4 reasons not to buy

  • One expert’s thighs rubbed against the ZOOZ’s wide seat unless they were standing.

  • The ZOOZ’s long seat is not adjustable.
  • A reviewer noted that ZOOZ bikes did not climb hills powerfully using only throttle.

Bottom line

The ZOOZ Urban Ultralight is a unique and powerful BMX-inspired e-bike. It comes in three models with three different motor sizes; the UU250, UU750 and UU1100. The UU250 is road-legal. In some configurations, the more powerful bikes are not. They’re too fast and too powerful. With a long, chopper-style seat and BMX frame, ZOOZ bikes are primarily designed to cruise, under heavy throttle application. Reviewers said that the ZOOZ Urban Ultralight’s seating position is not the best on long pedaling rides, despite a considerable 40-mile maximum range (or 20 miles on full-throttle). Some experts would prefer a torque sensor, over the ZOOZ’s equipped pedal sensor. Owners were happy to ride this bike like a moped or scrambler-type motorbike. It’s simple, good-looking and by all accounts, very fun.

ZOOZ 750 Review: The Wedding Sneakers of E-bikes

I had a blast on the 750W bike. I think it was great for the cruising focus the bike has. If I planned on hitting the park a bit more or tackling big hills on the regular, I would opt for the 1000W… No other bike is as inviting, alluring or carefree as the ZOOZ.

Our First Electric BMX E-bike, the ZOOZ Urban Ultralight 1100 Review

The ZOOZ is the ultimate fun machine. You time-travel to your childhood days of riding BMX, but you are ripping it at speeds up to 33 mph… perfect for the person going through that midlife crisis, wanting an escape from the monotonous 9-5 adulthood, but smart enough to realize that an expensive convertible or red Corvette isn’t the answer… We took the ZOOZ off packed dirt jumps.

The Most Exciting E-bike We’ve Tested! ZOOZ Urban Ultralight

For no suspension it’s pretty smooth… it moves in the air a lot better than I thought too… That thing’s way more capable than I thought. The brakes are way better than I thought… It was really kind of a guessing game where the throttle was going to grab.

ZOOZ Bike | Pros & Cons

Slight delay? I don’t think it’s a big deal… the seat is really flat…it’s not something you would want to ride on for hours at a time… The brakes are amazing… OG original BMX parts…
