The ultimate in low-maintenance urban cycling, the URB range combines simple, sleek aesthetics with everyday practicality. At the heart of the URB 8.9 is a light-weight 6061 aluminium frame and tapered carbon fork that helps absorbs those inevitable road imperfections. The frame's geometry also ensures that the rider's position is balanced to accommodate head-up visibility while maintaining that all-important pedalling efficiency, meaning no wasted effort.
A Gates Carbon Belt Drive turns an 8 Speed Shimano Nexus internal gear hub, which is an almost maintenance-free package. The belt drive requires no lubrication, so no grease marks on your legs or clothing and will not rust, ever! So can handle year-round riding with ease. Brakes are Shimano's excellent MT-201 hydraulic disc, which deliver dependable and easily controlled stopping power come rain or shine. 32mm Vittoria Randonneur Tech tyres offer a great blend of grip, durability and puncture protection whilst minimising maintenance issues further.
The URB's contact points have also been given careful commuting consideration, with the lock-on grips and saddle made from our durable Urban Canvas material to shrug off knocks and scrapes. Mounts for full mudguards and a pannier rack mount mean the URB can quickly adapt to wetter weathers and carry luggage.
- Stylish aluminium frame and full carbon tapered fork designed for a fast and efficient ride, without compromising comfort or heads up visibility
- Shimano Nexus 8 speed hub gear and Gates belt-drive means no chain cleaning or adjusting derailleurs – ultra-easy, low maintenance riding
- Shimano MT-201 hydraulic disc brakes deliver powerful and easily controlled braking in any condition
- Mudguard and rack mounts make the URB a practical year-round ride
