The Packster 80.
Brings your cargo to its destination – and gives you your freedom back.

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:

  • 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 Vario  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.

Riese & Müller Packster Long Term Review:

The Bosch system

Reliable, performance-oriented and innovative – these are the standards to which we hold our 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 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 PowerPack 500 frame battery

The powerful lithium-ion battery attached to the frame has an energy reserve of 500 Wh. High reliability and a service life of 800 to 1,000 charging cycles make it a strong companion over hill and dale. It can be charged directly on the E-Bike or removed from the frame in a single step. It takes 4.5 hours to charge from a fully discharged state. So with the PowerPack 500 you are perfectly equipped for any trip.

Optional: Bosch DualBattery 1,000 Wh

For long tours with lots of luggage or routes with considerable height differences, the DualBattery remains the benchmark. Riders using their E-Bike to commute to work also have to charge their bike less often. The load on the two frame batteries is minimised by means of an alternating load in 5 % increments, which significantly increasing the service life. Using the included Bosch Standard charger, both batteries can be charged directly on the bike or at any normal socket once removed. Both can even be charged together on the bike. The charging time for a single battery from a fully discharged state is only 4.5 hours. Charging them on the bike together, both batteries are fully operational again after 9 hours. It is also possible to use just one battery.

Bosch Purion Display

With the Purion, you are guaranteed to never lose sight of things. Its sleek design combines all relevant information on one small, easy-to-read display. While your hands stay firmly on the handlebars, you can navigate through all the functions with your thumb. The Purion is highly efficient, lightweight and trimmed down to the essentials.

 

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 (for instance, Tanos or UTZ Rako). Two Systainer boxes can be accommodated in the cargo space, which is equivalent to four crates of beer. The permitted overall weight is 200 kg.

The right size for everyone.

The height-adjustable stem and saddle allow you to adjust the Packster 80’s seating position to different body heights in the blink of an eye. This ensures that the Packster 80 can easily be ridden by almost any member of your family or circle of friends and a quick change of rider is possible at any time.


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.

Steals success from thieves.

Park your bike wherever you want. Only you can take it away. The permanently fitted Abus Shield frame lock secures your bike in no time at all and the optional 130 cm long chain lock can be used to quickly lock it to the nearest lamppost. Especially practical: frame chains and battery lock close with the same key.

A bright outlook.

At dusk, in the woods or late at night: Supernova’s or Busch & Müller’s LED headlamps provide consistently excellent road illumination whenever you go for a ride. They are supplied with power by the battery. Thus, full lighting power is ensured at all times – whether at high speeds or standing still, for instance when stopping at a traffic light.

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.

R&M Packster 80 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

Weather-resistant wooden boards for flexible transport tasks: It is also possible to securely lash down large bags as well as to stack crates of drinks, cardboard boxes and much more.

Box

Large cargo surface with side walls for secure transport. Space for two standard-sized 60 x 40 cm stacking boxes next to each other. Weather-resistant and sturdy. Can be combined with child seat and tarpaulin. For wider loads, the side walls can be easily removed.

Child Seat

Comfortable seat for two children up to around eight years old. Padded 5-point belts for greater safety. Child cover optional. Equipment available only in combination with box.

Tarpaulin

Suitable 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.

 

It can carry almost anything.

One carrier, practically endless possibilities: the Mik system from Basil is based on a solid and stable adapter plate, to which countless panniers, baskets and bicycle accessories (even a dog basket!) can be clicked quickly, safely and stably. An ever increasing number of fashionable and practical luggage equipment ensures every demand is met. Accessories can be obtained from your dealer.
