The Stride family has a 900-liter capacity and a maximum container load between 80-100kg. Just like the Lovers, Carqon, Urban Arrow, and Riese & Muller the Stride has a Bosch Performance Cargo Line motor and a 500Wh battery. Based on the photos both Stride bikes have a polypropylene (EPP) box. The yellow element gives a fresh look. Both models have disc brakes and an enviolo steppless gear hub system. It’s unclear if the Stride also comes with automatiq gear hub system of enviolo?
Raleigh is part of the Accell Group a Dutch-based company that is also the owner of Carqon and Babboe two companies that are on the cargo bike market. What segment of the targeted audience Accell is aiming for with the Raleigh Stride is not clear at this moment. But that the cargo e-bike market will grow year over year is for sure.
