The Leggero ENSO is designed as a multifunctional child’s bicycle trailer, suitable for use either as a pram or as a sports jogger. It does all that you need a child transporter to do, and so helps young families to stay mobile for sport or in everyday living. In development of the ENSO, consistent attention was devoted to a well-thought-out structure, convincing solutions on the level of detail and outstanding product quality. The stable undercarriage, with its oil-damped suspension system, guarantees child comfort and safety. The sophisticated mechanics make it easy to switch over the unit from trailer to pram mode, and an integrated folding mechanism serves to save space for purposes of transport or storage. There is also a collapsible luggage compartment for shopping, enhancing the usefulness of the vehicle for everyday use. The textile cover can be quickly and simply rolled out, offering the child secure protection from the weather.
Comments by the jury
This child’s bicycle trailer, which has been consistently designed with safety and ease of use in mind, is in the best sense a typically Swiss product – functional, technically sophisticated, solidly made, long-lived, precisely crafted and easy to operate. Another convincing feature is that only materials and components made in Europe were used for the trailer, and workshops employing persons with special needs were involved in production – a shining example of sustainability on both economic and social levels.
