DE­LIV­ER­ING DOWN UN­DER

The Witness - Wheels - - BIKING -

OS­CAR Fehlberg calls the de­liv­ery bike he de­signed EsCargo, French for “snail”, but it is any­thing but slow.

The in­dus­trial de­sign stu­dent at Royal Mel­bourne In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy in Aus­tralia said his EsCargo is an ag­ile so­lu­tion that aug­ments lo­calised de­liv­ery, but has the range to ride across town.

An elec­tric mo­tor, big bat­tery pack and unique, ca­ble- op­er­ated dou­ble-knuckle steer­ing han­dling al­low the de­liv­ery bike to cut through con­ges­tion.

The strong lad­der frame can han­dle loads up to 200 kg and the de­sign eas­ily adapts to suit many jobs, whether it be de­liv­er­ing mail, con­sumer goods or fresh foods. — WR.
