Review: UrbanGlide-Standard Step-Through Electric Bike


The UrbanGlide Standard isn’t just another e-bike; it’s a sleek, powerful machine that lets you navigate the urban jungle with ease and style. Whether you’re zipping to work, hitting the shops, or exploring hidden alleyways, the UrbanGlide Standard is your trusty steed.

Built for the Urban Grind:

  • Powerhouse Performance: A 500W brushless hub motor delivers exhilarating acceleration and effortless hill climbing. Say goodbye to sweat and hello to a smooth, breezy ride.
  • Marathon Mileage: Conquer your commute with a 690Wh battery that boasts a range of up to 65 miles. No more range anxiety, just pure freedom to roam.
  • Conquer Any Terrain: 80mm travel suspension fork absorbs bumps and cracks, while 180mm disc brakes ensure confident stopping power on any surface.

Comfort is King:

  • Effortless Entry and Exit: The step-through frame makes mounting and dismounting a breeze, perfect for riders of all ages and abilities.
  • Ergonomic Design: Every detail is crafted for comfort, from the cushioned seat to the adjustable handlebars. Glide through your day feeling relaxed and refreshed.
  • Intuitive Control: A clear, easy-to-read display lets you monitor speed, battery level, and other vital stats at a glance. Focus on the ride, not the controls.

Beyond the Basics:

  • Head-Turning Style: The UrbanGlide Standard isn’t just functional; it’s a head-turner. Available in three stunning colors (Remy Green, Lava Red, and Iron Gray), it’s sure to make a statement wherever you go.
  • Smart Connectivity: An optional app lets you track your rides, monitor bike health, and even lock your bike remotely. Stay connected and in control, even when you’re not riding.
  • Built to Last: Vanpowers backs the UrbanGlide Standard with a 2-year warranty on the frame and fork, and a 1-year warranty on the motor, battery, and other components. Ride with confidence, knowing you’re covered.

But is it Perfect?

No e-bike is perfect, and the UrbanGlide Standard has its quirks. It’s a bit on the heavy side at 68.34 lbs, and it doesn’t come with fenders or a rack, which you might need depending on your riding style. Additionally, the price tag of $1,999 might be a dealbreaker for some.

The Verdict:

The UrbanGlide Standard is an exceptional e-bike for urban commuters who prioritize power, comfort, and style. Its impressive range, powerful motor, and comfortable ride make it a joy to cruise around town. While the lack of fenders and rack might be a minor inconvenience, the overall package is undeniably impressive. If you’re looking for a stylish and capable e-bike to conquer the urban jungle, the UrbanGlide Standard is definitely worth a spin.
