Hase Bikes Blurs the Lines Between Cargo and Gravel Bikes with New Gravit Dust

Hase Bikes is blurring the lines between cargo and gravel bikes with the launch of its new Gravit Dust, offering cyclists a single solution for tackling portability when the terrain gets tough.

“Cargo bikes usually aren’t the first choice for sports or touring,” said Paulo Mesquita, product designer at Hase Bikes. “The Gravit Dust is different. It’s both a cargo bike that’s easy to transport and a gravel bike that can carry a whole lot of luggage. The perfect mix for anyone who wants a cargo bike with sporty performance.”

The Gravit Dust features a telescoping 6061 aluminum alloy frame, with a 50 x 82-cm (19.68 x 32.28-in) cargo platform mounted above a Spinner 300 suspension fork and front wheel, which can accommodate up to 40 kg (88 lb) of gear that’s secured in place with a cargo net fastened down to 10 heavy duty mounts, eliminating the need for a heavy cargo box.

All in, the bike tips the scales at just 20 kg (44 lb), with a maximum load capacity of 200 kg (440 lb). Moreover, the cargo board can be removed and the frame shortened for regular riding on roads or trails, or for ease of storage.

Elsewhere, the Gravit Dust is fitted with a 20-inch front wheel and a 26-inch rear wheel shod with Schwalbe Billy Bonkers tires, while stopping power comes courtesy of Shimano mechanical disc brakes equipped with a 203-mm rotor up front and 180 mm at the back, along with gearing provided by an 11-speed Shimano Deore groupset with micro-shifters.

Additionally, the frame is designed to accommodate riders between 1.5 and 2 meters (4.9 – 6.5 ft) in height, while the Gravit Dust’s Ergotec drop handlebar allows for further adjustment of the rider’s position.  

Offered in “Candy Purple”, the Gravit Dust sells for €3,790 (about US$4,250), along with a number of options that include a fabric box, low-rider carrier for panniers and a child seat.  

Lastly, for city dwellers, the Gravit Dust can also be had as an eBike aptly called the Gravit City, which is fitted with a 250-W Shimano Steps E6100 and 504-Wh battery.
