Riese & Muller Packster

The Packster.
Take everything with you. On your Packster and in life.

The future starts now. Right in front your door, in the garage, next to the car – with the Packster. Its minimalist design already suggests where the journey is heading. Your car isn’t the only one with a boot anymore. Great variability and tremendous spaciousness, with two different loading lengths, are promised by the Packster’s smart loading concept: Children, groceries, tools, goods for delivery – with the appropriate accessories for securing your load and protecting it against weather conditions, you can haul anything you want. The optional dual battery featuring a 1,000 Wh energy reserve will take you twice as far with a single charge. Its wide tires will never let you down on along any path, no matter how muddy things get. The future belongs to the Packster. And with the Packster, it belongs to you.

Model Selection


Twice the range. Twice the riding pleasure.

Riese & Müller is doubling the range of its E-Bikes with DualBattery technology – in other words, by adding a second battery. This increases capacity to an incredible 1,000 Wh. Besides being able to go twice as far on long trips, you no longer have to worry about your range in your day-to-day riding either. The second battery is mounted behind the cargo surface in order to keep the bike’s centre of gravity low and to maintain the excellent riding behaviour. This is why the DualBattery version is only available in combination with the box or the Carry System.

Does not bend to any challenge.

The frame has extremely high rigidity values. The less bendy the frame, the more direct the transfer of force, and the E-Bike tends to jitter significantly less. Coupled with the low cargo centre of gravity, the Packster 40’s superior riding characteristics are clearly noticeable.

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 66 lbs, 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 6’5″ long.

Grows with its tasks.

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.

Pack twice as much.

If the front storage space is not enough, there is always the optional carrier. It is ideal for attaching panniers, making it perfect for longer bike trips too. Other accessories can be attached with just one click thanks to the “snapit” system from racktime. The carrier is fitted as standard on the HS models.

Riese & Muller Packster lights

A bright future.

Ride with excellent road illumination at all times with the high-performance Avy LED headlamps from Busch & Müller (Packster 40 city), E3 from Supernova (Packster 40 touring and nuvinci) or the IQ-X E headlamps from Busch & Müller on the HS models. They are operated via the Bosch Display, while the energy is supplied via the battery. The HS models feature permanent lighting.

Riese & Muller Packster hydraulic disc brakes

The fastest route to a standstill.

The hydraulic disc brakes from Tektro deliver maximum performance, no matter what the weather. The large brake discs allow the braking effect to be optimally applied as needed. They don’t produce rim wear and impress with their consistent braking performance.

Riese & Muller Packster lock

Steal success from thieves.

Park your Packster 40 wherever you want. Only you can take it away. The standard frame lock clicks shut simultaneously with the battery lock, so you only need one key for your E-Bike. We recommend the optional combination of a simultaneously locking ABUS Bordo as a second lock and a bottle cage plus water bottle.

Transport: good.

To go along with your Packster, the optional accessories provide the ideal solution for your transport plans.

Riese & Muller Packster basis baord

Riese & Muller Packster Basis-Boards

The Basis-Boards are the most minimalist option available to the Packster, with weather-resistant wooden boards in the front, bottom and rear. Here, your transport tasks will know no limits: whether you wish to attach the straps of a large bag, stacks of drink crates or anything else your heart desires.

Riese & Muller Packster basis box

Riese & Muller Packster Basis-Box

For transport tasks of all kinds, the Basis-Box made of coated wood is the ideal solution. The Basis-Box of the short Packster 60 can accommodate a stacking box of the standard 60×40 size and in front of it there is even an additional 20 cm for further loads. The long Packster 80 version has space for two such boxes. This equates the surface area of four beer crates. This makes it perfectly suited for large transport tasks, whether private or business-related. In the latter case, you can also attach advertising logos to the side of the box. In order to accommodate and lash on wider loads, the inserted side walls can be easily removed. The Basis-Box can be combined with a tarpaulin and is available for the Packster 60 and 80 versions.

Riese & Muller Packster kids box

Riese & Muller Packster Kids-Box

Right at the front – children love it. With the double child seat in the Kids-Box, your children up to the age of 6 can travel safely with you. The Kids-Box is more or less a Basis-Box equipped with a backrest, seat cushions and two seatbelts. And when children come for a ride, it can be closed off with the optional tarpaulin. The Kids-Box is available for the Packster 60 and 80 versions.

Riese & Muller Packster child cover

Riese & Muller Packster Child cover

A few quick manual maneuvers and the Cordura child cover turns your Packster 60 equipped with the Kids-Box into an all-weather vehicle. So rain, cold, droughts, sunshine or even stones thrown up from the road cannot harm your precious little ones.

Riese & Muller Packster tarpaulin

Riese & Muller Packster Tarpaulin

Suitable for the boxes, a tarpaulin made of waterproof Cordura protects your cargo from all weathers. It is available for the Packster 60 and 80 versions.

Riese & Muller Packster carrier

Riese & Muller Packster Carrier

Sometimes, the storage room at the front isn’t enough, especially if you’ve got the kids with you too. The carrier is ideal for attaching panniers, using the snapit system from racktime, making it perfect for longer bike trips too. On the HS versions, it is part of the standard equipment.

Riese & Muller Packster Models


Riese & Muller uses a modern Just in Time inventory strategy. Every bike is built to order in their Germany factory.

We have worked with R&M and several logistics partners to offer our customers several ordering options.

Twice a month we receive a container from Riese & Muller shipped via Sea Freight. If preferred, you have the option of having your bike shipped individually to you, arriving to us one week after it is built, for $300. **please note that cargo bikes are excluded from expedited shipping.

If you’d like a bike shipped to your home it will have to go to our shop first for us to fully build and test the bike. Please select freight when checking out.

If you have any questions about this process please feel free to contact us or if you are interested in checking out the Riese & Muller bikes that we have available for immediate shipment, please check out our Riese & Muller Stock section.
