This Class 2 e-bike has a top speed of 20 mph using both the throttle and pedal assist, so it isn’t necessarily the fastest bike around, but we feel it’s plenty fast for a utility/cargo style model.
Press the switch to the “I” on the battery mounted beneath the saddle to power on the battery. On the dual-battery Packa, you will also need to press and hold the rubber button on the downtube battery. The battery(ies) must be powered on in order to control the display on the bike.
The Blix Packa is a highly sensible electric cargo bike that costs less than half of primary competitors like the Tern GSD and Yuba Spicy Curry Bosch. The mid-tail bike is only slightly longer than a regular bike and, thanks to 24-inch tires, it’s easy to whip around town—despite weighing nearly 80 pounds.
