Do your homework before cutting a check for the gadget of your dreams
“During my years in the ebike trading business, I learned that customers have their own unique idea of the perfect ebike design, and most cyclists have their own favorite bikes lying at home,” Eric Chow, UrbanX founder and CTO, told Digital Trends in an interview.
“So I thought, ‘Why not make a kit that is easy enough for anyone to install without any skills needed, that would help customers save their money, help the planet saves resources, and help the customer get their very special ebike to their own best taste?’”
UrbanX boasts 350 watts of power, a 20 mph top speed, and 30 miles of range on a single battery, according to the company.
Perhaps most impressive of all is the company’s claim that it takes just 60 seconds to attach the UrbanX.
“Simplicity is one of the key features that we emphasize from the beginning,” Chow said.
