What is Pedal Assist?

The Swytch Kit is a pedal-assist system. This means that as you pedal, the power kicks in, and when you stop pedalling the power stops.

The Pedal Sensor

The Swytch Pedal Sensor fits by your pedals and detects the cadence of your pedalling. This sends the signal to the power pack to provide power to the motor. This means you can just click on the battery, start riding, and you'll get a powerful but totally natural feeling boost.

Watch this video to see exactly how the pedal sensor works:

(This is our original kit, so the Power Pack is larger, but it fits the same way!)

Throttle option

If you wish to use a throttle, we offer two types of throttles as an add-on that simply plugs into the handlebar bracket. With the throttle fitted you can get power to the motor without pedalling. For more information, please see: Can I use a throttle?
