Urban Iki loves to bring some Iki in your life! With our roots in Japan, Iki as a part of Japanese culture, is close and dear to us. Beauty in everyday life is a part of the Iki feeling. That is why Urban Iki is about design. Not the complicated kind of design. But the refined, honest, original and functional one. Together with Dutch designers we created Urban Iki. And to make sure everybody can have some Iki in their life, we use our street smart to keep our products affordable. More of our story
Dutch design could have come from anywhere. It is not all about the Dutch but more about a mentality. Unconventional, minimalistic, creative, a bit bold but still all about functionality. Inspired by people and what moves them. Finding solutions for everyday challenges and making them beautiful. In Urban Iki we literally brought in the Dutch. Dutch designers designed the first Urban Iki bicycle seats.
In Urban Iki by OGK east really meets west. Dutch design and Japanese technology come together. In the streets of every modern city in Japan you see moms and dads cycling with their children in OGK bicycle seats. Seats created, technically developed and manufactured in our own factories according to high Japanese quality and safety standards. In Japan we have done this over 80 years! Urban Iki is not just a new fresh chapter in our future storybook. Urban Iki is our past, present and future in one.
That one great find. That beautiful item of good quality …and at a nice price. It really feels like a prize! We know that feeling. That is what we want to bring with Urban Iki. Urban Iki is not about impressing with technical features you didn’t ask for but still need to pay for. It’s about all you need and expect from a good quality and safe bicycle seat in a beautiful design. Clever thought out in every detail to keep the price tag as good as it can be. Or even…almost too good to be true.
When we buy products we trust them to be safe and of good quality. That is the way it should be. Of course, we feel responsible for the safety and quality of Urban Iki bicycle seats. In Europe there is a norm EN14344 which describes the most important things to guarantee safety. We use this norm in developing the seats. TUV is an independent institute taking care of testing and approving products if they meet the standards in the norm. Urban Iki seats are tested and approved by TUV.
We can think of beautiful bicycle seats and beautiful colours coming together. But thinking of you, we thought you might like it to choose your own colours. You know what you like! So in our webshop we offer you just that. Take a look around and configure your own bicycle seat in the colours you like. We will assemble the seat for you and ship it out to you. As easy as that.
We don’t want you to struggle with our bicycle seats! We want you to enjoy them. So we think it should be easy to mount an Urban Iki bicycle seat on your bike. With Urban Iki that is really no more than 5 minutes of work, and you can do this yourself. And if you go out without your little one, you can just take of the seat in 1 second. With an extra mounting frame or block, you can buy as an accessory, you can easily swap the seats between bikes. A real money saver. Just click & go!
