The Urban Wheelz Cargo was born out of experience and innovation. This Cargo bike had to be better than the rest. Safer, easier to build & maintain, efficient to transport & store, stronger, better brakes & safety belts, more stable and of course easier to ride than the existing cargo bikes in the market
When it comes to the motor and cargo space, the Urban Wheelz Cargo is one of the best available cargo bicycles. The Urban Wheelz Cargo is powered by a strong 36V, 250W Bafang middle motor to ensure a smooth but speedy ride. In addition, the engine provides up to 80Nm of torque to provide the right amount of acceleration when you need it the most. The cargo space of the Urban Wheelz Cargo is designed to be able to transport up to four children. This also means that there is plenty of space to transport groceries or other goods without a problem.
Whenever you want to take your children for a trip, safety of course is one of the biggest concerns. Therefore, we focused on making the cargo box as safe as possible. Cargo bikes tend to have cheap and low quality safety belts. We have invested in high quality and durable belts in order to make sure that your children are securely fastened when you take them for a ride! Additionally, we made sure that the inside of the cargo space has no screws or electronics sticking out, enhancing the safety and aesthetics of the bike.
Braking capabilities are one of the, if not the most important features of any electric bike. Most of the cargo bikes on the market have mechanical brakes with a steel brake cable. This functions well on a regular bicycle but is not efficient enough for a cargo bike, especially if the cargo box is loaded. When using a 3-wheel cargo bike it is extremely important that both front wheels have exactly the same brake pressure, otherwise the cargo bike will tilt left or right severely when using the brakes, this is extremely dangerous. The Urban Wheelz Cargo is equipped with Tektro hydraulic disc brakes including double parking brake. This means that the bike will stop within 5 meters with a total weight of 225kg! Further information regarding the braking can be found below, in the ISO 4210 test results.
The Urban Wheelz Cargo bike has been tested by Extra Energy in Tanna Germany together with 13 other cargo bike brands, the results will be announced at Eurobike 2016 and also published here. Also the bike has been tested by Velotech.de for safety classification. As you can see in the downloads below, the Urban Wheelz Cargo has passed the ISO 4210 requirements regarding brake tests. Even at a total weight of 285 kg the bike stopped in 6,5 meters. Furthermore, the bike stays in a straight line, which is important to know that the bike will behave safely in the case of an emergency stop.
We know that cargo bikes can be very clunky and hard to store. They are mostly stored outside, because they do not fit through any door. Therefore, we came up with our unique storage method for the Urban Wheelz Cargo! First of all the bike is only 76 cm wide, so it fits trough any normal door, than you can easily pick up the back of the bike and tilt it forward, so the nose of the cargo touches the ground. This way you can make the bike take up space vertically instead of horizontally, leaving up a lot free space in garages and storage environments. In total when stored, the bike only takes up 1 m3 of space at a height of 2.06 meters. The bike also comes in a neat transportation box. This box is the biggest colouring picture your children will ever see! A clever and fun way of using packing material!
