It's not quite XC, but it is a single speed with a slotted dropout whereas XC bikes have derailleur hangars and QR style slots. The frame seems to be beefier than an XC but lighter than a MTB jump bike. What's concerning is the wheel-build and those rims. They look on the light duty side of things. The high-ish top tube and long stem are also tell-tale signs that it's designed more for trail riding rather than urban.
You might want to have a look at other jump bikes with bigger frame tubes that usually come with lower top tubes, shorter stems, cromo crank arms, fat rims and a 20mm thru axle hub/fork combo before you make a final decision on that one.
It all depends on how "urban" you're gonna get with it.
Not necessarily this, but a bike with these features...
