THE MORE AESTHETIC SPORT URBAN SCOOTER
Gravity Scooters lands to the city with its Urban Black model, our first Urban Scooter. You can already enjoy the feeling of riding a Gravity for asphalt: a large board to control and feel the riding; a sporty geometry: agile and safe; and an aesthetic design are the three elements that best define it.
The large board makes it unique in the market of urban scooters. The large board allows the rider to fully control the riding with their feet in the manner of a skate and provides a huge space for the rider to modify his posture and find his ideal position to kick. It also allows to comfortably accommodating two people on it. The beech wood is not purely aesthetic: it also provides comfort to the soles of the feet.
The geometry of any Gravity is very sporty: we like speed and with the Urban Black you will notice that. The large and narrow front wheel accentuates this sporty design.

The board of URBAN BLACK is narrower to facilitate the kick, to avoid hits at the ankle and helps carry the weight correctly to conserve the inertia and obtain maximum speed.
Board is made of laminated beech from Britain, hot forming to high pressure and using special glues for outdoors. The woods are polished, treated with fungicides against moisture and finally varnished. The wood is coated with a non-skid sandpaper, just like a skateboard, for a rider´s feet better grip. This leaves a completely smooth surface for the feet, without pieces of iron that end up hurting the rider´s feet and damaging the soles.
The inner board, which is not seen without disassembling the scooter, combined with the upper board and frame tubes provides the assembly a great strength. This sandwich system comprising the boards and frame is patented by Gravity Scooters and is another of our unique features.
NOVELTY! The new grip tape, the CreamGrip. The CreamGrip is made of “RUBBER”, so it is waterproof and easy to clean with a damp cloth.
In addition, for every CreamGrip tape sold, another will be donated to a community of skaters in developing regions that use skateboarding as a means of reintegrating people at risk of exclusion. You want to know more?
The frame of URBAN BLACK is made of CrMb Steel, the most resistant steel.
Its medium height (distance from the board to the ground) is necessary to avoid the rocks of the road, although is low enough not to lose the sensation of surfing the roads that with the augment of this distance disappears.
The protection plate that protects the entire lower part of the scooter.
Having a smooth plate along the entire length of the scooter allows us to lower the height at which our feet go and increase safety, good sensations and facilitates propulsion, without being afraid of getting caught in an obstacle or damaging the scooter.
In the first mountain outings it is normal to worry about the sound of scratching but the rider quickly gets used to it, appreciates going so low and learns to play with the plate.
