The advantage of the Urban Arrow Shorty cargo bike is its maneuverability; Its front body of atypical shape which allows to embark a very large volume in reasonable proportions.
Offering a total volume of 150 liters, the crate has a removable interior partition that makes it easy to separate the items you are carrying, depending on their weight or fragility. You can optionally add a lockable cover with a lock.
The Shorty is powered by a powerful and reliable Bosch brand crank motor.
Three engine options are available to perfectly meet your needs and the topography of your region of residence:
Bosch Active Plus
This motor of 50Nm of torque and with a battery of 400Wh is perfect for cities on flat ground and medium loads. You can combine it with the choices with Roller brakes or hydraulic Disc Deore brakes
Ideal for sloping towns, hilly terrain and frequent heavy-load transport, this 65Nm motor is mated to a 500Wh battery and two-piston Disc Deore hydraulic disc brakes.
Bosch Cargo Line
Successor of the Bosch Performance CX motor, this 75 Nm motor with 500Wh battery is clearly the one you need if you are looking for mountain performance or if you regularly carry loads exceeding 100kg. Four-piston Disc Zee hydraulic brakes provide particularly efficient braking
Note that Bosch has developed an extremely practical online tool available in French to help you in your choice according to your use.
Depending on the engine choice, your cargobike will be equipped with an Envolio N380 Trekking (Active Plus) or Cargo (Performance and Cargo Line) speed controller. The two transmissions work perfectly with the Bosch motorization, and allow you to change gears continuously. No more jerks, deviations in pace, empty pedaling, unpleasant gears and squeaks.
Many accessories are available to optimize the Shorty model and adapt it to your use:
a lockable cover
a rear luggage rack
a crate cover
an adapter for a small child seat (9 to 36 months) inside the body
an adapter for a large child seat (3 to 6 years old) inside the body
a mounting bracket to fix the two aforementioned adapters
what are the advantages?
Not much longer than a classic city bike, as manoeuvrable as a scooter (less pollution and fuel costs), the Shorty offers an astonishing load capacity that adapts to all user profiles. A child or a dog will find their place perfectly, as will food products, valuables or work tools.
With its futuristic shape, the Urban Arrow Shorty electric cargo bike does not go unnoticed. It benefits from materials that are both robust and light. The frame is in aluminum and the body is in expanded polypropylene. Originally used in industry as an insulation and cushioning material, EPP is 98% air and only 2% hydrocarbon. Infinitely recyclable, it is therefore distinguished by its excellent carbon footprint.
