Yuba: Supermarché Bosch & Classic
Yuba’s Supermarché takes a decade of experience with Cargo Bikes in a whole new direction: up front!
A frontal load keeps your cargo as low as possible and right where you can see it. This is particularly fun when your cargo is 99kg, giggling and/or jiggling about! It could be a couple of kiddo’s and a box of toys, a cello or a washing machine. You decide.
The bay has a number of options as well: add the ‘rail & sail’, or bamboo box, as well as a pair of bamboo seats. Any cargo which can be strapped down securely is welcome too, including a variety of 3rd party seating. An adult in the bay may be content with a cushion or a coolbox, choose as you see fit.
The mixture of a low handlebar position and being a step-through, means that several different riders of alternate heights can share the same bike too. Keeping the kickstand under the rear of the bay area means you can whip it out at a moments notice, which really comes in handy when your cargo weighs more than you do!
Whilst embracing a forward thinking approach, the Supermarché retains Yuba’s signature rear rack: it can handle a further 36kg with either a Yepp seat, top box, or equivalent as well. This ensures you can adapt to near-infinite combinations in whichever direction life takes you. You can leave a Yepp seat attached, or add a top box from a motorcycle if you’d like a lockable compartment.
The original Supermarché comes with Yuba’s legendary ability to transport virtually anything with human power alone. Ideally suited for flatter areas, this is the model to choose if you like to keep your cargo in full view at all times.

With all the merits of the Supermarché Classic, the Supermarché Bosch adds a 250W motor and 500Wh battery combo to a reinforced frame. This is a revolution for most riders, as augmented bicycles take capable machines and transform them. This is the model to choose if you plan to make frequent journeys with heavy cargo, especially the school run!
