Benno Bikes @ The Rusty Crank


Benno Bikes - "etility" design logo


A typical ebike offers a nice ride, but not much utility. A cargo ebike carries heavy loads, but can be difficult to maneuver. We believe what people really need is an everyday ebike engineered with the perfect blend of ride dynamics, cargo capacity and good looks. Awesome agility with the ability to carry exactly what you need. We call it Etility® Design and it’s at the heart of every Benno ebike.



EScout :   Sporty - Fit - Capable

The EScout is the ultimate commuter Etility® bike, carrying substantial loads, but not an ounce of extra fat. Fast and nimble, the EScout is built around a taut, lightweight aluminum frame engineered for strength and rigidity.

Its road bike inspired design, in combination with lower, narrower handlebars, provides a sporty riding position ideal for navigating dynamic urban environments. Surge ahead with an efficient, lightweight Bosch Active Line Plus/Bosch Performance electric motor offering instant power on demand, while generating virtually zero resistance or noise when not in use. Extra-large 27.5” x 2.4” Schwalbe Moto tires contribute to a smooth, fast and comfortable ride while providing natural suspension. The sturdy oversized rear rack and the option to add our frame-mounted front trays in combination with our bags, baby seat adapters and other accessories give the EScout the versatility to adapt to your changing needs – from daily commute, to grocery runs, to family transport and more.

RemiDemi :  Ready - Clever - Bold

The ebike is evolving to be less a traditional bike and more of a two-wheeled electric vehicle. That means they will continue to take on their own looks, identity and most importantly their own purpose. The electric motor changes how bikes ride, what you can do with them and what they are allowed to look like. Fat, small tires are no longer slow and hard to ride; they are fun, grippy and offer lots of cushy suspension. Low step through frames are cool and convenient. High handlebars allow you to sit upright with a clear view of the road. Bigger saddles are comfy and make you want to ride further. The RemiDemi was designed to shed those old and outdated beliefs. It's a totally new breed of ebike with a fun yet sturdy and stable ride that gives you more control. The unique and iconic lines of the pragmatic frame design give it a fresh yet timeless and simple look. And of course being a Benno it has our trademarked Etility® Design which means it can carry more cargo and can easily be accessorized with different Benno front trays, Yepp® child seats and most Racktime® baskets, trays and bags.
