Urtopia: The Ultra-Lightweight Carbon Fiber Smart E-Bike
A Hong Kong-based company has designed 「Urtopia」e-bike that comes with a sleek and modern design, a light frame, and AI voice control.
A special feature of the 「Urtopia」 is its frame made entirely of carbon, in which the seat tube merges into the saddle strut on the way to the bottom bracket. All cables and wires are laid inside the frame. Despite the electric drive, the futuristic bike should weigh just 13 kilograms. And even more amazing: 「Urtopia」 currently offers the bike for Europe on Indiegogo.com at a cost price of 1999 euros (all taxes included). Comparable carbon two-wheelers cost at least twice as much.
The 「Urtopia」 e-bike has 30-80 miles (50-130km) of range depending on the power mode. If you run out of juice, you have the option of removing the battery to charge wherever is most convenient. Perfect for stopping for lunch while it takes two hours to charge.
In terms of security, the e-bike implements a fingerprint locking system making you the sole rider. In addition, a movement alarm and GPS tracking system synced to the mobile app aid to protect your e-bike from theft.
As for safety, a built-in haptic feedback system alerts you to vehicles from behind via vibrations, and front and back LED lights to keep you and everything you face visible. You’ll also get updates on nearby road conditions via the smartbar.
