Dual Battery Cargo E-Bike Showdown: CYCROWN CycWagen vs. Heybike Hauler

Dual Battery Cargo E-Bike Showdown: CYCROWN CycWagen vs. Heybike Hauler

Electric cargo bikes have become essential in urban life, offering a range of practical applications. For individuals, a cargo e-bike can be transformative, facilitating grocery trips and errands with ease.

For businesses, an electric cargo bike is invaluable for delivery services, ensuring timely and effortless deliveries thanks to the pedal-assist feature. For families, a cargo e-bike provides a convenient and eco-friendly way to transport children to school and other destinations.

Recognizing the versatility and utility of cargo e-bikes, manufacturers strive to enhance the riding experience by extending the range of these vehicles. One innovative approach is the dual-battery design, which allows cargo e-bikes to achieve a longer range on a single charge, meeting the needs of riders who require extended operational capabilities.

Today, we will examine two dual-battery cargo e-bike models: the CYCROWN CycWagen and the Heybike Hauler. Both models represent the first dual-battery cargo e-bikes from their respective brands, enabling riders to undertake longer journeys or tackle more demanding tasks without frequent recharging.

It's worth noting that the Heybike Hauler is available in single-battery and dual-battery versions, providing customers the flexibility to choose the configuration that best suits their specific needs and usage scenarios. 


Now let's unpack the differences and see how they impact your riding experience.


Both CycWagen and Hauler are equipped with a 750W rear hub motor and can reach a top speed of 28 MPH. However, the Hauler stands out with its ability to produce up to 80Nm of torque with a 1400W peak output, compared to the CycWagen's 72Nm torque and 1000W peak power.


Here's where the CycWagen truly shines. With two high-capacity UL-2849 certified batteries, combined for a substantial 1200Wh total, riders can expect a maximum range of up to 120 miles. In contrast, the Hauler offers a maximum range of 55 miles on a single battery and 85 miles with a dual-battery setup, .


Both bikes offer front suspension forks, but the CycWagen goes further with 50mm of travel and lockout. This translates to a more comfortable ride, especially when tackling rough terrain.


Unlike cadence sensors, the CycWagen features torque sensors that provide electric assistance proportional to the rider's effort. These sensors detect changes in effort, allowing the bike to accelerate smoothly from a standstill

    Benefits of Torque Sensors in a Cargo E-Bike

    • Smooth and Responsive Assistance: Torque sensors provide electric assistance proportional to the rider's pedaling effort, resulting in a more natural ride with better control and stability, especially when carrying heavy loads.
    • Improved Efficiency and Range: Delivering power based on the rider's effort ensures efficient motor use, leading to better battery management and extended range.
    • Enhanced Riding Comfort: Torque sensors provide seamless power transition, reducing jerky movements and making the ride more comfortable, especially important for e-bikes carrying delicate items or passengers.
    • Better Performance on Inclines: Torque sensors detect increased effort on hills or acceleration, providing additional power when needed most, making it easier to navigate inclines with heavy cargo.
    • Safety and Stability: The immediate response of torque sensors enhances stability by providing consistent power delivery, crucial for transporting heavy or unbalanced loads.

    Performance Analysis: Built for Heavy Hauling

    Now that we've compared features, let's see how these translate to real-world performance.

    • Speed: Both bikes have a top speed of 28 mph – a significant boost for timely deliveries and efficient hauling.
    • Range: The CycWagen stands out with its extended range, making it ideal for extensive delivery routes or long errands without the constant worry of recharging.
    • Terrain Adaptability: Both bikes feature 20”x3” fat tires, perfect for various terrains. However, the CycWagen's torque sensor ensures a smoother and more natural riding experience, especially when navigating hills and uneven surfaces. This makes it easier to transport heavy loads without compromising stability.

    At a competitive price of $1,499.99, the CycWagen is a cost-effective option that provides a reliable, powerful, and comfortable riding experience, regardless of terrain or distance.
