Cube launches new three-wheeled cargo trike
The cargo bike scene has been developing rapidly over the past few years and here at Cycle Sprog we are very excited to see a new type of cargo bike being launched by Cube.
The three-wheeled electric cargo bike is called the Cube Trike Hybrid and has two wheels at the rear and one wheel in the front - making it a hybrid between a trailer and a cargo bike.
This trike has a child-carrying box at the back which looks very familiar to a child-carrying tool that has been around for decades; the good old child bike trailer!
The Cube Trike Hybrid comes in a cargo version and a family version - the latter being designed to carry two children.
This electric cargo trike comes with a Bosch Cargo Line motor and the cargo box can handle a load up to 50kg (which is plenty for two small children).
The optional front carrier can hold another 20kg, which will allow you to carry all the bags, snacks and nappies for family trips.
The trike can be ridden by people from around 5ft 2in to 6ft 2in (160-190cm) allowing it to be used by multiple members of the family (and beyond!).
As shown in the photo, the Cube family trike tilts independently from the box in which your children would be sitting.
Obviously we would have to try this trike before we can tell you more about the benefits and downsides of this set up but it's certainly very exciting to see new innovations like this in the three wheeled cargo bikes space!
Price and availability
The Cube Trike Hybrid 750 will be retailing for £6,499.
The trike will be available in the UK this summer.
