The concept of Etility for electric bikes is a phrase coined by Benno Baenziger at Benno bikes. It’s a good one. Benno bikes fall mid way between a conventional electric bike and a cargo bike.
Not too big that you can’t get them in a cycle cage at work or home but still super useful for carrying a whole heap more stuff than a conventional electric bike can handle.
Cycle Volta wrote a great article explaining this in more detail with a great history of the Benno Brand and how it evolved. Check it out below.
