The EsCargo Bike Features Innovative Steering Dynamics

The EsCargo is a unique and innovatively designed delivery-centric cargo bike prototype, developed by Melbourne-based inventor Oscar Fehlberg, that features steering dynamics that are completely different from any other electric bike out there.

This particular cargo bike is designed for mid-range trips. It is capable of carrying loads weighing up to 150 kg, which translates to roughly 175 liters of capacity. Inspired by Dutch-style products like the Urban Arrow, the EsCargo's unique steering dynamics are a result of the fact that the front wheel is placed over a meter in front of you. The load you're hauling is located at the front in between the axles, which makes for improved center of gravity.

This design ensures that the cargo bike's haul is in view and safely held together, and allows for improved stability and handling for whoever's behind the handlebar.
