We strongly believe that E-Bikes are the Future of Urban Mobility together with the spread of solar charging stations. And fortunately we are not the only ones, given the offer of e-bikes and electric scooters on the market.
Plus all car manufacturers are launching innovative electric vehicles specially designed to improve the mobility of people and goods. Hence climate change and government regulations to reduce carbon emissions are driving the need for sustainable urban mobility. Among the various solutions, electric bikes are today the most promising solution to increase efficiency in urban mobility. First of all e-bikes are faster than a conventional bicycle and go uphill with minimal effort. The second reason concerns the travel times in the city.
All studies agree that most of the daily commute takes place in crowded cities and covers less than 10 km (6 miles). And it has been seen that in chaotic traffic the average speed of a car is only 20 – 25 km/h (12 – 15 mph). So the e-bike is the fastest transport system for the daily commute. This is why many urban planners are convinced that e-bikes are the future of urban mobility. Because e-bikes save you time in the traffic, and you don’t have to waste time looking for a parking space for your car.
The Urban Mobility of the Future is Already Here
Today we can see different types of electric vehicles in our cities, from electric mini scooters to plug-in luxury cars. Electric mobility is therefore revolutionizing the way we get to know cities. In fact we are seeing a great growth of electric cars from Asia to Europe, as well as America. And this is great for the quality of the air we breathe in the city. But the further step forward is given by the replacement of the car with lighter vehicles such as e-bikes. Because only a huge growth of electric bikes and scooters is the key to reducing urban traffic as well as pollution. And to support the most environmentally friendly urban mobility system, Azure Bikes has developed several products and services. From luxury electric scooters to cargo bikes, from e-bikes with satellite tracking to solar powered charging stations.
Explore our large collection of e-bikes and e-scooters to see what matches your tastes and needs. We especially push e-bikes because we are convinced that they are the ideal means of transport for urban mobility. And, of course, the spread of solar charging stations for electric bikes makes them even more sustainable for the environment.

Enjoy a Relaxed Ride with Vintage Charm on Beach Cruiser E-Bikes
A beach cruiser is characterized by its simple, fun and extravagant design. And because of its simplicity, it became popular as an easy and inexpensive means of transportation during the Great Depression. The cruiser bike was so popular among teenagers in the 1950s that it became the symbol of America. But with the advent of lighter and faster racing bikes and mountain bikes, the old cruisers have lost their appeal. In fact, on a cruiser bicycle the cyclist has a vertical position which favors comfort over everything else. Also, the wide handlebars, coaster brake and large balloon tires allow for a smooth ride but don’t allow for high speeds.
Today, beach cruiser bikes thanks to some modifications are popular again. As the addition of disc brakes and pedal-assist electric motors made the cruiser a fast bike as well as a comfortable one. So with a Beach Cruiser you can enjoy a relaxed ride with vintage charm both in the neighborhood and at the beach.
