Warm, sustainable and durable natural materials.
he material that most people probably associate with the Christiania bike is wood, and there are many good reasons for this. Wood is a renewable, recyclable, strong, warm and durable material. For Christiania Bikes, it has always made the most sense to transport children in natural and sustainable materials. Therefore, our purchases of wood are exclusively from sustainable FSC-certified sources.
Christiania Bikes purchases thousands of tons of m2 of timber a year, and it is therefore important that our purchases are responsible and affect the forests in a positive direction. Thus, Christiania Bikes helps to ensure that forest ecosystems are maintained and biodiversity is improved.
In addition to wood, as the primary material, a balanced distribution of two types of metals is used. Steel has always been a significant part of the components that cargo bikes from Christiania Bikes are composed of. Steel has a high strength and is therefore used as a material for the components that are affected with the greatest loads in the construction. Christiania Bikes uses chromoly steel, which has a very good strength-to-weight ratio and significantly stronger than standard steel. Along with steel, aluminum is also used in the construction, which thereby gives the cargo bike a light, balanced and strong construction.
