Meet the Edgerunner
Discover the ultimate cargo bicycle, a shape-shifting, do-it-all, ready-for-anything machine designed to handle whatever you want to haul—and evolve with your needs.

The Edgerunner: Ready for Anything
The newest incarnation of the Edgerunner:
- Super-stable and comfortable to ride.
- Easy to mount and dismount even with kids or groceries on the back.
- Available as a purely human-powered mechanical cargo bike, or with the powerful, efficient, and ridiculously fun Bosch electric-assist drive system.
- Fits a wide range of riders.
- Customizable and built to grow with you for life.
- Fun, yes, but also life-changing.
- Built to last—a very long time.
You’ve got options
The Edgerunner isn’t just one bike. It’s many. You can choose from a variety of options to design the bike that’s best for you and your life.
Why all the raves about electric assist?
It’s just like riding a bike—only with superhuman strength! You’ll be able to carry virtually anything—like multiple kids and a few bags of groceries—to the top of the tallest hill. Or all your climbing gear and a friend to your favorite bouldering spot. It’s easy! Flip on e-assist, adjust the level of boost you want, and ride like the wind!
Still not sure about e-assist? Check out our 20-reasons to go electric or learn more about the Bosch system and which motor or batteries to choose. We believe e-assist is the future. Yet if you decide it’s not for you, you can choose a purely human-powered Edgerunner.

Swoop or classic? Which one?
You can choose from two Edgerunner frame shapes. The big difference is what we call “step-over height”—how high you need to step to get on and off the bike.
The Swoop is our newest frame design, with a lower “step-over height,” so it’s easier to get on and off, even when the bike is fully loaded. That said, the Classic was also designed with a relatively low step-over height, compared with many other bikes. The Classic will also be a better fit for taller folks. (See our sizing table.) And, yes, to some degree the choice is an aesthetic one.
What about carrying stuff?
When you go to design your bike, you’ll be able to select cargo accessories that suit your needs. People have different needs, so we want you to build the bike that suits you best. Need some background on our hauling accessories? Read up on our Super-Modular Accessory System for hauling stuff or our Junior Co-Pilot Passenger System for safely carrying kids.
Need some guidance?
You’re in luck: our Matchmaker Recommendation Engine is here for you. Take a few minutes, answer a few questions about yourself and your lifestyle, and our robot will send you an instant bike recommendation. Of course, you can also talk to a friendly human Xtracycle expert. If you have questions or just want to chat, call us at 888-537-1401 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Choose our Ready to Ride ship option for us to expertly assemble and ship it complete to your door, ready to roll right out of the box. If you live close to one of our “ship-to” dealers, we can send your bike there, and they can handle assembly. Otherwise, we ship directly to you. Some assembly required. You’ll be shown your shipping options during the check-out process. Currently, we ship bikes only in the continental United States. Learn more about shipping. If you live outside the U.S., we do not ship directly, but you may order a bike through one of our international distributors.
Warranty & returns
Xtracycle warrants each frame, fork, and original component part of the bicycle against defects in workmanship and materials. The bicycle frame and fork are covered for three years. The warranty does not cover normal wear and tear; improper assembly; improper follow-up maintenance; installation of parts or accessories not originally intended for, or compatible with, the bicycle as sold; damage or failure due to accident, misuse, abuse, or neglect; labor charges for part replacement or changeover.
