WiFi stands for Wide Fit, and refers to the recent design updates to the frame, dropouts and wheels. Thru axles front and rear, 38mm wide rims and 55mm tyres. The WiFi bikes make easy work of pavement, rough roads, gravel, and cobblestones, giving you the freedom to ride wherever you want. The fast semi-slick tire tread still ensures a fast rolling speed, but more importantly increases grip, stability, and also reduces the risk of punctures.

Lightly loaded the Mini-Max WiFi it's as fast and fun as any other bike, but one that can carry a passenger if you feel like it. And after riding one for a while, you might start to see the world around you in terms of things that you can and can't fit on the rack safely - An oddly satisfying skill.

Unlike the Classic version, the WiFi frames are available in a range of sizes and colours, so you can get the bespoke fit and look that you want (subject to availability).

What OMNIUM say..

The Mini-Max WiFi is the middle child of the Omnium family. The main difference compared to the Cargo is the wheelbase. The bike and wheelbase is about 20cm shorter, which has a noticeable effect on handling. The shorter wheelbase makes the bike handle a bit more like a normal bike, resulting in a tighter turn radius and increased manoeuvrability.

The new Mini-Max WiFi has been optimized for 55mm (2.15″) tires front and rear. The list of benefits tied to bigger tires is long, but here’s a few we find important. High volume tires run at lower tire pressure, creating a significant layer of suspension between you and the ground. This results in far more comfort and control while riding on all surfaces, making easy work of rough roads, gravel, and cobblestones. The fast semi-slick tire tread design results in a minor rolling speed penalty, but more importantly increases grip, stability, and also reduces the risk of punctures.

The frame and fork have also been updated to take 15 x 100mm front and 12 x 142mm rear thru axles. Although thru axles were first seen on downhill mountain bikes in the late 90’s, most disc brake bikes these days use them. They make perfect sense on our cargo bikes. The axle bolts through a closed hole in the frame and fork, then through the hub, and threads directly into the dropout on the other side. Most importantly, this system increases stiffness, rigidity under braking and load, and reduces the risk of incorrect installation and disk brake rub.

The front rack is the same rectangle as the Cargo’s rack, just without the horns, while retaining extender bar compatibility.

The fact that the front wheel is positioned more in the middle of the rack means positives on the steering front, however the maximum hauling capabilities are slightly compromised. Hauling a very heavy load becomes a little more tricky, but definitely doable with a bit of skill. Loading the rack while on the kickstand can be difficult as the weight sits over top of the front wheel, as opposed to in the middle of the wheelbase on the cargo.
