Riese & Muller Packster 40 Cargo eBike (2020)

Be the first to review this product

The Packster 40 holds more than it promises: At 2.23 metres, it is only slightly longer than a conventional bike, despite its large cargo area. And that has a threefold impact: It is easily stored, weighs less than 30 kg and is surprisingly agile. The Packster 40 is extremely practical, offering an optional child seat that can easily be folded down into the footwell of the box, creating a sizable cargo area in an instant. The Packster 40 is a compact yet giant hero of day-to-day life.

The Packster 40.
Small frame - big ideas.

The Packster 40 holds more than it promises: At 2.23 metres, it is only slightly longer than a conventional bike, despite its large cargo area. And that has a threefold impact: It is easily stored, weighs less than 30 kg and is surprisingly agile. The Packster 40 is extremely practical, offering an optional child seat that can easily be folded down into the footwell of the box, creating a sizable cargo area in an instant. The Packster 40 is a compact yet giant hero of day-to-day life.

The Packster 40 is available in two models:

  • Packster Touring was designed for sporty riding and uses the Shimano Deore XT 10-speed derailleur gear with high effectiveness.
  • Packster 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 & Muller Packster 40 Video Review and Ride Test:

 R&M Packster & Load New Child Seats & Accessories Video:

Keeping an eye on the most important thing.

The optional child seat allows you to convert the Packster 40's cargo surface into a comfortable seating area for your child. A padded 5-point belt provides a high degree of safety and you'll never lose sight of your most valuable cargo thanks to the upright seating position facing the rider. The seat cushion of the child seat can easily be folded into its footwell, creating a cargo surface in the blink of an eye. And the seat cushion is stowed safe and dry. The child seat is only available in combination with the Carry System.

 

Sets the bar high. Also in width.

Do you need to take more on your trip than you thought? Is the barbecue party in the forest bigger than expected? No need to fret, because the large cargo surface and permitted overall weight of 160 kg mean greater freedom and loads of spontaneity. With the optional box you can remove or fold down the wooden side walls to transport wide loads. And if you need to leave something important in the Packster 40, an optional lockable glove box provides extra storage space.

The right size for everyone.

The height-adjustable stem and saddle allow you to adjust the Packster 40's seating position to different body heights in the blink of an eye. This ensures that the Packster 40 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. 

 

Genuinely compact class.

The Packster 40 offers as much cargo surface as possible in as little space as necessary. With its reduced length, 48 cm-wide cargo surface and its agility, it needs less storage space than other E-Cargo bikes. And at less than 30 kg, it's a real lightweight in its class. Its compact length means it can even be mounted on a car rear-mounted bike rack. To do this you only have to remove the front wheel, so the Packster 40 is only 2 metres long.

Smartphone docking and additional display

The Bosch Smartphone Hub transforms your smartphone into a display and communication system which combines intelligent navigation, fitness data and much more. It is convenient and reliable to operate using buttons on the handlebar or voice control. Your smartphone is automatically charged during your trip. But it also works without a mobile phone: in that case an integrated display shows key riding data.

R&M Packster Options:

 

Box

Made of coated wood. Space for all your shopping. Side walls can be removed or folded down. Also suitable for four-legged friends.

Carry System

Metal framework with upholstered side walls made of weather-proof and water-tight Cordura material. Protected child seat for a child up to eight years of age. Glove compartment usable as an additional footwell. Optional cover.

Glove box

If you need to leave something important in the Packster 40, an optional practical, lockable glove box offers extra storage space. It is located in the floor of the cargo surface, which folds up half way to open. The glove box is only available in combination with the box or the Carry System.

Tarpaulin

Suitable for the box or the Carry System, a tarpaulin made from waterproof Cordura protects your cargo from all weathers as well as from unwanted glances. (Box and Carry System have different tarpaulins)

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.
