Whether you’re on the heavier side yourself or just want to haul a lot of cargo (or both!), sometimes maximum weight capacity is a major factor when choosing a new e-bike.
If that’s the case for you, then you’re in luck, because today we’re going to be listing 10 different e-bikes that can all support 300lbs or more.
We’ll be looking at both cargo bikes and bikes designed exclusively for heavy riders, so if either of these suits your needs, keep reading.
1. Ride1Up: Prodigy (300 lbs)
A sturdy mid-drive model from well-known e-bike brand Ride1Up, the aptly named Prodigy features a rear cargo rack and a total weight capacity of 300 lbs.
While not a dedicated cargo bike, the rear rack allows you to haul either a young passenger or a box or two, perhaps some groceries.
Just keep in mind that the total weight capacity of 300 lbs applies to the combined weight of the rider and any cargo or passenger.
The Prodigy comes in three different frame options, a step-through, step-over, and step-over plus front suspension.
The standard step-over and step-through frames will cost you $2,300, while the step-over with added front suspension goes for $2,400.
While not cheap by any means, this is a relatively low price as far as e-bikes go.
This makes it a great option for anyone on a budget who doesn’t want to compromise quality regarding their e-bike.
2. Ride1Up: Cafe Cruiser (300 lbs)
If you like the idea of a low-cost e-bike that doesn’t compromise on quality but find the Prodigy just slightly too rich for your blood, you should consider the Cafe Cruiser.
Like the Prodigy, it comes with both step-over and step-through frame options and is a class 3 e-bike capable of a top speed of 28 mph.
Unlike the Prodigy, it actually has better cargo capacity, with a sturdy rear rack and fat, durable tires.
It also features a uniquely stylish look based on cafe racer motorcycles.
All that, and you can get one for only $1,500!
At least, you can if you act now, and get the step-over frame style, currently on sale as of the time of this writing on Ride1Up’s website.
You can get the step-through frame (as well as the step-over when it’s not on sale) for the only slightly more expensive price of $1,600.
3. Aventon: Sinch (300 lbs)
This is the last 300 lb capacity bike we’ll be covering on this list; it only goes up from here!
The Sinch, by respected e-bike maker Aventon, is also one of only two folding e-bikes on this list.
If you’re a heavier rider, you might have written off folding bikes as a bad idea, but maybe you shouldn’t!
An incredibly sturdy design means the Sinch is one of the few foldable bikes we’ve seen that can support up to 300 lbs and still ride like a dream.
It’s available in step-over and step-through styles and even has a small rear cargo rack, and boasts a 40-mile maximum range; impressive for such a compact bike.
Do note that, unlike many entries on this list, the Sinch lacks a cargo rack of any kind, so it’s intended exclusively for a single rider up to 300 lbs.
All in all, if you want a compact, foldable bike that’s easy to store and bring anywhere but can still carry up to 300 lbs, look no further than the Aventon Sinch.
You can grab one from Aventon’s website for $1,600 normally, but as of this writing, there’s a sale on for the step-through style for $1,500.
4. Lectric: XPremium (330 lbs)
Lectric is another well-known and respected e-bike maker, and they’ve got a couple of entries in the “high weight capacity” category as well.
The one we’ve chosen to look at today is the XPremium model, with a 330 lb capacity and an impressive 100+ mile range thanks to a second battery.
It also features the distinction of being the only other folding e-bike on this list besides the Sinch, and with 30 extra pounds of carrying capacity, to boot!
Unlike the Sinch, the Lectric XPremium also features a rear cargo rack, a small one, mind you, but it still allows you to have some cargo capacity while remaining compact.
All in all, the XPremium will carry more and take you farther, all while maintaining a sleek, compact silhouette that can fold up for easy storage.
You can grab one for $1,600 today!
5. Cyrusher: Kommoda (330 lbs)
Offering a supreme combination of comfort, style, sturdiness, and performance, the Kommoda by Cyrusher is uncompromising on all fronts.
The Kommoda features an easy-to-mount step-through frame and does not have a step-over option.
While step-through frames—all else being equal—can never be quite as sturdy as their step-over counterparts, the Kommoda’s durable design means you’re unlikely to notice the difference.
The Kommoda features fat, durable tires, a rear cargo rack, and a 50-mile range on a full charge.
All in all, it’s a quality bike with some advanced features, extreme ease of use, and it can be yours for $1,900!
6. Rad Power Bikes: RadWagon 4 (350 lbs)
A dedicated cargo bike with an extra-long rear cargo rack and a 350 lb total capacity, the RadWagon 4 by Rad Power Bikes will take you and your cargo the distance in comfort.
The long frame and low center of gravity make this cargo bike particularly easy to maneuver, something that can’t be said for all cargo bikes.
Additionally, the oversized cargo rack means you can take multiple kids with you or load up several heavy boxes at the hardware store with ease.
A full battery should take you 24-45 miles, depending on how much cargo you’re carrying.
You can get one of these great cargo bikes for about $2,000, a little more if you choose more advanced features.
7. DŌST: Crate Cargo Cruiser (440 lbs)
If you thought a 350 lb-capacity cargo bike was impressive, get ready to take it to the next level with the Crate Cargo Cruiser by DŌST, with a maximum capacity of 440 lbs.
DŌST makes sturdy, dual-battery-capable e-bikes that go the extra mile for you—quite literally!
The latest entry in their lineup, the Crate Cargo Cruiser, is no exception to this rule.
It’s also brand new and isn’t even on the proverbial store shelves yet, but you can pre-order one direct from DŌST’s website today.
The Crate features a powerful 750w mid-drive motor, extra-long cargo rack, 440 lb weight capacity, and a whopping 60-120 mile range (depending on cargo weight) with a second battery!
The price starts at $5,000 and goes up if you add additional features, the most notable of which is a second battery to double your range for an additional $700.
8. Zize Bikes: 29er Max 2.0 (450 lbs)
Zize Bikes has the rare distinction of being an e-bike maker exclusively dedicated to making high-weight-capacity bikes intended for larger riders.
With that in mind, the last three entries on this list, all from Zize, will be of particular interest to heavier riders looking for a dedicated personal-use e-bike.
None of these are dedicated cargo bikes, though some do feature modest cargo capacity in addition to facilitating a heavier rider.
The first of these we’ll be taking a look at is the 29er Max 2.0, which has no cargo capacity, but can comfortably accommodate a rider of up to 450 lbs.
The bike itself is surprisingly lightweight considering its capacity and features a comfortable, high-thread-count saddle and 750w motor for excellent performance and comfort in one package.
It’s also got extra-wide tires specifically built for taller riders, and with that in mind features a sturdy step-over frame.
If you’re a rider who’s both taller (5’6″ and above) and heavier than average, this could be the perfect e-bike for you.
You can grab one for yourself for around $6,700.
9. Zize Bikes: A New Leaf (550 lbs)
The next Zize bike we’ll be looking at is fancifully titled “A New Leaf” and has an impressive maximum weight capacity of 550 lbs.
Like the 29er, it has no cargo features at all, so that generous weight limit is specifically intended to facilitate heavier riders.
This makes the New Leaf an amazing choice for any heavy rider looking to get around with ease and comfort and get in some exercise at the same time.
Made with aircraft-grade steel, this bike features a frame that’s surprisingly light yet virtually indestructible.
Turn over a new leaf today and get your New Leaf eBike for $7,000 from Zize’s website!
10. Zize Bikes: Supersized Personal Activity Tricycle (550 lbs)
While the other 9 entries on this list are traditional 2-wheeled bicycles, we felt it would be remiss not to include at least one trike on a list of high-weight-capacity bikes.
The Supersized Personal Activity Vehicle eTrike by Zize proves this point in spades.
First of all, it allows you to ride in a relaxed semi-recumbent position.
Secondly, not only does it have a maximum weight capacity of 550 lbs, but unlike the other Zize bikes on this list, it actually has some cargo capacity in the form of a rear cargo basket.
This means that as long as the combined total of you plus your cargo equals less than 550 pounds, you can do things with this trike that you can’t with other Zize bikes, like get the groceries!
It’s also got an extra large seat with back support; yet another comfort feature that the stability of a tricycle allows where a traditional bicycle falls short.
All in all, if you want to get around in supreme comfort, get a workout in, and pick up the groceries all at the same time, then the Supersized Personal Activity Vehicle is the eTrike for you!
You can get one from Zize’s website for $5,500.
