Riese & Müller Packster

6,329.00

The Packster is the magna cum laude of front loaders, sporting features and options that keep it at the top of the class. Riese & Müller might not be your first eBike - probably your last though. 

  • A uniquely low step over cockpit, quick adjustable stem/seat height to accommodate any sized rider & for sharing. 
  • An upright comfortable posture for a commanding view, 80cm is very long but responsive and stable, with larger tires, a 50 mm suspension fork and seatpost for city bumps.
  • A wide center stand that's easy to deploy, stable when extended - a critical feature in any cargo bike - and it doesn't scrape when cornering.
  • Custom built to order in Germany for your specifications
  • 40, 60 or 80 cm long cargo bays & kids or cargo boxes
  • Internal gear options include Nuvinci & Belt or Deore
  • Choice of proven, best-in-class Bosch Performance Drives
  • Dual battery option (+969) for unmatched range
  • Range 25-75 mile, 482 (x2 for Dual) watt hour battery
  • Incredible 500lb capacity.

Front loaders rule for family time on the road - having kids up front (rather than in back like many family bikes) means a sense of more security & intimacy,

So the Packster is not the cheapest front-loader - where Riese & Muller stands out from the pack of boxier/bucket front loaders is that the Packster can fit much shorter pilots (but still a stiff frame) - and you can fit up to 4 small kids onboard with the 80cm box.  Or even larger kids/tiny adults other bikes would struggle to fit  The Packster has a comparatively limited turning radius, but a noticeably narrower box that fits through tighter squeezes. 

Another essential upgrade is suspension - with total loaded weights of 350lbs+ on a rigid, potholes and bumps will leave a bad impression on both passengers and pilot.

Integrated Busch & Müller lights front & rear - the front light is smartly on the fork so it tracks into your turns, significant on such a long bike,  Weighs 80lbs
