Special care has been taken to ensure the aesthetics, the sporting spirit and urban character.
Gravity reach the city with the Urban Black, 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 esthetic design.
The large board makes it unique on asphalt, allows you to fully control the riding with your feet, like a skate; it's a large surface to the rider to modify his position, find his ideal position to kick; allows two people to go comfortably; and beech wood is not only aesthetic, it also provides comfort to the soles of the feet.
The geometry of all the Gravity is very sporty, we like speed and with the Urban Black you will notice. The large and narrow front wheel accentuates this character.

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.
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 in descent, although is low enough not to lose the sensation of surfing the roads that with the augment of this distance disappears.
