The Packster 40. 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.

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.

Smartphone docking and additional display (upgrade)


The Bosch SmartphoneHub transforms your smartphone into a display and communication system, in which all functions are combined: intelligent navigation with live weather, fitness data and much more. It is convenient and reliable to operate using buttons on the handlebar or voice control. Your smartphone is automatically charged during your trip. But it also works without a mobile phone: in that case an integrated display shows key riding data.

Carry System (cargo accessory upgrade)


Thanks to a sturdy metal framework with upholstered side walls made of weather-proof and water-tight Cordura material, your cargo is always well-protected. The child seat offers space for a little passenger up to about eight years of age, while the glove compartment serves to provide additional foot space for them. A removable child cover or roll-up tarpaulin are also available as options.

Box (cargo accessory upgrade)


The box made of coated wood boasts enough space for your weekly shopping. The side walls can be removed or folded down. The box is also ideally suited for four-legged friends.

For the most precious good (cargo accessory upgrade)

Comfort kit (upgrade)


The perfect option for anyone wanting to ride in greater comfort: the classically curved handlebars, the longer stem and wider saddle enable you to sit comfortably in an upright position.

Additional chain 130 cm for lock (upgrade)


The solid Abus chain lock, as well as the Abus Shield frame lock, secures your E-Bike twice over. The 130 cm long chain is latched onto the frame lock and the bike can be quickly attached to the nearest lamppost. The chain thickness of 6 mm ensures a high level of anti-theft protection. Especially practical: Frame lock, chain lock and battery lock all use the same key.

Carrier Packster (upgrade)


One carrier, practically endless possibilities: the MIK system from Basil is based on a solid and stable adapter plate to which countless types of panniers, baskets and bicycle accessories (even a dog basket!) can be clicked quickly, safely and stably. An ever increasing number of fashionable and practical luggage equipment ensures every requirement is met. Accessories can be obtained from your dealer.
