So you thought a high capacity cargo bike couldn’t offer you a dynamic ride? Well, think again. Despite impressive cargo capacity, the Armadillo will zip through the city just like any other bike and it just might be the most fun you have ever had transporting yourself and your stuff! ￼
No need to slow down for bad roads
Individual double wishbone suspension allows the bike to travel safely and comfortably at 25 km/h on uneven surfaces, even with sensitive cargo or passengers. Cobblestones, tram tracks, small kerbs, pot holes -you can go full speed on most uneven surfaces (up to a certain limit of course). The suspension is adjustable, but as long as you stay within recommended loads you can use the same setting unloaded and fully loaded.
Fits on narrow bike paths
The small width makes it safer to maintain speed when meeting other cyclists on two way cycle paths.
High stability when cornering
The Armadillo has high cornering stability thanks to its four wheels and relatively low center of gravity, so speed can be maintained in corners. ￼
Seat that allows for maximum leg muscle output
Maximum leg muscle output is possible thanks to the support of the Flevobike seat. Compare with the power you get in the leg press at the gym! ￼
High torque mid motor and low gears gets you up that hill
The driveline offers low gears and high torque output from both legs and motor to the drive wheels. This means that the Armadillo with ease works its way up steep hills, even heavily loaded. And on the flat you will easily cruise at 25 km/h.
Small turning circle
The turning circle is surprisingly small, making it easy to make u-turns even on narrow streets, and to pass construction sites. And shouldn’t it be enough, it is easy to just put your feet down (yes, Flintstone style) in the ground to reverse. For really tight spaces, and for parking, you can easily lift the Armadillo in the front to move it around.
