Everything about Babboe cargo bikes
There are no age regulations for a child/children to ride in the cargo bike. Some children no longer like to ride in the cargo bike when they are able to bike on their own.
It is often very practical and fun for children who are able to ride a bike to ride along in the cargo bike.
The load capacity of the box of a two-wheel cargo bike is 80kg and for a three-wheel cargo bike it's 100kg So you can easily take "older" children along in the cargo bike.
Yes, Babboe has the Babboe Max in its assortment, an electrical childcare cargo bike that meets the needs of daycare and after-school facilities, foster parents and large families.
The walk-assist is a function available on all our electric cargo bikes. It allows you to turn on the pedal assistance while not actually biking to move your electric cargo bike while walking, for example to walk from the bike parking to the bike path. As long as you keep the Walk-Assist button pressed in, you will have the assistance.
Our cargo bikes are tested for daily use for transporting children, dogs, or goods. To show how important safety is for Babboe, we've had the cargo bike tested for load capacity and durability by the renowned international test agency SGS and by TÜV. Based on this, instructions for use have been drawn up including the maximum number of children and weight per cargo bike.
The Babboe cargo bikes have been tested by the international test authority TÜV and have the relevant EN 15194 and ISO 421 certifications. That means all our cargo bikes meet the applicable laws and regulations.
Shifting gears while biking differs per bike and per type of gears. The Babboe cargo bikes are equipped with derailleur, hub, or stepless hub shifting systems.
- The electric Babboe cargo bikes are equipped with derailleur gears, this shifting system requires you to keep biking to smoothly shift gears. Never shift gears while standing still and do not pedal backwards either.
- The non-electric models have a hub shifting system which allows you to shift gears while continuing to bike, but you can also briefly stop pedaling while shifting gears.
- The Babboe Mountain cargo bikes have a stepless hub shifting system which means you can continue pedaling while shifting gears.
Babboe City, Mini, Curve and Carve
There's a special Maxi-Cosi carrier for the Babboe City, Babboe Mini, Babboe Curve, and Babboe Carve. The Maxi-Cosi carrier is suitable for practically any type of Maxi-Cosi. The carrier has good suspension and is suitable for practically any type of Maxi-Cosi. When the Maxi-Cosi carrier is installed in the box, there's additional space for two little children on the bench. The bench in the Babboe Mini must be removed in order to use the maxi-cosi carrier. The maxi-cosi carrier is not suitable for use in the Babboe Mini Mountain as the bench cannot be removed.
Babboe Big and Dog
Unfortunately, the Babboe Big does not fit a maxi-cosi carrier. A baby seat can be installed in the Babboe Big if you wish to transport your baby in the cargo bike. The baby seat can be mounted onto the bench, so that there are still three seats.
To extend the life of your Babboe cargo bike battery, it is important not to deplete the battery below 5%, it is preferred to charge your cargo bike when there's about 20% capacity left.
If you won't be using your cargo bike for a while, store it with a relatively full battery (50-70%) and often check whether it needs to be recharged.
