What forks are compatible?

Universal Kit (for 100mm forks)

Most bikes have a 100mm (10cm) distance between the front forks, where the Swytch motor wheel goes. As shown in this diagram:

If your forks are out by less than 5mm then don't worry, the motor wheel can still be fitted with the help of some spacers which we can provide.


Folding Kit (For narrow 74-80mm forks) 

Our Folding Kit is designed specifically for narrow forks and features a specialised motor that is suitable for any folding bike with narrow forks, from 74mm to 80mm. Feel free to open a support ticket with us to check your fork dimensions by sharing photos of your bike and the measurement as shown above.

Quick Release

While the quick-release mechanism is compatible with Swytch motor wheels, it's important to note that Swytch wheels require bolting on. This means that you would lose the quick-release option, however the Swytch wheel would work absolutely fine.

Thru Axle

Are the dropouts on your bike forks a thru-axle (as seen on the right-hand side) or are they open-ended as seen in the left image? Unfortunately, thru-axles (right image) are not compatible with our kits.






Are you still unsure?
