Solid steel frame
If you are looking to gear up with two- or three-wheeled functionality, you need a hand-crafted steel frame that has personality. In contrast to aluminium and carbon frames, our steel is a cool and high-tech product.
- Steel is tough! Our frame promises incredible yield strength with a significant level of elasticity. It is one for the keeping.
- The strength of our steel frame allows for a thinner mainframe. TIG welding technoology makes our frame just light – or even lighter – than those made of aluminium. Until recently it was necessary to
- Our steel frame has a considerable load-bearing capacity, making stress fractures less common than in aluminium builds.
- A steel frame, less rigid than aluminium, rides comfortably. This is especially notable during long trips over asphalt.
Our fork, especially designed for cargo bikes, is tough and stable. Through the long fork tubes which practically reach the handlebars, the head tube is barely burdened and thus permits more weight.
The usable loading area is always at least the size of a Euro pallet (1200x800 mm), the supporting surface of the base plate is 1000x755 mm. Various superstructures can be screwed onto this. The superstructures can be up to 1600 mm long. All our superstructures can hold one Euro pallet at least.
We equip our bikes with a high-capacity, 250 Watt eZee geared hub motor, specially developed for cargo bikes. Geared hub motors have the advantage of minimal wearing, high efficiency and long lifespan. In addition to the gas throttle that comes with the bike, our new system has a continuous 5-speed shifter with electric steering assistance that transfers your pedaling energy upon take-off for an easier and quicker start.
The Enviolo N380x gear hub is as easy and smooth as adjusting the volume on your radio, in turn maximizing the rider's experience and performance. The combination of a slim switch handle and a display with an orange-colored bicyclist makes shifting intuitive and easier than ever. It is the perfect gear hub for those who desire a continuous, easier and more comfortable ride, and also for those looking for easier and less restricting solutions to conventional gear-shifting.
- Simpler assemblage and installation
- Continuous shifting without kicks or delays, even during intense pedaling
- A greater gear ratio range than many conventional shifting systems (up to 380%)
- Frictionless, quick to respond, dependable und totally soundless
- Practically maintenance-free
- Ideal for E-Bikes: Lighter shifting leads to more active and engaged shifting for the rider; which in turn means more efficient energy use, a longer range and battery life, and less abrasion on motor and gear components.
The standard battery of the MUSKETIER is 15 Ah (512 kWh), however, the system can also be upgraded to 23 Ah (835 kWh). Furthermore, the rider may choose to employ two batteries simultaneously, allowing for a maximum capacity of 46 Ah. As a general rule we install Samsung or Panasonic cells with a nominal voltage of 37V, or an end-of-charge voltage of 42V.
Two different braking systems are available for the MUSKETIER.
First, the Tektro Twin with 203mm disc pads. This brake set comes with a parking brake, easily locked into place with a lever-switch on the grip.
On the other hand, the MUSKETIER can be fitted with Magura BIG brakes, which boast larger 210mm disc pads for a more muscular clutch. The BIGs lack the convenience of a parking brake switch however, and instead require a velcro strap wrapped around the brake lever when parking on slopes.
The standard tyres of the Musketeer are high-quality Continental tyres for Musketier 24'' x 2.4, with puncture protection and reflector strips. The profile and the optics are clearly robust.. The Continental tyre has a printed reflector strip on the sidewall and thus complies with the StVZO. The tyre is not only very puncture-proof, but the stable carcass also makes it more stable and extremely durable.
Our bike is 99.7cm from measuring one full meter across. We recommend, however, the relatively more long-lived Fatbike gear hubs, which extend total bike width by 8 cm. Even after this augmentation the MUSKETIER squeezes through the bollards of no-drive zones and continues to be low-maintenance.
Lacking its own definition of what comprises a bicycle, German law has orientated itself to the treaty of the Vienne Convention on Road Traffic, according to which 'cycle' means "any vehicle which has at least two wheels and is propelled solely by the muscular energy of the persons on that vehicle, in particular by means of pedals or hand-cranks." This definition includes single- and multiple-lane cargo bikes. In any case, there are two relevant legal restrictions:
Maximum size: Width, one meter for single-lane / two meters for multiple-lane bicycles; Height 2,50m (~8 ft. 2 in.); and Length 4m (~13 ft.) is permissible (see § 63 and § 32 StVZO).
