  • Made for You in Germany: Riese & Müller assembles each bike in their factory in Weiterstadt, Germany to your specifications.

  • Adjustable and Easy To Ride: Low step over top tube differentiates the Packster from other sporty front-loader bikes, and adjustable seat and stem height accommodates all sizes of riders.
  • Sturdy Construction: Box-section aluminum main frame is rigid and responsive.
  • One is good, two even better: All bikes comes standard with the latest 500wh Bosch PowerPack. Want to ride further? Upgrade to the new Bosch Dual Battery System for umatched range & performance.
  • Totally, 100%, Fully Loaded: Packster comes fully loaded with everything you need to ride, including a suspension seatpost, integrated front and rear lights, sturdy metal fenders and fantastic tires.
  • A True Car Replacement: Regular and long front load platform lengths, narrow load platforms or spacious cargo boxes, plus a host of kid carrying options mean you can always haul what you need.
  • Super Duty Kickstand: Many have said it, and we agree: a cargo bike is only as good as its kickstand. The Load's kickstand locks your bike in place for loading and unloading.
  • Narrow Load Platform For Urban Use: Sometimes, the wider footprint of a front loading cargo bike can prevent you from safely navigating the urban landscape. The width of the Packster without a box is the same as a standard bicycle.
  • A Warranty You Can Trust: Riese & Müller's warranty is backed by The New Wheel True Warranty™  and upheld by our professional service department. Includes 5-year frame coverage, 2 years for electronics, and 2 years for all other components (some exceptions apply).

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 ultra narrow, modular Packster and the full suspension Load.

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- 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.


What can the Packster 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 children in a weather proof canopy, available as an option with the Packster.

The Packster is also particularly interesting when it comes to options for carrying stuff. The minimalist Basis Boards provide just enough platform for cargo while keeping the width of the bike as narrow as a conventional bike. Have more stuff to carry? There is an extra large Basis Box, a cover for your cargo and even a rear pannier rack to carry still more stuff.

A Better Front Loader

If you're looking to do more by bike, and you've been holding out for a better front-loader, the time is right to try the Packster.
