Benno 46er Speed

Available in Denim Blue, Anthracite Gray & Wasabi Green 



As their newest utility cargo bike, the Benno 46er is an extremely versatile addition to the cargo bike line-up. With more load capacity than the compact Benno RemiDemi and a shorter wheelbase than the incredibly popular Benno Boost, the 46er sits somewhere in the middle. A fantastic option offering agility and stability with a great load capacity, and all in a step through frame!

Designer Benno Baenziger explains that the 46er is rather unique in that it is a similar length to regular bikes but that is about the only similarity. Benno has taken innovation to another level with the 46er. “they ditched convention and added capability”. Starting with the wheels, which on the 46er are different sizes. The front gets a 26” for comfort and control, and at the rear 24” wheel lowers the centre of gravity which offer more strength and stability, especially when loaded.

The 46er is available in one size that suit riders from 5’1” to 6’3” because of the adjustable seatpost and step-through frame geometry.

To add to this package, the 46er has front suspension making it an even smoother ride on uneven terrain.


Despite the compact look, the 46er can carry a bunch of cargo – up to 190kg, to be precise (including the rider). This can be distributed across the bike, with the front rack taking up to 10kg and the rear rack up to 60kg.

The rear of the bike can be fitted with a variety of products ranging from a child seat for the younger kids to sideloaders (footrests) for the older children. This means the bike is here to stay, no reason to update as the kids get older, just swap out the accessories.

The 46er is available with an abundance of accessories, and these also include a kickstand and integrated front and rear lights, so those are always going to be attached when you need them.


The 46er is running the top-of-the-range Bosch Performance Line Speed motor, offering 85Nm torque and assists up to a whopping 45km/h! The battery is 500Wh battery for good range and this can be doubled with the addition of a second battery, as the 46er is upgradable to a dual-battery system.

    About Us

    Though we’re a bike shop that sells, builds and fixes bicycles, they’re really just the means to an end; albeit a beautifully designed means to an idyllic end. Our job most importantly is to encourage as many people as we can to get out and ride for transport and enjoyment. We'd love to make riding a bike as commonplace as your morning cup of coffee, which by the way is our other obsession.
