The reimagined CERO One launches for preorders today at cero.bike after winning the coveted EUROBIKE Gold Award for electric cargo bikes.
Through a continued partnership with veteran cycling industry engineers Forrest Yelverton and Zach Krapfl, CERO Bikes updated the original, groundbreaking CERO One with improved components and features.
One Bike, All Your Daily Needs
The CERO One is for anyone who wants a bike that can do a bit of everything: commuting, light errands, dropping kids off at school, and leisure riding. It is the ultimate compact electric cargo bike, striking a perfect balance between nimble size and wide-ranging capabilities. And it’s fun to ride!
Made to Carry Cargo
Groceries? Backpacks? Pizza boxes? Children? Carry it all, up to 77 pounds, with the convenient LODEN modular cargo rack system, designed specifically for CERO bicycles. Three sturdy aluminum baskets mount on both the front and rear racks so you can customize the bike to your needs.
Smooth and Powerful
Never arrive sweaty at your destination again. The efficient Shimano E6100 motor
system boosts your pedaling up to 20 mph and gives you up to 105 miles of range on
a single charge. And with the Gates Carbon Drive™ belt and Shimano Inter-5E internal
hub gears, your bike will be smooth, silent, and nearly maintenance-free.
Easy to Ride
The CERO One’s unique design makes it easy for anyone to ride. Getting on and off is
a breeze thanks to the low-step frame, even when the bike is loaded with cargo. The
small front wheel gives you more stopping power and keeps the weight lower for a
more balanced ride.
Built to Last
The custom aluminum frame is strong and sturdy, but we don’t stop there. All CERO bicycles come equipped with top components from brands like Shimano, ABUS, Schwalbe, Ergon, and Gates. This gives you superior ride quality and a reliable, low-maintenance bike.
At just over 68 inches long, the new CERO One is the same length as a standard bicycle. All bikes come with top tier components including the Shimano e-bike
system, Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, custom rear and front racks, Schwalbe tires,
Satori adjustable stem, Ergon handlebar grips and saddle, ABUS frame lock, double
kickstand, custom fenders, and lights in the front and back. See the full specs here.
In Production Now
The new CERO One is in production in Taiwan and is expected to ship to customers
in August or September. Customers can choose between a Platform, Small Basket,
and Big Basket which can be placed on the front or rear rack of the bicycle. The
starting price (including a front platform) is $3,799.
