Benno Boost

Features

  • Utility Bike with Curb Appeal: Especially useful bikes have often been big and heavy. The Benno Boost takes a new tack, bringing fantastic utility in a nimble, fun and stylish package.
  • Superlative Ride Characteristics: The Benno Boost rides like a dream - comfortable, upright, and quick - thanks in part to unique 24" balloon tires, a sturdy aluminum frame, and a slick cruiser handlebar.
  • Performance Drive: The Bosch Performance Line middle motor delivers not just effortless and smooth pedal assist but best-in-class reliability.
  • Lights, Rack, Fenders, Action! The Benno Boost E comes standard with front and rear Supernova lighting (not pictured above), sturdy alloy fenders, and a high-load rear cargo rack designed for life's adventures.
  • Options Abound: A capacious front rack will expand your utility options, as will custom Benno brand bags for both the front and rear rack. A sturdy adapter enables the Boost's rear rack to fit a single Yepp child seat.
  • The New Wheel True Warranty™: Benno's warranty backed by The New Wheel's professional service department. Includes 5 year frame coverage, 2 years for electronics, and 1 year for all other components.

Our Take

What happens when a successful bicycle designer with a contrarian streak is inspired to make a useful bicycle?

First, you get a bicycle with tires unlike most other bikes: 24" balloon tires with an extra wide profile. Smaller wheels offer a foundation that is stable, quick and fun while turbo-charging the torque of the Bosch Performance Line motor.

Second, you get handlebars, saddles and grips designed for the way people like to ride - in comfort.

And did we mention...the whole package looks awesome. Benno's design sense is second to none - but the Boost's attractiveness is enhanced by it's innate usefulness.

Take for instance the plug-and-play Yepp seat compatibility for carrying 1 kid easily and safely. Or the host of Benno brand accessories - like a front rack, and bags for the front and rear, that allow you to expand the utility of your bike as your needs evolve.

Finally, you get a pedal assist system, but not just any system: you have a Bosch middle motor that can take anyone up anything with practically any load. Now that's useful.

Bicycle designer Benno Baenziger set out to build a bicycle that would "inspire people to use their bike more often and incorporate cycling into their everyday life." One test ride on the Benno Boost, and it's clear Mr. Baenziger has succeeded.
