 Owners Guide

The Pet-Pilot® "MAX" dog bicycle basket was developed to accomodate larger dogs than the "Original" model. Over the last couple of years, improvements were made to the overall design, function and look of this very popular dog bike basket. Our goal is to continually tweak the design to make the MAX basket even better with every production run. Some of those enhancements are listed below.

"MAX" model enhancements:

  • October, 2019 - spacer tube included with all mounts - greatly increases compatibility with newer bike handle stems
  • Additional safety strap from handlebars to basket
  • Top cover tabs include neoprene core, provides more cushion and durability
  • Handle now includes a foam sleeve for greater comfort
  • Handlebar mount support arm protective rubber sleeve added
  • Improved the top rim frame design for greater strength
  • Cosmetic improvements to the cover and liner design

Sizing: The Pet-Pilot® MAX is designed for averaged size, small breeds that need a little more "leg and paw room" than in the "Original" Pet-Pilot®.
The MAX dimensions are approximately .. 16" x 13" .. vs .. 14" x 9" for the "Original" Pet-Pilot®.

Main Features: Strength ... Stability ... a large variety of available colors ... and "Best in Class" weight support are the main features of this dog bicycle pet carrier first released in March, 2018. With these features and many more ... this new Bike Basket for small dogs and pets is the safest and most feature rich pet bicycle carrier available on the market!

Air Vent?? The Pet Pilot® MAX bike 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 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!
