The Christiania Classic midDrive Steps is a top-of-the-line cargo and passenger bike
With its powerful industry-leading Shimano EP8 Cargo motor that can take you across all terrains, flexible box suitable for all kinds of passengers or cargo, and premium finishes that will stay like-new even after years of use, the Christiania Classic midDrive is a fun and reliable trike that can grow with your family or business.
A Motor That’s More Powerful – And More Natural
The powerful STePs motor is perfect for hauling what you need, where you need it – including heavy loads on hilly terrain. The powerful EP8 motor can provide up to 60Nm and has a range of 40–60 km per charge. The battery has been developed in collaboration with Sony and contains Sony’s most advanced battery cells, which can handle up to 1,000 charges without significant power loss. The battery recharges quickly and can be charged while it is mounted on the bike.
In addition, the torque-sensing motor automatically adjusts to suit you, for a safer, more intuitive riding experience. The harder you pedal, the more the motor helps – so it won’t jerk forward when you’re peddling slowly in a busy pedestrian zone, but it will give you all the power you need to feel like that last big hill before nursery isn’t there at all.
A Box For All Your Needs
The Christiania Classic midDrive’s roomy, thoughtfully-designed box has a number of useful features which make it adaptable to a variety of passengers and utilisations, whether it’s babies from 1-9 months in a Maxi-Cosi carrier, toddlers 9-18 months in a Toddler Seat, or adults in the lap belt. The lockable Hard Bench provides safe storage space when you need to lock up your bike, and is the perfect size for your rain hood in good weather. The panels can be easily removed to transport cargo. The box is big enough to accommodate large cargo like prams, backpacks, or several bags of shopping alongside the passenger(s)!
For those looking to carry cargo, a lid or soft cover can also be fitted to the top to keep all of your goods safe and dry.
Finishes That Show Attention to Detail
The shiny, colourful car paint box doesn’t just look good – it’s durable, too! It can withstand rain, scratches, and kicks from little feet, and mud or dirt washes right off. No matter where you take your Christiania, it’ll be looking good as new, even 5 or 10 years down the line. That means that when you don’t need it anymore, you can pass it on to its next owner – at a much higher resale value.
Your Christiania Classic midDrive is unique – so why not customise it? In addition to your choice of box colour, you can mix or match the colours of your lap belts, soft seats (or hard bench cushions), bell, and hood at no additional cost! If Christiania’s colours aren’t striking your fancy, you can even get it customised with a vinyl wrap.
