Compact High-Torque Motor

Conquer any hill with the high torque Swytch eBike Kit brushless hub motor. Rated for 40Nm, this compact brushless motor has enough pulling power to drag the average adult up a 30% incline with only some light pedalling.

Lithium-Ion Power Pack

It may be small and lightweight but it packs a punch. The Swytch power pack is equipped with up to a 250Wh lithium-ion cell battery connected to a sine wave brushless motor controller. It will last you up to 30miles/50km on one charge, and charges in as little as 3 hours.

Dual Mounting Options

With the Swytch Brompton eBike Kit, you have two mounting options. Fit the power pack to the handlebars so you can still use the luggage block, or fit it to the luggage block so you can leave it on when you fold.

How it works

Riding a Swytch Bike couldn’t be easier. As you pedal, the sensor detects your pedalling and sends a signal to the power pack. The power pack calculates the optimum power required, and delivers it to the front wheel motor.

What’s in the box

The Swytch Kit includes absolutely everything you need to convert your bike. It includes a complete motor wheel in any size, built to order. The power pack contains the battery, controller, and electronics. You also get the handlebar connector, the pedal sensor, battery charger, and an instructions manual. That’s all you need, because the Swytch kit is just that simple!

FAQs

Where do you ship to?

The Swytch Kit ships to the UK, EU and USA with very competitive shipping rates via next-day couriers like DPD or Fedex. We can also ship to the rest of world but significant additional charges for air-freight will apply.

Is it available now?

We are now completely sold out of kits for our current batch of production, which is on track for shipping in November/December. Sign up to get notified when our pre-orders re-open for our next production run, scheduled for delivery in early 2021.

Does it recharge as you pedal?

Our system doesn’t offer regenerative braking, because for cycling it’s pointless. 80% of the energy is used to push air out the way, so by adding regen braking the increased range would be minimal.

Instead we use a geared brushless motor that has zero drag so that you can still ride your bike like a regular bike even with the power pack off. If we added regen braking then the motor would always be dragging against your pedalling even with the power off.

Is there any drag?

We use a silent, smooth and frictionless geared brushless motor. So with the power pack removed you can still cycle like normal

How much does it weigh?

The motor weighs 1.5kg, and the power pack weighs 1.5kg, so the added weight is just 3kg!
