One Chariot. Five Choices. Unlimited Possibilities
Like all Chariot child carriers, the Chinook utilizes modular Chariot CTS (Child Transport System), which provides parents and caregivers, with a choice of how to maintain or embark on an active lifestyle, and bring their children along. The chassis of Chariot carriers can be combined with a variety of conversion kits, allowing for multiple outdoor activities, including: jogging, strolling, bike trailer, hiking and cross-country skiing (kits sold separately).
Stroll or Jog With the Pivoting and Locking Front Wheel
The Chinook’s unique, integrated pivoting and locking front wheel allows users to use the carrier out of the box for both strolling and jogging.
For stroller functionality, the wheel is lifted up into position from its folded position against the bottom of the carrier. Clicking it into place makes it the front, third wheel in the carrier’s stroller configuration. The support structure of the wheel projects slightly forward from the carrier frame, and the wheel axle slightly from its forks.
In stroller mode the wheel is free to spin 360-degrees, providing traditional stroller mobility. To transition to jogging stroller mode the wheel rotates until it projects forward, and locks into place. The forward direction of the wheel support, and the forward position of the wheel when locked into place spread the weight of the carrier, providing stability during jogging sessions.

The Chinook ‘1st Year Of Life’ Bundle
One of the most important features of the Chinook for young families is its ability to be used from the day a child is born. This is made possible through the safety and convenience features made available exclusively in the Chinook ‘1st Year Of Life’ Bundle, which includes the standard Chinook 2 carrier, with the following must-have accessories:
Infant Car Seat Adapter
Chariot’s Infant Car Seat Adapter allows car seats to go straight from car to carrier. Car seats attach directly to the top of the Chinook’s accessory crossbar, with children facing back towards parents pushing the carrier, so that they are always in view.
Detachable Cargo Bag
Chariot’s Detachable Cargo Bag is a dual use carryall accessory that that can be used on the carrier and on its own at destinations. The Cargo Bag attaches at the rear of the Chinook, serving as an roomy general storage bag. It detaches in seconds for use away from the carrier, and features convenient shoulder strap functionality.
The Chinook Baby Supporter is designed for the safe use of the interior of the carrier with young children who are developing muscle control. The Baby Supporter has firm, padded head protectors that keep babies’ heads in place, and a multi-point harness that immobilizes torsos.

Temperature and Visibility Control
Temperature and airflow control inside the cockpit is managed through a combination of side window vents and the 2-in-1 weather cover. The cover rolls up and down as needed, providing either full protection against the elements, or a mesh barrier. UV blocking tinted polyurethane windows at the sides can be zipped down to reveal mesh panels. An integrated central sun shade is also available for sun protection.
Reclining Seat Position
Reclining seat functionality adjusted from the exterior rear of the carrier, and an internal footmat are perfect for on-the-go naps.

One-Handed Chassis Folding

New Wings for Connecting Kits

Integrated into the wings are mechanics preventing a bicycle trailer kit hitch arm from entering the wing when a car seat is placed on the carrier. Safety is Chariot’s primary concern.
Roomy, Rugged Frame
The chassis frame is constructed of rugged anodized aluminum tubing covered with water resistant, photoluminescent Energlo fabric for 360-degree visibility when in use.
Chariot Adjustable Suspension
