In this new video from Riese & Müller, developer Dominik Mahr shows us some of the features of the new Packster 70.
The latest offering from the firm, the Packster 70, is available in Touring, Vario (with hub gears) and Automatic versions.
The bike makes use of the fourth generation Cargo Line Cruise, the 25km/h version of Bosch’s high power cargo motor.
Mahr first highlights some of the bike’s safety features, such as the shock-absorbing box with its deep seating position and five-point seatbelts for all three of the child seats.
There are a few other tweaks on the bike’s predecessors as well.
Integrating the box with the front wheel provides another 10cm of loading space compared to the Packster 60.
Mahr also claims that the design of the kickstand means that it can be used with less physical effort than any other on the market. We can’t really test that claim, but it certainly looks pretty easy.
In terms of clambering on and off – and in and out – of the bike, the top tube has been lowered slightly for an easier step through and there’s also a nifty little step so the kids can climb in.
There’s a rain cover too, which can be set up slightly differently for summer and winter - the former offering a bit more ventilation.
The Packster 70 comes in three colours and prices start at £5,259.
