The Extrawheel Voyager is an incredible single wheel trailer design. Unlike other trailers, the cargo is propped on either side of a full size wheel. This unique placement allows the load to be placed along the the center point of the wheel for tighter turning clearances and a shorter overall profile. The cargo also sits with the center of gravity below the axle of the wheel to keep the wheel pressed firmly against the ground rather than bouncing when riding over rough terrain.

The Voyager is light, sturdy, and extremely compact, designed specifically for transporting an extra set of panniers. The minimalist design makes it easy to pack with all of your bike gear. Almost any style panniers can be used with the Voyager including our Ortlieb Panniers and Vaude Panniers. Loads should be packed evenly with heavier items towards the bottom.

Another advantage to the Voyager is riding with an extra full-sized wheel. The Extrawheel Voyager can also be used with a large variety of front wheels. We offer the option of purchasing the Extrawheel Voyager without a wheel so you can outfit the trailer with a matching wheel. This can come in handy if you need to swap out your front wheel in an emergency situation. The Extrawheel can function with a bent, damaged rim much better than your bicycle can.

Mounting the Extrawheel:The Extrawheel’s mounting fork is made from high tension steel. The fork fits to the Extrawheel’s frame by tensioning firmly over the engagement points. The Extrawheel includes a rear quick release to mount to the rear wheel of your bicycle. The Extrawheel’s fork mounts to a bicycle by spreading it over the Extrawheel’s quick release. The fork snaps into place over the fitted ends of the quick release and is held in place by the fork’s spring tension. The width that the fork spreads open is adjustable to fit variations in bicycle’s rear axle widths. The Voyager trailer also includes 3/8 x 26 Extrawheel nuts to fit the fork.View Bike Trailer Blog’s Instruction’s for Assembling the Extrawheel Voyager.

Extrawheel Voyager Bike Trailer

I give this trailer 4 out of 5 because build quality is good and if it fits you, then you will find little to fault with it. It is light and tracks really well and often I wouldn't even notice it is there. The full size wheel allows for easy rolling over obstacles; I pulled it over some pretty rough terrain and it did surprisingly well. The attachment fork will adjust to fit any rear dropout spacing. But if you need some customization you will probably have difficulties. They could do more with this concept to make it usable to a wider audience.

Fi-rstly, if you want to use it for a fatbike, the good news is that the fat fork option will fit most fat tires. My Big Fat Larry on a Rolling Darryl rim fits but based on the clearances of that tire it looks like the Bud and Lou will rub; it would be really close, but for sure you aren't going to have mud or snow clearance so they basically won't fit. It would have been nice if they made the fat fork a cm longer and at least a cm wider each side to accommodate any fat tire -- they seem to have designed it around the Endomorph tire which is now old school. This clearance issue wouldn't be so much a problem on a trailer like the Bob because the attachment fork is not sprung steel and you can hack and weld away to your heart's content, but you can't do anything with the Extrawheel, you are stuck with what you get, unless you heat it up and bend it which I presume will affect the springiness and strength of the steel. Another big warning is that the attachment fork will not fit over a Pugsley rear end because it is offset 17.5mm and the tire will rub on one side. You can add spacers to the quick release to reverse offset the offset which I think is a bit hokey considering all the forces going onto your axle. But spacers will not work with a hub that does not use a quick release (like internally geared) and has a solid axle. There are not enough threads to allow for spacers and the trailer will not mount on the axle; you will have to find somewhere else on the dropout to attach some individual Extrawhweel nuts.

Second-ly, the dropout spacing of the trailer itself is 100mm, the same as a regular front mountain bike wheel. So the claim that the trailer wheel is swappable with the bike wheels in an emergency doesn't work with fatbikes or a regular 135mm rear wheel, only with regular 100mm front wheels. It looks like you could fit a narrower 29" wheel in there. Also, the trailer's tube spacing is quite narrow and it won't even take a somewhat wide 2.5" regular mountain bike tire. The good part here is that the trailer's tubes are regular steel tubing so you can change it if you are good at metalwork.

T-he other issue is that they have completely redesigned the trailer. It used to have the trailer tubes go all the way behind the tire and wrap around, and the stowage was a mesh sack on each side of the trailer in which you could throw a lot of stuff. This was a nice way to do it. They seem to have abandoned that and have gone for only a 1/2 wheel length true fork with pannier mounts. This makes the trailer lighter and smaller but does not allow you to carry anything behind the axle of the trailer. Not sure why they did this, maybe there were some liability issues. It would be nice to have the option between the two styles however.

A minor quibble is that if you are weak it may be difficult to mount the trailer onto your bike's rear axle since it requires quite a bit of force to spread the fork. Also if you rest the trailer with the attachment fork on the ground then the bearings will get full of dirt from sticking to the grease and will require cleaning and re-lubing every time before mounting it.

All in all a great trailer, but I would like to see 1) increased dimensions for the fat attachment fork to fit any fat tire, 2) options for three different hub widths in the trailer (100, 135, 170mm) along with wider tube spacing for fatter tires to allow for true swappability with the bike's wheels, 3) a couple different cargo mounting options rather than the simple pannier mounts.

I really enjoy it's low gravity center of mass... hardly noticed it tagging along! The way it attaches, together with the low center of weight and drive-ability, makes it one of the best trailers/pannie-r system I ever tried. The Voyager is light, sturdy, and extremely compact. The minimalist design makes it easy to pack with all of your bike gear. The Expert panniers hold a massive 80 Litres and are made from Cordura fabric. Extrawheel is designed specifically for transporting an extra set of panniers so if 80 Litres is not enough you can easily add more.

I recently finished the Great Divide Ride and feel very qualified to give a review of the Extrawheel. I did the whole 2,800 miles in a year that was uniquely difficult. There were devastating floods from Canada to New Mexico resulting in trail conditions like no previous year.

I'll start by saying my background is mountain bike cross country racing, so my intent was to ride EVERYTHING. With my Extrawheel I rode the devastated upper Flathead River section of Canada, the technical descent of Richmond Peak in Montana, everything rideable on Lava Mountain (both up and down), cleaned the entire climb and descent of the Polvadera Mesa in New Mexico, and negotiated what was left of Forest Service Rd. 28 in the Gila. Not once, that is ZERO times, did the Extrawheel dislodge from the rear wheel skewer. The trailer is light, nimble, and tough.

The trouble Brandt T had with his trailer coming off on dirt roads I can only assume was due to the tension in the fork not being set properly. The instructions for doing so come with the trailer. The one fault the trailer has for off-road use is lack of clearance if you use a pannier set up. I, instead, used whitewater dry bags strapped lengthwise on the pannier racks in addition to a 29 inch mountain bike wheel. This gave me huge clearance and it was never an issue.

A little history. I've used a BOB yak 16 trailer or panniers for 20 years to tour domestically and in Europe. I got the extrawheel to try to lose some weight and with the idea of maybe using it for longer international trips.

Generally it works great on the road. It assembles in a snap and is really overbuilt given the limits of the attachment sytem. it weighs basically what they say, and affects the bikes handling less in tight corners than a BOB trailer. Bob makes the bike push (understeer) when fully loaded.

Now the bad news. The extrawheel is NOT for serious off road use. My girlfriend and I took Bob and Anna (we had to name it ) to the san juan mountains in southern Colorado near the Colorado Trail. On day two shortly into the steep, rocky and fast jeep road descent Anna bailed out (the trailer disconnected). The forks that attach to the QR came free. The fork remained attached to the trailer. Granted I was cooking along and she was loaded ( 35ish lbs) but its really disconcerting when your gear leaves. The crash also broke an ortlieb pannier clip ( I had a spare with us). The fix was easy, replace buckle, reattach pannier, reattach Anna to bike and head out. But the rest of the 7 mile descent was a boring slow ride to keep the trailer happy, not me happy.

Bob, though heavier, has never come free no matter the speed nor roughness of the trail. The extrawheel trailer needs some positive locking mechanism to keep the forks on the QRs besides the spring tension for serious off road use. The trailer can easily handle the use, but the attachment system is the very weak link in the chain. For road or light trail use the extrawheel is great.
