Kangaroo Luxe

Kangaroo Luxe is the original cargo bike from Winther. It is a cargo bike of the highest quality created with a focus on comfort, safety, functionality and design  – The ideal family cycle for you and your children when you are on the school run, when you go shopping, when you go on a day trip or…

Comfort and superb road-holding qualities
Kangaroo Luxe delivers superb road-holding qualities due to the patented 3-point steering system which ensures rigidity and good stability.

The torsion bare suspension ensures excellent passenger comfort. The independent suspension on the front wheels enables running with high tyre pressure, reducing the risk of punctures and minimizing rolling drag.

Designed with children in focus
The Kangaroo is intended for transportation of children and this has been the focus from the start unlike other cargo bikes where cargo transportation is the point of departure.

So it is not only the superb road-holding capabilities we have thought of, but equally important is it that the children are comfortable and safely seated in the cabin, where the parents can seem them.

The Kangaroo Bike has a roomy cabin and flexible construction fitting two children of up to 135 cm of height. The lower front makes it easy to enter the cabin and the safe child seats can slide forwards, backwards, face backwards and lie in a sleeping position.

Safety
The frame construction on the Kangaroo Bike is light, strong and torsion-stable. It is built on aluminum 6061 ensuring low unladen weight. It has reflexes and it has been prepared for adding lights.

The bike has a frame number on the back frame and a visible number plate with the same number built into the front frame to prevent theft.
