New electric bike from UrbanMover

Purists will scoff while hill-haters rejoice

If you’ve been looking for a city bike equipped with an electric motor to take the strain out of uphill stretches then the UrbanMover UM36 might just fit the bill.


The electric motor on this mountain bike look-alike is capable of propelling the machine at speeds of up 15mph and covering a maximum distance of 30 miles when fully charged.

The UM36 costs £929 and is available from
