With or Without Electric Assistance?
Imagine: a fully loaded box and still cycle with great ease! Without any afford you can transport your children from home to school, work, shops, playing grounds and then return back home. Also a great alternative if grandma/pa want to take the children for a spin. Many parents chose this concept instead of a car and are now living the green life themselves.
The revolution of the Babboe Electric Cargo Bike
In 2008 we received our first request from parents for an electric Cargo Bike. We worked with experts in electric pedal assistance, and together we crafted the first electric cargo bike. Babboe was amazed after experiencing the advantages of an electric cargo bike. Babboe immediately decided to implement an electric motor in every version of Babboe Cargo Bike. Within a year of testing on quality, safety and still being affordable for and with parents and children, we successfully launched our first electric Babboe Cargo Bike!

Electric three-wheel cargo bike: Babboe Big-E
Babboe used a 36V/250W maintenance free electric motor in the first sold electric Cargo Bike in 2009. The engine is nicely and near invisible mounted on the rear wheel axis. After a couple of pedalling movements, the engine will start automatic and assist the driver with a constant power. A turbo button is mounted on the steering wheel to give a temporary boost, for example if you approach a hill. The battery indicator is located on the same spot as the turbo button and displays the battery life. The motor is fitted right below the rear carrier. The battery range is approximately 25 miles*. After use you can easily disconnect the battery and recharge it in your own house, within 4 hours the battery is fully charged.
Electric two-wheel cargo bike: Babboe City-E
This modern type of cargo bike has been improved and now is even more modern! The Babboe City-E was introduced in September 2011 with a range of 25 to 35 miles*. This fast two-wheel based bike is equipped with a 36V/250W maintenance free electric motor. Three different gears will help you get to your desired speed and the automatic stop function will kick in when you brake or stop cycling. A great feature is the “walking pace”-button, when continuously pressed the bike will move at the speed of 3.5miles per hour. The different gears, buttons and indicators about the battery are located on the steering wheel. The lightweight Lithium-Ion battery is placed underneath the bench inside the box, which can easily be removed and plugged in at home to charge it within 4 hours.
Modern electric three-wheel cargo bike: Babboe Curve-E
After the success of the Babboe City, Babboe decided to equip a new tricycle with the modern looking beech wood. After months of research, testing and developement, The Babboe Curve Cargo Bike was ready for production. With a couple of more improvements, especially in safety because of the higher box and soft round corners, this cargo bike became of great value. The Babboe Curve is equipped with extra thick Schwalbe tyres, which improve the comfort. Even for the little toddlers there is a Maxi-Cosi carrier for safe transport inside the box. The Babboe Curve is considered chic with the colour combination anthracite grey – cognac together with the sturdy coated wooden box.
* The range may differ depending on the load of the cargo bike, tire pressure, the slope of the surface and the effort of the cyclist.
