Pourquoi les vélos cargos électriques sont-ils tendance?

Nous sommes heureux que vous le demandiez. Imaginez raccourcir votre temps de trajet du point A au point B, et ce, avec moins d'effort grâce au coup de pouce de l'assistance électrique. Imaginez maintenant faire de l'exercice en même temps. Un vélo électrique cargo fait exactement cela - et plus encore. Comme les autres vélos électriques, un vélo cargo électrique offre une expérience de conduite confortable avec tous les avantages d'un vélo traditionnel, ainsi que l'assistance électrique lorsque vous en avez besoin. Si vos jambes ont besoin d'un peu plus d'aide pour maintenir la cadence ou monter une colline, activez simplement l'assistance électrique et profitez d'un coup de pouce supplémentaire pendant que vous pédalez.

Là où un vélo cargo électrique brille vraiment, c'est sa capacité à transporter beaucoup plus de choses avec vous pendant que vous roulez. Il est polyvalent, pratique, et c'est exactement ce dont vous avez besoin pour déposer les enfants à l'école, partir à l'aventure le week-end et faire les courses, pour n'en nommer que quelques-uns!

Ne vous méprenez pas, un vélo électrique normal est déjà plus efficace qu'un vélo traditionnel pour vous aider à transporter un chargement, mais un vélo cargo électrique va encore plus loin. Il peut transporter davantage, est plus stable et, dans l'ensemble, il facilite grandement votre quotidien.

8 caractéristiques à rechercher lorsque vous magasinez pour un vélo cargo électrique:

1. Racks, Baskets, and Accessories to carry a load

Cargo E-bikes are perfect for exactly what their name suggests: taking stuff with you on the bike.
Momentum’s PAKYAK E+ comes with an integrated front basket with additional bottle bolt locations, and a rear rack to help you carry your essentials. A rear basket, a PAKYAK tote bag, and a PAKYAK pannier bag help you carry everything else you might need, whether you’re off to the shops or off on an adventure. Find out more about the PAKYAK E+’s range of accessories here.

2. A Storage Case for protecting your belongings

But what if you need *more* storage space? We’ve got you (and your belongings) covered.
Momentum’s PAKYAK E+ is equipped with a lockable storage case that can safely carry or store a wide range of items, including groceries, a laptop, an auxiliary battery, and more! And if it rains, no problem. PAKYAK E+’s storage case is totally waterproof.

3. It’s stable and easy to control

When it comes to bikes, a cargo E-bike is one of the sturdiest and most stable options out there. The PAKYAK E+ provides a comfortable ride while keeping you safe on the road. Its 24” by 2.5” wide tires provide better balance, increase comfort and stability, and are fast-rolling on different terrains. Even if a cargo E-bike is bigger than a traditional bike, it’s still easy to control. Hydraulic disc brakes with four pistons and extra thick pads make for swift, safe, and powerful braking.

4. It can reach high speed with minimum effort

Get ready for a great riding experience. Even with a heavy load, a cargo E-bike makes it easy to maintain a steady speed without exhausting your legs. For example, the PAKYAK E+ has a SyncDrive Pro motor that gives you an extra boost to keep your bike cruising. And don’t be concerned whether a cargo E-bike being larger than a normal E-bike will be more difficult to ride —the PAKYAK E+ has a Shimano Nexus Inter-5E rear hub to guarantee smooth shifting.

5. Its battery capacity lets you travel long distances

Not only can a cargo E-bike support you and provide a needed boost while carrying weight, but it can also help you go the extra mile, quite literally. The PAKYAK E+ comes with a 500Wh battery that can boost your pedaling for 35-100 miles (55-160 km) on a single charge, depending on a few factors, including the assist mode, terrain, and weight. Still not enough? You can carry an optional second 500Wh battery in the storage case, doubling your range for errands that last longer than expected.

6. Its battery recharges in just a few hours

When the battery eventually runs out of power, it just takes a quick stop before hopping back on your cargo E-bike. The EnergyPak Lithium-Ion battery comes with a 6 AMP charger, which can fully charge the bike’s battery in less than four hours. If you’re in a hurry, you don’t need to wait until it’s fully charged to start riding again. Did we mention it’s a breeze to charge? Just remove the battery, plug in the power cable, and connect the charger to the battery. That’s it!

7. It has accessories for just about anything you’ll need

As you can tell, electric cargo bikes are all about versatility and they give you countless ways to make the most out of your bike. The PAKYAK E+ has a range of accessories to make your cargo E-bike even more useful and personalized to your needs. Child seat mounts help carry your kids to school, while adding seat pads, footrests, and safety bars make their rides even more comfortable. Need to carry even more cargo on your ride? You can add a rear basket, a PAKYAK tote bag, and a PAKYAK pannier bag to help you bring everything you need on your next adventure.Learn more about PAKYAK E+ accessories.
