How Vekkit works

Vekkit includes only 3 parts - a wheel with a motor, bag with a battery and wireless cadence sensor. The cadence sensor detects pedalling and "tells" a motor to assist. Mobile apps allow to set preferences like max speed or power, check battery health and view your ride statistics.

Installation takes around 5 minutes on most bikes, all tools needed for installation are included.

How to order

Only 3 simple steps to transform your favorite bike into an e-bike

Choose the bike you want to convert
You should only know your bike's wheel size (where can I find it?)
Configure your e-bike kit
Configure and order your kit in our constructor. You can purchase a ready to use kit with a well-built wheel including a tire and a tube or a kit with the motor only. Contact us if you can't choose which one will be suitable for your bicycle

FAQ
What are included in a kit?
It depends on what you will choose in a kit configurator. The full kit contains:
  • a front wheel with a motor, tire and tube
  • a bag with a battery
  • a wireless cadence sensor installed on a crank with a rechargeable battery
  • a wireless handlebar remote control with a rechargeable battery
  • a charger
Where do you manufacture Vekkit?
Controllers, battery bags, batteries, cadence sensors and remote controls are made in Krakow, Poland. We use 3d printers to make manufacturing more eco friendly. Also kits have motors by AKM and chargers by Liitokala.
How does Vekkit work?
A wireless cadence sensor detects when you start rotating pedals and send a signal to a motor controller which "tells" a motor to rotate. If you don't rotate pedals motor will not help you to ride.
What happens if the something breaks ?
We have replacement parts for all kit elements and manufacture them without the waiting list. It means that you shouldn't wait a lot of time (like when you order a new kit) and will get a needed part within very short time.
Where are the e-bike kits built?
Bags, sensors, batteries and other parts except a motor are made in Poland. Motors for Vekkit kits are made by AKM.
Can I take my electric bike on a plane?
Yes, you can take Vekkit with 2.6Ah (93,6 Wh) batteries on a plane without quantity limits and without approval from an airline. More info here - https://www.faa.gov/hazmat/packsafe/more_info/?hazmat=7
Why does delivery take so long?
We make each kit in our workshop in Poland only after receiving an order because our configurator has a lot of options. Our kits are something like customized bicycles that's why it can take up to a month to produce a kit (depending on the order quantity).
How to switch motor assist levels on Vekkit?
You can change assist levels using a handlebar remote control (3 levels) or mobile apps for iOS and Android.
Does Vekkit show ride stats?
Sure, you can view speed, distance, battery voltage, how far can you go on a current charge and other stats in mobile apps.
