What They’re Saying about URB-E at USC
It could really change the way we approach transportation
Not only is it fun and fast, people realize the potential for it. It could really change the way we approach transportation, especially on campus as the university continues to take out bike racks.
I couldn’t believe how easy it was
I use the URB-E on campus at USC. I couldn’t believe how easy it was to get to all of my classes on time last semester, if not early. Everyone deserves at least 15 minutes of extra sleep and that’s what you get and more with the URB-E.
I can bring my URB-E into class and my dorm
I never have to worry about my URB-E being stolen – unlike the bicycles that get left outside, I can bring my URB-E into class and my dorm. Especially since the URB-E has a removable key, I felt comfortable enough to leave it in the back of my classroom like a skateboard.
I go to the Row pretty often during the week, and this is the perfect way to get there. I can ride through all of the other bikes and speed past the pedestrians. I don’t even need to find bike parking! It’s dope.
Even with a bike, I could never have gotten my caffeine fix and back so fast.
During finals, I could zip from the philosophy library (it’s my favorite place to hit the books) to starbucks in like two minutes. Even with a bike, I could never have gotten my caffeine fix and back so fast.
I didn’t have to break a sweat to get where I needed to go
I found that I had more hours in my day, more time to do the things that I wanted to do, and I didn’t have to break a sweat to get where I needed to go.
I love taking my URB-E on the Metro
I love taking my URB-E on the Metro to get to Santa Monica from campus. I came to LA for the sun and the sand, and the URB-E lets me do that without having to pay for a $20 Uber!
“Its battery can charge your iPhone 40 times”
“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.”
“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.”
