Ideas & thoughts

We didn't plan to develop a handlebar computer to change current motor power. We thought that a mobile phone can do it very nicely. But after a few thousands of test kilometers, it became clear that our kit needs a remote control (not a mobile app). Why? The main answer - it's very hard to switch a power mode using a touch screen during a ride. From another side, it's not easy to put a phone on a handlebar each time - for example, during a rain. That's why we decided to develop a remote control for Vekkit e-bike kits.
