Riese & Muller Packster 60 Cargo E Bike 2020

  • The Riese & Muller Packster 60 cargo electric bike is the middle man in the Packster series and is a perfect family vehicle. An extraordinarily versatile ebike, the Packster 60 retains the nimbleness of the Packster 40 and has an impressive 60cm x ~55cm cargo area and 200kg capacity. It is powered by the strong Bosch CX motor which makes carrying your load so much easier, and it benefits from some upgrades to its accessory range that make things safer and more flexible. Able to carry two children (or an adult) and able to easily switch over to carrying reasonable amounts of cargo, this is an excellent car replacement option. 

  • The Packster 60 is available in two models depending on your gearing preference, and there is also the option to add a dual battery 1,000Wh, a comfort kit, a SmartphoneHub display and multiple accessories.

The Packster 60. A Perfect Car Replacement. 

Nimble. Smart. Versatile.  The Riese & Müller Packster 60 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. Read this great article in E-Mountainbike Magazine on an experiment to see how the Packster 60 compared to a car. 

Its 60cm cargo length and 200kg capacity offers a wide range of uses from family car substitute to a range of business applications and, like all Riese & Muller electric bikes, comfort and usability is a priority. The Packster 60 comes with hydraulic disc brakes, balloon puncture resistant tires, 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 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 are looking for a lager cargo area see the Riese & Muller Packster 80, or the Riese & Muller Packster 40 for something smaller. Alternatively see the Riese & Muller Load 60 if you prefer more comfort and offroad traction.

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 for 2020 Riese & Muller have introduced the option to add a 'comfort kit' which offers classically curved handlebars, a longer stem and wider saddle (pictured). 

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 60 Accessories. For Family. For Cargo For Both.

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 60. 

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 choose the 'Box' option which has a tarpaulin that you can add if you want to cover your load.  Have a look at the Riese & Muller website for the multiple configurations.
