Three of our patents are design patents. They apply to different aspects of the frame, including the overall shape and the signature holes that make a distinct visual statement while reducing weight and providing strength. The final patent is for new and useful inventions. "Foldable electrical vehicles and related charging infrastructure..." We can't say too much, but let's just leave it at "no one else can build a scooter like URB-E." The URB-E Foldable Electric Scooter. Exclusively designed, built, and shipped from Pasadena, California.
