Safety is a top priority for us and our new utility series reflects this commitment. Carrying heavier loads means that we have to design the bikes with a lower center of gravity for stability, lightweight design, and integrated rear lights for increased visibility, so riders can feel confident and in control at all times. We’ve also once again certified our bikes with UL 2849 and UL 2271 , to ensure a reliable and secure performance. Our puncture-resistant tires add an extra layer of durability, eliminating the hassle of flats and ensuring a smooth journey every time. Adam Zhang, Co-Founder of Velotric
