Specialized has added to its Globe Haul electric bike family with the new Globe Haul LT, joining the Globe Haul ST, launched in the US only earlier in 2023. 

LT stands for Long Tail, and the Globe Haul LT stretches the Short Tail bike’s wheelbase to add extra cargo carrying capacity from its extended rear rack, which is twice the length of the ST’s. 

It’s a bike sold by Specialized in the US to service the growing market for electric cargo bikes. These bikes make a great alternative to cars for shorter trips and allow you to carry either cargo, or fit the bike out to carry up to three passengers. You can fit MIK-compatible child seats for younger passengers and can add a trailer for even more space. If you want to know what it’s like to own a cargo bike we’ve also just reviewed the Omnium Mini-Max.

“Even though they’re affordable, they’re so overbuilt, so premium in their own simple way that they’ll last a riding lifetime,” says Globe Haul lead designer Erik Nohlin, who’s based in Sweden.
