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.
The Packster 40 is a compact front loader that magically manages to minimize compromises on carrying capacity.
Many people's first experience of a front loader cargo bike is that functionality is inhibited by rideability. Due to some amazing engineering, this is simply not the case with the Packster.
First of all, it is uniquely easy to get a foot over the Packster 40- even when loaded - thanks to a low top tube design.
Comfortable & Adjustable
A suspension seatpost on all Packster models will cushion your ride. A quick release, telescoping stem allows for a broad range of handlebar heights and ensures comfort for all sizes of riders.
Cargo Haulers Rejoice!
For the cargo hauler: The Packster 40 has multiple box configurations that will haul as much as it's larger siblings.
Family Cyclists...Buckle Up!
The Packster 40 presents a perfect one child solution with a comfortable, elegantly designed child seat up front. Another child seat can be attached to the rear rack. Add extra cargo room around the box with optional Ortlieb panniers.
Super Tourers...Start Packing!
For the cycle tourer: The Packster 40 can be the ultimate adventure bike with room for carrying up to 6 Ortlieb panniers plus additional room in the front cargo bay
