Radkutsche RAPID


Sustainable mobility, pure innovation

A sportive powerhouse - that's our RAPID with its 112 Nm mid-engine.

The RAPID can be build to individual wishes and requirements, making it wonderfully suited for private & commercial use. Families, craftsmen, couriers - there is a suitable build-up and accessories for everyone. Our diverse selection of high quality components, colours and build-ups make every RAPID an one of a kind, local and high-quality built cargo bike.

With a maximum total weight of 200 kg the RAPID is a stable and strong cargo bike, yet also a very manoeuvrable two-wheeled bike that will bring any load safely to its final destination.

"Once you've set off, you're surprised at how easily and dynamically the Rapid can be moved.''

Radkutsche RAPID & Cargo- and Family-box

Cargo- and Family-box

The secure family-box was developed to transport children, and the resistant aluminum frame further protects your little ones. Front and back seats can be built into the bin, seating altogether two children and a babyseat. Produced by Maxi-Cosi, Peg-Pérego and Yepp, these attachments can be attached securely and without problems. Especially interesting is the Peg-Pérego attachment, which is easily mounted with two horizontal metal rods.

Radkutsche RAPID & Messenger-Box


With a 350-liter capacity, this box is the biggest any Long John cargo bike has seen. It offers tons of space for any craftsmen or delivery service.

The lid can be folded up from the side giving you 100% full access. Gas pressure springs keep the lid open so that both hands are free for quick and easy (un)loading. The messenger-box is lockable designed for maximal volume transport.

Radkutsche RAPID & Zarges Box

Zarges Box

The multifunctional Zarges Box is available for your RAPID. You can even lock up your Zarges Box without a key! Two versions exist: one with a completely removable lid, and one which opens and closes on a hinge.
