UBCO and Shane Dorian: A Game-Changing Collaboration for Hunters

Surf legend Shane Dorian spent years on the championship tour and earned a reputation as one of the world's best big-wave surfers.
Born and raised in Hawaii, Shane fell in love with surfing at a young age. For Shane, surfing always provided an escape. As he grew older, he discovered bow hunting, and fell in love with the sport for many of the same reasons he loved to surf – being in nature, out in the elements, experiencing challenging adventures and stunning scenery.
With extensive bow hunting under his belt, we called on Shane to help us develop a bike with everything any serious sportsperson would need. The UBCO Hunt Edition. Working alongside Shane, we packed the bike with utility and function and included an accessory package curated from top hunting brands.
Shane says "After bow hunting for 20 years, it's really cool to have a tool like the UBCO Hunt Edition because it doesn't take anything away from my experience as a hunter. It just really adds as a tool to be able to get farther out safely. The experience of using an electric AWD vehicle to hunt, especially one as tough as the UBCO, is unbeatable - it's light, silent, and a blast to ride. I'm excited about where I can get to this season using this bike."

Based on our 2X2 platform, the Hunt Edition features a 1000W hub motor on both the front and rear wheels, providing all-wheel drive capabilities. Exclusive to the Hunt Edition (currently) you can also unlock the top speed from 30mph to 40mph with Boost Mode. The bike comes standard with various accessories tailored for hunting, such as a rear cargo deck with straps for securing gear, a center tote for additional storage, molle panels for attaching tools, a bow mount, and phone mount.

“The UBCO Hunt Edition is a hunter’s dream bike. With a 75-mile range, AWD, and full suspension, I can get everywhere I need to hunt with only the twist of a throttle. The 335 lb weight capacity allows me to extend my hunts and bring home more meat. The experience of using a silent, electric AWD vehicle to hunt, especially one as tough as the UBCO is unbeatable.” Shane Dorian
