The Edgerunner: Ready for Anything
The newest incarnation of the Edgerunner:

- 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 have 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.
Should I choose e-assist? What’s it like?
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, most evolved frame design, with a much lower “step-over height.” That means it is easier to get on and off, even when the bike is fully loaded. No need to swing your leg over the seat or lean the bike toward you to get on. Just step through and off you go. That said, the Classic was also designed with a relatively low step-over height, compared to many other bikes. The Classic also will be a better fit if you are very tall (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 will 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 hauling kids.
Lots of options, yes. Need some guidance?
We understand. That’s why we’ve created our online bike recommender. Take five minutes and answer a few questions about yourself and your lifestyle, and we’ll send you our recommendation for the Edgerunner that will suit you best. Of course, we’re also firm believers in the value of talking, human to human. If you still have questions, just call: 888-537-1401.
If you live close to one of our “ship-to” dealers, we can send your bike there, and they will handle assembly. Otherwise, we ship directly to you. There is 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.
