SWYTCH IN THE NEWS – “The Swytch electric conversion kit can power any bicycle” [techradar.com]

“A box of tricks that works with any cycle”

Published on 07 February 2017

Much cheaper than any off-the-shelf electric bike, the Swytch kit is a cheap entrance into the electric bike market, long sought after by younger commuters. Indeed, despite the eBike industry growing by 1700% in the last ten years, it’s still the over 50s who make up the largest proportion of the market with 70% owning an electric bicycle.

The hefty price-tag seems to have put off most youngsters from considering an eBike lifestyle. But now, with prices starting at just £549, we hope that more commuters will Make the Swytch, and contemplate the possibility of a greener commute.

When our indiegogo campaign is complete, we will be selling direct to customers via our website. That said, we are also planning on bringing in dealers and stores to specialise in Swytch fittings.

Dealers will be able to sell the Swytch Kit with a 62% profit margin. The benefit here is that each customer will have somewhere to go for help with fitting and maintaining their Swytch Bike!

Everyone loves a fast downhill run – it’s the uphill beforehand that can be a nuisance. MBR thinks that the Swytch kit ” is an interesting concept” for longer trails and tricky uphill traverses when linking between mountain bike trails.

Although the front wheel drive and extra handlebar weight isn’t great for mountain bikes, we’re already making extra steps to facilitate the mountain bike community. With the High Power Conversion Kit, you can mount your motor to the rear wheel for better control on those rocky trails.

“Suddenly it’s becoming conventional wisdom that electric vehicles are the way forward … but could it be bicycles rather than cars which are electrified first?”

It seems that cycling might be the only dependable solution for the urban congestion and air pollution crisis. Many cities are backing the eBike movement, but the average cost is far from affordable.

Our CEO and Oxford Engineering Graduate, Oliver Montague met with BBC reporter Jat Gill to discuss his plan to bring the cost down: “Electric transport needs to become a lot more affordable – people don’t need Bluetooth on their electric bikes.”
From what we can see, it wont be long until the electric bike industry is on par with the motor industry. With the Swytch Bike in pole position, there’ll be no stopping the eBike revolution!

“This is not a one-way conversion, and any bike can be easily converted back into a regular bike.”

Our UK-designed conversion kit is a pedal-powered boost to any commute.

Nigel Wynn, the Reporter from Cycling Weekly, had a spin on one of our prototypes. Our cleverly programmed, 3-phase power input gave him a particularly smooth ride: “Although it may give you extra power that you don’t have, it does not feel unnatural – although the system gets you up to speed swiftly.”

This Dutch news blog was excited to learn about the Swytch Bike’s successful launch on indiegogo. The Netherlands populace are already very fond of bikes. For those who are getting older, or who live just a little too far away from work, the Swytch Bike looks like an interesting and affordable prospect.

Most of our Dutch fellows already own a bicycle, and so getting a whole new bike seems just unnecessary. Upgrading their own bike, however, could prove to be a trendy solution for many residents.
