Do not install a car seat or any other seating device not approved by the manufacturer inside the carrier.
Make no modifications to the carrier.
The carrier may become unstable if a parcel bag or rack not approved by the manufacturer is attached to the carrier.
Do not allow any of the child’s body, clothing, shoe laces, or toys to come in contact with moving parts.
Never leave children unattended in the carrier.
Failure to comply with the manufacturer’s instructions may lead to serious injury or death to you and to your passengers.
Maximum capacity of the carrier is 100 lb (45 kg). This includes the weight of the child/children and cargo. Do not use with
children who exceed the weight limitations.
Do not use cleaning solvents on the carrier. Clean only with mild soap and water.
When used with only one passenger, the passenger should be seated in a center seating position.
Passengers must always use seat belts.
Care must be taken when folding and unfolding to prevent finger entrapment.
Never use your carrier to go up or down stairs or on steep hills.
A reflector that complies with CPSC regulations shall be visible on the rear of the trailer and on the side of the wheels.
Before each ride, ensure the attached carrier does not interfere with braking, pedaling, or steering of the bicycle.
Never ride a bicycle at night without adequate lighting. Obey all local legal requirements for lighting.
Ride with extreme caution, never exceed 25 km/h, and slow down to less than 10 km/h around corners and on rough roads.
Use of a trailer changes the stability, braking requirements and riding characteristics of your bike.
Always use flag for increased visibility.
Before the carrier can be used with the Cycling CTS Kit, children must be at least 1 year old and able to sit upright unassisted.
Passengers must always wear a CPSC or CE approved bicycle helmet.
When carrier is used in Jogging or Strolling mode, please observe the following:
• Use wrist safety strap at all times.
• Always use parking brake when the carrier is stationary.
• Never in-line skate with your carrier.
• Maximum weight in the rear storage compartment is 2.2 lb (1 kg). The carrier may become unstable if the pocket is overloaded.
CARRIER MAINTENANCE, CARE AND ST ORAGE
A. Hitch Maintenance - Check that the hitch and back up straps are properly secured before every ride. Periodically check the hitch for
damage, cracks, etc. Replace at first sign of damage. Any damage/deterioration on any parts of your Chariot carrier should be
repaired/replaced immediately to reduce the risk of personal injury.
B. Fabric/Shell Care - Your Chariot Carrier is manufactured from a tough, durable, water resistant fabric. Clean fabric with household soap
or mild detergent and warm water only. Wipe dry. Do not machine dry.
C. Windows - Do not use your carrier in temperatures below -20ºC (-4ºF) . Plastic windows can crack at these low temperatures. If carrier is
stored/left out in very cold weather you will need to let it warm up before folding or uprighting.
D. Wheels and Axles - Wheels should be serviced by a Chariot Dealer at least twice a year. Check wheels for loose spokes and axles for
proper security every time you use your Chariot carrier.
E. Hardware and Fasteners - Regularly inspect nuts and bolts to ensure they are tightened securely.
F. Storage - Store your carrier in a dry, well-ventilated area. To avoid mildew, make sure carrier is dry before storing. Keep your carrier out of
the sun when not in use to reduce fading. Do not store the carrier attached to your bicycle.
Always inspect all parts every time you use your carrier!

SAFETY GUIDELINES
Sixteen important rules for the safe use of your Chariot Carrier.
1. Read all instructions before use! Failure to read, understand and follow these instructions may result in an otherwise avoidable accident in
which you and/or your passengers could suffer serious injury or death.
2. The safe and proper use of this product is your responsibility! Take a practice bicycle ride, walk/run, or hike with a weighted carrier
(weighted greater than your expected load with children and cargo) before using your carrier to ensure you can handle a loaded carrier in
each activity. Be extremely careful on hills and try to avoid them if possible. In addition to safe bicycle practices, the rules listed below
must be followed at all times.
3. Make sure your bicycle is in good working condition. We recommend a frequent safety check of your bike by a certified bicycle
mechanic.
4. Do not modify or alter carrier or bicycle. Ask your Chariot Dealer if you are not sure whether your bicycle is compatible with your
carrier.
5. When used as a bicycle trailer, children must be at least 1 year old and be able to sit upright alone. Consult your pediatrician
before carrying any child younger than one year.
6. Do not exceed the maximum carrier load of 100 lb (45 kg). This capacity includes the weight of child/children and cargo. Articles
carried in the carrier should be well anchored to avoid shifting during travel. Unstable loads and overloading make the carrier less stable
and more difficult to control.
7. Always fasten shoulder harness, lap belt and crotch strap securely and tightly around children. Periodically check placement of
shoulder straps, especially for a sleeping child. Make sure children cannot put fingers into the wheel spokes. Instruct children not to
bounce, rock or lean.
8. Do not leave children unattended in the carrier.
9. To insure a smooth ride, keep tires inflated to the recommended pressure shown on the tire side wall. Check tire pressure
before each use. Over inflating tires or use of high pressure tires can cause the carrier to overturn.
10. Use this carrier only with non-motorized bicycles capable of supporting the additional load of the carrier and child. Do not use
your carrier on electric bicycles, motorcycles, mopeds, automobiles or any other motor vehicle. Check the information supplied with
your bike to verify compatibility or ask your dealer.
11. Do not use a kickstand or other parking device to support the bicycle with a trailer attached. Attaching a trailer can change
the balance of the bicycle making kickstands ineffective. The bicycle can fall over, damaging it and the trailer.
12. Always use the high visibility flag supplied with the trailer. Do not assume you have the right-of-way. Do not pull your trailer in high
traffic areas such as busy streets, highways or anyplace it may be unsafe to ride with children.
13. Always verify that the folding brackets are secure and hold the carrier in an upright position.
14. Avoid riding at night. Your ability to see and be seen is greatly reduced. If you must ride at night, use proper lighting and reflectors on
your bicycle and wear bright reflective clothing
15. Both cyclist and children must wear approved bicycle helmets. If your child is too small to properly wear the smallest size approved
helmet, they should not ride in the carrier.
16. Always obey all traffic laws, and use proper hand signals.
WARNING!
Bicycle trailers can tip over causing serious injury to
passenger/rider.
Hitting an obstacle with a wheel may cause the
trailer to tip over at any speed!

CHARIOT CARRIER CTS CLASSIC SERIES ASSEMBLY
Your Chariot Carrier is shipped 99% assembled.
Initial assembly takes a few minutes. After that,
folding and unfolding can be done in seconds.
1.0 Erecting and Folding the Carrier
NOTE: Any reference to orientation (left or right) is from the passengers point of view while in the carrier.
Remove the wheels, the hitch arm, and the
high visibility flag from inside the trailer
body. Stand at the back of the trailer body.
Grad the upper frame and pull up until it
stops.
Reach into the back flap and pull back on
the inner bar until it "snaps" all the way
back over center. Use your hip or knee for
leverage to help "pop" the trailer into its full
upright position.
WARNING: Ensure that folding brackets are correctly locked before using carrier.
Failure to do so could cause the carrier to collapse.
To collapse the carrier, pull the release
disks and push on the curved back frame
bar until the carrier is completely collapsed.
Note: The carrier can be secured in the
folded-down position by looping the
webbing, hanging from the back of the
seat, through the buckle located at the
rear bottom of the trailer.
WARNINGS:
-
Only an experienced, strong cyclist should pull a trailer.
-
Do not travel faster than 25 km/h and take corners slowly (less than 10 km/h).
-
The extra weight will make your bike less responsive. You will need to ride slower. Because of the added weight, it will take
longer to get up to speed and you will need more distance to stop. While riding down hill with a trailer you will gain speed more
quickly. You will need to use your brakes early and often to keep your speed under control. Remember to apply the rear brake
before the front brake, and to use both brakes. It will take longer to cross streets and paths because of the extra length. Turn
corners gradually and slowly. A trailer can tip over if a corner is taken too fast and too sharp. Use extra care in all situations.
-
Do not ride over curbs, pot holes or other road hazards.
-
Stop and walk bicycle when approaching dangerous road conditions (gravel, sand, wet areas, pot holes, railroad tracks, etc.).
Using the trailer off-road can damage the trailer and injure you or your passengers.
-
Take a practice ride before you take your child along. Ride your bike with the trailer (weighted to simulate an occupied trailer) in
an open area without traffic until you are skilled in handling your bike with a trailer attached.

1.1 Wheel Assembly (Caddie and
Cabriolet)
IMPORTANT: To ensure the axle system is
engaged properly, test by trying to pull the
wheel outwards after installing. The wheel
should be locked in its installed position. If
not, do not use and take your carrier to
your local dealer for servicing.
To insert wheel into axle, simply insert the
clevis axle attached to the wheel into the
end of the hollow axle. Once fully inserted,
you should hear a "click" sound.
To release the wheel from the axle, there is
a safety spring button which needs to be
released located on the axle pointed
towards the rear of the carrier. Pull this
spring button towards the rear of the carrier
and remove the wheel.
1.2 Wheel Assembly (Corsaire)
1. Depress the rubber cap on the wheel hub with your thumb and fully insert the clevis axle into the hollow axle. Once fully inserted and
secured, you should hear a “click” sound. Important: To ensure the axle system is engaged properly, test by trying to pull the wheel outwards
after installing. The wheel should be locked in its installed position. If not, do not use and take your carrier to your Chariot Dealer for servicing.
2. Repeat all steps for the other wheel.
1.3 Hitch Arm Assembly for Cabriolet
1.4 Hitch Arm Assembly for Caddie
Insert the hitch arm by pressing the small button and sliding the arm into the wheel arm
attachment bracket. The large button should
engage into the hole on the wheel arm
attachment bracket.
Insert hitch arm straight into the ‘left’ hitch
arm attachment bracket.
When inserted properly the end cap on the
hitch arm should be seen from the back of
the hitch arm attachment bracket.
Insert the securing pin down through the
small rear hole in the wheel arm attachment
bracket.
5
Insert safety snap pin up through the holes
in BOTH the hitch arm attachment bracket
and the hitch arm. Lock safety snap pin by
securing the clip over the pin.
WARNING: Failure to lock safety pin
could cause the carrier to separate from
the bicycle resulting in serious injury or
death.
1.5 Attaching Your New Quick Release (QR) Skewer & Axle Mounted Hitch Cup to Your Bicycle
Remove your existing QR skewer from your
bicycle’s rear wheel hub. Remove the QR nut
and one Skewer Spring from the Hitch QR
Skewer.
Insert the Hitch QR Skewer making sure that
the cup washer is next to the QR Lever and
the Axle Mounted Hitch Cup is on the outside
of the bicycle frame drop out. Ensure that the
Axle Mounted Hitch Cup is oriented so that the
cup itself is below the Hitch QR Skewer and
the cup opening is facing forward.
Note: The small diameter of the Skewer
Springs should point inward towards the
hub axle.
Position the Hitch QR Lever so it points straight
out from the hub (open position). Tighten the
QR Nut on the opposite end of the Hitch QR
Skewer until finger tight.
1.6 Attaching Your Axle Mounted Hitch
Cup to Your Bicycle if You Have a Solid
Axle Style Hub
1.7 Attaching Your Carrier to the Hitch Cup on Your Bicycle
Move the Hitch QR Lever to the closed position.
It should take a noticeable amount of force to
close the lever (it should leave an imprint of
the lever on your palm). The Hitch QR Lever
should always be closed so that the lever
points to the rear of the bike. This will prevent
the Hitch QR Lever from catching and
opening while you are riding.
Note: The Hitch QR Skewer will not be
used with a solid axle style hub.
Remove the axle nut from your bicycles rear
wheel hub axle (Note: if there is a washer,
remove and discard it – the Axle Mounted
Hitch Cup will replace it). Install the Axle
Mounted Hitch Cup on the wheel hub axle.
Ensure that the Axle Mounted Hitch Cup is
oriented so that the cup itself is below the
solid Axle Bolt and the cup opening is facing
forward. Reinstall the axle nut and tighten.
Wrap the Hitch Back-up Safety Strap
around the bicycle chainstay and attach the
safety clip to the D-ring on the hitch arm. If
the Hitch Back-up Safety Strap is not long
enough to wrap around the bicycle chainstay (because of a non typical rear triangle),
wrap it around the rear axle flange
(between the drop out and the wheel hub).
Place the CH-5 Hitch Ball into the Axle
Mounted Hitch cup (inserted from the forward open end). Fully insert the hitch ball
into axle mounted hitch cup.
Place the Securing Pin through the holes on the
front of the Axle Mounted Hitch Cup so as to trap
the CH-5 Hitch Ball in the Axle Mounted Hitch
Cup. The Securing Pin must be installed from the
top of the Axle Mounted hitch cup. Pull the rubber
strap over the front of the Axle Mounted Hirch
Cup and over the securing pin end. The “Chariot”
logo should face forward.
WARNING: Failure to properly install and
tighten the QR skewer or axle nut could
cause hitch failure and wheel loss
resulting in serious injury or death.
Failure to insert securing pin and to
latch the rubber strap could cause the
carrier to separate from the bicycle
resulting in an accident and
serious injury.
1.8 Reflector Assembly
Failure to properly attach the hitch backup safety strap could result in loss of
carrier and serious injury or death to the
occupants.
Do not use the hitch if you cannot properly
install the hitch back-up safety strap to
your bicycle. See your Chariot Dealer for
possible alternatives.
6
Fasten the red reflector through the grommet on the lower rear panel of the trailer
and one yellow reflector onto each wheel.
1.9 High Visibility Flag Assembly and
Installation
1. Assemble safety flag by inserting one
end of pole into the other.
2. Insert flag pole through the small loop,
located near the top rear left corner of
the trailer, and straight down into the
sleeve.
Note: Remove the flag before collapsing
the trailer or the flag pole will break.
WARNING: Do not ride without flag in
place. Failure to use high visibility flag
could result in an otherwise avoidable
accident.
1.10 Weather Cover Features
Note: Your Chariot Carrier has climate
control features designed to regulate
your child’s temperature. Periodically
monitor your child to ensure that he/she
is comfortable in terms of temperature.
WARNING: Failure to use the weather
cover could expose your child to flying
rocks, insects, and other debris.
Attach the loops from the back corner of the
weather cover over the aluminum sleeves
located at the upper rear section of the carrier.
Fasten the front corners of the weather cover to the knobs located on the front lower corners of the
frame. Caddie owners will need to attach the webbing strap to the front lower corners of the frame.
During cooler temperatures use the rain cover to keep your child warmer. If this is too warm or you are worried about ventilation, open one or
both of the small triangular side vents (for Corsaire models). For more ventilation, roll up the rain cover and secure it by looping the elastic loops
around its ends. If it is bright outside or the sun is bothering your child, use the back panel as a sunscreen. To do so, remove the weather cover,
flip the back panel over the front of the carrier, secure it to the Velcro tabs located on the upper frame, and re-install the weather cover.
1.11 Child Placement and Seatbelts
WARNING: Failure to properly attach seatbelts could result in serious injury or death to occupants in the event of an accident.
WARNING: Failure to seat a single child in the center position could cause the carrier to tip over causing serious injury or death.
WARNING: Always adjust shoulder harness and crotch strap so they meet at child’s lower chest. Adjusting harnesses and buckles near your child’s neck could cause serious injury.
TWO CHILDREN (Caddie)
1. Unclip both shoulder harnesses from the side release buckles and unthread them from the
O-rings.
2. Seat children in carrier.
3. Place the outer crotch straps between children’s legs and adjust so O-rings are centered on children’s lower chest.
4. Thread the shoulder harnesses through the backside of the O-rings, clip into buckles over
the children’s right shoulder and tighten by pulling the loose strap ends from over the children’s leftshoulder.

TWO CHILDREN (Cabriolet and Corsaire)
1. Undo the two buckles located at the top of the padded shoulder harness, leaving it attached to the crotch belt,
but flipped down.
2. Seat your child(ren).
3. Slide the shoulder belt height adjustment located on the vertical web straps, in the seat back, to the same
height as your child(ren)'s shoulders.
4. Lift up the shoulder harness and connect the buckles over each shoulder. Be careful to not pinch your child's
neck.
5. Adjust the system using the crotch belt and shoulder belt length adjustments until the Chariot logo located on
the shoulder harness is positioned over their lower chest.
6. Buckle the waist belt(s) around their hips. The waist belt goes in front of the crotch belt and the buckle should
be centered.
7. Snugly tighten all belts.
ONE CHILD (Cabriolet and Corsaire)
1. Use the center seating position.
2. Move a padded shoulder harness to the center seating position, thus using the center crotch belt and the two
middle shoulder buckles.
3. Use the two middle waist belts and buckles.
4. The two outboard waist belts, two outboard crotch belts and one shoulder harness are not used. Safely tuck
them aside in the carrier. Do not remove them.
5. Go to section TWO CHILDREN (Cabrilet)
ADJUSTING THE PADDED SHOULDER HARNESS
1.Unbuckle and remove the padded shoulder harness from the carrier. To undo the buckle hidden behind the
Chariot logo, squeeze in from the sides of the fabric cover.
2.Located on the upper front of the shoulder harness are three adjustment loops per side: two made of webbing,
one of cord. You will use these to fit the shoulder harness to one of four different sizes: XS, S, M & L.
3.To achieve the correct size, sleeve through or remove the shoulder belts with the plastic buckle through these
adjustment loops, as indicated below:
XS: Do not sleeve through any adjustment loops; thus unsleeve the shoulder belts from all loops.
S: Only sleeve through the lowest webbing loop. When sized for XS and S, the un-used, upper sections of the
shoulder harness go loose over their shoulders. Smooth them down their back for comfort.
M: Sleeve through both webbing loops. This is the default setting.
L: Sleeve through both webbing loops and the top cord loop.
4.Reinstall the shoulder harness into the carrier using the three plastic buckles. The male buckle on the crotch
belt clips into the female buckle behind the logo in the shoulder harness.
5.Go to section ONE CHILD or TWO CHILDREN.
Notes: The padded shoulder harness should be symmetrical and level (the Chariot logo should be horizontal).
Do not cross the shoulder belts to use up extra shoulder belt length. Do not pass the shoulder harness under an
infant's arms to hold them in a sitting position. Use a Baby Bivy, an Infant Sling or a Baby Supporter with a child
that cannot sit upright unsupported.
1.12 Suspension Adjustments (Corsaire)
All Corsaire models come with adjustable suspension. Four adjustment ranges are suggested, but it
can be used in any position. The weight ranges suggested are based on the carrier being used for cycling.
The setting could be softer or stiffer for strolling/jogging. Experimenting may be required.

NOTE: To determine the weight, you must combine the weight of the passengers and cargo. To
adjust simply loosen the knob, slide bracket to
desired weight range, and tighten the knob.
NOTE: The bracket should be moved to the
location next to the weights noted (not on top
of the position).
If the suspension is making a hard "knocking"
sound, it means the weight setting is too low
and you need to slide the bracket further
towards the rear. Typically, the suspension on
both sides should be set to the same position/range, however it is possible to have
them set to different positions if a lighter child
is on one side and a heavier child on the
other.
Note: the 4 positions outlined in table where
1 represents the lightest load and 4 represents the heaviest load.
