Montpelier,VT (PRWEB) February 09, 2012
As a leading nationwide retailer and distributor of gear and equipment transportation solutions for vehicles, ORS Racks Direct is proud to announce the launch of a new division specializing in child, baby and infant newborn transport solutions. With the recent acquisition of Chariot Carriers by the Thule Group, parent company of Thule Racks, ORS is strategically positioned to offer the entire product line from Chariot Carriers, widely regarded as the industry's safest and most advanced child carriers available on the market today. Featuring a uniquely engineered modular design, each basic carrier (also called a chassis) can easily combine with any of the various Chariot CTS Conversion Kits. The result is a single child carrier that can serve as a baby jogger, baby stroller, child bicycle trailer, ski pulk shuttle or hiking tow-behind trailer. Many accessories are also available for enhanced comfort and ease of use.
"When we were informed late last year of the Thule Group acquisition of Chariot Carriers, we recognized immediately the brand symmetry both Thule Racks and Chariot share," states Catherine Case, ORS Racks Direct Consumer Relations and Sales Coordinator, "Thule Racks is a lengendary provider of very safe and reliable transport solutions for outdoor gear and equipment. Likewise, Chariot is widely recognized as the most trusted name in safe, reliable and high-performance transportation solutions for children, babies and newborn infants. Now we can easily offer both brands side-by-side to our customers."
The Chariot CX 1 basic chassis (http://www.orsracksdirect.com/chariot-cx1-baby-jogger-child-stroller-chassis.html) is the featured, marquee offering in the current product line up. The CX 1 offers enhanced, highly innovative advancements such as five-point padded safety harness system, all-weather protection, ergonomic comfort and efficiency, deluxe interior and child cockpit design, hand activated rear drum brakes, proprietary CAS Chariot Adjustable Suspension, easy folding and storing capability and more. Also available is the Chariot CX 2 basic chassis (http://www.orsracksdirect.com/chariot-cx2-double-baby-jogger-stroller-chassis.html), exactly the same as the CX 1 but with two seats for transporting one or two youngsters.
The integrated VersaWings on the CX 1 and CX 2 models allow for the attachment of all five Chariot CTS Conversion Kits (http://www.orsracksdirect.com/chariot-baby-jogger-stroller-ski-pulk-conversion-kits.html). The CTS Jogging Kit converts the child carriers into single or double baby joggers. The CTS Strolling Kit converts them into single or double baby strollers. The CTS Cycling Kit converts the CX1 and CX2 into child bike trailers. The CTS Skiing Kit converts the child carriers into a single or double snowshoeing and cross country ski pulk. The CTS Hiking Kit converts them into tow-behind trailers for bringing along very young kids when hiking.
