Whether you’re a ‘last mile’ courier, a brewery, a rock band or you simply don’t travel light the Cargo can take bulky and heavy loads through the urban environment with ease. It features the unique innovation of a roller shutter quick release spring loaded door to the load compartment allowing couriers or delivery people to ensure that their cargo is completely secure in the all aluminium box. The Shimano Steps Edrive system and fully automatic gear system make it unbelievably easy to ride – even for the novice.
PLEASE NOTE – As of April 2017, this bike will be sold with the Shimano Steps Mid drive electric propulsion system installed as standard, this includes fully automatic Di2 gear shifting and the Alfine 8 speed hub gear unit. The battery is the Shimano 500Wh unit and can be mounted on a rear rack or in the frame. The automatic gears operate just like an automatic car, makign it incredibly easy to ride – even for novices who have never used a bike with gears. The price has been adjusted accordingly to include the additional cost of this class leading motor system.
The Maxi Cargo is wider and longer than the standard ‘Cargo’. Its 1.25m long and 95cm wide cargo box allow it to still legally ride in cycle lanes. Like its baby brother the Cargo it is designed to transport bulky and heavy loads through the urban environment with ease. It features the unique innovation of a roller shutter quick release spring loaded door to the load compartment allowing couriers or delivery people to ensure that their cargo is completely secure in the all aluminium box.
The Cargo and Maxi Cargo were designed with the novice rider in mind, its stability and ease of riding make it suitable for novice and not so powerful rider to quickly build up confidence in seeing this as something that they can ride in place of a small van. The Maxi Cargo then is very suitable for local councils, university campuses, postal services and delivery couriers.
Like the Boxer Cargo, the Maxi Cargo s is classed as a ‘pedelec’ electric bike and hence does not require any licencing, tax or annual inspection in order to be ridden.
The particular model in these images has been made as a multi-purpose service trike. It has a 100 litre water tank with 3m long watering wand and hose powered by an electric pump that runs off the main traction battery. This trike is intended for use by a parks department who will water hanging baskets and street flower beds.
Above the removable tank is a tray, in this case the tray will be used to hold trays of potted flowers and tools.
The Cargo also features Tektro’s poweful hydraulic disc brakes which include a very firm handbrake, something that is essential for safely parking such a big trike.
NOTE – images show Maxi Cargo with 12V safety light set fitted which is an optional extra and is not included in the basic price.
