The Convercycle Multi City E-Bike

City Bike + Cargo Bike in one. The first Convercycle eBike of its kind defines a completely new category of bikes! In its folded position its compact size is no different to a common bike. Therefore it is easy to ride, park and lock at your destination. With a simple lifting move the rear wheel swings out under the basket, creating space for daily shopping, sports equipment or child seats. Its volume offers space for two bigger crates of water. It’s simply two in one.

The idea

To renounce the car in a city isn‘t that hard in everyday life. Traffic jam, few parking lots and air pollution are good reasons for cycling. However, if there are bigger objects to be transported one easily jumps to the car. Common cargo bikes are usually a solution but they are tricky to handle due to their size. Steering gets hard when the weight is located on the front wheel. The bike‘s size makes it impossible to secure in bicycle racks, transport on a train or take inside a lift. For these reasons, many people find them not suitable for daily use. The two conditions of the Convercycle eBike make it adaptable, flexible and spontaneous for different fields of application. This is also a plus compared to a trailer. With different systemic add-ons like a lockable box, the Convercycle adapts to the needs of the driver.

The possibility for you to change the way you cycle!
