URB-E Saved Me!
By Amazon Customer on March 3, 2016
I absolutely love this product. After a tough foot surgery, I was looking for an easy way to get around campus (I’m a professor at a Graduate School). I constantly have meetings and walking across a large campus wasn’t an option. URB-E saved me! Little did I know when I purchased URB-E, for what I thought was a temporary solution, that it would it turn into my main mode of transportation. Instead of hassling with driving my car, dealing with finding parking, getting parking tickets from campus police, and wasting a lot of time, I simply jump on URB-E (grab a coffee at Peet’s) and ride straight to my office. Now when I have meetings on/off campus, I jump on my URB-E which saves me tremendous time/money/hassles. Plus, I get a ton of compliments on how cool I am! I designed some custom inserts myself – yes you can customize URB-E! I really can’t say enough about how well designed it is, how well built it is, how smooth it rides, and how much impact this product has had in my life. I feel like I’m doing something good for this planet and at the same time gaining so much by using URB-E. For me, personally, it’s been a game changer! My guess is you’ll see a ton of URB-Es on campuses everywhere! From the time I opened the beautiful box to now – this product has exceeded my expectations ten fold!
So fun! URB-Enthralled!
By Amazon Customer on December 14, 2015
My husband bought me the URB-E as a Christmas present but when I saw the box I had to open it right away ( since I had to sign for the delivery). The scooter was well packed and assembly was a matter of installing four bolts… It was that easy. Then of course, I had to take it for a spin. I LOVED IT! The ride was so smooth and comfortable even in the rain ( which it was raining when I took it for a spin). It was easy to maneuver and it felt really balanced. Also wanted to indicate that the customer service from URB-E was excellent. My husband received a call from the customer service rep AND the CEO of the company when he placed the order with Amazon. We highly recommend this scooter for those interested in a fun ride.
The Key to the City!
By Saraswati on March 2, 2016
So I was looking forward to something that could make my commute easier, throughout NYC.I was fortunate enough to have my mother test drive/ride it in Cali, her excitement over the phone sold me,she loved it! I still thought,it looked “cute!”. Cut to my taking it for a spin. As soon as I turned that throttle, it was like “engage!”. Far from cute I realized this was a “real machine”, a seriously well engineered piece of equipment. I no longer risk missing my train while looking for parking. Now even if train is arriving when I am, I simply fold it up (which is like doing a magic trick that’s always entertaining), and run up the stairs. Now that I’m really comfortable on it, you can now find my zipping through the city. No more crowded subways, I’m keeping that cab fare, not worrying about whether or not my bike is still locked up wherever I left it, and if its hot out I arrive at my destination without looking like I’ve just finished working out. I honestly now just find any excuse to ride it, because it’s so much fun. I also want to mention that the customer service is amazing, which definitely goes a long way.
I say I am definitely happy with my purchase, and have had a lot of fun customizing it as well. I have a cup holder, headlight, phone mount, bell, side mirror and a basket…what’s actually on it, depends on the day!
Most Incredible Product I’ve Ever Purchased!
By Hudson on March 6, 2016
What an amazing electric vehicle!!! It’s lightweight, portable and gets me quickly to wherever I want to go in the City without the hassles of traffic, gas or parking. It folds and unfolds in literally one second. You sit down, turn the throttle and off you go! The ride is super-comfortable. The battery lasts me many days of use (something like 20 miles). When it needs a charge, I just plug the battery into a regular socket and in less than four hours it’s fully charged. My hat is off to URB-E for coming up with such an innovative product.
I can’t get over the quality of this thing. I think consumers have gotten very cynical about low-quality products manufactured overseas. What drew me to URB-E is that it is made in Pasadena, California. That fact alone told me these guys care deeply about quality and not about finding the lowest-cost producer in some far-away country who cares not one bit about consumer experience or frustration. I am the type willing to pay more for a product that will last a lifetime. Frankly, if you are even thinking about purchasing an electric vehicle made overseas, my advice is to stop your search and just purchase an URB-E. I’ve searched high and low, and there is nothing in the market that is this good.
This vehicle exudes quality the moment you take it out of the box. It’s a stunning work of art. Aircraft aluminum, carbon fiber, sport-tuned throttle, rear-disc brakes, seat shock absorption system, etc., etc. The lines are all clean and the assembly is immaculate. It feels incredibly strong and durable. Not only is this beautifully designed, but there is some serious engineering talent that went into this product.
The proof, of course, is in the riding. I’ve ridden my URB-E practically everywhere for many months. NOT A SINGLE PROBLEM. I’ve ridden over curbs, through puddles, maybe pushed it farther than a normal rider should. AND STILL NOT A SINGLE PROBLEM. The acceleration is super quick from a standing start, the ride is as smooth as butter, and the vehicle can stop on a dime. Quiet and effortless. What more could I ask for from a personal electric vehicle?
Maybe the biggest problem is that wherever I go with my URB-E, folks gather. They can’t help themselves. It just draws a crowd. When I let them test-ride it, their eyes grow big and they can’t believe this thing exists. The next question from them, of course, is where to get one. It’s been fun being one of the first people to own one, but I think the secret is getting out very quickly. One of my nephews texted me the other day that he saw one zipping by in Penn Station in Manhattan. I guess they soon will be everywhere.
In any event, these guys have totally won me over with the innovation, quality and attention to detail that shines throughout the URB-E. I’m now a lifelong fan of this company and anything they produce. This is the way products should be made. Thank you, URB-E!!!
