Specialized's Globe line of e-cargo bikes launched

Published March 9, 2023

MORGAN HILL, Calif. (BRAIN) — Specialized Bicycles is launching its Globe line of cargo e-bikes with the debut of the Haul ST model. What the company calls filling the gap between a commuter e-bike and a car, the Globe line is designed with increased load capacity and equipped with an accessory mounting system.

At this time, Globe only will be available in the U.S., with plans to expand distribution in the future.

The Haul ST, which the brand teased late last year, is built on an aluminum step-through frame and a hub-drive motor designed to transport up to 419 pounds for up to 60 miles on a charge. Five levels of pedal assist are available. Pedal assist is controlled through the Globe Haul ST handlebar remote HMI, which also displays state of charge, estimated remaining range, and odometer.

The one-size-fits all platform with a dual-telescoping seatpost and adjustable handlebars can accommodate riders from 4-foot-5 to 6-foot-4. It rides on 20x3.5-inch wheels. The mounting system and Specialized's engineered accessories — front and rear pannier adaptors, a rear passenger seat, handlebars, foot pegs, an MIK-ready front rack, and rear wheel cover — will allow riders to personalize storage and seating configuration.

MSRP is $2,700.

The Haul ST will launch with an exclusive presale for customers who signed up early for the bike's waiting list. The limited quantities will be available by special invite, which began hitting inboxes and mailboxes at the beginning of March. The presale went live Wednesday with B2C going live Thursday at 9 a.m PST.
