People with eBikes cycle considerably more on average than the average regular bicycle owner. Electric assist unlocks extra range and provides a convenience to traveling 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 ecosystem and be part of the bigger picture of combating 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.
A regular bicycle requires emissions of over 200kg of CO2 during the manufacturing process, and larger, heavier electric bicycles are almost double that. A Swytch eBike kit takes just 50kg of CO2 to manufacture, meaning that the environmental impact is 8 times lower compared to most complete electric bicycles.
Our CEO and 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. Once this had been done, Swytch launched on Indiegogo and raised over $500,000.
With this funding we developed, manufactured and distributed over 3,000 eBikes kits to over 45 countries in 2018. We are extremely proud of our Swytch Community who have now ridden over 1 million miles combined.
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.
