Puma Cargo Bike | Trend Setter or a Fashion Victim?

by Bike Shop Girl

We featured the new bikes from Puma at the beginning of the summer and many people commented on the aesthetics of the bikes. Regardless of if you like them or hate them, they spurred enough of an opinion inside of you to comment. Due to this, their marketing and design team did their job very well.

Welcome the Puma Cargo Bike

From Puma’s Headquarters, Somwhere in Crayonland : PUMA Mopion is rock steady for the daily grind. It mixes city bike features, and cargo bike features, making it a sturdy companion. It comes with a super-size innovative front carrier for heavy duty transport of your groceries or other needs. Developed for city dwellers, Mopion features a light aluminum frame, making it a one-of-a-kind lightweight cargo bike weighing only 22 kilos. The geometry holds the body in a slightly inclined, but still heads-up position for navigational ease and exceptional balancing. The name Mopion derives from an island in the Atlantic Ocean, symbolizing the new Trans-Atlantic approach and balancing PUMA’s European heritage with American popular culture. Mopion will be available in white, black and in the bold color combination magneta/blue/lime. The colors are likewise inspired by vibrant island colors. Mopion defies the expected.

    I would rather ride a recumbent than that monstrosity. That’s saying something.

    Ha! That’s just mean!

    I’ve yet to see a front view of this bike, but it seems to me to be a lot of trouble for not much in the way of cargo space. By way of comparison, a LarryVsHarry Bullitt weighs about 24kg and offers a lot more cargo room.

  4. BikeBike says:

    I wonder if it would feel top heavy with the load so high up?

    Beyond that, if the price is right (under $1500) it might be a useful addition to cargobikeland.

    Of course they have a fixed-gear! However, I wonder if any cycling hipsters would buy a PUMA bike?
