Electric bike kit
By Jinny Throup
A UK startup company called Swytch has developed what it claims to be the “world’s lightest, most affordable electric bike conversion kit.” It includes a new front wheel with an integrated electric motor that connects to a removable battery pack that is attached to the handlebars. The company offers a variety of standard front wheel sizes to fit any bike. Because the Swytch powers the non-drive front wheel, it doesn’t have to be integrated into the gearing system, which makes it much simpler to install and operate than rear wheel conversions.

The bike’s battery pack can easily be removed when parking, and the battery bag also serves as an information dashboard when you are riding. It uses LED lights to show the battery charge level, and it tells you when the power assist mode is in use. The kit also includes an LED headlight for additional visibility. With a top speed of 40 km per hour, and a range of up to 80 km, this e-bike conversion kit aims to make it easy to add an electric boost to any bike. For those who don’t own a bike, Swytch offers a complete e-bike package.
