LEVA-EU Member Alligt introduce their third 20″ wheel, CBW3 (Cargo Bike Wheel 3), made of high quality plastic with fiberglass. It is designed for the heavier multitrack cargocycles up to 600 kg with 4 wheels. After some further testing, Alligt is hoping to release it for a static load of 150 kg per wheel and for assistance up to 25 km/h. The weight of the plastic part of the wheel is 1.4 kg, the weight of motor plus wheel is around 5 kg.
The first motor, which has been specifically adapted for this wheel has been produced by the Canadian company Grin Technologies. The details for the motor attachment were developed in consultation with GRIN. Alligt want to further cooperate with GRIN with a view to facilitating future lightweight cargovehicles together and adapting wheel and motor to future market demand.
The first pair of wheels will be assembled in the GoLo, a new cargocycle developed by LEVA-EU Member Flevobike. These motors then sit together with the bottom bracket generator from Bike2.dk in one of the possible drive lines. The GoLo with CBW2 front wheels and CBW3 rear wheels can be seen at World of eMobility on November 18,19,20 in the Expo Haarlemmermeer.
