About Urbran Arrow

How They Started

Step into the captivating story of Urban Arrow, a journey that unfolds in the late '00s. Imagine Jorrit Kreek and Gerald van Weel, bicycle industry comrades, navigating the vibrant streets of Amsterdam on their cargo bikes while shouldering the responsibilities of fatherhood. With the advent of the e-bike era, they sensed the winds of change, sparking the ingenious idea for an electric cargo bike.

This dynamic duo sought the expertise of industrial designer Wytze van Mansum to join their mission and reimagine the cargo bike. Together, they turned vision into reality. Fast forward to 2010, and voila—the first prototype of The Urban Arrow Family emerged, capturing hearts and earning the prestigious Eurobike award. The rest, as they say, is history.

At Reckless Shipyards, we're thrilled to share the tale of Urban Arrow's genesis, where innovation and electric mobility converge to redefine your cycling adventures!
