12mm Thru Axle for Kid Trailer
Robert Axles for Kid Trailers are designed specifically to fit your 12mm thru-axle bike and allow attachment of any hitch-mounted trailer. These fit any trailer that has two wheels and a single point of attachment to the axle. This includes all the two-wheeled child, pet and cargo trailers such as: Thule, Chariot, Burley, Instep, Carry Freedom, and many more.
Purchase our Kid Trailer axle for your bike. Share your stoke for cycling with your kids. Simplify your life by allowing quick and secure attachment of your trailer to your best and favorite bike. Enjoy the adventure.
Since 2013, we have been an important part of cyclists’ adventures all over the world. Our axles have millions of miles on them in mountain bikes and road bikes, carbon bikes, fat bikes and e-bikes. Our axles are specifically designed to handle the high-torque loads generated by e-bikes.
Your stock thru-axle is not strong enough to haul your precious cargo! Our axles are 3 to 4 times stronger than the stock axle that came with your bike. Our stainless steel axle ends provide a safe and secure attachment point of the hitch to the axle. The axle is quick to install and remove with a common 5mm hex key.
Our axles are not just designed in the USA, but are made here as well. They are machined by avid cyclists to the tightest standards in the industry. We safety test, to failure, every batch of axles we produce to ensure they exceed your expectations.

Robert Axle for Kid Trailers replaces your stock thru-axle so you can attach a child or cargo trailer to your 12 mm thru axle equipped bike.
- This axle is compatible with Burley, Carry Freedom, Chariot/Thule, Croozer, Instep, and many more hitch style trailers.
- The true length of the axle shaft is 229 mm, but can be shortened using the included 12 mm spacer. This allows for axle lengths of 217 mm or 229mm. Please note: Thru-axle lengths do not equal hub standards. An axle has to be longer than the hub to fit in the frame. A 12×197 hub does not equal a 197mm long axle.
- This axle has a 1.0 mm thread pitch.
- The axle shaft and axle end are precision CNC machined.
- The axle shaft is 7075 aluminum and hard black anodized for rugged durability.
- The axle end is stainless steel, which allow for mounting of the hitch provided with your trailer. The threads are M10x1 (metric).
- Hardware for attachment of the hitch is included; the hitch is not.
- No special tools required. Design allows for installation or wheel removal using your standard 5mm hex wrench.
- Designed, built and quality tested in the USA. Proven around the world.

Not only is the product exactly what I needed but the quality of the website and follow up from the company is excellent! We are using the trailer often and the through-axle is working great!

Used this Product on a Felt DD10 Fatbike. I had to take off 3.5mm from the conical spacer in order to make the axle go all the way into the screw thread on the right hand side as it should.
It fits perfectly into the frame when no wheel is mounted, but when the rear hub is in, the whole thing gets widened slightly, which required the change on spacer.
Maybe you could provide the axle with a set of 2 or 3 slightly different spacers to account for such cases.
Otherwise a great product, no complaints there.
Great axle, I’m using this on my Canyon Dude CF fatbike. Seems better than the axle that came with the bike. Didnt even get stuck in the customs. Thx.

Fast and quality!
I ordered an axle for my Canyon Dude fatbike to be able to use our Thule Chariot with the new bike. The axle arrived here, in Finland, after one week from the order. The axle itself feels really sturdy and it was easy to install with the instructions attached.
I highly recommend!

I bought a kid trailer for my Specialized FatBoy and was unable to hook it up with the through axel. Stumbled across this website and thought I would Give them a shot. I got my Axle in the mail a couple weeks ago and it has been Great. Swapped axles just like normal and had the trailer hooked up in 5 minutes. Have Already logged nearly 50 miles with no issues. If hesitant about it – don’t be.

I have a Specialized Carbon Fatboy. I was looking for an axle to hook a kids trailer to take my niece and nephew on the American Tobacco Trail and all the local greenways. I went to local specialized bike shop and they didn’t have an axle for fat bikes ( they buy from burley).
I found this website and ordered it. Beveled washer nut fit the contours of the carbon frame. Easy installation. I put about 30mi with the trailer so far on gravel, uneven terrain and paved greenways. Great purchase. Thanks Robertaxle project for the solution.

Very good ! perfectly fits on my Canyon Dude 2020 for a kid trailer. It took 2 months to reach France due to the Covid19 (not surprisingly !) but now it’s on the bike and gives a real feeling of quality and safety. Thank you !

Fantastic axle, quality is far better then my factory one. Bought this for a burley nomad as opposed to the burley made thru axle made overseas. Have another in a different size for another bike. 100% recommend.
outstanding product and excellent customer service. I doubted that the axle would fit but was assured that it would work. It arrived timely and fit perfectly.
