"Whether you’re bombing around town running errands or heading to the mountains for an epic ride with friends, you’ll go further, faster and with more comfort than anyone else on the road. Period.”

“They really understand what people want from an e-bike, and what they will use. These bikes will get more people out, and get them out FAR, exploring new terrain and distant climbs with ease of mind and comfort.“

BUILT TO BE VERSATILE
With a hauling capacity of almost 7 times its own weight – 440 lbs, and a complete array of must-have complimentary accessories, the Crate is the perfect cargo bike to suit any on-the-go lifestyle. But despite its impressive capacity, the Crate is still compact - about the same length as a regular city bike, plus it has a low stand-over height so riders of all sizes and abilities feel confident.
A CRATE FOR YOUR CARGO
Make the Crate tailer-fit your needs with DŌST’s specially engineered custom accessories. Whether your cargo fits in bags, on an extra long rack, or in a child seat, the Crate can handle it.
INNOVATIVE Ō DRIVE SYSTEM
Building an ebike that can safely handle a payload in excess of 400 lbs takes more than a precision-engineered aluminum frame, it requires an equally advanced powertrain, a throttle and the option to add a dual battery so you can really go places. The result is a bike that’s simple to ride and as effortless and convenient as driving a car. Once you discover Ō Drive you’ll wonder how you ever rode a bike without it.
M600 HIGH TORQUE MID-DRIVE MOTOR
At the heart of the Ō Drive is the M600 torque-sensing mid-drive motor. Compact and efficient, the M600 delivers a staggering 120 Nm of torque, 40% more torque than any other mid-drive on the market, plus it’s completely integrated with the Enviolo Automatiq CVT transmission. The M600’s torque-sensing design means the power delivery is progressive and intuitive.
INTEGRATED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
The perfect companion the the Crate’s high-torque motor is the heavy duty cargo-specific Automatiq CVT by Enviolo. It’s completely integrated with the M600 motor, delivering a truly revolutionary riding experience.
In Automatic mode, you simply set your preferred pedalling speed, the motor and CVT communicate to take care of gear changes automatically. Whether you’re riding fast or slow, uphill or down, the powertrain is adapting in real time. Just set it and forget it, so you can sit back and enjoy the ride.
In Manual Mode you have complete control over your riding experience, using the shifter as you would with a traditional derailleur system.
GATES CARBON BELT DRIVE
Every rider will appreciate the Gates Carbon belt that replaces the traditional roller chain. Smooth and silent, the Gates belt requires no lubrication and has a much longer lifespan than a chain so you can forget about maintenance for years to come.
Each DŌST is equipped with a high-performance 500W mid-drive motor to elevate the throttle and pedal assist with both satisfying high speeds and hill-climbing (120nM of torque) capabilities.
Eliminate range anxiety with the DŌST Optional Dual Battery System providing an impressive 180 km (120 mi) of range via the 25 Ah (1200 Wh) combined battery capacity.
440 LB Cargo Capacity
With a carrying capacity of almost 7 times its own weight, and all the must-have complimentary accessories you could need, the Crate is the perfect cargo bike to suit any on-the-go lifestyle.
24” Wheels & 3” Wide Tires
The Crate has a 24” diameter wheel because it makes the bike compact in size yet delivers superior riding characteristics compared with 20” wheels. The 3” wide tires provide more stability on rough roads than skinnier tires and they have a large volume of air inside so the tires act as shock absorbers.
Despite its impressive hauling capacity, the Crate is still compact - about the same length as a regular city bike, plus it has a low stand-over height so riders of all sizes and abilities can feel confident.
Upright Riding Position
With the powerful mid-drive motor doing the work, you’re free to sit up and enjoy the ride in a nice comfy upright riding position. Crate Cargo Cruiser. Even the name says comfort.
Heavy Duty Hydraulic Disc Brakes
A cargo bike designed to carry 440 lbs requires a more powerful braking system than you’d find on a regular ebike. That’s why the Crate is spec’d with top of the line 4 piston hydraulic disc brakes on both the front and rear, delivering unparalleled stopping power at the squeeze of a finger so you can ride with confidence.
Brake Light + High & Low Beam Headlight
The reason the Crate comes equipped with integrated brake lights and high/low beam headlights is the same reason they’re standard equipment on cars. It’s because of safety. Letting other vehicles know you’re coming to a stop, being visible with daytime running lights and adjusting your headlight for oncoming traffic and higher speeds all add up to riding with safety and confidence.
Heavy Duty Dual Kickstand
Kickstands are handy to have on any bike. But on a multi-passenger cargo bike, the kickstand isn’t just handy, it’s absolutely indispensable. That’s why a heavy-duty dual kickstand is standard on the Crate. Our dual kickstand keeps the bike sitting upright while you load and unload your passengers and cargo, confident that the bike is secure until you’re ready to ride.
