A revolutionary ride.
In 2011, Elian deconstructed and redesigned the classic Dutch ‘cargo bike’ to international acclaim. Traditionally, cargo bikes are built for utility rather than riding fulfillment. It’s a struggle to keep one in a straight line – especially when loaded with cargo. Evaluating every component, especially around the bike’s manoeuvrability. Elian created a central steering hub not dissimilar to one pioneered in motorcycle design. The result? A much more stable, responsive ride. Far less jumpy and far more enjoyable both for the passengers and the cyclist.
A complete Cargobike includes a custom made frame, the steering system, the load plate, a custom made stem, a front and rear disk brake, the Rohloff 14 speed gearing and all other “small” parts required to get the bike rideable
