URB-E is a folding electric transporter designed to slash appreciable time from your walking commute without hogging up so much space it prohibits you from using additional forms of transportation when it's with you. Bonus feature: URB-E won't blow up at your feet. Weeeee!

Crafted from start to finish in California , the URB-E scooter consists of a 6061 aluminum and carbon fiber frame fitted with a 36V li-ion battery, 250W brushless motor, and cross-drilled rear disc brake. It can roll along at up to 15 MPH over 20 miles on a single charge.

Even better, when you need to hop on a bus, grab an Uber, or park it in a coffee shop, URB-E accordions vertically into itself, folding to about the size of a medium roller bag. You can then pull it as you would a piece of luggage. Total weight is 35 pounds for relatively easy hefting into a trunk or storage compartment.

URB-E positions riders' center of gravity much lower to the ground than a standard bicycle or standing personal transporter, which the company says make it much easier and safer to ride. It also has a built-in suspension system and butt-molded seat for comfort.
