Air Vent?? The Pet Pilot MAX Dog bicycle basket
also features an expansive Front Air Vent. The large, triangle shaped vent (cloth mesh covering the steel wire frame) is located on the bottom half of the front panel and allows for cooling airflow to flood your pets lower body as you ride, flushing out hot, trapped air if your pet’s body fills most of the basket … the faster you go the better the breeze! For cooler weather rides, add a small blanket to block the vent.
The Pet-Pilot MAX Dog Basket is designed to be hands down the most stable dog bicycle pet carrier on the market today. Guaranteed “No Sway” !! The patented handlebar mount is the key to this stability. Other bike baskets tend to wobble when loaded …. not the Pet Pilot MAX! The fast and easy attachment method used to lock (and unlock) the dog bicycle basket makes it very convenient to switch between “Pet Rides” and “People Only” rides – or even “Grocery Runs”! If your small pet fits comfortably inside the basket – the Pet-Pilot MAX will easily support your pets weight – Guaranteed! Whether you are taking your small dog or pet for a ride… or just going to the local grocery store to fill up the basket – you can count on the Pet Pilot to get the job done!
