Frame and Contact Points
Get ready to strum your air guitars and bang your heads, music enthusiasts! Today we're reviewing the Chord by Urtopia, an electric bike that hits all the right notes. With its rockin' Samsung Li-ion removable battery, pitch-perfect built-in navigation, and a symphony of other features, this bike will make your heart sing. And with an affordable price of $2,000, it won't have you busking on street corners just to afford this rad ride. For more electrifying reviews, waltz on over to ElectrifiedReviews.com.
Let's kick off this jam session with the motor. Nestled in the rear hub, this 36V 350W powerhouse is to your ride what a bassline is to a sick beat. With a torque of 45 nm, it'll have you cruising like Angus on a highway to hell. With five levels of assist, you can go from 'Unplugged Acoustic' to 'Stadium Rock' at the drop of a hat. Now 45nm is a bit on the lower end, compared with some of these Ebikes we’ve been reviewing recently, but based on who this is marketed towards, I don’t see this being a con, given the demographics here.
The Chord is less of a bike and more of a Rolling Stones world tour on two wheels.
The battery is the heart and soul of the Chord. It's a 352Wh Samsung Li-ion powerhouse that will keep you riding for 20-50 miles, depending on how much you're cranking up the volume on your ride. And with a quick charging time of just over 2 hours, you'll be back in the saddle for your highly anticipated 'encore'.
Next up, the frame. Crafted from 6061 aluminum, it's as sleek and strong as a platinum record. With a 700C wheel size and a weight of just 46 lbs, it's like the 'Light My Fire' to your Doors anthology — essential and enduring.
Who needs a tour bus when you've got tires like these? We're talking CST C1720, 700 x 42C with reflective strips — they're the roadies of the Chord, keeping you rolling smoothly from gig to gig.
Braking is like hitting the perfect high note — it needs to be precise and controlled. Thankfully, the Chord's brakes are like Mariah Carey on a good day — pitch perfect and ready to bring the house down when needed.
On the gears front, the Chord is serving up an 8-speed Shimano rear derailleur. It shifts smoother than Carlos Santana's guitar solos, ensuring your ride is as smooth as a jazz riff.
Extras? The Chord has got them by the truckload. We're talking built-in navigation, GPS tracking, turn signals, hazard lights, and even a fingerprint reader — it's like the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band of e-bikes.
And let's not forget the cockpit. With its Matrix display and elegant piano theme, it's like being at the helm of your own private concert. Everything is where you need it, when you need it, so you can keep your eyes on the road and your mind on the music.
The Chord is for riders who want to add a dash of rock and roll to their commute. It's for those who prefer the road less traveled, who aren't afraid to take the long way home if it means an extra verse and chorus of their favorite song.
