Things you'd never dream of transporting on a non-cargo bike: Dimensional lumber, a sliding miter saw, a surfboard, a whole 'nother bike. But the Ösa, a utility e-bike by Swedish manufacturer Cake, can carry all of that stuff and more.
"While designing the Ösa, CAKE found that the variety of work and commuting in today's society has never been greater. What to bring and what to carry varies greatly between the office worker and the craftsman, and the roads toward the destination include highways and trails and everything in between. CAKE's solution was to build an electric and modular utility commuter vehicle with off-road capabilities and an integrated power station."
"Heavily influenced by the workbench, the Ösa design features a large gray bar extending out from underneath the seat. This uni-bar, modular clamp-on, the system serves as the heart of the Ösa, allowing users to attach baskets, bags, tools and more to create over 1,000 different possible configurations."
"Thanks to the powerful battery with multiple outlets, the Ösa doubles as a power station on wheels, enabling the rider to be completely independent, off-the-grid. Whether that's a carpenter charging power tools to build a cabin, or a DJ hosting an impromptu concert in the forest, the possibilities are endless. In town, the package delivery service or the pizza delivery guy may execute clean last-mile deliveries in cities around the world."
The Ösa runs USD $9,500. Check out all of the specifications here.
