Cycle 2 Work Schemes
Power up your commute
We work with a number of cycle scheme providers to help make the purchase of your new eBike and accessories more affordable. Cycle schemes allow you to make a tax-free purchase, saving up to 47%, by paying for the eBike and accessories out of your pre-tax salary. Better still, being a salary sacrifice scheme, the payments are taken out of your salary over an extended period (usually 12 months) meaning you get to spread the costs also!
Cycle to Work schemes can be processed by emailing us at email@example.com.
Who is this bike suitable for?
Nimble, versatile and yet incredibly powerful the Shorty is an excellent option for transporting cargo. With it being roughly the same length as a regular city bike, the Shorty’s load capacity surprises many.
Choose from either an Enviolo hub or a Shimano groupset or The Rohloff Speedhub 500/14 as gearing options. A box divider can separate compartments in the box, and a lockable hood effectively waterproofs the box.
With a maximum gross vehicle weight of 190kg, can take up to 150 litres of volume and 85kg max cargo weight, the Shorty is the ideal short utility vehicle. It is perfect for the urban multitasker and can be the solution for your valuable deliveries, much needed accessories or working equipment.
About the Shorty
The Urban Arrow Shorty is a compact ride with big ambitions. It’s futuristic shape, defined by the expanded polypropylene (EPP) box, makes it a real eye catcher.
With the option to choose from four motors (Bosch Active Line Plus, Performance Line, Performance Line CX and Cargo Line motor) and with the option to upgrade to a 500Wh (and even DualBattery configuration) you can go for the bike that matches your geographical and performance needs.
The Shorty can carry up to 150 litres of volume in its box, and 190kg of maximum vehicle weight. And if you add the optional hood, you maximise the bike’s insulating potential, essentially transforming the cargo space into the lockable trunk.
What the expert says
‘The Shorty is a brilliant compact, large volume cargo bike. Capable of carrying up to 150 kg, it's a great weapon in the arsenal for those who run inner city tasks.’
‘Overall, I have to say this is quite the machine: it's smooth and comfortable to ride, easy to pilot, offers a truly insane cargo capacity in an easy-to-ride balance.’
Key Features & Equipment Options
This is the lightest Urban Arrow out there. Don't let its weight fool you though because it packs quite a nice punch. It's fast, agile and can carry a lot more than you think, which is why we call it a compact giant.
The Shorty's box is flexible in use: you can easily bring your child or dog on a trip through the city - or on a quick escape out of town. The accessory range for the Shorty is growing steadily. Add the lockable hood and transform this bike into the ultimate courier bike. If that's not versatile, please show us what is.
Dual Battery option
You can configure your Shorty to have a DualBattery configuration, meaning you get double the juice and triple the pleasure. It will give you twice the range and guarantee you more staying power, whatever your journey.
Bosch Motors and Batteries
Choose from from the following options: the Bosch Active Line Plus, including 50Nm of torque and 270% pedal assistance along with a 400Wh battery; the Bosch Performance Line motor with 65Nm of torque and 300% pedal assistance and a 500Wh battery or the Bosch Cargo Line motor with 400% pedal assistance and a 500Wh battery.
Enviolo gearing option
Enviolo's continuous gearing is completely internalised, away from the dirt, meaning the gears will last longer, with less maintenance over time. The Cargo Hub enables greater material strength and allows heavy duty applications up to an unprecedented 250kg permissible vehicle weight and 500Wh nominal power, also suitable for industrial use.
Choose your brakes
The motor you choose for your Shorty determines the brake type. The Active Line Plus motor comes with a choice between the Shimano Rollerbrake or Deore disc brake. The Shimano Deore and Zee are hydraulic disc brakes which both have an impressive stopping power. Urban Arrow pairs two-piston Deore brakes with the Performance Line motor and four-piston Zee brakes are paired with the Cargo Line motor.
Box divider & lockable hood
The deep Shorty box, which can carry up to 150 litres of volume, can be easily divided into two separate compartments. Urban Arrow have designed the divider to function as a partition between fragile and regular packages, or cold and hot storage. The hood elevates the Shorty from great to excellent. It effectively waterproofs the box. As a bonus, you also get to lock your cargo compartment. This will come in handy on your delivery rounds.
With a 26” rear wheelbase and 20” front wheelbase, the Urban Arrow Shorty is perfectly balanced to allow for you to concentrate on what matters most, getting from A to B. Schwalbe Big Apple Plus tyres provide excellent stability in the rain and protection from punctures.
