Hooray! We've hit 100K: 200% of our goal!

Thank you Bike Friday community, we could not have done it with out your help! To say thank you we've unlocked the Candy Apple color (deep, rich and sparkly) as a new option for all Kickstarter pakiT supporters: 

pakiT E-assist Kit Designed by Electric Assist Expert and now Available to Kickstarter  Backers!


Lots of people have been asking for Electric Assist so we searched for the right expert to partner with. We found a great one in Grin Technologies with ebike Canada. Their 10 years of experience with a wide range of electric assist kits allowed them to design a special kit for the pakiT. This retrofit option gives you a 2 in 1 opportunity. With 2 front wheels you can turn your ultra light pakiT into a light assist bike in 5 minutes. When you just want to ride your ultra light pakiT then you just take off the e-assist front wheel and battery in 5 minutes and viola!

Retail Price: $ 1050
Kickstarter Backer price: $890 (save $160)

This is how you can order the e-assist kit for Kickstarter:

Because Kickstarter only allows one item per backer we are offeringthe kit as an add on after kickstarter ends. When the campaign closes next Wednesday (9/21) we will send out a survey to all the backers to choose: Color, Sizing, Accessories, E-assist Upgrade Option, shipping address, contact info.

We will follow up with you to get payment directly for the e-assist kit and any other upgrades you want.

The special price for Kickstarter Backers won't be available beyond our campaign wrap-up, so claim yours by ordering a pakiT through the kickstarter and marking you want an e-assist kit on the finishing survey follow up.

Only 6 days left!
