Benno Boost E – Bicycling 2017 Road Bike Editors’ Choice Winner
BY THE EDITORS OF BICYCLING
The Benno Boost quickly became one of our favorite e-cargo bikes. It’s well balanced and nimble – the mid-length cargo-bike wheelbase helped its handling immensely over other, longer bikes. We loved the extended battery life: One charge gave us over a week of cargo hauling and toting the kids to school. And when the batteries tanked, it wasn’t a chore to ride it around like it can be with some other bikes of equal capability. It has integrated lights, solid mount points for cargo, and a dedicated rack on the front that added to the balance of the bike and helped distribute loads when carrying heavy stuff. Testers also loved the seat’s integrated handle: It’s a seemingly minor detail that is actually a huge advantage when it comes to living with this electric cargo bike.
What the Editors Said: “Of all the e-bikes I’ve ridden, this is the most versatile one.” “This is a very smart design. Everything works—the handle under the saddle, the kickstand placement, the rack.” “Aesthetically, it’s beautiful too.” (» online article source)
