Babboe: Curve Series
The Babboe Curve is a beautifully stable and elegant Family Cargo Bike, designed to nip around town with 1-4 kids up front. It comes with a round-edged box equipped with handles for the kiddos to grab hold of (and steps to clamber up), plus the option of a cheeky little motor to whoosh past conventional traffic!
With seven gears and a 100kg weight limit for your cargo, this is a terrific option for the school run, shopping trips and picnics in the park over the weekend alike. There is a front light built-in to the steps, with LEDs and a wheel lock on the rear (plus a parking brake). A readily adjustable saddle height is all part of the package, so you can exchange riders and passengers as easily as can be.
The Curve is a particularly sturdy series, from the heavy duty Schwalbe Big Apple tyres, to the triangular footprint. Having three wheels is confidence inspiring, especially at low speed when our cargo is animated. It also helps when we add a couple of extra passengers, as the general feel of the ride is much the same as when we have one or two (and/or the family dog). With the motor on the Curve-E, technology ensures that you keep setting the pace: you can still expect to be amongst the fastest off the lights even when you’re fully loaded.
