The Load electric cargo bikes from Riese & Müller have a full suspension frame for comfort and better road holding – unusual in a cargo bike! The tubular frame is very stiff and strong, but it can also split and pack down for transport or storage, and the twin-leg prop stand is very stable. Unlike some cargo bikes, the Load is confident and comfortable at speed, it’s a cargo bike you can happily use for fast commuting every day (and I do!)
The Load comes in two sizes, the Load 60 and the Load 75 – the numbers refer to the length of the cargo area. The 75 can take up to three children or a lot of cargo. There’s also a version of the Load with the new Bosch Smart System electric assist, the Load4.
The Load 60 starts at £6305, and the Load 75 from £6485 – the Riese & Müller website has lots more info and a configurator, or give me a call or send an email and I can work out a complete price for you.
I have both bikes in the shop to try out. Here’s a walk around of a slightly earlier demonstrator (the demo fleet is now all Load4 models):
The Load is also available under the new R&M Rent scheme for businesses – pay £5 per day for 3 months for a brand new Load 75 Rent, then at the end of the period you can either return the bike, or buy it for £6580. The Load 75 Rent model has box, tarpaulin, rear rack, additional chain lock, Enviolo gearing with belt drive, and a double battery.
