EUGENE, Ore.-- Burley, known for its award-winning child bicycle trailers trusted by generations of families since 1978, is proud to unveil its latest innovation in outdoor recreational transport gear – the Burley Solstice® Jogging Stroller.
The new Burley Solstice, available now, is the perfect blend of style and activity that will enable parents and caregivers to share their passion for the outdoors with the newest addition to the family. Like all Burley products, the Solstice is built with thoughtful design, innovative safety and rugged durability, and can withstand even the toughest conditions.
“Our team of exceptional designers and engineers are continuously looking for new products to enhance the way our customers enjoy the outdoors with their families,” said Burley CEO Michael Coughlin. “Burley has been providing the safest, most functional and durable bike trailers since 1978, so it was a natural transition for the company to bring a new kind of jogging stroller to market with the same safety and durability standards Burley products are known for around the world, from generation to generation. Plus, we are headquartered in Track Town, USA so running is in our DNA.”
The new Burley Solstice features one-handed, quick-fold technology, a lockable front swivel wheel and a comfortable, padded seat. A telescoping handlebar adjusts for varying heights of the parent or caregiver – and push-button accessory release makes adding or removing various accessories (such as a car seat adapter or snack bowl and cup holder) a breeze. Ample cargo space makes it easy to stay on the go with a little one in tow. The Solstice weight capacity is 75 lbs. for the child plus cargo.
Additional accessories available for purchase include: a Burley bunting bag, to keep little ones cozy, a handlebar console to keep the necessities in easy reach, a rolling travel case for families who want to see the world with a Burley Solstice, and a weather shield to protect from the elements.
The Solstice also features the new Burley S.I.T.™ Seat with spring-integrated technology, which will revolutionize how parents get their children in and out of trailers and joggers. The new seat pad system features elastic bands in each of the connected shoulder and waist belt pads, which entrap the harness straps and pull them away from the middle of the seat, preventing straps from falling limp or getting stuck underneath the child – making transitions in and out of the seat a breeze. The patent-pending technology is the first of its kind in the trailer/jogger market. The easy-to-clean seat is also water and stain resistant, machine-washable, and provides optimal cushioning for tiny adventurers.
Raising the Bar on Safety
Since 1978, Burley has been committed to the safety of every child who comes in contact with one of its award-winning outdoor recreational transport gear products. Widely recognized as the founder of the bike trailer segment, Burley products are often seen on the road after generations of use. Burley’s line of multipurpose child, pet, cargo, and commuter trailers and now the Solstice jogging stroller, exceed safety testing standards, and use only materials that are nontoxic and safe for children. Long recognized as the industry quality and safety leader, Burley helped develop the ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) safety standards for bicycle trailers. Burley’s rigorous in-house testing protocols are among the toughest in the industry. In many cases, they far exceed the ASTM standards. The company performs safety testing of its products during the design phase to optimize seat, harness and frame safety and performance. Every Burley product, including the new Solstice, is designed and engineered in Eugene, Oregon by a team that is passionate about providing families with the best recreational transport gear on the market.
