The Pet-Pilot® “MAX” dog bicycle basket was developed to accommodate larger dogs that need more paw room. With each production run, improvements are 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 the best dog bike carrier on the market.

Sizing: The Pet-Pilot MAX is designed for average-sized, small breeds that need a little more “leg and paw room”. The approximate top opening (Interior) dimensions are .. 35cm x 27cm .. (exterior, 40cm x 34cm).
The biggest question for sizing … is will your small pet fit comfortably inside the basket? Please be sure to evaluate the opening size and interior dimensions.
Maximum Weight: The steel mount and support arm, (along with the steel wire frame) when installed properly, will support your pets weight – Guaranteed!
Compatibility: Our mount is compatible with the vast majority of bike models on the market. However, please consider 2 important points before purchasing;
- Some E-Bikes have the electronics mounted in the middle of the handlebars (where it attaches to the goose neck). The basket mount has a 5cm space between the upper clamps, which may not be enough to clear those electronics.
- Handlebar diameter – our mount clamps are adjustable and work with diameters up to 32mm. Some newer, high end, mountain bikes are now using 35mm handlebars.
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 to the mount makes it very convenient (and fast) to disengage the basket from the bike.
