  • Product Description

      The Load.
      Trans-Sport Bike.

      The revolution begins in the crowded streets of the city bustling with commuter traffic. Safely and comfortably – thanks to the full suspension – past the long queues, on the Load E-Cargo bike. Even as you set off, you'll be surprised by its sportiness, even despite all your luggage. The challenges of everyday life, like transporting crates of drinks to the BBQ spot half a mile up the hill, will no longer be any trouble at all. Quick rider changes are a piece of cake since the handlebar and saddle can be adjusted to almost any body size. So all that remains is for us to say: dear car, it's great staying in the garage.


      The Bosch system

      Reliable, performance-oriented and innovative – these are the standards to which we hold our E-Bikes, as well as all components and especially the drive system. That's why all Riese & Müller E-Bikes are equipped with the industry-leading Bosch drive system.

      Maintains a deep relationship with the road.

      Only an E-Bike with true full suspension keeps ground contact on poor roads – and keeps you in full control. This ensures better road holding and safety at high speeds, with heavy loads and in tricky situations. Vibrations and hard knocks like those experienced on cobbles or kerbs are significantly diminished. Your luggage is also protected on the co-sprung cargo surface and the optional frame-mounted, sprung luggage carrier.


      Grows with its tasks.

      Thanks to the angle- and height-adjustable stem as well as height-adjustable saddle, the seat position on the Load can be adjusted to accommodate body heights from 1.50 m to 1.95 m and adapted to comfort preferences from sporty to comfortable. The overall geometry of the Load can be customised in a few simple steps. This flexibility is unique among E-Cargo bikes and makes the Load ideal for shared use, for example within a family. 

      Twice the range. Twice the riding pleasure.

      Riese & Müller is doubling the range of its E-Bikes with DualBattery technology – in other words, by incorporating a second battery. This increases the capacity to an astounding 1,000 Wh and propels Riese & Müller to the fore when it comes to range. The second battery is mounted behind the cargo surface in order to keep the bike's centre of gravity low and to maintain the excellent riding behaviour. Besides being able to go twice as far on long trips, you no longer have to worry about your range in your day-to-day riding either.


      Does not bend to any challenge.

      The trellis frame has extremely high rigidity values. The less bendy the frame, the more direct the transfer of force, and the Load does not tend to jitter at all. Together with the low cargo centre of gravity and the Control Technology, the superior and sporty riding characteristics are noticeable even with heavy loads.

      Simply pack twice as much.

      If the front storage space is not enough, there is always the optional carrier. It is ideal for attaching panniers, making it perfect for longer bike trips too. Since it is secured directly to the frame, it also benefits from the suspension thanks to Control Technology.


      Helps night owls see in the dark.

      Always ride with excellent road illumination thanks to the IQ-X headlamps from Busch & Müller. Only daylight is brighter than their exceptional brightness of over 100 lux. With its very wide-sweeping and homogeneous large-area illumination of the street, you won’t miss a thing. They are operated via the Bosch display, while the energy is supplied via the battery.


      The fastest route to a standstill.

      The hydraulic disc from Tektro deliver maximum performance, no matter what the weather. The large brake discs allow the braking effect to be optimally applied as needed. They don’t produce rim wear and impress with their consistent braking performance.


      Steal success from thieves.

      Park your Load wherever you want. Only you can take it away. The standard frame lock clicks shut simultaneously with the battery lock, so you only need one key for your E-Bike. We recommend the optional combination of a simultaneously locking ABUS Bordo as a second lock and a bottle cage plus water bottle (not included when ordered without Bordo).


      With the best solution for your individual transport needs at your fingertips, to accommodate your very own lifestyle, you’ll be happy to leave your car in the garage. Thanks to the Shimano Deore 10-speed derailleur gear and Control Technology with full suspension, the Load is easy to handle, even fully laden. Generously dimensioned hydraulic Tektro disc brakes provide safety. A broad array of accessories helps to solve any transport task. The rich color concept makes your Load unmistakable.
