Riese & Müller

Riese & Müller Packster 80 Vario HS

What it's built for:

The Packster 80 is Riese & Müller’s full-sized, conventional, front-loading cargo bike. With a spacious cargo deck and a 200kg weight capacity, the Packster 80 is perfect for families that want to haul up to three kids around or businesses that want a distinctive delivery bike for their brand. This cargo hauler offers a more conventional cargo platform upfront than bikes like the Load giving you more options to configure it to your liking, but because it’s an R&M you know that there is a suite of bespoke accessories available to tailor the bike to your needs. This Vario version uses an R&M specific Enviolo infinite-shift internal-hub gearing system that provides a wide range with no conventional “gears”; the chain is then replaced with an ultra-low maintenance belt for hassle-free riding. The HS version upgrades to Bosch’s Performance Line Speed motor which increases maximum assisted speed to a zippy 45kph.

Why we love it:

The Packster is a wildly useful and fun-to-ride cargo bike that provides thoughtful touches at every turn. It has a flat cargo platform so your creativity can run free and customisation knows no bounds. Need to haul the kids one day and washing machine the next? The Packster is ready for it all and so much more.

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.

Bicycle Junction is situated at 1 Marion St, Te Aro, Wellington.
