Trek releases new Fetch e-cargo bike range to promote sustainable travel

Trek releases new Fetch e-cargo bike range to promote sustainable travel

Trek has entered the cargo bike arena by launching the Fetch e-cargo bike range. The two-bike Fetch+ range has been developed with an aim of aiding sustainable travel for families. The range has been designed with children as one of the major focuses and promises to allow riders to travel more easily with both children and cargo.  

Sales of cargo bikes have increased dramatically in the last few years, with more and more people using them as a green alternative to a car to transport just about anything that will fit in them. Trek has recognised this growing trend and designed the two-model Fetch+ e-cargo range, citing research it has done across the globe to help get more families on bikes and to replace cars.

The Fetch+2 is the more compact cargo solution of the two models in the range and aims to solve travel problems for families. The Fetch+2 can be fitted with two aftermarket child seats at the rear to transport children safely. As children grow, users can then graduate to what Trek calls the ‘The family package’ replacing the child seats with a ‘safari bar’ for children to hold on to, footrests on either side of the bike, backrests and seat pads. The total carry weight for the Fetch+2 is 200kg. Whilst the rear panniers and rack are rated to 72kg each, whilst the front rack can carry up to 9kg.
