German luxury leather goods company MCM has collaborated with electric bicycle builder Urwahn to create a special edition e-bike celebrating 45 years in business. The Urwahn x MCM Urban E-Bike features a unique copper-plated frame with a brass front plate, grips, and bespoke wheels. Only 50 examples of this special edition e-bike will be built for the world market.
The Urwahn x MCM Urban E-Bike is based on the Platzhirsch model. Urwahn is known for its 3D-printed steel frames and its unique, curved seat stay that splits into two. This design feature is intentional to help absorb road vibrations and provide a better ride. It is powered by a MAHLE rear wheel hub motor producing 29.5 (40Nm) lb.-ft of torque. The 250Wh lithium battery is removable and located inside the e-bike down tube. The Urwahn E-Bike can deliver an expected maximum range of 50 miles (80km) on a full charge. It offers riders a top speed of 16 mph (25 km/h) when using motor-assisted power. Urwahn does offer a range extender that mounts to the bike’s bottle cage.
Other standard features include Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, a Brooks Cambium saddle, LED lighting, and Continental Grand Prix street tires. As one would expect, this e-bike is lightweight, with a curb weight of around 31 pounds in its medium size. The Urwahn x MCM Urban E-Bike, while limited, are available now.
