The new era of bicycle.

The new Urban GC1, a very special bike.

La nueva Urban GC1, una bicicleta muy especial.

Amazing experience
Amazing experience

 

 

Unconventional materials, innovative design, special manufacturing process. Dedicated to use in the city. This bike will help you get to where you're going and you will also have a unique experience as you arrive at your destination.

Materiales poco convencionales, diseño innovador, proceso de fabricación especial. Dedicada para utilizarse en la ciudad. Esta bicicleta te ayudará a transportarte, pero también tendrás una experiencia única mientras llegas a tu destino.

Unique experience

Imagine telling your friends that you have the greenest bike in the world, that's part of an unparalleled experience. Pedaling and knowing that you are transported in paper, metal, rubber, plastic and polystyrene is something unique. Do not miss the opportunity and choose the color you like most.  

Imagina decirles a tus amigos que tienes la bicicleta más ecológica que existe, eso es parte de una experiencia inigualable. Pedalear y sentir que te transportas en papel, metal, caucho, plástico y poliestireno (unicel) es algo único. No desaproveches la oportunidad y elige el color que más te gusta.

 

Unique wheel design

Imagine that you are going down the street and you get a flat tire. You have to waste time to repair it and obviously it will cost you money. This will not happen with the new Urban GC1. Its tires are designed not to use air. Magic? No. It actually uses rubber, recycled plastic and our GC Panel. Thanks to a special metal structure the rim is very sturdy. The GC Panel, rubber and plastic, help to create the necessary shape of a tire and absorb the vibrations generated by the movement. This allows you to have a smooth ride, but without worrying about the air in your tires.  

Imagina que vas por la calle y algo pinchó tu llanta. Tienes que perder tiempo para que la reparen y obviamente te va a costar dinero. Esto no pasará con la nueva Urban GC1. Sus llantas están diseñadas para no utilizar aire. ¿Magia? No. En realidad utiliza caucho, plástico reciclado y nuestro GC Panel. Gracias a una estructura metálica especial la llanta se mantiene en excelente estado. El Panel, caucho y plástico ayudan a crear la forma necesaria de una llanta y absorben las vibraciones generadas por el movimiento. Esto hace que sientas un viaje suave, pero sin preocuparte por el aire en tus llantas.

 

GC Panel by Greencode. The protagonist of the Urban GC1

Using recycled kraft paper for a bicycle sounds somewhat unreliable... but it is not. Introducing the GC Panel a kraft paper panel developed by Greencode. The Urban GC1 is designed with hundreds of these panels.

Usar papel kraft reciclado para una bicicleta suena algo poco confiable… pero no lo es. Te presentamos el GC Panel. La Urban GC1 está diseñada con cientos de estos paneles.

 Reusable package ... yes, also the packing.

 We thougtht about  every detail. Eeven the packaging is reusable to avoid generating garbage. When you receive your package with the new Urban GC1, inside you will find a manual which  will guide you to turn the bicycle packaging into something useful. We are working on several ideas to make this feature better.  

Pensamos en cada detalle que incluso el empaque es reutilizable para evitar generar basura. Cuando recibas tu paquete con la nueva Urban GC1, dentro encontrarás un instructivo con el cual te guiaremos para que conviertas el empaque de la bicicleta en algo útil. Seguimos trabajando en varias ideas para que aproveches al máximo cada parte del empaque.

Smartphone ECOmount (free)

It is a simple accessory for your smartphone. The accessory is made of recycled kraft paper (the same that we use for the GC panel) and will help ensure you to don't  forget your smartphone (maybe outdoors, at school, in your work). Don't leave your smartphone in the floor or forget it while getting charged. And the best part: it's free!* 

Simple? Yes.

Useful? Very.

Es un accesorio para tu celular celular. Está hecho del mismo papel kraft reciclado que el que se utiliza para el GC Panel. Te ayudará para que no pierdas tu celular o lo dejes tirado cuando necesite batería (cuando sales, en la escuela o el trabajo). Y la mejor parte: Es gratis!*

Simple? Si.

Útil? Mucho.

 *Smartphone ECOmount is included for free in almost every rewards (except the Ebook). If you just need this ECOmount, you can select the dedicated reward (Smartphone ECOmount pack)

*El Smartphone ECOmount está incluido gratis en casi todas las recompensas (excepto el Ebook). Si solo necesitas este soporte, puedes elegir la recompensa dedicada (Smartphone ECOmount pack)

 

 Metas extentdidas

 

 

 

Just a little bit more of the Urban GC1:

 

The perfect match

GC Panel + Reusable metal = Perfect match. The GC Panel is very sturdy, however, it needs a perfect partner to create the new Urban GC1 and provide added security. Thanks to this structure, the user can go calmly on his bicycle and not worry about the reliability. The metal represents only a percentage of the bicycle (around 35%) and is 100% reusable.  

GC Panel + Metal reutilizable = Pareja perfecta. El GC Panel es muy resistente, sin embargo, necesita de su pareja perfecta para crear la nueva Urban GC1 y proporcionar mayor seguridad. Gracias a esta estructura, el usuario puede pasear tranquilo en su bicicleta y no preocuparse por algún inconveniente. El metal representa solo un porcentaje de la bicicleta (alrededor del 35%) y es 100% reutilizable.

                              

 

We know ... kraft paper and water do not get along. If it gets wet, it gets damaged, but not the Urban GC1. Since it uses recycled polystyrene paint (yes, even the paint is ecological)  water will not touch the paper and you can continue pedaling while it rains.

Lo sabemos… papel kraft y agua no se llevan bien. Si se moja, se daña. No en la Urban GC1. Ya que utiliza pintura a base de poliestireno (unicel) reciclado… si, hasta la pintura es ecológica. Esto permite que el agua no toque el papel y puedas seguir pedaleando mientras llueve.

Risks and challenges

Hello! Thank you for your time and for checking out our project. Fortunately the founders of Greencode are specialists in manufacturing, processes and automation. The manufacturing process is under development, however, there are situations where we could use more time. For example, if there is any delay by our suppliers or if we need to adjust the production process.
At Greencode we create amazing things and we need the best people on our team. Finding the right people may take time which could also delay the delivery of the Urban GC1.

Hola! gracias por tu tiempo y por analizar nuestro proyecto. Afortunadamente los fundadores de Greencode son especialistas en manufactura, procesos y automatización por lo que el proceso de manufactura está en desarrollo, sin embargo, podríamos retrasarnos por algún inconveniente por parte de nuestros proveedores o que alguna mejora que sea necesaria en todo el proceso de producción nos tome más tiempo del planeado.
En Greencode vamos a crear cosas asombrosas y para eso necesitamos a los mejores, es por eso que una posible causa de algún retraso en la entrega del producto es que no encontremos a las personas correctas para que sean parte de la familia Greencode.
