Small frame - big ideas.

The Packster 40 holds more than it promises: At 2.23 metres, it is only slightly longer than a conventional bike, despite its large cargo area. And that has a threefold impact: It is easily stored, weighs less than 30 kg and is surprisingly agile. The Packster 40 is extremely practical, offering an optional child seat that can easily be folded down into the footwell of the box, creating a sizable cargo area in an instant. The Packster 40 is a compact yet giant hero of day-to-day life. The smart loading concept with 40 cm of loading length ensures a variable and wide-ranging offer in terms of space. The Bosch Performance CX motor and the continuous Enviolo hub gear with Gates belt drive enable you to take on all transport tasks with ease. Generously dimensioned hydraulic Tektro disc brakes ensure superior braking behaviour.

The Bosch system


Reliable, performance-oriented and innovative - these are the standards to which we hold our E-Bikes, as well as all components and especially the drive system. That's why all Riese & Müller E-Bikes are equipped with the industry-leading Bosch drive system.

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.

Sets the bar high. Also in width.


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 and loads of spontaneity. With the optional box you can 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.

The right size for everyone.


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.

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 it can even be mounted on a car rear-mounted bike rack. To do this you only have to remove the front wheel, so the Packster 40 is only 2 metres long.

Carry System


Metal framework with upholstered side walls made of weather-proof and water-tight Cordura material. Protected child seat for a child up to eight years of age. Glove compartment usable as an additional footwell. Optional cover.

Box


Made of coated wood. Space for all your shopping. Side walls can be removed or folded down. Also suitable for four-legged friends.

Twice the range. Twice the riding pleasure.


Riese & Müller is doubling the range of its E-Bikes with DualBattery technology - in other words, by adding a second battery. This increases capacity to an incredible 1,000 Wh. Besides being able to go twice as far on long trips, you no longer have to worry about your range in your day-to-day riding either. The second battery is mounted behind the cargo surface in order to keep the bike's centre of gravity low and to maintain the excellent riding behaviour. This is why the DualBattery version is only available in combination with the box or the Carry System.

Steals success from thieves.


Park your bike wherever you want. Only you can take it away. The permanently fitted Abus Shield frame lock secures your bike in no time at all and the optional 130 cm long chain lock can be used to quickly lock it to the nearest lamppost. Especially practical: frame chains and battery lock close with the same key.

A bright outlook.


At dusk, in the woods or late at night: Supernova’s or Busch & Müller’s LED headlamps provide consistently excellent road illumination whenever you go for a ride. They are supplied with power by the battery. Thus, full lighting power is ensured at all times - whether at high speeds or standing still, for instance when stopping at a traffic light.

Pack twice as much.


If the front storage space is not enough, there is always the optional carrier. It is ideal for attaching panniers, making it perfect for longer bike trips too. Since it is secured directly to the frame, it also benefits from the suspension thanks to Control Technology. On the HS models, the carrier is fitted as standard (not in the USA and Canada).
