How do we know for sure? Well, we tried it out! Over 443 kilometers and 5,535 meters of altitude, we subjected our bikes to the most fun endurance test of the year and redefined the term “going steep”: From Garmisch-Partenkirchen we went over Fernpass, Reschenpass, Via Claudia Augusta, Passo Campozzin and Lake Garda to Lago di Ledro in Italy.

Fortunately, we had a camera and our smartphones with us. So we can show you everything we experienced and how the motor, battery, tilting technology, brakes and gears performed. To the YouTube documentary, please click here!


Back to the future


We finally need a new positive idea of the future: a green utopia worth living in, with joy, beauty and humor. But can we change the world and have fun doing it? Yes we can! MÄX & MÄLEON stands for maximum riding pleasure & consistently sustainable mobility for all!

A ride on the PASSENGER BIKE puts a smile even on the oilsmeared lips of car fanatics. And that’s despite the fact that we really work hard to earn the dislike of the gasoline lobby: Compared to a car, MÄX & MÄLEON saves you massive CO2 emissions and lots of cash at the gas station.

In addition, all bike components are environmentally friendly, high quality, durable and sourced as regionally as possible exclusively in Germany and Europe.

Although this costs us time, money and nerves, it is worth it. Because the truly sustainable mobility of the future requires supply chains and production processes designed with the environment in mind.

Our demand for quality combines German engineering with sustainable handwork. Each MÄX & MÄLEON is therefore unique, made in our Stuttgart production facility. Where once the first car was made, we now build the first real alternative.

The PASSENGER BIKE is an electric three-wheeled cargo bike designed to offer a unique riding experience. Especially when carrying heavy loads, a three-wheeled bike is more stable than a two-wheeled bike. The chassis is stabilized with two front wheels and a tilting technology that is air-sprung, balancing the bike even in critical situations. This provides safety in wet roads, during winter and when cycling off-road. A cargo trike is less likely to tip over than a cargo bike with only two wheels, as it stabilizes on its own. With double the braking power, the bike can stop quickly and safely, even on wet roads.
