Summary of Reviews

We have read all expert and user reviews on the Specialized Globe Haul ST. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

17 reasons to buy

  • The Haul is small... but capable.
    At just over 5ft long it’s easy for city-dwellers to store.
  • This mighty mote can haul a 419lb payload. Testers see it as a very real replacement for short car trips.
  • The Globe Haul ST comes with a rear rack, full fenders and a staunch front rack mount. It's made to carry a slew of proprietary racks and rigid panniers.
  • Owners can attach a proprietary passenger seat with a payload of one human, up to 88 lb.
  • It’s versatile: working for short trips loaded up, commuting, work, family jaunts & adventure.
  • This is a Class 3 e-bike that can reach a maximum of 28 mph.
  • The motor activates quickly, but due to the use of a torque sensor, there’s none of that on/off lurch that’s common to many hub-motor bikes.
  • Specialized claims this big 772Wh battery supplies up to 60 mi of range on one charge. A tester did 35 mi, using only ⅔ of the battery.
  • Should you want to have a bath with the Globe battery, rest assured it’s IPX7 rated (meaning it can be submersed for 30mins in 3ft of water).
  • The Globe Haul ST is offered at an affordable price.
    One tester deemed it, “an incredible value.”
  • With triple eyelets on its steel fork, the Haul is ready to strap on cargo for… bikepacking?
  • A highly adjustable stem and extra-long telescopic seatpost ensure the Haul will fit riders from 4’5” to 6’4”!
  • The Haul’s aesthetic is supercute. Every reviewer emphasizes how fun this little rig is, calling it “smile-inducing”.
  • Specialized’s hydraulic disc brakes feature 203 mm rotors and are “extremely powerful”, according to one tester.
  • Rotund 3.5” Carless Whisper tires provide compliance and comfort over a variety of terrain.
  • Reviewers say there’s plenty of range in microSHIFT’s 11-36t 9-speed drivetrain.
  • Specialized offer a lifetime warranty on the Haul’s frame and 2-years on electrics.

6 reasons not to buy

  • There’s no suspension. Tire pressure must be tuned-in to avoid a harsh ride.
  • The Globe Haul is a husky boy. This is 77 lb of raw e-bike, ungarnished.
  • A throttle is not included‽ It’s aftermarket.
  • A tester says the proprietary panniers can rattle on rough roads.
  • Due to the Haul being one-size-fits-all, some compromises are made on geometry for taller riders.
  • A reviewer said they felt the Haul’s seating position sits a little far back than is optimal.

Bottom line

‘ST’ stands for ‘Short Tail’. But don’t get the Globe Haul ST wrong. There’s no height complex here. Just a highly versatile, short-tail cargo bike with integrated options to attach proprietary racks, panniers and a passenger seat. It’s made to haul anything you can think of, up to 419 lb. This includes another human on the back rack. It has micro-fat 3.5” tires on 20” wheels to keep the bike small, agile and with a low center of gravity. To top it off, it’s affordable (yes, this is a Specialized…) It features a telescopic seatpost to accommodate riders from 4’5” to 6’4”. Testers do say that this leads to some geometry compromise at the top end. Additionally, it weighs 77 lb, so I hope your apartment building has an elevator. It’s well-built, supercute, priced right and ultra-versatile. Only time can test the Haul’s durability, but it’s versatility is undeniable; for work, shopping or family duties.

Specialized Globe Haul ST Review

We highly recommend the Haul ST if you’re looking for a user-friendly cargo bike that can do the heavy lifting of replacing some car trips with a small footprint. The bike offers great ride quality, tremendous range, and versatility; it’s also fun to ride. If you need to haul more than one passenger the Haul will not be the right bike for you.
