Product Information

 
More info

THE-URBAN xC1 is a latest series electric scooter made by THE-URBAN brand (Walberg Urban Electrics GmbH). In addition to the fact that this scooter definitely offers a very good price/performance ratio, its most important benefit comes with its resistance to splashing water.

Like all other scooters made by this manufacturer, it features brakes on both wheels. At the front, you are assisted by an electric brake and at the rear by a mechanical disc brake. In addition to its low price, THE-URBAN xC1 model will convince you with its light weight and a very simple folding method. It weighs just 14 kg, which means that it is very practical and compact. The maximum load capacity of this scooter is 100 kg, same as with the #BRLN V2. Its range reaches some 25 km and that is why we rank it among scooters rather suitable for short routes around the city.

Use and practicality

This model is suitable for shorter routes and we recommend it for daily trips around the city over distances up to 12 km. The range may be 25 km, however it is influenced by multiple factors, such as road condition, inclination, rider weight and, last but not least, his/her riding style. We should keep in mind that fully discharging the battery has a significant negative impact shortening its serviceable life. If you are looking for a practical, reliable city scooter, you are at the right place. Hand in hand with low weight, the scooter’s other big advantage is its compact dimensions when fully folded, as this model allows easy and quick folding of the entire scooter. It is equally easy and intuitive to unfold it in a few seconds and make it ready for taking yet another unforgettable ride. With its weight of 14 kg, it is positioned very closely to the category of ultra-light scooters. You can easily carry it up the stairs or load it into a car or a tram. Thanks to its excellent compactness, you can take it with you folded to the office or restaurant where it will not bother anybody, which means you won’t have to leave it locked in the street. You can also easily fit it inside the trunk of a regular car with enough space left for other necessary luggage. When it comes to “practicality” topic, it is certainly necessary to mention that as one of the few scooters, it is resistant to splashing water. Meaning, in case of wet roads or light rain, you do not have to leave it resting at home.

Range, performance and safety

THE-URBAN xC1 is supplied with 36 V and 7.8 Ah battery, corresponding to 280.8 Wh of stored energy, and is capable of 25 km range per single charge. As we have already mentioned, it depends on circumstances that definitely include road condition, inclination, rider weight and, naturally, his/her riding style. That is why we would rather rely on slightly shorter routes not exceeding 20 kilometers. The scooter is driven by a motor installed directly in the front wheel, delivering maximum 500 W power (300 W sustainable), which is definitely enough for normal riding around the city. Charging the battery from 0 to 100% takes about 3 - 4 hours. The brakes on both wheels contribute to safer and reliable riding. Taking care of the rider are an electric mechanical brake at the front and a mechanical disc brake at the rear. With this model, you do not have to worry about wet roads or light rain as the scooter is resistant to splashing water. The road in front of you is clearly visible thanks to the scooter’s lighting system. At the same time, you are properly visible to other road users. The scooter features 8.5-inch, air-filled wheels, which is why we recommend avoiding large potholes to prevent a flat tire. At first, the air-filled wheels might seem this scooter’s weakness. However, the opposite is true as they represent an effective and reliable solution compensating for the lacking suspension.

Comfort and design

The scooter is produced in an interesting color combination consisting of a black frame jazzed up by small elements made in beautifully luminous yellow color. Unlike most of the models made by the Walberg Urban Electrics, the xC1 looks rather futuristic because of the square shape of the platform and the folding mechanism. The rear fender not only looks functional but it is precisely what it is. You can definitely throw away any fear of your pants or calves (in case of women) getting muddy while riding. The design looks simple but purposeful, underlining the lightness of the scooter itself. The design of the folding mechanism matches the rest of the scooter body and looks elegant. This model only offers 8.5-inch, air-filled wheels, but they do make riding the scooter comfortable. They help filtering out vibrations and bumps. However, you should rather go around any large potholes to avoid getting a flat front or rear tire. The low weight also contributes to comfort, thanks to which you can easily carry this scooter when necessary.

Our rating

We would start our rating by highlighting the truly low weight of this scooter. Weighing mere 14 kg, we rank it among extremely light scooters. Its primary intended use is in the urban environment where you can simply and effortlessly carry it up the stairs or even take it with you to the office or restaurant. You can easily fold this scooter in a few seconds and put it either into a car trunk or, for instance, under your desk. The high quality of used materials will convince you on the road and the eye-catching color finish will make you stand out and highlight your unique lifestyle. The main advantages of the scooter definitely include its resistance to splashing water. There are very few scooters out there that can “boast about” being splash-proof. Easy handling and a thumb lever control system make every ride fun and a genuine experience. The scooter has a practical kickstand, thanks to which it can stand on its own. You should keep in mind the scooter’s maximum range of 25 km. For longer distances, even around the city, we would definitely recommend considering buying some other model, such as Egret TEN V3 X. If you are on limited budget, or if you simply decided not to invest a ton of money, this model is surely a good compromise.

About the brand

The German company Walberg Urban Electrics has been selling THE-URBAN lifestyle brand since 2017. This is the “younger sibling” of the premium EGRET brand, which the company has been offering since 2012 and has already distributed more than 60 000 units. Its founder, Florian Walberg, started as an ordinary user of electric scooters. Based on his personal experience, he realised the huge potential of this new form of mobility. According to him, in the coming years the cities will have to adapt the roads and pavements in a new manner – shifting from internal combustion vehicles towards alternative mobility forms. The electric scooters, especially folding ones, can be easily combined with public transport or one’s own car. We completely agree with Florian on this. The EGRET and THE-URBAN brands are very popular, particularly in Germany, thanks to their German quality, reliability and stylish design.
