Thule Chariot Chinook 1 (Aqua/Black) With First Year Of Life Accessories
The Thule Chariot Chinook 1 is the first carrier in Thules Chariot Urban Series. The carrier is uniquely equipped with integrated dual strolling and jogging functionality, allowing for varied urban adventures right out of the box. Key features include one-child capacity, built-in strolling and jogging functionality, a pivoting and locking front wheel, additional multi-sport functionality (sold separately), the Chinook First Year Of Life accessory pack, one-hand easy chassis folding, a reclining seat, an integrated accessory cross bar, and an adjustable handlebar.
Five Activities. Four Seasons. One Carrier
Like all Thule Chariot child carriers, the Chinook utilizes a modular activity kit system, which provides parents and caregivers with a choice of how to maintain or embark on an active lifestyle, and bring their children along. The chassis of Thule carriers can be combined with a variety of conversion kits, allowing for multiple outdoor activities including jogging, strolling, bike trailer, hiking, and cross-country skiing (kits sold separately - strolling and jogging functionality is built into the Chinook model).
Stroll Or Jog With The Pivoting And Locking Front Wheel
The Chinooks unique, integrated pivoting and locking front wheel allows users to use the carrier out of the box for both strolling and jogging. For stroller functionality, the wheel is lifted up into position from its folded back against the bottom of the carrier. Releasing it, lifting it up level to the frame tube, and clicking it into place makes it the front, third wheel in the carriers stroller configuration. The support structure of the wheel projects slightly forward from the carrier frame, and the wheel axle slightly from its forks. In stroller mode the wheel is free to spin 360 degrees, providing traditional stroller mobility. To transition to jogging stroller mode, the wheel rotates until it projects forward, and locks into place. The forward and slightly downward direction of the wheel provides stability during jogging sessions.
Chinook (First Year Of Life) Accessories
One of the most important features of the Chinook for young families is its ability to be used from the day the child is born. This is made possible through the safety and convenience features made available exclusively in the Chinook 1st Year of Life accessories included with your Chinook carrier. These include the Infant Car Seat Adapter, which allows car seat attachment to the accessory crossbar, with children facing back towards parents; a detachable cargo bag for use away from the carrier; and the Chinook Baby Supporter, designed for the safe use of the interior of the carrier with young children who are developing muscle control.
New Wings For Connecting Kits
The Chinook features new side oriented wing structures for connecting conversion kits. They have a more streamlined look, but still have all the same easy-to-use slide and lock functionality as other Thule Chariot child carriers. Integrated into the wings are mechanics preventing a bicycle trailer kit hitch arm from entering the wing when a car seat is placed on the carrier. Safety is Thules primary concern.
