Here are some additional things to consider before purchasing the UrbanGlide Ultra:

  • Your budget: The bike costs $2,499, which is more expensive than some other e-bikes with similar features.
  • Your size: The bike is only available in two sizes (S/L), so make sure you choose the right one for your height.
  • Your needs: Do you need fenders and a rack for commuting? If so, you’ll need to purchase them separately.
  • Your terrain: The bike is best suited for paved surfaces, but the suspension seat post can handle some light off-road riding.
