This shape-shifting cargo trike morphs into trendy urban bike with the push of a button

How about a cargo trike that can instantly slim down into a trendy city bike? Yes, that’s what this highly practical automotive design is all about.

Cargo trikes are a good option to haul essentials in cities, but they fall short on looks when you have to ferry them around without any hauling goods. We live in times where the multifunctional aspect of anything pays dividends in the long run of use. Rhaetus electric folding cargo bike brings that useful multifunctional aspect to the forefront with its mindful design that I’m sure you’ll love to the core.

Designer: HTH Han

This electric drivetrain-powered cargo bike minuscules all the other cargo bikes on the market which are good for hauling cargo, pets or even children – but fall flat on thier face when it comes to normal biking. Yes, this is where Rhaetus shines with its expanding and contracting design to go from a city cargo hauler to a cool-looking electric vehicle for general commuting. The cargo bike has a foldable front storage area that can collapse to morph the ride into a small mobility vehicle suited for congested streets.

The folding middle structure is crafted out of tarpaulin fabric so that it can be folded neatly at the push of a button without much hassle. This is done via the folding mechanism actuated by the hydraulic device and structure of the rear spindle. The bike is capable of carrying 172 liters of load in the expanded mode. The possibilities of use of this vehicle are greatly expanded with this shape-shifting form. It can go from a compact city shuttle to a camping accessories carrier for long travel mode in no time.

The front and the rear sides of the storage area are loaded with lighting for night commutes. In the collapsed mode these join together to form the headlights of the electric bike. So, no one would ever guess in their wildest of dreams that this cool-looking electric bike is actually a cargo trike when needed. The dashboard on Rhaetus is flush with modern-looking telemetry displaying navigation mode, speed, battery levels, turn signals and the driving mode. It comes with a dedicated screen control knob to quickly toggle through the available options.
