People with electric bikes cycle considerably more on average than the average regular bike owner. Electric assist unlocks extra range and provides a convenience to travelling that allows people to use their bicycle as a primary mode of transport.
Through converting bikes into eBikes we hope to contribute to a more sustainable transport eco-system and be part of the bigger picture of combatting climate change. Not only are we reducing people’s emissions as they travel, but we’re also reducing the emissions associated with manufacturing the original technology.
To manufacture a regular bicycle requires emissions of over 200kg of CO2 during the manufacturing process, and for larger, heavier electric bicycles it is almost double that. A Swytch eBike kit takes just 50Kg of CO2 to manufacture, meaning that the environmental impact is 8x lower compared to most complete electric bicycles.
Our CEO an co-founder Oliver Montague invented the original Swytch eBike concept at the start of 2017. Drawings and schematics of the original prototype were used to file a patent application to protect the Intellectual Property – and once this had been done, Swytch went public and launched on Indiegogo raising over $500,000.
With this funding we were able to develop, manufacture and distribute over 3,000 eBikes kits to over 45 countries around the world in 2018. We’re extremely proud of our “Swytchers” who have now ridden over 1 million miles, combined, on their Swytch bikes.
We have invested heavily in developing a team of sustainability and cycling enthusiasts dedicated to providing excellent customer support to our Swytcher.
Together we can make a difference and build a sustainable world where we live within our means and avoid worsening climate change.
