A true next-generation Carqon Flatbed with a strong focus on design, safety, functionality, and technology – that was the brief for the Carqon developers. A transport bike that will be a robust and versatile yet stylish mode of transportation for small independent professionals like courier services and handymen, but also for surfers, holiday makers, and campers.
Unique platform for optimal safety
The platform of the Carqon Flatbed is lined with 3M™ anti-slip tape and includes sturdy hooks and a rail system to secure any load with lashing straps for safe transportation. The Flatbed platform can hold anything, from suitcases to crates and boxes and from camping gear to sports equipment.
The most powerful Bosch electric propulsion offers ground-breaking range
The Carqon Flatbed offers an exceptional potential range of 120–140 kilometres, which is unique for cargo bikes. Carqon uses the new generation Bosch mid-drive motor, the most powerful electrically driven motor in the Bosch line-up (Bosch Performance CX Cargo Line), which also offers the option for a double 400-watt or 500-watt battery.
Smooth cable steering system, strong braking power
The Carqon Flatbed features the so-called Double Cable Steering System – a technology that was first used in the automotive industry and which offers a safe, direct and smooth steering experience. The hydraulic disc brakes (Tektro Dorado 4-Piston) guarantee safe and evenly-distributed braking power.
The 100% aluminium frame features a sporty geometric design and high torsional rigidity resulting in optimal cycling and transport performance. The low centre of gravity combined with the sturdy Schwalbe tires and the front fork suspension provides comfortable, smooth and safe cycling. The distinctive character of the Flatbed has won Carqon several design awards, including the European Design Award and the German Design Award.
Carqon is part of the Accell Group, which includes other renowned bicycle brands like Babboe, Batavus, Sparta, Koga, Haibike, and Winora in its portfolio. The production and assembly are done at Accell in Heerenveen. This collaboration allows us to combine knowledge, quality and superior parts in a cargo bike that will have Carqon setting a new standard in the bicycle market.
The Flatbed platform can hold anything, from suitcases to crates and boxes and from camping gear to sports equipment.
