The Blix “Packa” Brings Electric-Assist and Compactness to the Cargo Bike

The Blix Packa brings electric-assist and compactness to the cargo bike, making it one of the more versatile options on the market.

The Packa features a powerful 750W rear hub motor that’s capable of propelling the bike up to 20 mph (32 km/h), allowing riders to choose from five different power levels in order to dial-in the right amount of assist, or simply letting the bike’s electric motor do the work.

The Packa also features a 1.19 kWh dual battery system, which automatically triggers the second battery to take over after the first battery in depleted.

Both batteries combined, the system can provide a range of travel up to 70 miles (112 km).

Additionally, the Packa uses a smaller 24″ wheel, giving the bike a better ride quality, while also lowering its center of gravity for improved standover height and handling.

“We looked to develop the perfect balance of convenience and rider friendliness with the Packa at an approachable price point. Built for utility, it’s also a bike that will bring the fun back to your everyday adventures. It features a uniquely designed multi-modular racking system that allows you customize for your cargo needs in over 200 ways,” says Blix’s founder and CEO Pontus Malmberg.

While exact pricing for the Packa has yet to be announced, Blix says it will “start below $2,000”, putting it at a price point that’s well below most of the competition.

In the meantime, Blix has launched a crowd-funding campaign on Indiegogo, offering early-backers special incentives on the Packa
