If you’re gonna be hauling kids and cargo around on your ebike, then that bike had better have some oomph. Well, the Ferla Lagom sounds like a good choice, as it lays claim to the title of “the most powerful long-tail electric cargo bike ever built.”
Manufactured by California-based Ferla Family Bikes, the Lagom features a custom 1,000-watt mid-drive motor that delivers 120 Nm (88.5 lb ft) of torque, taking the bike and its rider to a top assisted speed of 25 mph (40 km/h). Potential buyers should check if such a beefy motor is allowed in their region, as many places draw the line at 750 watts.
Power is provided by a down-tube-mounted 17.5-Ah Samsung battery, which can be teamed up with an optional second battery located on a seat-stay platform. Ferla claims a range of up to 140 miles (225 km) for the two-battery package, so range for the standard single battery setup would presumably be about 70 miles (112.5 km). A full recharge reportedly takes 4.5 hours.
Some of the Lagom’s other features include a 6061 aluminum frame; a house-brand suspension fork; an Enviolo continuously variable rear-hub transmission; a Gates Carbon belt-drive drivetrain; Tektro hydraulic disc brakes; Schwalbe Super Moto-X puncture-resistant tires; an integrated headlight and tail light; plus folding handlebars and pedals.
Along with the second battery, optional extras include one full-size or two toddler-size rear seats, wooden foot platforms, and a rear cargo rack. The whole thing is claimed to tip the scales at 62 lb (28 kg), and can carry up to 450 lb (204 kg) – the rack itself can manage a maximum of 200 lb (91 kg).
The Ferla Lagom is available in four frame colors via the company website, at an introductory price of US$3,999 – that figure will eventually rise to $4,999.
