The Urban Ryder™ and Urban Cruzer™ E-bikes are designed to be water resistant. Components are stainless, preventing the chance of rust. The E-bikes can be ridden in light rain or damp riding conditions, but we recommend against riding them in heavy rains and through deep puddles. Do not submerge your bike in water as water will seep into openings and cause damage to electrical components. If you absolutely must ride in heavy rainfall, we recommend taking extra precautions to protect electrical components and connections from getting wet. We highly recommend that you wipe down and clean your bike after riding in the rain.
We recommend caution for riding in the snow as the salt on the ground reacts with the aluminum of the wheels and can cause it to rust.
