How it works


Hub Motor Wheel

Compact, High Torque Brushless Hub Motor

We provide a complete wheel in any size that fits to your bike, replacing your existing wheel.

Inside the wheel is a compact, high torque brushless hub motor that drives the wheel round to assist you. Rated for 40Nm it has enough pulling power to drag the average adult up a 30% incline with light pedalling.

Power Pack


The instantly removable Swytch power pack fits in your hand, but don’t be fooled, it packs a punch.

Equipped with advanced lithium-ion battery cells, a high current battery management system and a sine-wave brushless motor controller, it out-performs most eBikes on the market when it comes to power and efficiency. With up to 250Wh, it will last you up to 50km on one charge, and charges in as little as 3 hours.

Pedal Sensor

Responsive Electric Assistance

The pedal sensor detects when you’re pedalling and sends a signal to the power pack.

It’s designed around a 12-magnet cadence system making it smooth and steady. Overall the system is pedal-assist, meaning you just pedal like normal and it powers as you ride.
