Hans has decided to test the Aevon trailer UNO 100 after seeing it at the Eurobike show 2018.
“At this year’s Eurobike, I came across Aevon‘s booth. Their bike trailers are made for single-tracks, contrary to the trailers I have known so far. I decided to test the UNO 100, the lowest-priced model from Aevon. It is made of steel and intended for a use on roads.
When you unpack the trailer you need to set up the beam (connecting the trailer to the bike) and the rear wheel with its mudguard, it’s done in a few minutes. I recommend that you add the quick release for the hitch, it makes it easier to connect and disconnect the trailer without using tools. If you’re going on holiday, it seems a really good device.
I first went for a ride of about 15km around my place : the Rhine-Hesse, in Germany. I immediately cycled uphill for 4km with a 7% gradient and went again downhill and was pleasantly surprised. You don’t really feel the trailer behind you.
I then tested the UNO 100 trailer for an everyday use, loaded it for my shopping, parked near my supermarket, went for regular rides. I checked the usual bike paths in my area. The real challenge is the usual for anyone who cycles regularly : sharing the road with other users (cars and others bikes). That’s already an issue when you’re not equipped with a trailer but you need to keep in mind that your gear is much longer than usual, especially when you’re turning. In the end, I can say it went rather smoothly considering the load your trailer enables to carry.
My conclusion is : the UNO 100 is surprisingly pleasant to use. You just need to get used to the length of the trailer behind you and adapt the way you cycle.”
