Earth+Kin, makers of “sustainably designed family gear”, officially launched their Mule ATW (all-terrain wagon) in October after a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign. The family business’ founders have backgrounds in design, engineering, and mental health. They want Earth+Kin to be a company that is about “more than gear” by focusing on family and community. Their products fuel their passion: “Supporting families in their physical and mental health”.
After looking and ultimately not finding a suitable non-profit to donate to, they decided to start their own. Now, 10% of Earth+Kin’s profit goes back into their e+k Foundation. The e+k Foundation’s mission is to improve the mental and physical health of families using nature as the playground.
The Mule ATW
The Mule is a “pull-tow-hitch” wagon with “dual-axle technology”. The Mule is designed to be towed behind your standard bike or ebike, or you can choose to pull it by hand or attach it to the back of your vehicle right in the trailer hitch. You can mount the Mule to any vehicle with a 2″ or 1.25″ trailer hitch with the 5 different vehicle attachment choices.
The “fat tire” equipped, 16″ wheels look to be good for sandy beaches or muddy trails.
The Mule connects to your bike’s rear axle using Earth+Kin’s proprietary attachment method. The steel attachment piece stays on the bike with the trailer attaching/detaching via quick release, stating that it takes only “4 seconds to remove”.
The Mule is constructed using 6063 aircraft grade aluminum and hardened steel making it easy enough to be pulled by your standard bike or ebike by using the trailer mount.
All of the components, like the handle, side rails, and wheels are attached to the Mule via quick release, making them easy to remove and store in the Mule.
The assembled dimensions of the Mule are 35″ (L) x 29″ (W) x 27″ (H). The interior cargo dimensions are 27″(L) x 18″ (W) x 16″ (H).
Every Mule comes with an elastic cargo net and a limited lifetime warranty.
