Riese & Muller Packster Vario
The Riese & Muller Packster Vario boasts some impressive stats for an eCargo bike: weighing in at under 30kg and measuring 2.23 meters long, this really is a versatile and compact eBike.
The Vario continuous transmission system simplifies your ride, creating one long gear instead of constantly needing to worry about what gear you are in.
Equipped with a 48cm wide cargo surface transporting any weight of cargo need not be an issue, especially considering the top of the range Bosch motor powering you.
The Vario N380 continuous gearing hub is perfectly suited to electric cargo bikes. A series of multiple bearings create the feeling of one long gear. This enables you to ride with a steady load and in an anticipatory style, without getting out of breath due to an excessively high cadence.
Stopping you and your cargo are Tektro hydraulic disc brakes. These brakes are used on high spec downhill eMTB's, ensuring maximum safety for the added weight of the bike.
Superb Supernova E3 lights run off the battery. They emit 205 lumens providing a bright scope of the road, without dazzling other road users.
Suntour XCM32 suspension soaks up the bumps, adding a great degree of comfort to the ride.

Bosch Performance CX System
Powering the Packster is Bosch’s top of the range Performance CX motor. Whether you’re carrying you’re child in the optional child seat, or a fragile delivery to a customer, the Bosch system will ensure a smooth, powerful and safe journey.
Providing the range for your eCargo bike is the Bosch battery. The Packster is fitted with a 500Wh Bosch PowerPack, or for super long distance rides you can upgrade to the DualBattery Technology provides a monstrous 1000Wh of juice. Meaning no ride will ever be cancelled due to lack of range!
To keep the centre of gravity low, the DualBattery version is only available with the box or Carry System.
