What is Pedal Assist?

The Swytch Kit works by pedal assist.

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, it detects the cadence of your pedalling and sends the signal to the power pack.

Throttle option

For countries where it is legal, we offer a throttle add-on that simply plugs into the handlebar bracket. With the throttle fitted you can get power to the motor without pedalling.
