California-based Ferla Family Bikes has recently introduced the Ferla Lagom, a long-tail electric cargo bike that is touted as “the most powerful of its kind.” Designed to transport both children and cargo, this innovative e-bike is perfect for those who need a reliable, powerful, and versatile transportation solution.
At the heart of the Ferla Lagom is a custom 1,000-watt mid-drive motor that delivers an impressive 120 Nm (88.5 lb ft) of torque, enabling the bike and rider to reach a top assisted speed of 25 mph (40 km/h). However, potential buyers should be aware of local regulations, as many regions limit e-bike motors to 750 watts.
The Lagom’s power comes from a 17.5-Ah Samsung battery mounted on the down tube. An optional second battery can be added on a seat-stay platform, extending the range. With both batteries installed, Ferla claims a total range of up to 140 miles (225 km). Presumably, the single battery setup would offer around 70 miles (112.5 km) of range. A full battery recharge takes about 4.5 hours.
Constructed with a 6061 aluminum frame, the Ferla Lagom is equipped with numerous high-quality components. These include a house-brand suspension fork, an Enviolo continuously variable rear-hub transmission, a Gates Carbon belt-drive drivetrain, Tektro hydraulic disc brakes, Schwalbe Super Moto-X puncture-resistant tires, integrated headlight and tail light, as well as folding handlebars and pedals.
Buyers can further customize their Ferla Lagom with optional extras, such as one full-size or two toddler-size rear seats, wooden foot platforms, and a rear cargo rack. The e-bike weighs approximately 62 lb (28 kg) and can carry up to 450 lb (204 kg). The cargo rack itself can support a maximum weight of 200 lb (91 kg).
The Ferla Lagom is currently available for purchase on the company website in four frame colors. The introductory price is set at $3,999, but it will eventually increase to $4,999. With its unparalleled power and impressive range, the Ferla Lagom is poised to revolutionize the long-tail electric cargo bike market, making it an ideal choice for families and cargo haulers alike.
