The Packster 80. Transport Almost Anything. 

The Ultimate Transporter.  The Riese & Müller Packster 80 cargo electric bike is an incredibly innovative and practical design. It is easily adjustable for most rider heights and the smooth power from the Bosch CX motor and amazing stability and balance means that just about anyone can comfortably ride it. 

It has the largest cargo area of any of the Riese & Muller cargo ebikes and yet still handles with surprising agility and stability thanks to its high quality frame, heavy duty wheels, balloon tires and innovative design. It has a cargo area that is 80cm long and approx. 62cm wide and a 200kg capacity. Each Packster 80 comes equipped with hydraulic disc brakes, balloon puncture resistant tires, 70mm front suspension and additional features such as a thudbuster suspension seatpost to increase comfort and improve handling. 

Every Packster cargo ebike is equipped with thoughtful and high quality extras such as a wheel lock (with an option to add a 130cm chain), and bright integrated Supernova front and rear lights. It also has a wide double kickstand which folds up neatly and provides a stable platform for cargo when stationary. 

Sit up and enjoy the world about as you go about your daily tasks, or head for the bush with your camping gear to escape the urban jungle. A transporter that doesn't forget that getting places can mean fun and adventure.

Comfort. Power and the Option for Internal Gears With Gates Belt Drive. 

Like all Riese & Muller ebikes every bike component and accessory has been carefully considered for durability, performance and comfort. If you prefer a more upright riding position Riese & Muller have introduced the option to add a 'comfort kit'. This offers classically curved handlebars, a longer stem and wider saddle (pictured) at is no extra charge. 

For the Packster series Riese & Muller use the powerful Bosch Performance Line CX motor and it comes standard with a 500Wh battery, although you also have the option to custom order with dual battery if you want the extra distance. There is also the option to upgrade from the standard Purion display to the new Bosch SmartphoneHub display (pictured). 

If you want an ebike that is lower maintenance and very easy to change gears on then have a look at the Vario model. This is equipped with the easy-changing Enviolo internal hub gears and also comes with a Gates carbon belt drive instead of a chain. The belt drive is a tough drive train that offers a near-silent ride and requires little maintenance.

Practical Packster 80 Accessories. For Cargo. For Family. 

For 2020, Riese & Muller have redesigned many of their core accessory items for the Packster series so they offer even more safety and versatility. The child carrying accessories have received the greatest attention with the addition of 5-point seat belts and child seats that can be individually added or removed. The child seats are now height-adjustable and can be reclined for a sleeping child. There is also a child cover now that provides protection from the weather or you can opt for a tarpaulin to cover your cargo area when unattended or when raining. Note: The child carrying accessories are only available if you select the 'Box' option when you configure your Packster 80. 

If you are only interested in carrying cargo and just want a platform, then select the 'Boards' option when configuring your Packster 60. This gives you weatherproof and waterproof plates that you can use to tie down cargo such as large bags, crates, cardboard boxes and more.  Alternatively you can select the 'Box' option which also offers a tarpaulin to cover it. Have a look at the Riese & Muller website for the multiple configurations.
