Crowded streets, high parking costs and rising fuel prices mean that fewer and fewer city dwellers are traveling by car. But what is the alternative? For many, it is the classic bicycle. The bicycle is currently experiencing a huge boom in urban areas. E-bikes in particular are becoming increasingly popular. Urtopia is a prime example of this. The Chinese start-up now offers an impressive product portfolio. The models not only score points with a powerful motor, but above all with pioneering smart features. Thanks to the use of carbon, the manufacturer’s flagship models are also light as a feather, thus eliminating a real Achilles heel of other e-bikes. For Black Friday, these modern bikes are now available with an attractive discount of up to 600 euros.

Urtopia Carbon One: The flagship
When we were allowed to test ride the Urtopia Carbon One(test), we were very enthusiastic. After all, this modern e-bike scores on so many levels. Firstly, there is the choice of material that gives it its name. The manufacturer has opted for ultra-light carbon. Unlike many other bikes, however, the modern carbon fiber is not only used for certain components of the e-bike. Instead, the frame, fork, handlebars and seat post are all made of the material. This can also be seen on the scales. At just under 14 kg, the e-bike is one of the lightest on the market. Apart from the low weight, you also benefit from other advantages. The stiffness is many times higher than that of steel. This results in a high level of riding comfort, which is also reflected in the fact that vibrations caused by uneven roads are skillfully absorbed.
Urtopia combines modern materials to create a unique design. The saddle seems to float in the air. But it’s not just the looks that are right. The Urtopia Carbon One is also undoubtedly at the cutting edge of the e-bike market in terms of technology. Here you get a 250 watt motor that supports you with a total of 5 power levels up to a speed of 25 km/h. A modern Gates Carbon Drive belt drive is used, which scores with low maintenance. The modern sensor package ensures a great riding experience. The bike is equipped with an accelerometer, gyroscope and torque sensor. The latter, for example, ensures that the motor reacts as quickly as possible.
Safety is ensured not only by the reliable hydraulic disc brakes, but also by the pioneering lighting system. While there is a powerful LED light at the front, the rear light not only scores with the same luminosity. There is also a projector that acts as a turn signal for your bike. Your turning direction is projected onto the ground as an arrow. The central control unit is the display, which is installed in the middle of the handlebars. Here you get a modern dot matrix LED display that shows important status information. The whole thing is rounded off with smart features such as voice control, ChatGPT support, a fingerprint sensor for unlocking and a comprehensive app connection.
Urtopia Carbon 1s: For mountain bikers
The “S” in the name can be interpreted in different ways. The term Sport certainly fits here. Why? While the Carbon One relies on an automatic transmission, the Carbon 1s allows you to shift gears manually. This not only ensures that you can travel at breakneck speed in the city. It also makes uphill and downhill rides much more comfortable. But all this comes at a price.
At 15.8 kg, the bike is a little heavier than the Carbon One due to the advanced shifting technology. However, this is certainly not really noticeable in practice. The gearbox is a different story. This is not a Gates Carbon Drive belt drive, but a derailleur system. However, if you like sporty rides through urban terrain with uphill and downhill sections, you will certainly be happy to accept this.
Urtopia Chord and Chord X: The people’s e-bike
Carbon One and Carbon 1s have too many bells and whistles for you? Then perhaps the Urtopia Chord or Chord X are the perfect models for you. The difference between the two models lies in the frame shape. Here again, you get a classic design with a continuous seat post. This is available in either black or white. There is also freedom of choice when it comes to access. In addition to a low entry (Chord X), there is also a high entry (Chord). The frame is not ultra-light carbon, but even without carbon fiber, this bike is by no means heavy.
According to the manufacturer, it weighs 21 kg. This means it can be carried a few meters if necessary. However, the classic design and choice of materials in no way means that you are being offered an old-fashioned piece of technology. After all, Urtopia also offers a comprehensive technology package here. This starts with the stylish display and the fingerprint sensor. The latter is an active anti-theft device. The modular concept should also be praised. After all, it’s not just the software that can be upgraded at any time thanks to OTA updates. You can also upgrade the hardware. This ensures that you can enjoy your bike for as many years as possible.
With the help of GPS and eSIM, you even get a navigation function on the compact display. Thanks to the app connection and GPS, you’ll never lose sight of your Urtopia Chord. Forgot where you parked your e-bike? No problem! Take a look at the app and a map will show you where your bike is. Conversely, you can locate your e-bike if a thief has stolen it. Integrated Bluetooth speakers, blinker system, voice control and pioneering vibration technology in the handlebars round off the e-bike’s modern features.
