CUBE Concept Dynamic Cargo Bike | 750 Wh | Manufacturer’s website

The two Bavarian companies, CUBE and BMW, have gone one step further to drive the urban mobility transition. With their Concept Dynamic Cargo trike, they’re presenting an innovative concept for sustainable and long-term mobility, promising an ultra-compact, safe and manoeuvrable vehicle for everyday use with their step-through cargo trike. The CUBE Concept Dynamic Cargo trike is said to have been developed specifically for urban environments. We were the first magazine to have the exclusive chance to put the trike to the test. The model we tested is a concept bike, meaning that it isn’t yet production ready and the components and solutions can still be changed or added. That said, the bike is ridable and a production model should be available on shop floors by the end of 2022 for around € 6,000. Alongside the CUBE Cargo Sport Dual Hybrid (review here), the Concept Dynamic Cargo trike is already the second cargo vehicle in CUBE’s portfolio. However, their collaboration with BMW on the new Concept Dynamic Cargo is a first and focused primarily on the development of the innovative tilting mechanism. The trike debuted at the IAA Mobility expo (covered in this article) in Munich.

About the author

Peter Walker

As a technical editor, Peter is as much a man of action as he is of words. This expert, screw-driver-flexing two wheeled-whizz has many envy-inducing characteristics, including a background in motocross, several EWS race plates to his name, and more than 150 recorded days at Whistler Bike Park. However complex the bike and however steep the trail, he’s probably already nailed it, twice. Oh, and he can do it all on skinny tyres too. When it comes to guiding consumers, Peter cut his teeth at Vancouver’s oldest bike shop and now puts pen to paper on the daily translating this know-how into our editorial plan. When not tearing up Stuttgart’s local trails while testing bikes, he loves nothing more than loading up his self-renovated VW T5 and hitting the road. The fact that he’s a trained paramedic gives his colleagues reassurance out on the trails. So far we haven’t had to call him by his alias ‘Sani Peter’, so here’s hoping he keeps it right side up for the rest of his time here!
