With Christiania Classic Light, you are “together”.
It is common for children to move into our cargo bikes. It is not only about transporting children safely to the kindergarten, the playground or on other trips. It is also about giving children an extra space for more intimacy and enjoyment. It is still one of the lightest and fastest cargo bikes on the market.
Classic Light is one of our most popular models. Nimble, light and a pleasure to ride. Designed specifically for the transport of one or two children. Buggatti Panorama rain hood is extremely versatile and makes the bike seem even smaller. The lower front panel allows for a better view ahead and even more enjoyable ride.
Safe interior, designed for children
The selected materials are warm and soft. The interior of the box has no sharp edges to avoid scratching or fingers getting caught. All materials are of excellent quality and from natural and environmentally friendly resources.The 9mm plywood panels are riveted to heavy duty steel profiles and tightly bolted to a light aluminium front frame. This construction seals the children’s room from rain and wind. At the same time, it is a strong construction, which can withstand impacts and the Scandinavian weather conditions for years too.
Made, designed and assembled in Denmark
All our models and main parts are based on our own drawings such as the front hub, frames, boxes and all steel components. Most of the parts are made in Denmark such as steel frames, the steering, the handlebar, wheels and not least our handmade boxes. All models are prepared and shipped from Denmark and safety checked by your local mechanic.
