The Erban




The ride comfort of this light-weight, stylish commuter really has no comparison. It is striking to look at and a joy to ride on rough city streets. When people stop you to learn more about it you can tell them it’s made from a high-strength bamboo that has similar properties to alloy steel yet the thick, cellulose walls dampen street vibration incredibly well.
