Urban Arrow hit the scene and essentially reinvented the cargo bike for the 21st century. They went back to the drawing board and came up with a fresh, new, modular design that can work in three distinct formats. Made from lightweight materials and built with an uncompromising attention to detail, the series of bikes that they have produced are as safe and easy to use as they are practical. By partnering up with German electrical specialists Bosch, Urban Arrow enhanced their creation with the addition of a mid-motor e-assist option. Polishing the bikes off with host of A-grade components shows that they are taking a ‘quality-first’ approach without cutting any corners.
Urban Arrow Mission Statement
With our electric cargo bikes, we want to make the city a greener and quieter place. We also want to make attractive and high quality cargo bikes that use the newest technology and state of the art materials to move people and things through town in the fastest possible way. By doing so we aim to reduce the use of scooters, cars, and other motor vehicles. And not just in the Netherlands; our goal is to make the best cargo bikes in the world! That’s why today we are already doing business in 11 countries.
Urban Arrow Ambition
It goes without saying that we are continuously developing, testing, and improving our bicycles and accessories to make the cycle experience as satisfactory as possible. In 2010 and 2013 this resulted in 2 international awards.
Still, we can always do better. That’s why Urban Arrow works with the ‘open source’ principle. This means that we are open to students, bicycle fans, and dealers providing us with feedback and ideas that will help us to improve our products. So, if you have an idea that can help improve our products, we’d love to hear from you!
The modular frame design allows for different front frames attached to the firm and sturdy rear frame. So it is possible to configure multiple models: in addition to the current long transport bike (Cargo) Urban Arrow has a shorter electric two-wheeled transport bike (Shorty). Urban Arrow stands for Smart Urban Mobility!
