Rugged and technical terrain is a staple on many modern bikepacking routes. For that reason, trailers are often overlooked in favor of bikepacking bags and packs. However, the new Burley Coho XC looks to solve many of the issues that arise from such rough and tumble rambles. Ultimately, the Coho XC range is targeted toward a variety of riding styles, including singletrack bikepacking and long-distance touring. Features to bolster durability and increase maneuverability include a 16 x 3.0″ tire option, coil-sprung suspension for reduced stress on trailer and gear, and a level frame and fender for maximum security of long or oversize objects. Watch the video below and find photos and specs farther down.
