For many bike commuters, taking a shower at work is a necessity after making it through the commute. With an ebike, cyclists still get the exercise they want, but with a little assistance to keep the sweating down to a minimum. But such a luxury can be expensive, so one startup created Swytch, the removable ebike kit that can transform any kind of bicycle.
Swytch works by hiding an electric motor inside a specially built front wheel, available in all standard sizes as well as a for other sizes on request. The wheel is then linked up with a lightweight and removable power pack that sits between the handlebars like a basket. Inside the power pack is a battery, user display, controls, front light, and USB output for charging other devices.
The Swytch ebike kit is available for pre-order on IndieGoGo starting at $299 for the base 25-mile kit. For those without a bike already, the campaign also offers a complete bike option with the 50-mile system for $599. For added convenience, a twist-grip or thumb throttle is also available as a $15 add-on.
