brake you can lean with your entire body weight in the Monowalker Fatmate and relax, while the Monowalker and the loaded equipment rests in the carabiners on the hip belt and on the wheel. With pulled discbrake, you may store the cart at the wall ( e.g. in the train, in your apartment or when using a public restroom on your hike)

The Monowalker Fatmate handles – made of aircraft aluminium – are adjustable in their width and height according the body height  …
The discbrake can be activated from the left handle and has not to be hold when using it as drag-brake, due to a micro friction inside the lever, that holds the pre-adjusted position. The disc-brake cable can be devided in two parts by a cable splitter, to disassemble the cart when packed for your journey.
