Puma’s New Cargo Bicycle

by Matt Forcey

Danish bicycle company Biomega and design collective KiBiSi have collaborated to create this new bike for sports brand Puma.  The PUMA Mopion Bike has a metal rack attached to the front of the frame for carrying baggage.  The frame is made of aluminium, weighs 22 kilograms (48.5 lbs) and comes in black, white, or a magenta, blue and lime livery.

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.  The geometry holds the body in a slightly inclined, but still heads-up position for navigational ease and exceptional balancing.

By pulling together the best parts of practical, continental city and folding bikes, BMXs, American cruisers, and fixies, these bikes create a whole new urban typology, one that stands out in the crowd and knows how to make its own way.

Mopion will be launched at the Eurobike and Interbike shows in September 2010, and will be available in spring 2011.
