Photo disclaimer: the second picture with the grey color frame shows what the bike looks like with the child cover on, but the color of this particular bike is white.
The Riese & Müller Load 75 is an electric assist cargo bike of exceptional comfort and quality. Not only does it feature a front suspension fork with 70mm of travel, capable of absorbing the cobbles and bumps of the city, but it has a built-in X-Fusion Glyde rear suspension as well. This pairing of shock absorbers (which Riese & Müller has dubbed “control technology”) dampens, if not utterly silences, the often withering feeling of vibration and instability which can accompany riding a bicycle at high speeds on rough terrain, be it paved or not. It’s safe to say that the Load 75 possesses the most cushioned ride for either the driver or occupants of any e-assist cargo bike.
Furthermore, the Load 75 features a good deal of adjustability. A quick release adjustable stem not only telescopes up and down to accommodate riders of different heights but also has tool-free angle adjustability forwards and backwards to extend or reduce the amount of reach to the handlebars. The seatpost is similarly adjustable without tools.
Bosch provides the motor, display, and battery--the entire e-system for the Load 75. Either a Bosch Cargo Line Cruise 4.0 or a Bosch Cargo Line Speed 4.0 motor powers the bike, depending on the Load 75 model variation chosen by the buyer. Both motors provide 85Nm of torque and up to 400% pedal assistance. The Cargo Line Cruise is a class 1 eBike motor with a maximum assisted speed of 20mph and the Cargo Line Speed is a class 3 eBike which can provide motor assistance all the way up to 28mph.
The Load 75 can accommodate up to 1000Wh-worth of batteries in the form of two 500Wh Bosch Powerpacks, one housed on the rear of the storage box, the other mounted to the frame to keep the center of gravity low and stable. The buyer ultimately has the choice between a single 500Wh battery or upgrading to the Dual Battery setup with 1000Wh of battery life, doubling the bicycle’s range. This choice lets the rider select the battery option which will give them the range they desire, to span the city, the suburb, and beyond, even with cargo. Lastly, one can choose between three Bosch displays. The standard display option on the Load 75 is the intuitive Intuvia display. However, one may wish to upgrade to either the SmartphoneHub or the powerful, multifunctional Nyon display.
Riese & Müller have built the cargo section of the Load 75 to accept a variety of cargo carrying vessels and covers. When ordering a Load 75, one will choose from several front cargo options, with some intended more for open-ended, general cargo hauling, and some intended specifically for family and child transportation. All Riese & Müller bikes are built-to-order, and the process to configure a bike involves a number of choices and selections. Although this may seem overwhelming at first, that's where we come in. If you're interested in purchasing a Riese & Müller bicycle, reach out to us and we'll talk you through each choice and explain each option, tailoring your bike so that it meets your individual needs.
For this Load 75, we've selected the options for you, and it has all the upgrades! The color is white, and it's a universal frame size that is quickly adjustable for riders approx. 5’2″ to 6’6″. The bike is equipped with the Bosch Cargo Line Speed motor, which makes it a class 3 eBike that provides speed assistance up to 28 mph. It's also upgraded to the Rohloff E-14 Speedhub with a belt drive. The Rohloff E-14 is the top of the line gearing system for bicycles; with one push of a button you get the fastest gear shift possible; a long press of a button shifts three gears at a time - continuously as long as it's held; and one of its best features is that when you stop the bike, the E-14 shifting system will automatically down-shift to a pre-programmed gear number, so the bike is automatically ready for you to start pedaling again from a stop. Additionally, this Load 75 is upgraded with the 1,000 Wh DualBattery system. The cockpit has Bosch's premium Nyon display, which provides navigation and fitness data.
Its cargo area has the low side walls with a child cover, which means the seats in the cargo area are easily accessible for children while also providing protection on the road and from the elements. The cargo area also has a footwell that provides more legroom for the passengers. In addition to the three seats in the cargo area, there is a luggage shelf that sits over the most forward seat for additional storage space or for one or two kids to use as a tray in front of them. For even more storage space, the bike has a rear rack, too.
