RFA means ready for anything

RFA can carry two kids in or out of Yepp seats, four standard pannier bags, or any of our RFA X3 Bag System components. With our modular Utility MultiRack, you can carry almost anything you can imagine or need. We’ve even engineered in the ability to rotate the handlebars 180 degrees, so the RFA Utility fits on bus racks, car racks, and elevators. Perfect for compact spaces and growing families that need to carry kids and cargo.


RFA is the transformer of cargo bikes

Our patent-pending DynamicDrops are the answer. The rear wheel has two possible mounting points on the same frame. The forward position gives you a standard bike wheelbase. The back position gives you the wheelbase of a midtail cargo bike, about 5-1/2 inches longer. Purchase the bike in the mode you need now. Later on, when life changes, adapting the bike to those different needs is a painless, low-cost process.




Set up in sport mode it has the wheelbase of a standard bicycle and a zippy, agile feel. In utility mode the bike is a fully capable mid-tail cargo bike.



Xtracycle's RFA can be built with one of 3 motors from Bosch: the High Torque CX Drive, the All Around Performance Drive, or the Performance Line Speed motor that can propel you up to 28 mph. more on motors
