“If you’re using URB-E to work outdoors, the battery provides enough juice to charge a MacBook five times or an iPhone 40 times over, and it can charge up to five devices at once.”
“I had a blast nipping around the Engadget trailer, standing up on the pedals and scooting past bemused colleagues.”
“Considering a Boosted Board will run you somewhere between $999 and $1,599, the new URB-E is actually a pretty great deal if you’re in the market for an urban mobility device.”
“This foldable electric scooter features a USB port for charging all its user’s smart devices at once, and is lightweight and compact enough to carry on a bus or train.”
“The URB-E Sport is a revolutionary, folding electric scooter that provides a new way to travel in this congested urban community.”
Auto World News
“It’s a faster way to get around than walking or taking a car. I was really zipping by cabs when it was like standstill gridlock traffic.”
“Las ventajas [del URB-E] son multiples y existe una diversidad de ganadores, ya que es menos en dinero que se gasta en el vehículo, combustible y seguro y que se esta contribuindo evitar la contaminación y el trafico.”
“It’s way fun. The URB-E moves through a crowd in a bubble of astonished murmurs.”
The Wall Street Journal
“It’s the first foldable e-vehicle—with the comforts of a bicycle—that goes up to 20 miles on one charge. That’s why it’s no surprise that URB-E won the 2014 CES Verge Award.”
“We all want to imagine that the vehicle of the future is a solar-powered flying car … But there’s a more pragmatic alternative already on the market today that clues us into what’s coming next for transportation.”
The Huffington Post
“The advanced lithium battery technology is now leading the way in a super-quiet, super-light electric bike revolution.”
“I’ve never had as many smiles, thumbs up, and so many conversations as soon as people saw it.”
“There is just something about going bicycle speed without pedaling that makes you feel like you’re the first one on your block with a jet pack.”
“When URB-E’s designers say that it quickly folds, they mean really quickly. I was able to compress the bike in less than a second, with a simple tug of the seat. Deployment is just as fast.”
“The URB-E is a model of structural efficiency. Like an ultralight aircraft, there is nothing on it that isn’t holding it together or moving it down the sidewalk.”
“You get a lot of looks — a lot — this is not something that people have seen before. It is a real head-turner. Aside from all the attention you get, the ride is relatively smooth, quiet and comfortable.”
“In a converted wedding dress shop/tobacco store in Pasadena, California, 22 skilled innovators are developing and building lightweight, foldable electric scooters.”
“Making a product such as URB-E requires a fresh idea, adaptability and strong leadership.”
“While a range of mobility gadgets for city residents has emerged in recent years — from electric skateboards to hoverboards and scooters — the URB-E stands out with its unique appearance.”

They are our FREEDOM machines
Laura Gail Batchelor
We are so thrilled to have our two URB-Es! Everyone comments on the quality of the construction and design. The precision tooling in aircraft aluminium is beautiful. It looks like jewelry. It is the perfect size for getting around without having to resort to the car. We can’t wait to use it as our transportation to and from the boat, and being able to get around without being held hostage by bus schedules and exorbitant taxi rates. They are our FREEDOM machines!!! It’s impossible not to smile when we ride the URB-Es.
an amazing piece of engineering
I’ve had my URB-E for 2 weeks and it’s fantastic! It’s an amazing piece of engineering and a beautiful product. Easy to ride, easy to store at home and in the car. Thanks URB-E team and keep up the good work!
