Meet the HSD
The HSD is a mighty-but-mini e-bike that’s ideal for fast local deliveries or for tourism businesses that want to offer guests a premium bike experience.
Customize it for YOUR business
We’ve got a huge range of accessories to customize the HSD to your business. So whether you need to carry backpacks of food, deliver kegs of beer, or carry precious kiddie cargo, the HSD is ready to haul.
Carries a Load
Despite its diminutive stature, the HSD offers some serious hauling capacity. With a maximum gross vehicle weight of 170 kg (374 lb) and an XL-sized Atlas H Rack, it’ll easily deliver a week's worth of groceries or a stack of 10 pizza's (plus beer) for the weekend football game. Used for bike rental, it'll carry one child, a change of clothes, and supplies for an impressive picnic.
Adjusts to Fit
The HSD resizes in seconds to fit riders from 150 to 195 cm (4'11" to 6'5") without tools, so riders of all sizes can get a comfortable riding position. Your business benefits by stocking fewer bikes (imagine if you needed 5 frame sizes to fit different riders), achieving higher fleet utilization, AND having happier riders.
Excellence in Motion
The HSD is made from high-quality parts like the best-in-class Bosch motor system, Shimano or Magura hydraulic disc brakes, and Schwalbe puncture-resistant tires. Premium components and precision engineering make for a better ride, fewer repairs, and a longer service life. Your riders will enjoy the premium riding experience, and you’ll enjoy lower maintenance costs and less downtime.
Storage space costs money but the HSD has a secret power; the HSD flips up for convenient Vertical Parking and takes up about as much floor space as a bag of groceries. Store a small fleet indoors for safety, without having to invest in new parking infrastructure for the bikes.
Just five seconds and the HSD transforms into a flat package that's perfect for fitting inside SUVs, vans, or pickups — no bike rack needed. Fit 5 into the back of a Ford F-150 or 18 in a Sprinter van. We call this FlatFold technology and it makes it easy to move bikes around to wherever they're needed, whether that's a different warehouse, a different hotel, or to the starting point for your customer's day of adventure.
The HSD is shorter than a standard bicycle, with an extra low center of gravity, making it a breeze to handle in city traffic. Add in the HSD’s Easy-Step frame design and comfy upright riding position, and you’ve got very happy riders.
Tough and Tested
A good bike for business needs to be able to take a beating. To make sure the HSD is up for the challenge, we've partnered with EFBE Prüftechnik GmbH, one of Europe's leading bicycle test laboratories, to test the HSD frame and fork to 170 kg (374 lb) according to the rigorous new German DIN 79010 cargo bike standards.
Need to move stuff instead of guests? You don't need a van to help with logistics. Add a Carla Cargo to your HSD and you've got a modular cargo solution that can handle XL loads of bulky luggage and irregularly shaped cargo.
