Electric bikes can be costly, but what if you could convert your typical bicycle into an e-bike? Even more remarkable, if you could put the battery in your pocket? Swytch has responded to the desires of every cyclist with their latest compact electric bike transformation kit.
“It is the only electric bike system that is compatible with almost any type of bicycle. If your bike has handlebars and a front wheel, the Swytch kit will be compatible – with only a few small exceptions. The wheel size of your bike doesn’t matter – we can build the motor wheel in any size for any bike.”
The new design consists of a current handlebar mount that locks a plastic case to hold the battery. It’s also backward united, so if you are a user of the larger first-generation Swytch kits and desire to enhance, you don’t have to change everything. You can just have the latest battery and begin pedalling.
The other half of the kit includes a 250 W center motor intended to switch onto the front wheel of any bicycle. It reaches 25 km/h (15 mph) in Europe and 32 km/h (20 mph) in the US. The motor makes up to 40 Nm of turns and can help the middling adult up a sheer 30% slant. The kit runs with disc brakes and will gain up to 50 km of range. You can always take a second battery in your pocket if you want more range/coverage.
You can now enrol on the Swytch waitlist to get 50% off the small battery kit. Though, the generous discount has had Swytch go after with production to reach the demand, meaning the next release will possibly be this fall.
