COTATI, Calif. (BRAIN) — Yuba Bicycles has launched a limited edition off-road electric cargo bike, the Spicy Curry AT. The new model is spec’d with front suspension, seatpost suspension, off-road tires and other components designed to carry passengers or gear over gravel, dirt or other off-road terrain.
“We’ve been thinking about creating an all-terrain bike for several years now,” said Ben Sarrazin, the CEO of Yuba Bicycles. “It really is the ideal bike for forest, lake and mountain adventures. I just love the idea of having the freedom to take your kids on a dirt, gravel or grassy path to a lake, park, picnic and more. This would also be an awesome bike for camping, hunting, fishing or other outdoor activities with its large longtail cargo space — all while lowering your carbon footprint and using a sustainable form of transportation.”
Yuba will offer 50 Limited Edition Spicy Curry AT’s this year. The bike includes many of the same characteristics of the recently released Spicy Curry city version, but with off-road specific components. The new Bosch Cargo Line Speed Motor provides support up to 28 mph and enables load-controlled acceleration, even when starting off. It’s paired with the Bosch Powerpack 500 battery that is designed for longer rides. The Spicy Curry AT also comes equipped with Bosch’s Kiox color display. The Kiox offers five riding modes and can track your route, heart rate and more.
The Spicy Curry AT also includes a hydraulic 4-piston front and 2-piston rear disc braking system from Magura, Schwalbe Smart Sam Plus (front) and Smart Sam K Guard (rear) off-road tires, an SR Suntour XCR32 thru axle front suspension fork, saddle and grips from WTB.
Its aluminum frame can accommodate up to three passengers and up to 440 pounds of total payload. The Spicy Curry AT, priced at $,5000 MSRP, comes in black with red accents, and is available now.
