British company Raleigh now have a range of their own ecargobikes and the Stride 2 is pretty good value for money with a really nice, snazzy design. A children’s raintent for the box is available to purchase separately, as are a Flat Cover for the box (which is great for protecting the box contents from weather problems when you don’t have the children’s raintent on), an adaptor to fit in a MaxiCosi baby seat, and Cushions for extra comfort when the kids get older and sit on the wooden bench seat.
The Bosch motor will get you up even the steepest hills with ease, even when fully loaded with precious cargo. The integrated front and rear lights are excellent for visibility and the Nuvinci ‘stepless’ gears make changing gear easy-peasy. Hydraulic disk brakes as standard make stopping a breeze.
