At Nordic Cab, we support reuse and consider it a sign of product quality. Second-hand Nordic Cab products are sought after, easily sold and have a high resale value when you and your family no longer require the product. Remember, it remains an excellent transport cart and sled even after the children have outgrown it😊
It is worth mentioning that our products have undergone significant improvements over the years, even though there is not necessarily a big difference in appearance.
Important: We do not recommend buying second-hand models dating from before 2010 for use with children. More information about this can be found further down in the article.
Below you can find a timeline of some of the most important improvements made to Explorer
- Improved quality of hood and window materials.
- Wider tyres with improved quality
Our own specially developed skis (read about the advantages)
Separate attachment points for skis provide improved balance in the sled
- Parking brake
- 10 cm higher interior space
Centred pram wheel at the front of the trailer. Easier to push and more compact trailer
- Drag, harness and skis
- Bike mount
Inspecting safety, wear and tear or damage in a Nordic Cab product
- The bike mount looks intact and does not have excessive rust.
- The locking pin that secures the drag to the bike mount springs and secures properly.
- The safety wire is free from damage and rust.
- The flexible part of the drag should feel firm and should not move too much. Looseness could indicate internal breakage and that the drag should be replaced.
- The locking bolt that secures the drag to the box is spring-loaded and secures the drag to the trailer. The end of the locking pin should be visible on the outside.
- The locking bolt works as intended and the tyre is fully secured when fitted.
- Check that the tops of the wheels do not lean towards the trailer. This could be a sign that the trailer has been overloaded and the trailer frame may potentially break.
Inspect the frame for any breakage or cracks
Characteristics of key year model groups
The height of the trailer was increased in 2016 and Explorer was equipped with a parking brake.
Unique characteristic: equipped with a parking brake, as on prams.
A number of important upgrades were made to the trailer in 2010.
With normal wear and tear, this remains a good trailer even today and the online store still stocks plenty of accessories and spare parts.
Colour: red, blue and yellow.
Unique characteristic: curved vertical zipper along the side of the rear frame.
Nordic Cab launched in 2006 and this is the oldest series.
As it is more than ten years old and there have been major changes to the safety standards for bike trailers in this time, we do not recommend buying second-hand products from this period for use with children. It can be difficult to recognise wear and tear and any damage from use that may have occurred. If the trailer is in good condition, it can still be used to transport shopping. There are limited parts available that fit.
Colour: red, blue and yellow.
Unique characteristic: Horizontal zipper under the edge of the window on the side. The very first series does not have a side zipper.
