Sometimes we just need a bicycle that can serve a utilitarian purpose: going from point A to point B with minimal fuss. However, the load limitations of most bikes can pose a disadvantage when compared to an automobile, as can the actual physical exertion of peddling.

eBikes are an increasingly popular option for commuters for their employment of pedal assist. Now, California-based firm Specialized, who’s spent the last 14 years championing these electric vehicles, has added a new category of cargo eBikes to its lineup. The Globe range aims to “fill the gap between a commuter eBike and a car,” with the Haul ST as its introductory model.

Capable of lugging up to 419lbs atop its aluminum frame with the help of a rear rack and plenty of accessory mounts, the Globe Haul ST boasts a 60-mile range on a single charge, fully loaded. The 772Wh battery helps you get up hills with five pedal-assist levels so that you’re not coming into work sweaty, tired, and ready to go home. Other features include front and rear headlamps, 20-inch rims with thick 3.5-inch tires, and a telescoping seatpost with a 13-inch adjustment range.
