Urtopia is excited to announce the launch of its full-carbon e-bike, an affordable e-bike with many advanced features set to revolutionize the future of the industry. After a successful two-month crowdfunding campaign that raised $3 million, it will soon be ready for purchase on Urtopia’s official website. Urtopia stands for New Urban Utopia, a global community where biking enthusiasts lead an active lifestyle empowered by innovative products. The company’s first product as presented below is designed to meet a wide range of cycling needs including commute, exercise, leisure, etc.
“Urtopia carbon e-bike allows you a more efficient and sustainable way of travel,” says Owen Zhang, CEO of New Urtopia Holdings HK Limited. “As a new brand, we hope our products can encourage riders to come back to the outdoors, and get rid of fatigue from sedentary urban routines in a post-pandemic era. Urtopia helps customers to enjoy a healthy life with friends and family, and find their own New Urban Utopia. We hope one day, they will proudly say, ‘I’m not riding an e-bike. I’m riding an Urtopia.'”
The defining features of Urtopia’s s first e-bike boast full carbon fiber components, smart technology, and groundbreaking design.
Different from many heavy-looking e-bikes on the market, the Urtopia e-bike makes use of carbon fiber not only in the frame and front forks but also in the handlebar and Seatpost, resulting in a super-lightweight of only 14 kg / 30 lbs. which makes it easy to be carried around for most adults. Traditionally reserved for high-end racing bikes, carbon fiber provides stiffness and strength a few times higher than steel at only a fraction of the weight. This lower density means the Urtopia e-bike absorbs road vibration effectively, which translates into a more comfortable ride, especially when all major structural components are made of carbon fiber.
In addition to its proprietary motor control and clutching mechanism that provide smooth riding; Urtopia e-bike brings a unique experience with advanced Internet of Things (loT) technology. The central control is a sophisticated handlebar that has an on-board computer; a dot-matrix LED display, a GPS/eSIM module, a voice-recognition system, a fingerprint sensor etc. Fondly called the Smartbar, it offers never-before-seen functions on an e-bike such as Al voice control, retro display, OTA firmware upgrade, and haptic interaction, among other already state-of-the-art ones like stand-alone GPS tracking, fingerprint unlock, and StVZO-compliant headlight.
To complement the smart handlebar, there is also the safety feature called ARES, which stands for Advanced Rear Early-indication System. It s comprised of a bright red position light, a millimeter-wave radar to avoid collision from behind, and a pair of projection lights that indicate turning directions.
Along with sensors such as accelerometer, gyroscope, and torque sensor; the above tech features differentiate Urtopia e-bike from any others on the market; and are integrated to offer a rider the extra benefits of connectivity, security, and safety.
Never has a startup e-bike company put so much emphasis on design than Urtopia. The company believes that design is an essential part of innovation; and has never ceased pushing the frontier of e-bike design from the beginning. Its dedication has not only attracted top designers from Apple; but also multiple-award-winning product designer Mathis Heller; whose most famous works include the BMW I Series and Siemens ICE 3 high-speed train. His design of the Urtopia e-bike’s frame is inspired by the Mobius strip which symbolizes infinity and endless connection; coinciding with Urtopia’s vision of creating a green and sustainable future with infinite possibilities for all.
The feature-rich Urtopia carbon e-bike appeals to a lot of people; including top-notch athletes such as NBA legend Tracy McGrady, 2021 Olympic kayaking gold medalist Max Lemke; 3x Olympic swimmer Philip Heintz, and 5x German triathlon champion Franz Loeschke; who have all publicly expressed their enjoyment of the prototype version. Their full endorsement echoes with the feedback from more than 1300 crowdfunding backers; who marvel at Urtopia’s s innovation in both technology and design, and its ability to put together such a product at a price half of its closest competitors.
Urtopia Carbon E-Bike, available in 2 models (US and EU, differing in speed limits and eSIM modules). Each model comes in 3 color patterns (Classic, Rainbow, Silver Gray) and 2 sizes (Medium and Large for rider height 165-200cm) with max load-bearing of 110kg (bike excluded).
New Urtopia Holdings HK Limited is a startup company led by biking lovers who happen to be tech-savvy; and believe that an active, healthy, and sustainable lifestyle can be achieved by innovations. Many of the company’ s employees have engineering degrees from top schools such as the Ivy League and MIT. Headquartered in Hong Kong, the team aims to bring revolutionary e-bikes to the global market and helps reshape the future of biking. For more information, please visit Urtopia’s official website.
