Sometimes, it’s the simplest ideas that work best. Such might be the case with the Cargobike. Essentially just a big plastic box that fits where the tail unit and step-through of a normal scooter would be, it has advantages far larger than it’s huge carrying capacity.
By providing a motorcycle-style tank to grip with your knees, your body weight is transmitted through your legs under deceleration, leaving your arms free to steer. The protruding sides of the cargo box also protect your legs and feet from impacts while filtering, or in a crash. By carrying its car rivaling loads low and close to the scooter’s center of gravity the machine’s handling won’t be compromised by all but the heaviest of loads. We want ours on a T-Max, creating the ultimate extra-urban utility bike.
