New Year, New Adventures: Ural Air

Posted

New year, new adventures! This year’s Limited Edition Ural Air encourages riders to explore further… on the ground and in the air. The inspiration behind this LE was to open Ural riders to new experiences, and see their adventures from a different perspective. It also reflects our fascination with blending Ural’s classic design with cutting edge technologies. 

What’s over the ridge? What’s just beyond your campsite? What obstacles lie ahead after a big storm? When the trail ends or nightfall is looming, the rider or passenger becomes a pilot, sending out their eye in the sky to determine the best route or quickest escape.  


Experience Something New 

A specially designed compartment opens on the nose of the sidecar, revealing a DJI Spark drone. The drone controller is firmly attached to the sidecar with custom made RAM Mount. The sidecar passenger, turned navigator, can use the Spark’s video capturing technologies to gain the bird’s eye view of the path ahead.

A truly unique design. Only 40 units have been made world wide! With this new design you'll be sure to turn some heads while on the trail. Feel safer when off-roading in new areas with the drone to help guide you. This bike is certainly built for dual riders more than any other Urals. Take this year by the horns and go beyond where you have before! 

The Tech

Spark is a mini-drone that features all of DJI's signature technologies, allowing you to seize the moment whenever you feel inspired.With intelligent flight control options, a mechanical gimbal, and a camera with incredible image quality, Spark empowers you to push your creative boundaries. Make your own videos and show off your skills to your friends using the drone. 

The drone itself is not the only part of this LE that brings together Ural and modern technologies. The drone compartment, made by Stratasys, is a perfect showcase of the advantages of direct digital manufacturing solutions.The door is activated by a push-button located under the nose of the sidecar tub and lifted by strong gas shocks.

Using a specially configured RAM Mount, the drone’s controller is held firmly in place. The sidecar passenger turned navigator can use the Spark’s cutting edge video capturing technologies not only to assist the pilot but also to capture and share the unique experience.
