We are now pleased to present the new Omnium Cargo Electric with integrated Shimano STEPS 8000 power unit. The STEPS 8000 is by far the best system for an electric bike – we tested a lot of options and we are certain this is the Omnium Cargo that will take you to the very TOP of the hill. We are looking at creating STEPS 8000 versions of all our Cargo models so if you need a Mini or Mini-Max with extra kick then tell us too.

Powerful SHIMANO STEPS motor is strong enough to handle the steepest of hills, yet intuitive enough to give you just the right amount of support every pedal stroke along the way. Designed specifically to give you that natural feel of riding a normal bike. Weighs only 2.8kg, one of the lightest motors on the market. Stable, smooth intuitive power for improved bike handling over every part of your day. Solidly supports speeds up to 25 km/h.
Lightweight yet rigid crankset for direct power transfer. Both crankset and rest of the drivetrain built on SHIMANO’s proven technology. This gives you reliability and confidence from first to last pedal stroke. Drivetrain components designed to work in sync with each other for unparalleled effectiveness and reliability. Spec’d with SHIMANO Hollowtech II bottom bracket for added strength and direct power transfer. E-bike specific Deore XT crankset. Shorter 165 mm crank arm minimizes pedal strikes to maintain smooth cadence and motor assistance.

Further personalize your support settings by choosing Dynamic, Explorer or Custom Mode to perfectly match your riding style and intended terrain.
