The Packster 40. Small frame – big ideas.
The Packster 40 holds more than it promises: it is so compact that, at 2.23 metres, it is only slightly longer than a conventional bike, despite its large cargo surface. And that has a threefold impact: it fits into any bike store, weighs less than 30 kg and is surprisingly agile. It is also practical in that the seat cushion of the optional child seat can easily be folded down into the child’s footwell of the box, creating a cargo surface in an instant. So the Packster 40 is the new small-but-big hero of everyday life.
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 cargo transport
Setting the bar high. In terms of width too.
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 for lots of spontaneity. The optional box lets you 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 seat position
Changing riders made easy.
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.
Lightweight and compact
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 that it can even be mounted on a car rear-mounted bike rack. Simply remove the front wheel, leaving the Packster 40 with a length of around 2 metres.
