All Brian James trailers enjoy a reputation for being easy to tow and this remained an important design requirement for the Shifter.
The team was focused on the chassis where strength and tow-ability are defined. By selecting high specification steels for fabrication, the chassis has been made strong and light.
Advanced chassis design also supports the tough phenolic deck along its full length, which will allow heavy items like rollers to be transported without the deck bowing. This extra support extends the life span of the trailer as it prevents distortion and weakening.
As always, safety is a crucial part of overall trailer design; heavy loads need plenty of strong, low tie-down points. It was decided that the traditional deck ring is noisy, difficult and unreliable in the long term, so an innovative solution was created. It is multiple-hook compatible and incredibly simple, as well as being quiet and self-cleaning.
Special feature - NEW step sides
Robust steps make it safe and easy to step from trailer to ground. The non-slip surface provides grip even when wet. Front steps are tapered to protect pedestrians and cyclists from potential contact with the trailer wheels.
