The Packster.
Take everything with you. On your Packster and in life.

The future starts now. Right in front your door, in the garage, next to the car – with the Packster. Its minimalistic design already suggests where the journey is heading. Your car isn’t the only one with a boot anymore. Great variability and tremendous spaciousness, with two different loading lengths, are promised by the Packster’s smart loading concept: Children, groceries, tools, goods for delivery – with the appropriate accessories for securing your load and protecting it against weather conditions, you can haul anything you want. The optional dual battery featuring a 1,000 Wh energy reserve will take you twice as far with a single charge. Its wide tires will never let you down on along any path, no matter how muddy things get. The future belongs to the Packster. And with the Packster, it belongs to you.

The Packster is available in two models and two lengths:

  • Packster Touring was designed for sporty riding and uses the  proven technology of the dynamic Shimano Deore XT 10-speed derailleur gear with high effectiveness.
  • Charger Nuvinci features the comfortable, continuous NuVinci hub gear and Gates belt drive, ensuring you are always on the move in the perfect gear. The gears are also virtually maintenance- and wear-free.  Choose this option to be able to shift to any gear at any time and to avoid the maintenance and repair/replacement requirements found with a standard chain, derailluer and cassette configuration.  The Nuvinci Hub has a wider gear range than the Packster Touring.  Read more about the Nuvinci hub system here.
  • Loading Length: you can choose the standard 60 cm loading length here, or if you need more room, choose the Packster 80 with 80 cm loading length.

Riese & Müller Packster Review:

Riese & Müller Packster Long Term Review:

The Bosch system

Reliable, performance-oriented and innovative – these are the standards to which R&M holds their E-Bikes, as well as all components and especially the drive system. That's why all Riese & Müller E-Bikes are equipped with the industry-leading Bosch drive system.

Bosch Drive Unit

 

Bosch Performance CX motor

The Performance CX is the most powerful Bosch E-Bike motor ever – with pedal assistance of up to 300%, a maximum torque of 75 Nm, very sporty start-up characteristics and pedalling rate assistance up to 120 rpm. With “Direct Flow” you have a powerful push on the back wheel from speeds of just 20 rpm. Whether it be uphill or on the flat, this acceleration will inspire you. Another highlight in the new Performance CX motor is the eMTB mode, which replaces the previous Sport mode (this is displayed as Sport mode on the Intuvia Display). Here, the progressive motor assistance automatically adapts to the individual riding style regardless of pedal pressure. This ensures optimum assistance at all times, which really pays off on climbs.

Bosch Power Pak 500

Bosch Powerpack 500

With a capacity of 13,4 Ah, this premium lithium-ion battery has an energy reserve of 500 Wh and is designed to be mounted on the carrier. With the Bosch Standard charger provided, the 500 Wh carrier battery is fully charged and ready to be used again in just 4.5 hours. Like all Bosch batteries, it can be removed or charged directly on the bike.

Bosch Intuvia Display

Bosch Intuvia Display

The Intuvia Display gives you full control and a perfect overview at all times. It provides information about battery status, range, daily mileage, total mileage, ride time, current motor power, time, speed and average speed – clearly legible in any level of sunlight. On our automatic E-Bike models, the automatic version of the display also offers an option for controlling the pedal frequency. A USB interface allows MP3 players and mobile phones to be charged while riding too. It is operated via a remote control conveniently mounted on the handlebar grip.

 

Twice the range. Twice the riding pleasure.

Riese & Müller is doubling the range of its E-Bikes with DualBattery technology – in other words, by adding a second battery. This increases battery capacity to an incredible 1,000 Wh. This means your Packster 80 will never let you down when you have to tackle long trips while fully loaded or when you have to deliver lots of items without taking a break to recharge. The second battery is mounted beneath the loading surface in order to attain a low centre of gravity, which has a positive impact on the riding characteristics.

Does not bend to any challenge.

The frame has extremely high rigidity values. The less bendy the frame, the more direct the transfer of force, and the E-Bike tends to jitter significantly less. Coupled with the low cargo centre of gravity, the Packster's superior riding characteristics are clearly noticeable.

Suitable for younger generations too.

The most valuable cargo anyone can carry is children. Their safety comes first. The child seat with two 5-point belts for two children up to around eight years old and side protection thanks to the sturdy side walls offer safety in urban traffic.

From warehouse to delivery.

You can basically transport anything on the Packster 80's cargo surface. Its robust interior is ideal for permanent use as a professional vehicle. The cargo surface and the box of the Packster 80 have been designed for Systainer boxes of the standard 60 cm x 40 cm Euro-pallet size (example manufacturer: UTZ Rako or Tanos). Two Systainer boxes can be accommodated in the cargo space, which is equivalent to four crates of beer.


A bright future.

Always ride with excellent road illumination thanks to high-performance LED headlamps from busch+müller or Supernova on the HS models. They are easily operated via the Bosch display, while the energy is supplied via the battery.

None

The fastest route to a standstill.

The hydraulic disk brakes from Tektro deliver maximum performance, no matter what the weather. The large brake disks allow the braking effect to be optimally applied as needed. They don’t produce rim wear and impress with their consistent braking performance.


Steal success from thieves.

Park your Packster 80 wherever you want. Only you can take it away. The standard frame lock clicks shut simultaneously with the battery lock, so you only need one key for your E-Bike. We recommend the optional combination of a simultaneously locking ABUS Bordo as a second lock and a bottle cage plus water bottle.

Options:

To go along with your Packster 80, the optional accessories provide the ideal solution for your transport plans. In the basic version the cargo surface is bare, making the Packster 80 as customisable as possible.

Boards

The boards are the most minimalist option available for the Packster, with weather-resistant wooden boards in the front, bottom and rear. Here, your transport tasks will know no limits: whether you wish to strap on a large bag, stack some crates of drinks or secure anything else your heart desires.

Box

For transport tasks of all kinds, the coated wooden box is the ideal solution whether for private or commercial use. In the latter case, you can also attach advertising logos to the side of the box. In order to accommodate and lash on wider loads, the inserted side walls can be easily removed. The box can be combined with a tarpaulin.

Child Seat

Right at the front – children love it. On the Packster 80's cargo surface, the comfortable child seat offers more than enough space for two children up to around eight years old. Padded 5-point belts ensure safety. The seats can be combined with the box.

Tarpaulin

uitable for the box, a tarpaulin made of waterproof Cordura protects your cargo from all weathers.

Child Cover

The Cordura child cover quickly and easily turns your Packster 80 equipped with the box and child seat into an all-weather vehicle. So rain, cold, draughts, sunshine or even stones thrown up from the road cannot harm your precious little ones.

Baby Seat Mount

On the Packster 80, even the smallest passengers can travel along safely. Baby seats can be secured to this frame so that mum or dad can always have their eye on them. The baby seat mount is only available in combination with the box.

 

Carrier

If the front storage space is not enough, there is always the optional carrier. It is ideal for attaching panniers, making it perfect for longer bike trips too. Other accessories can be attached with just one click thanks to the "snapit" system from racktime.

Petrol in the blood. Current in the tank.

Ultra-modern Bosch lithium ion batteries with a 500 Wh energy reserve provide the power for our E-Bikes. The battery capacity of 1,000 Wh is achieved by means of their dual battery technology, which makes use of a second battery. This technology doubles the range, which, however, depends on numerous factors, such as the pedal assistance level set, the pace or the inclination of the route. The integrated range calculator provides more detailed information. The batteries are charged directly on the E-Bike or, once removed, at any standard wall socket. In a partially discharged state, they can be recharged without any “memory effect”. The lifespan is 800 – 1,000 charging cycles.
