Weber trailers, built for the long haul.
Exhibitor Profile: Weber Technik
On the move with Weber Bicycle Trailers, accessories and hitches: intelligent products all about bikes.
Since 1985 we have dedicated ourselves to developing high quality and innovative products for people who ride bikes. Today, exactly twenty-five years later, a lot has changed. Yet one thing has remained the same with all the developments: our efforts to design intelligent products with ultimate safety and durability.
Milestone 1992: the Ritschie1 appears on the market. Its innovative features at the time became – and still are – standard in part to many other trailers: The fixed three-layer aluminium chassis and the first suspension in a child trailer for more safety and comfort, the two-part bicycle hitch and a touring top hard shell cover for changing your child trailer into a load carrier.
In 1997 we presented its successor: the Ritschie². Once again with many innovative ideas, like the first child trailer brake system suitable for serial production. Since 1997 there have also been new features in the form of the 5-point harness with its own childproof catch, plus the universally usable Weber baby shell. With the first skater set and a third fully functional wheel introduced in 2000, you can also jog and skate with the Ritschie².
Milestone 2003. The Monoporter is introduced and promptly wins the ISPO Brand New Award. In the same year Weber presents the Ritschie² SE “Sport Edition”. The Ritschie² S BIKER is the winner of the big test by Stiftung Warentest.
Milestone 2008. Move to our own new production facilities.
Besides bike trailers and accessories, Weber components enjoy increasing acceptance with customers and manufacturers, above all the Weber hitch system. Since 2004 Weber has been the world's first manufacturer to offer a full range of hitches for all trailer types and applications.
With HitchUp, Weber provides complete conversion sets for the first time, with which all conventional trailers can be retrofitted to the Weber system. Some reputable bike manufacturers have already modified their frames so they can be directly adapted to the Weber hitches.
We do not see our products as part of a throw-away society, but rather as quality products with the highest value retention. Furthermore, we consciously focus on handling raw materials and our resources responsibly.
For us, diligent production in Germany is a basic requirement for a consistent quality level and for our social responsibility.
