The new Globe Haul ST is said to be able to carry up to 190 kilos for 100 kilometres on just one charge, making it an extremely impressive electric cargo bike.
Globe is essentially a new lineup of electric bikes that Specialised will start to offer to riders out there. This may confuse a few people because people thought that Globe would be introduced as a sub-brand rather than just a new line of bikes under the Specialized name.
These new Globe bikes will be able to let riders have a comfortable mode of transport, on both urban roads as well as other rough outdoor paths, while still being able to transport a good amount of goods.
The new electric Specialized bike will only be available in the US and will be starting off at a price of $2,700, but for those that don’t live in the US, not to worry because Specialized does have plans to eventually start selling this product internationally as well.
