The Packster 40. Classy Compact Cargo.

Small frame. Big ideas.  The Riese & Müller Packster 40 cargo electric bike was designed to provide a sizeabe cargo area in a compact and easily manageable cargo package. The cargo area is approx 40cm in length and 48cm wide and, with a wheel base of approx 2.23m, it is not much longer than a standard bicycle. With a 160kg carry capacity so there is plenty of scope for sizeable loads and it is one of our most popular modes for carrying a single child and also favourite pooches.

Like all Riese & Muller ebikes comfort and usability is a priority. The Packster 40 is a very agile ebike to ride, even when fully loaded, and additional features such as a thudbuster suspension seatpost, front suspension and ergonomic grips and saddle offer excellent daily comfort. Riese & Muller's adjustable handlebar allows the seating position of the Packster 40 to be easily adjusted for different rider heights so this is also an ebike that can be shared amongst the family.

Every Packster cargo ebike is equipped with thoughtful and high quality extras such as a wheel lock (with an option to purchase a 130cm chain), and bright Supernova front and rear lights that are conveniently powered by your battery. It also has a wide double kickstand which folds up neatly when on the go and provides a stable platform for cargo when stationary. If you prefer something with a larger cargo are or for two children see the Riese & Muller Packster 60.

Comfort. Power and 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. This Riese & Muller Packster 40 ebike has the 'comfort kit' which offers more classically curved handlebars for a more upright ride position and wider comfort saddle. 

It is powered by the Bosch Performance Line CX motor and it comes standard with a 500Wh battery and the neat and compact Bosch Purion display. 

With the Vario model you also get an ebike that is lower maintenance and very easy to change gears due having the easy-changing Enviolo internal hub gears. It 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.
