  • Extrawheel Voyager Bike Trailer
    ONLY AVAILABLE WITHOUT WHEEL

    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.

  • Primus ETA Lite Cookset
    Compact All-In-One Stove

    Our new Eta Lite sets a new standard for compact all-in-one stoves. A new locking mechanism (patent pending) makes it very sturdy and thanks to our new Laminar Flow Burner Technology (patent pending) the stove has a lower burner than would otherwise be possible, this resulting in a more stable, lighter and compact stove. Perfect for the solo trip or coffee break for two - with the optional coffee press it makes two cups of fresh coffee on a handful of minutes!. The stove and all accessories, including a 100 gram gas cartridge can fit in its 500 ml hard anodised aluminum pot. It also comes with a heat resistant case with safety strap, that means the stove can be used suspended. The lid cuts cooking times and keeps all the parts securely in place in your backpack – and can also be used as a mug. The stove also features a foot support for stable use on uneven surfaces.
