The Christiania Straight model
Christiania Straight Light is one of our most popular models. Nimble, light and a pleasure to ride. Designed specifically for the transport of up to four children. The Prairie Panorama rain hood is extremely versatile.
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 most compact and yet spacious cargo bikes on the market.
The Christiania Straight rolls so smoothly and swiftly, it is just a pleasure to ride.
Fitted generally with seven speed and coaster brake (three and eight speed are also available), and with a tight turning circle, it is surprising manoeuvrable in most urban settings.
There is a range of box colours and canopy shapes and colours; see details below. Two choices of seats: a wooden bench, with optional pillow, or a soft seat; both are for two children and come standard with a lap-belt. For children younger than two, an additional three-point harness can be fitted. Climbing on board is aided by an aluminium step.
The turning radius is only 480 cm making it a surprisingly manoeuvrable cargo bike in most urban settings. The total width of 87cm has been designed to make it possible to easily enter normal sized backyard doors in Copenhagen.
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.
