Babboe Carve cargo bike

The Babboe Carve owes its name to the patented carve mechanism. The Babboe Carve was launched in May 2017. It’s a cargo bike with beautiful, rounded shapes and a cool look. The Babboe Carve combines the stability of a three-wheel cargo bike with the agility of a two-wheel cargo bike. The ‘carve mechanism’ lets the box tilt with the bike when taking corners, so it feels as if you were riding a two-wheeler. This tilting motion is also known as ‘carving’. A unique cycling experience with excellent road holding! The box seats 2 children. A Maxi-Cosi carrier can be mounted in the Babboe Carve, so the smallest member of your family can come along too.

Babboe Carve

Babboe Carve cargo bikeRiding a Babboe Carve is a unique experience. The box tilts with the bike when taking corners. Despite the two wheels at the front, the cycling experience with the Babboe Carve Mountain is the same as if you were riding a regular bicycle or a two-wheel cargo bike. The steering movement is almost the same as with a regular bicycle or two-wheel cargo bike. This tilting motion is also known as ‘carving’. Engaging the 'carve-lock’ allows you to cycle without a tilting box. Below you will find more information on the carve-lock.

The carve-lock is located on the handlebar side on the left side of the box. Simply slide the small lever to the left to engage the carve-lock.
