Custom-built motor wheel

We custom build the motor wheel for your bike. If you have a Brompton you will just need to confirm you need a 16″ Brompton wheel. If you have a different folding bike e.g. Dahon, with narrow forks, then you’ll need to specify your wheel size. After you have placed your order, you can confirm this in our order customisation portal.

Matte-black finish

We offer a matte-black wheel in our order portal as an optional upgrade for an additional charge. The regular Swytch wheel comes with a silver motor, rims and spokes.

Throttle

  • Twist Throttle: The twist throttle sits on your handlebars and you twist it to supply power to the motor.
  • Thumb Throttle: Ideal for handlebars with little space, you can use the spring-loaded thumb lever by pressing it to power the motor wheel.

Brake sensors

Available for both cable and hydraulic brakes, these work by stopping the power to the motor as soon as you brake, even if you are still pedalling. They are great for adventure cyclists, commuting or if you often cycle through slow-moving traffic.

Spare Power Pack

Increase your range by 50 km by ordering a spare PRO Power Pack to carry with you, weighing only 2kg.

Our electric bike kits are fully pedal assist. Once you start to pedal, the sensor detects your speed and from this, the Power Pack works out what power to deliver to the front wheel motor. When you stop pedalling the Power Pack cuts the power to the motor wheel.

You can easily assemble your Swytch Kit without any specialist tools. Simply swap your old Brompton wheel for the Swytch motor wheel, attach the pedal sensor, and position the quick connect bracket on the handlebars. Finally, click on the Power Pack and you’re ready to go!

FAQ

We ship to the UK, EU, AUS, CAN and the US. We can also ship to the rest of the world but significant additional charges for air-freight will apply.
We are now completely sold out of kits at 50% off. Sign up to our waitlist to be invited to pre-order during our next launch window, which will be going live in late summer 2021. If you wish to buy a kit at full RRP, for same-week delivery, please contact us here.
No, our system doesn’t offer regenerative braking. This is because when you are cycling, approximately 95% of your energy is lost to air resistance and rolling resistance, so by adding regenerative braking the increased range would be minimal. Instead, we developed a geared brushless motor that produces zero drag, so with the Power Pack removed, you can use your bike like normal. With regenerative braking the motor would always be dragging against your pedalling, even when off.
No. Using our smooth and frictionless geared brushless motor you can still cycle as normal with the Power Pack removed.
The motor wheel weighs 1.5kg, and the Power Pack weighs 2kg.
