Our Take

All Riese & Muller bikes are assembled in their factory in Weisenstadt Germany. This means you can customize virtually everything about the bike, including color, drivetrain, motor and battery capacity. Additionally Riese & Muller cargo bikes have many cargo bike accessories for the Packster.

Front Loaders Come of Age

Front loaders are not new, but we've been waiting for the right one to come along. Low & behold, Riese & Muller offer up 2 amazing front loaders - the full suspension Load, and the narrow, modular Packster.

What's Makes The Load Different?

The Load is instantly recognized by it's full suspension design. Using a sprung rear triangle, the Load suspends both the cargo and the rider to achieve the obvious effects - more comfort and better handling. As well, the Load can be configured with a Bosch mid-motor that will assist up to 28 mph, and if you're considering doing speeds like this on the Load, full suspension will definitely be a plus.

The Load is a cargo bike built for adventure - from the sturdy aluminum truss frame construction to the front and rear suspension, to the durable components, you shouldn't be afraid to take it off the beaten path.

When compared with other front loader cargo bikes, it is uniquely easy to get a foot over the Load - even when loaded - thanks to a low top tube.

Performance Oriented Design

The Load features a stem that allows for instant height and angle adjustment, no tools required. Riders of any size can fit this bike to their body not simply for comfort, but to feel confident and in control.

Full Suspension on the Load is not (just) about bombing downhills - it's about increasing control and comfort as you tackle rough roads in the urban landscape.

What can the Load carry?

Front loaders are the European standard for kid carrying. Why? Because parents like to see what their kids. And, front loader 'bucket' bikes make it easy to enclose kids in a weather proof canopy, available as an option with the Load. The Load even offers a unique way to carry an infant car seat.

The Load has plenty of cargo options as well, including a low sidewall bucket, a high sidewall bucket, tarps to cover your load and even a rear pannier rack if you've got still more to carry.

Doing More By Bike

So, if you're looking an incredibly capable bike that doesn't sacrifice performance or comfort, come try the Load, by Riese and Muller.
