Yuba was launched in 2006 to build and provide affordable mobility solutions with a particular emphasis on distributing them to those most in need. The founders of Yuba came together to advance economic and social development, to promote self-reliance, and to emphasize better environmental awareness and lifestyle choices – all through the use of bicycles.
Because bicycles are one of the most energy efficient, financially affordable, mechanically reliable, and environmentally friendly vehicles, we believe that a more bike-centric world makes for a better world, a more connected world.
Our purpose and motivation are fuelled by the love of bicycles and the strong desire to help individuals around the planet gain a foothold on the ladder of development. Utility Bicycles are a tool for a different “de-velo-pment", they are an appropriate solution that is democratic, available to all and greatly affordable. Because bicycles are one of the most energy efficient, financially affordable, and environmentally friendly vehicle ever invented, we strongly believe that Utility Bicycles can lead to a nicer world. A world in which individuals can have a better life and have more opportunities and do more good. It is clear that Utility Bicycles can be a solution to help the poorest get out of poverty. Furthermore the zero emissions characteristics of the Mundo is a positive and proactive way to combat global warming. The Mundo Utility Bicycle is then a great vehicle and support for allowing individuals enough personal freedom without sacrificing the resources, nature’s beauty and the social link between people.
