This Cargo E-bike is Foldable and Glows in The Dark!

French company Calendar Bikes has revealed its new cargo e-bike, called the Longtail Max, featuring a glow-in-the-dark frame and unique mechanisms that allow it to fold effortlessly for transit.

Fold and Roll Away!

When users want to transport or stow away the Longtail Max, its handlebars are effortlessly folded down, then the front end of its frame is folded to one side, allowing it to sit parallel to the rear end. Once folded, it is flipped upside-down to be rolled along the ground on a set of built-in caster wheels at the back corners of the side rails. The entire process takes only a few seconds and condenses the bike’s length by about 50%.

The Longtail Max features:
  • 20-inch aluminum-rim wheels;
  • A 6061 aluminum frame with photo-luminescent paint;
  • A Shimano 7-speed rear derailleur;
  • Magura eSTOP hydraulic disc brakes;
  • Front and rear mudguards;
  • Folding pedals.

In addition, a 250W rear hub motor powered by a seat-tube-mounted 36V/10.4-Ah/360-Wh lithium battery boosts the rider’s pedaling power. One charge offers a range of approximately 25 to 31 mi (40 to 50 km), depending on the assistance level selected via a bar-mounted color LCD controller.

The e-bike measures 77 in (196 cm) in length when unfolded – that configuration includes a saddle for the rider and a passenger/cargo area in the back, which incorporates raised side rails to prevent people/packages from falling off. According to Calendar Bikes, the entire bike weighs 65 lb (29.5 kg) and can carry a rider/cargo load of up to 441 lb (200 kg).

The Longtail Max is available via the company website at a cost of about US$4,533 (€3,990). However, for those who want a bit more comfort, a Longtail Max Plus model is available, which adds features like a padded bench passenger seat, a suspension seat post, and footrests – that goes for $5,215 (€4,590).
