GERMANY: Winora, the German electric bike company, presents its latest offering in this segment with the innovative FUB cargo e-bikes, which are poised to challenge traditional modes of transportation.
Cargo bikes have undergone a remarkable transformation, evolving to carry various types of cargo, including passengers.
Electric bicycles have become increasingly capable, with manufacturers now claiming that these bikes can replace cars and even SUVs.
The FUB, short for “Family Utility Bike,” is available in two versions: the FUB 2W and the FUB 3W. Both models feature a robust steel frame that provides durability and stability.
The robust Bosch Cargo Line electric motor and Bosch PowerPack 500 battery are the heart of these e-bikes. For extended range, users can add batteries to suit their needs.
As an impressive feature, the FUB bikes can seamlessly integrate the powertrain with a Shimano hub-gear transmission.
Riders can effortlessly switch gears using a twist grip, allowing for a smooth and efficient pedal-assisted experience alongside the Bosch powertrain.
The braking system on both models is hydraulic, with the FUB 2W equipped with Magura brakes, while the FUB 3W boasts Zoom hydro disc brakes.
The FUB 2W can accommodate up to two children and offers ample space for carrying groceries and other essentials.
On the other hand, the FUB 3W provides even more cargo capacity, capable of carrying up to four children.
Additionally, it features a built-in luggage rack at the rear. Overall, the FUB 3W can transport an impressive load of up to 250 kilograms, including passengers and luggage.
Winora understands the importance of affordability, and the company has positioned the FUB cargo e-bikes at a relatively reasonable price point.
The FUB 2W is priced at 5,299 Euros (approximately USD 5,690), while the FUB 3W carries a slightly higher price tag of 5,699 Euros (around USD 6,119).
Colour options include black and blue for the FUB 2W and black and anthracite/grey for the FUB 3W.
The introduction of FUB cargo e-bikes demonstrates the growth potential of electric bicycles as practical alternatives to conventional vehicles.
Winora’s commitment to providing versatile and capable transportation solutions shines through in the design and specifications of the FUB models.
As the popularity of cargo bikes continues to rise, these innovative e-bikes may change how we approach daily commutes and family outings.
