The Onderwater Tandem is a head-turning cargo bike built specifically for carrying up to three kids and involving them in the propulsion of the bike. Distinguishing it from many other cargo bikes, the Onderwater has seats to accommodate three children, two with their own pedals linked to the drivetrain of the adult driver, and a third on a booster seat tucked between the driver and the handlebars. A sturdy rear rack allows for carrying a pannier with miscellaneous cargo or a child seat for an additional child. This wild invention from Dutchman Ronald Onderwater is perfectly suited for young active families looking to pass on their passion for biking to the next generation.
An Enviolo (formerly NuVinci) N380 Continuously Variable Transmission rear hub provides seamless shifting through a wide range of gears, Shimano roller brakes provide the stopping, and the dynamo powers the front and rear LED lights. The drivetrain that links the driver's pedals to the gears is fully enclosed. A secondary chain-line links the front passenger's pedals to the driver's and is covered by a partial chainguard. Puncture resistant Schwalbe Marathon tires allow for worry-free riding in various conditions. Included on the bike are the rear rack, fenders, as well as the Hebie double-leg kickstand--a necessity for safe loading and unloading of kids and cargo.
The Onderwater Tandem XL is differentiated from the "standard" Onderwater Tandem in that it is a longer bike, with an additional child seat and corresponding pedals and drivetrain in the front. The total length of the standard Onderwater Tandem is 94" whereas the length of the XL version is 108".
You may choose from a wide selection of custom colors when ordering an Onderwater Tandem XL.
