How Vekkit works

Vekkit includes only a few parts - a wheel with a motor, bag with a battery, wireless cadence sensor and wireless handlebar conrol. 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 10-15 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

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

"The cycling experience was very good. Very smooth, and the assistance kicked in straight away, but in a controlled manner. The speed controller on the handlebar seemed effective, and putting it up to 3 for any climbs meant the bike sailed up with ease..."

"Ich habe den Akku bei der ersten Ladung bewusst bis zur Abschaltung zu ende gefahren. Ich bin mit einer Akkuladung (10Ah) 52,5km gefahren (von Samstag bis Mittwoch abend verteilt). Allerdings immer auf Stufe 2 und 3 bis zum Anschlag."

FAQ
Are e-bike conversion kits worth it?
If you already have a favourite regular bicycle then your best choice is an e-bike conversion kit. This choice is both cheaper (Vekkit-level complete e-bikes cost about 1900-2900 EUR) and eco-friendly (no need to produce the bike itself and utilize the old one). But even if you don't have a bicycle, you can choose any bicycle that you like and that suits you best (size, components, style) - and install the kit on it! We developed Vekkit for anyone to be able to install it. Plus, every kit contains a set of tools you will need for the installation. If you order the kit with the tyre - it arrivesalready installed.
How does the Vekkit e-bike kit work and how much time does it take to install it on a bicycle?
Vekkit includes only a few parts - a wheel with the motor, a bag with the battery, a wireless cadence sensor and a wireless handlebar remote. The cadence sensor detects pedalling and commands the motor to assist. Mobile apps allow to set preferences like max speed or power, to check battery health and to view your ride statistics.

Installation takes around 10-15 minutes on most bikes, all tools needed for the installation are included.
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 our kits have Aikema motors and Liitokala chargers. Firmware is developed in our workshop too.
What happens if something breaks ?
We have replacement parts for all kit elements and manufacture them without a waiting list. It means that you won't have to wait long (like when you order a new kit) and will get the needed part within a very short time.
Can I take my electric bike on a plane?
Yes, you can take Vekkit with the 5.2Ah batteries on a plane without quantity limits and without approval from the 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 the order because our configurator has a lot of options. Our kits are like customized bicycles - that's why it can take up to a month to produce the kit (depending on the orders quantity).
How to switch motor assist levels?
You can change assist levels using the handlebar remote control (3 levels), the button on the kit body (3 levels) or the Vekkit mobile apps for iOS and Android (10 levels).
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 the mobile apps.
Why are Vekkit kits more expensive than others?
One reason is that a lot of brands list their prices without VAT and duties which you will have to pay yourself. In this case in EU you will have to pay additionally about 22-27% of the price. On our website you always see the full price with all costs included. Another reason is that we produce Vekkits using the latest technology so that your bike will become a high-end electric bicycle. For example, for our 360 Wh batteries we use the 21700 li-ion elements which are also used in Tesla cars. And to make our motors work smoothly, our controllers implement FOC which can be operated only on powerful microcontrollers. This way you can always be sure that when you buy a Vekkit you pay for the best technology and no to some resellers.
