CAKE for professionals
The company has collaborated with different professional user groups, to design and develop the new :work series builds – on CAKE’s three existing platforms: Kalk (high performance off road), Ösa (modular utility bike), and Makka (urban commuter).
Optimizing power, reach, efficiency, and capacity, the adjustments and reinforcements specific to the :work series include an increased range, that allows the bike to run for the full working day, and power support which enables workers to power electronic tools or, for example, regulate the temperature of food delivery boxes.
Additionally, :work series bikes have an increased towing capacity as well as a more compact design, such as narrower handlebars, allowing riders to more easily weave between cars. CAKE is also offering a wide range of purpose-built accessories that will allow riders to customize their bikes, as well as 19 complete configurations.
he :work series is built to endure the demands of the working professional, offering a low total cost of ownership and, as a result, increased profit margins. Additionally, much like the other series, they are designed to have minimum impact on the environment. This makes it an ideal solution for last-mile deliveries (an industry which is expected to be worth over $200 billion by 2027), the e-commerce delivery sector (growing by more than 78 percent in 100 of the world’s largest cities), and food deliveries, which are predicted to grow by 60 percent.
