Rounding off the list of features is a suspension fork, dropper post and a sturdy kickstand.
The Wonderwagen Neo 2 is equipped with a 545Wh battery that provides power through a Bosch Cargo Line e-bike motor. A Shimano CUES 10 speed drivetrain promises a robust, light-maintenance transmission and Magura hydraulic disc brakes contribute ample stopping-power, even when fully loaded.
