Benno Bikes started with a pencil sketch that led to an unexpected reinvention of bike design. The idea was simple. Tweak the standard geometry of the frame to create a more natural seating position and the ability to put your feet flat on the ground when starting and stopping. They called it Flat Foot Technology and it helped the Electra Bicycle Company Benno Baenzinger co-founded in 1993 inspire millions of people to ride. It seemed like common sense, but the rest of the bike industry was ignoring the real wants and needs of riders.
Benno Bikes was founded in 2015 with the goal of reinventing bike design once again. Not only to inspire more people to ride, but to empower them to ride more. To grab a helmet and leave their car keys behind.
Etility™ Design is at the heart of every Benno ebike. It’s what makes us different. A typical ebike offers a nice ride, but not much utility. A cargo ebike carries heavy loads, but can be difficult to maneuver. We believe what people really need is an everyday ebike that offers the best of both worlds. Awesome agility with the ability to carry exactly what you need. People say it’s like having an ebike with a trunk. That’s Etility.
Challenging environments and heavy loads are no match for the uncompromising and award-winning Boost E. This compact and extremely sturdy Etility bike is always ready for the next adventure – close to home or far from civilization.
The rigid aluminum frame and big 24” x 2.6” custom tires combine with the Bosch Performance Line/CX/Speed Electric motor to provide a powerful, yet composed ride. The unique upright riding position and ergonomic handlebar design lets you ride with purpose without sacrificing comfort and maneuverability. A smart, interchangeable rack and rail system lets you pick and choose from dozens of possible configurations to suit the mission. Capability meets versatility to make the Boost E the choice of professional rescue teams, adventurists, bike couriers and everyday suburban explorers.
Inspired by the lines of vintage Italian scooters and classic German cars, the eJoy combines the timeless language of vehicle design of the past with modern technology and our Etility design. The result is an ebike that’s both charming and capable.
It’s comfortable and upright, yet powerful riding position makes riding easy and fun, while the extra-strong aluminum frame with its low step through design gives you a smooth ride with extra control. The eJoy is a true two-wheeled electrical vehicle that allows you to leave your car behind, whether you’re running errands or on a scenic joyride.
The eScout is the ultimate commuter Etility bike, carrying substantial loads, but not an ounce of extra fat. Fast and nimble, the eScout is built around a taut, lightweight aluminum frame engineered for strength and rigidity.
Its road bike inspired design, in combination with lower, narrower handlebars, provides a sporty riding position ideal for navigating dynamic urban environments. Surge ahead with an efficient, lightweight Bosch Active Line Plus electric motor offering instant power on demand, while generating virtually zero resistance or noise when not in use. The sturdy oversized rear rack and the option to add our frame-mounted front trays in combination with our bags, baby seat adapters and other accessories give the eScout the versatility to adapt to your changing needs – from daily commute, to grocery runs, to family transport and more.
