Battery Colors, Free Upgrades & ComingSoon-Tech.com Winners

1 like

  

Thank you for all your support to date! We wanted to pass along a quick update to announce a few free upgrades we will be unlocking for our Kickstarter campaign. We’d also like to notify everyone who participated in the ComingSoon-Tech.com prelaunch influencer program of our winners, and to share a few recent press features on UrbanX. Please remember to share our campaign with your family and friends, so they can join us in producing the easiest and most affordable E-bike solution on the market.

  

UPGRADE #1 - BATTERY + SPOKE COLOR OPTIONS  

 

We've noted a few questions regarding our available battery colors. We’ve decided to make our battery available in both the Blue you see on the page, and in Matte Black. Our spokes will be available in Black and Silver. We will send you a survey for what color spokes and battery you would like in advance of delivery. Stay tuned for images of the different options.  

 

UPGRADE #2 - USB CHARGING PORT  

  

 

We’ve equipped our battery with a convenient USB charging port to let you charge all your devices. You can plug in while the battery is still on your bike, or take it with you to act as a high capacity power bank. The battery will charge an iPhone 7 from empty to full up to 17 times!  

 

UPGRADE #3 - SMARTPHONE MOUNT  

   

 

Our Smartphone mount, free with all UrbanX purchases, is a great way to view your maps and ride data, use navigation, or use the UrbanX app to change your speed settings. It also has a USB port to keep your smartphone fully charged.

   

  

  

For all of those who requested our launch invitation to the UrbanX Kickstarter Campaign on ComingSoon-Tech & participated in the Influencer Program, we are proud to announce the winners above!  

We will reach out to the winners by email. Thank you to everybody who participated!

   

  

SEE WHAT THE EXPERTS ARE SAYING  

Check out a few recent articles featuring the UrbanX Electric Wheel:

   

Digital Trends has written up UrbanX twice. They loved the fact that “UrbanX lets you own an electric bike without compromising on design,” and said “No electric bike? No problem.”

CNET interviewed our founder, Eric Chow, and put together a great writeup on the UrbanX. They loved the affordability of the UrbanX, and said “Instead of spending a whole chunk of change on a new electric bike, why not convert your current boring non-powered one for cheap?”

The writers at designboom place a high value on aesthetics, and they love that UrbanX lets you keep your own bike that you love. They note that while “ebikes and smart bikes can compromise aesthetic for better functionality, the urbanX combines both into a device that adds just 15 LB of extra weight onto your bike.”

GrindTV took note of the UrbanX campaign, impressed with our ease of install, excellent aesthetics and low price.
