WorkCycles Kr8 V8


WorkCycles has been building 2-wheeled cargobikes since 2004. They’re super easy to ride and handle with all kinds of (often precious) cargo. Our latest Kr8 V8 takes you further. Electric assist via a German made Pendix motor makes you super(wo)man: Ride with heavy loads, even uphill and against the wind. Cruise much greater distances. Drop the kids off at school and continue to work without sweat.

Of course the Kr8 V8 has all the features and quality we already love about the Kr8. It's equipped to carry your growing family, from babies to school kids and every combination in between. The Kr8 is one of the few cargobikes with space for both an infant in a Maxi-Cosi, bigger siblings on the bench… AND the canopy to keep the kids warm and dry. The Kr8 stands solidly and rolls right on and off its automatically retracting four point parking stand.

The Kr8 V8 is a real Dutch bike; Designed in Amsterdam by cycling enthusiasts who sweat the details, and hand made in Holland. You sit comfortably upright and the bike is fully equipped for daily transportation, dry or wet, day or night. The drivetrain is fully enclosed to minimise maintenance. The silent, maintenance free hub dynamo powered lighting is internally wired through the frame, fork and fender. Being a WorkCycles the Kr8 V8 is built to live outdoors and endure years of day to day use.
