Benno Boost E 10D Speed in Anthracite shown above.
What happens when a successful bicycle designer with a contrarian streak is inspired to make a useful bicycle? When that bicycle designer is Benno Baenziger you get a whole new category of bike he calls the e-tility bike.
Start with tires you won't find on any other bike: 24" balloon and extra-wide, for comfort, traction and performance. Smaller wheels offer a foundation that brings you closer to the ground for stability and convenience, and also offer quickness and fun when paired with the Bosch Performance Speed motor.
Next add riser handlebars, a wide saddle and grips designed for how you really want to ride - in comfort.
And did we mention...the whole package looks awesome. Benno's design sense is second to none, and here he brings it all home in a package that is useful and sporty, but also really cool! No longer does one have to choose between looks and utility, Benno brings both to the table: form and function paired in a uniquely attractive package.
Take for instance the plug-and-play Yepp seat compatibility for carrying your child easily and safely. Later, your child can ride on the back and hold onto optional high rails. A host of Benno brand accessories – front cargo tray with optional bag, plus panniers for the included rear utility rack–expand the utility of your bike as your needs evolve over time.
Bicycle designer Benno Baenziger set out to build a bicycle that would "inspire people to use their bike more often and incorporate cycling into everyday life." One test ride on the Benno Boost, and we think you'll agree that Mr. Baenziger has succeeded.
