The Story Of Our Cargo Bikes
The name BLACK IRON HORSE is inspired by the 18th century tavern “Sorte Hest”, located nearby our current workshop. It is here that blacksmith Lars Leikier developed the original Sorte Jernhest cargo bike. Finally, Lars unveiled his innovative design to the world in 1998 after two years of development.
The design offers revolutionary rear-wheel steering with up to 180 degree turns and unmatched stability. Thanks to Lars, maneuverability is no longer determined by the weight of the cargo.
Fast-forward to today, BLACK IRON HORSE is continuing to modernize the original design to make it even more easy and safe to ride.
