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.
The Bosch Performance Line motor offers up to 300% pedal assistance and a punchy 65 Nm of torque, with the option to the DualBattery configuration doubling your battery potential. This is a cargo bike designed to match 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.
"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.

Box Divider & Lockable Hood
