Urtopia presented two new models of smart bikes, the FUSION and the CARBON 1 PRO, at CES 2024. Two major developments have been associated with these models: the integration of AI and a smart ring that enables interaction with the smart bikes without using the application on one's phone.

By retaining most of the existing technologies, the incorporation of Artificial Intelligence into the smart bike propels us into the near future.

A design rooted in its origins...

When two philosophies encounter the most intricate materials and advanced technologies, a harmonious blend of engineering and art emerges.

Urtopia has two designers: one draws the source of his inspiration from mathematics through the Möbius Strip, while the second draws inspiration from Tai Chi for its spiritual dimension and the manipulation of energy.

Smartbar features

Urtopia's e-bike, equipped with integrated smart technology, possesses a cognitive awareness and decision-making capacity akin to human cognition. This dynamic intelligence ushers in a new era, transforming bikes into advanced companions. The symbiotic connection between rider and machine reaches a profoundly intuitive level, as man and technology unite in their shared mission of exploration.

For both models, the Fusion and the Carbon 1 Pro, the features of the smartbar are identical.

The Smartbar comes equipped with a range of features to enhance your biking experience, including voice control, fingerprint start, LED dot-matrix display, haptic interaction, Bluetooth music capabilities, built-in navigation, and over-the-air (OTA) upgrade functionality.

In terms of connectivity, the Smartbar incorporates an eSIM with 4G support, Bluetooth, and WiFi, along with GPS for comprehensive navigation capabilities.

The inclusion of IoT sensors such as accelerometer, gyroscope, and a proprietary torque sensor sets the Smartbar apart. Unlike jerky cadence sensing, the torque sensor enables super-fast speed adaptation, ensuring a smoother riding experience.

The Smartbar's dedicated app, compatible with both iOS and Android, allows users to capture their journeys and create lasting memories. Details like routes, speed, and calories burned are all recorded, and users can easily share their rides, photos, and stories with the Urtopia community directly through the app.

Additionally, the Smartbar features an integrated headlight and ARES (Advanced Rear Early Indication System). The ARES system includes a bright-red position light and a pair of projection lights to indicate turns, enhancing safety and visibility during rides.


Renowned designer Hartmut Esslinger, famous for his iconic collaborations with Apple and Frog Design, has applied his expertise to craft Fusion. Witness the seamless integration of sleek design and state-of-the-art technology, as Esslinger's visionary touch elevates the riding experience to unparalleled heights.

A Light e-SUV

Weighing in at a starting point of 23 kg (50 lbs), the FUSION is designed to accommodate a total maximum load of 150 kg (330 lbs).

Everything in safety

The braking system offers options, featuring TEKTRO HD-M280 disc brakes or Magura MT4 eSTOP disc brakes, providing reliable and responsive stopping power.

For transmission, riders can choose between a Shimano CUES U6000 1X10 Speed or an Enviolo Heavy Duty (Ratio 380%) system, allowing for a smooth and efficient ride.

The drive train includes a KMC e10 Turbo chain or Gates CDX carbon belt.

The 28-inch wheels, paired with Schwalbe Big Apple 55-622 (28X2.15) tires, contribute to a comfortable and stable ride.

"One for all, all in one"

With a one-size-fits-all frame crafted from lightweight carbon fiber, the bike is suitable for individuals ranging from 160 cm to 190 cm in height.

Furthermore, the Fusion model comes in two variants, offering riders a choice between the standard Fusion and the Fusion CVT, catering to different preferences and riding needs.

Urtopia FUSION is available in three colors: Blazing Black, Elegant Grey, and Vital Orange.

The designer is enhancing the Carbon 1 and 1s models with the new Carbon 1 Pro, incorporating features such as interchangeable front fork and seat post for DIY upgrades, relocated battery for better weather protection, and versatile tires suitable for both off-road adventures and urban commutes.

Mathis Heller, formerly a designer for BMW and Siemens, drew inspiration from the Möbius strip to create a striking frame shape for his latest project. This design not only captures aesthetics but also symbolizes sustainability and interconnectedness.
