Brand : Riese and Muller

The Packster 40.

Small frame - big ideas.

The Packster 40 holds more than it promises: At 2.23 metres, it is only slightly longer than a conventional bike, despite its large cargo area. And that has a threefold impact: It is easily stored, weighs less than 30 kg and is surprisingly agile.

The Packster 40 is extremely practical, offering an optional child seat that can easily be folded down into the footwell of the box, creating a sizable cargo area in an instant. The Packster 40 is a compact yet giant hero of day-to-day life.

    Professional Opinion

    RIESE AND MULLER PACKSTER 40 VARIO DETAILS


    Safe child transport

    Keeping an eye on the most important thing.

    The optional child seat allows you to convert the Packster 40's cargo surface into a comfortable seating area for your child. A padded 5-point belt provides a high degree of safety and you'll never lose sight of your most valuable cargo thanks to the upright seating position facing the rider. The seat cushion of the child seat can easily be folded into its footwell, creating a cargo surface in the blink of an eye. And the seat cushion is stowed safe and dry. The child seat is only available in combination with the Carry System.

    Flexible load transport

    Sets the bar high. Also in width.

    Do you need to take more on your trip than you thought? Is the barbecue party in the forest bigger than expected? No need to fret, because the large cargo surface and permitted overall weight of 160 kg mean greater freedom and loads of spontaneity. With the optional box you can remove or fold down the wooden side walls to transport wide loads. And if you need to leave something important in the Packster 40, an optional lockable glove box provides extra storage space.

     

     

     

    Adjustable seating position

    The right size for everyone.

    The height-adjustable stem and saddle allow you to adjust the Packster 40's seating position to different body heights in the blink of an eye. This ensures that the Packster 40 can easily be ridden by almost any member of your family or circle of friends and a quick change of rider is possible at any time.

     

     

     

     

     

    Low weight and compact size

    Genuinely compact class.

    The Packster 40 offers as much cargo surface as possible in as little space as necessary. With its reduced length, 48 cm-wide cargo surface and its agility, it needs less storage space than other E-Cargo bikes. And at less than 30 kg, it's a real lightweight in its class. Its compact length means it can even be mounted on a car rear-mounted bike rack. To do this you only have to remove the front wheel, so the Packster 40 is only 2 metres long.

     

     

     

    Bosch SmartphoneHub

    Smartphone docking and additional display

    The Bosch Smartphone Hub transforms your smartphone into a display and communication system which combines intelligent navigation, fitness data and much more. It is convenient and reliable to operate using buttons on the handlebar or voice control. Your smartphone is automatically charged during your trip. But it also works without a mobile phone: in that case an integrated display shows key riding data.

     

     

     

     

     


    The Packster 40: Compact. Spacious. Adjustable.

    Motors, batteries and displays – great performance from a single source.

A removable child cover or roll-up tarpaulin are also available as options.

    Frame lock plus optional chain lock

    The permanently fixed Abus Shield frame lock means that your E-Bike is secured in an instant. The optional 130 cm long chain is also latched into the Shield so you can quickly lock your bike to the nearest lamppost. Especially practical: the same key works for the frame lock and the battery lock.

     

     

     

     

    Carrier with MIK system

    Baskets and panniers can be attached to the carrier with just one click using the MIK system from Basil.
