The London based start-up in its pursuit of innovation has announced an eBike conversion kit that can fit in the palm of your hand. The product will be unveiled at the Eurobike 2019 International Cycling trade show next week. It is affordable, portable and lightweight, making it easy to carry on the go. The company plans on launching the product in late September of 2019. It will be made available through the crowd-funding site Indiegogo. The company has invited customers and press to have a first-hand experience by visiting Swytch at Eurobike this week or by visiting the Indiegogo pre-launch page.
What it does
The Swytch Kit can convert any regular bike into an electric bike just by attaching it to the bike. The max speed that the electric bike can reach is 40 miles. The portability makes it very convenient and it is also quite easy to plug into the bike and plug out of it. The name Swytch suggests an instant swytch from a regular bike to an electric bike and vice versa.
Where the inspiration came from
Swytch developed the original Swytch Kit back in 2017 by raising $500,000 on Indiegogo from over 1,000 customers. Now they have revolutionized the original kit by coming up with a 50% lighter kit. The new kit has decreased by 70% in size and the weight has been halved from 3kg to 1.5kg.
Moreover, the product launch is planned for late September, however, customers can sign up for product launch notifications and a 50% discount on RRP by registering on the Swytch Indiegogo “Coming-Soon” page, which includes some sneak preview images and video ahead of the full launch
Statement from Swytch Technology Co-Founder and CEO Oliver Montague
“Our mission is to make top-quality electric bike technology affordable for everyone. We went to great lengths to design the product to be affordable, easy to fit, and universally compatible. We estimate 99% of the 1 Billion bicycles in the world could be converted with Swytch. Doing so, instead of building brand new eBikes, could save thousands of tonnes of Carbon Emissions, as well as saving our customers a lot of money!”
