People with eBikes cycle considerably more on average than the average regular bicycle owner. Electric assist unlocks extra range and provides a convenience to traveling that allows people to use their bicycle as a primary mode of transport.
Through converting bikes into eBikes we hope to contribute to a more sustainable transport ecosystem and be part of the bigger picture of combating climate change. Not only are we reducing people’s emissions as they travel, but we’re also reducing the emissions associated with manufacturing the original technology.
A regular bicycle requires emissions of over 200kg of CO2 during the manufacturing process, and larger, heavier electric bicycles are almost double that. A Swytch eBike kit takes just 50kg of CO2 to manufacture, meaning that the environmental impact is 8 times lower compared to most complete electric bicycles.
