A bamboo bike represents the fusion of traditional bamboo handicrafts with modern composite materials.
A bamboo bike is an exclusive handcrafted product.
It cannot be industrialized or assembled automatically, every operation is made by hand. It makes every model unique and special.
URBAM bicycles are designed to be ready-to-ride at any time in any circumstances.
No flat tire as you are running late for work, no chain drop, no lights that run out of battery as night falls! We target 100% efficiency :
Safety has been critical in the design of Urbam bicycles.
Bamboo naturally dampens vibrations and shocks offering a smoother ride over bumps, holes or cobblestones and removing the need of a suspension fork.
Durable hardness and strength are guaranteed by drying and treating the bamboo tubes at high temperature.
A long lifetime is ensured by a core treatment against insects and fungus and a coating against UV rays.
The production of the URBAM bicycles is expected to create 7 jobs in a vietnamese village.
On top of this, URBAM will fund local welfare projects in Vietnam.
