Description

At Swytch, we believe that transport shouldn’t cost the Earth. Since launching in 2017, we’ve made it our mission to make electric transport accessible to everyone. Our patent-pending conversion kits transform your everyday bicycle into a lightweight electric bike.

We have now reached over 20,000 customers, across 50 countries who have collectively ridden over 1 million miles! Since then, we have raised over $1.4M to scale our operations and secured a $400K Innovate UK grant to develop a next-generation hybrid eBike system for the future of shared electric vehicles.

Founded by Engineers and cycling enthusiasts Oliver Montague and Dmitro Khroma, Swytch is a close-knit team dedicated to creating low carbon transport solutions which are fun to use and good for the planet. We’re now growing our team to keep up with the unprecedented demand for our technology, and to be part of the electric transport revolution.
