fun to ride and looks cool
Maria Johnson Velasquez
There’s nothing else like the URB-E experience through the city. It’s fun to ride and looks cool, too!
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!
this is a must have
My first stroll on my URB-E through the urban streets of Philadelphia was OFF THE HOOK. Please believe me, this is a must have, whether you live in a big city or in the suburbs.
going places has never been more fun
From the moment I first rode a demo model, I knew I had to have one. When I brought mine home, I’m not sure who was more excited, my daughters or me. From riding on the boardwalk at the beach to cruising around my neighborhood, going places has never been more fun. The only question that remains is when am I going to get a second one!
I F-ING LOVE MINE!!!
Best thing ever! I needed it for the commute to work and beyond. With a 20 mile range per charge the possibilities are endless. Makes me happy to be alive in a time with such amazing tech. Thanks so much guys. I F-ING LOVE MINE!!!
next level technology
This URB-E is next level technology.
I love how quick the ride is.
so impressed with my URB‑E
I live 2 miles from my office and I ride almost every day to and from work, a twelve-minute commute door to door. My daily ride is quick, comfortable, and a great way to see areas of my city I didn’t know existed. Plus, no parking charges or tickets for expired meters! I have been so impressed with my URB-E, not only in the function, but in the craftsmanship as well. This is not a cheaply built toy. This is machined aircraft aluminum, welded, wired and built to withstand heavy use while still looking beautiful.
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.
