New e-bike from URWAHN relies on additive manufacturing

The URWAHN company has unveiled a new e-bike in which both the frame and individual components come from the 3D printer.

According to URWAHN, the frame was made from steel using the 3D printing process. The organic-looking structure is said to provide a high level of riding comfort. Brake levers, bottle cages and pedals were also additively manufactured from titanium, for example.

According to URWAHN, 3D printing enables completely new designs that would not be feasible using conventional manufacturing processes. In collaboration with partners, it was thus possible to develop components that set new standards in terms of lightweight construction and functionality.

The hybrid handlebar also comes from the 3D printer and is made of carbon. Overall, the e-bike features innovative technology and a unique look, according to URWAHN.

The frame in matte purple changes depending on the incidence of light and appears sometimes black, sometimes shiny. The e-bike is aimed at ambitious athletes and is available on request from 8,499 euros. According to URWAHN, the project demonstrates the possibilities of 3D printing for sustainable and individual mobility concepts.
