The Thule Chariot Lite is a more basic version of its fancier sibling, the Chariot Cross. Like the Chariot Cross, the Chariot Lite has great safety features, is delightfully simple to set up and use and offers outstanding protection from intense rain and sun exposure. It's lighter than the Chariot Cross, which makes for an easier towing experience in hilly terrain. In terms of passenger comfort and versatility, however, the Chariot Lite falls behind the Chariot Cross, and ultimately we didn't think that this pared-down trailer justified its high price tag.
In this review, we focus on the differences between the Cross and the Lite. You may also find it helpful to check out our full review of the Chariot Cross, our Top Pick for Athletes.
