Swytch Technology will be unveiling its new and improved “hand-held” eBike conversion kit, the “Swytch Kit” at Eurobike 2019
The Swytch Kit can transform any bicycle into a state-of-the-art electric bike. It consists of a front motor wheel, powered by a hand-held power pack that simply clips to your handlebars. It is instantly removable, allowing customers to keep their existing bike, and “Swytch” instantly between regular bike, and eBike.
In 2017 the company raised over $500,000 on Indiegogo from over 1,000 customers to develop and manufacture the original Swytch Kit, which is currently available to order on the Swytch Bike website: www.swytchbike.com
The new kit is 50% lighter (3kg power pack down to 1.5kg) and 70% smaller (shrunk from car-battery size, to palm-sized). The new product launch is planned for late September 2019 on Indiegogo
In the meantime, interested customers can sign up for product launch notifications and a 50% discount on RRP by registering on the Swytch.
