Xtracycle ignited the cargo bike revolution that’s spreading around the world. Xtracycles are designed with the belief that virtually anything in your life can be accomplished with a bike and a sense of adventure.

Twenty years ago, an idealistic Stanford engineering student, Ross Evans, landed in war-torn Nicaragua. In a tin and cinder-block shed, he welded together a revolutionary invention: a long-tail cargo bike that empowered farmers to pedal their produce to market.

Returning to California, Ross founded Xtracycle with a vision for transforming American transportation. Together with countless early riders, Xtracycle ignited a cargo bike movement that is spreading across the globe.

The EdgeRunner
 

An evolution of the EdgeRunner design. Featuring the same 20" rear wheel for better stability and acceleration but now features a more thoughtful frame design with a lower stepover height, a 15mm front thru-axle for better stability, and "WeddingRing" rack attachments. The new models were designed alongside the brand new X3 Bag System and frame geometry that can fit any rider. This bike is built to grow with you, for life.

The Cargo Node is a game changer for people who live in cities. Thanks to 350 lb of carrying capacity, it's a full-sized cargo bike, yet it folds down to 1/3rd its total volume in only ten seconds. It’s designed to fit in an elevator, so it’s easy to store in an apartment, and it’s light enough to carry onto public transit.

The Cargo Node from Tern and Xtracycle represents the ultimate transportation solution for people who want to live car-free and are tight on storage space.

The New Xtracycle RFA

The RFA is built on a patent-pending Xtracycle designed bike frame that can be set up in two different modes: sport (i.e. short wheelbase) and utility (i.e. mid length wheelbase). The RFA grows and shrinks to meet your needs through all stages of life, from young adult, through parenthood and beyond.

Essentially, the rear wheel has two possible mounting points on the same frame. The forward position gives you a standard bike wheelbase. The back position gives you the wheelbase of a midtail cargo bike, about 5-1/2 inches longer.

Three battery options:

• 400 Wh/~40 miles per charge
• 500 Wh / ~45 miles per charge
• 1000 Wh /~95 miles per charge

Three motor options:

• 20 mph Performance Line
• 20 mph High torque CX Drive
• 28 mph Bosch Speed (Class 3)

RFA Sport

The RFA Sport package comes with our Sport MultiRack, allowing you to carry two panniers or one child. On the front, we’ve included PorterRack mounts for attaching our patented PorterRack and PorterPack for additional cargo capacity, if you choose. With a standard bike wheelbase, it will fit on bus racks, car racks, and roll right into an elevator.

RFA Utility

Carry two kids in or out of Yepp seats, four standard pannier bags, or any of our RFA X3 Bag System components. With our modular Utility MultiRack, you can carry almost anything you can imagine or need. We’ve even engineered in the ability to rotate the handlebars 180 degrees, so the RFA Utility fits on bus racks, car racks, and elevators. Perfect for compact spaces and growing families that need to carry kids and cargo.

Xtracycle has dramatically improved their EdgeRunner offering by combining frame options (Swoop or Classic) with a wide array of choices: from motor to battery capacity (dual battery available) and a host of useful inter-compatible accessories.

 The EdgeRunner has been designed from the beginning to be safe, durable, and grow with you for a lifetime. The compact 20” rear wheel makes loading children or cargo easy, and the low center of gravity keeps the bike feeling stable especially when riding with kids. Longer than other bikes to accommodate cargo, the EdgeRunner handles just like any other bike - you have to try it for yourself.

Front thru-axle, Shimano Deore hydraulic brakes, e-bike specific chain, burly FSA DH Pro Headset, comfy Ergon grips, and puncture-resistant Schwalbe Big Ben slick tires round out the EdgeRunner package.
