Details


A highly useful compact electric cargo bike, Surly Skid Loader is built for heavy loads and goes where traditional long-tails can’t quite fit. Engineered to expand utility and shrink footprints, it’s ideal for cutting down on car trips and navigating tight spaces — think bus racks, packed trains, or studios without storage space. Skid Loader comes in three broad frame sizes, and it’s equipped with a robust rear rack, the option to run dual batteries for greater range, and clearance for large-volume tires. For hauling more gear over longer distances and everyday rides on whatever surface, Skid Loader rolls along, happy to oblige.
