You’re trying to calm three squirrely kids sitting up front, you’re focused on avoiding traffic, pedestrians, and other bicyclists, you’ve got multiple stop lights along your route, and maybe there’s a hill or two on the way. Wouldn’t it be nice, amidst all the chaos, not to have to think about shifting gears? Enter the Riese & Muller Packster 70 Automatic, an electric cargo bike that can carry three kids, and shift for you, too. All you have to do is set up the program with your desired cadence and you’re good to go for the long haul. Whether you’re experienced at shifting gears, or not (like most Americans), this feature is pretty awesome.
The Riese & Muller Packster 70 Automatic comes with the Enviolo automatiq 380 hub. Paired with a Gates belt drive, you’re looking at one of the cleanest, most efficient, most low-maintenance options available. Running on the Bosch Cargo Line Cruise Gen4 motor and 625Wh Bosch PowerTube battery (with an option to upgrade to dual battery), the Packster 70 automatic is perfect for long or short rides where you can focus on taking care of your most precious cargo, or valuable equipment, without having to worry about manually shifting.
