The “Made In Britain” eBike Company Moves Up A Gear

The “Made In Britain” eBike Company Moves Up A Gear.


Cyclotricity, the eBike company who established the UK’s first ever assembly factory for electric bicycles, has moved. Their Made In Britain campaign has been so successful they now need to recruit more people to build more bikes and, as a result, they re-located to much larger premises in Southampton in the New Year.


“We were selling around 60 eBikes a week but that has now increased to 100″ says Rami Akily, Cyclotricity’s CEO.  As well as enjoying increased awareness of their brand, Cyclotricity have also announced a distribution deal with Halfords, the UK’s largest bike retailer and, as if that wasn’t enough, they have also launched two new models.  They have updated their popular step through model, the Sahara, and also launched a new high spec folding eBike called The Wallet.


Akily added “The UK’s electric bike market is still at an early stage but the Made In Britain campaign has really helped to increase our sales.  People love the idea that we are assembling the bikes in the UK and they also like to know that, if they have any questions, we have experts ready to help either in the showroom or at the end of the phone.  We were sad to leave our original home but we just outgrew it and we had to find somewhere that would enable us to expand even further”.


2016 looks like it’s going to be an exciting year for Cyclotricity but Akily won’t be freewheeling at any point soon.  He is already exporting his bikes to Sweden but now has his sights set firmly on the US.

Client Testimonials

Hi Raj.
I just wanted to thank you for your kindness and help.
My dad who is 72 bought himself and his wife a kit each a couple of years back and he says it is the best thing he has ever done.  He stops and tells anyone who will listen that buying the bike has changed his life. He already had a bike but found it such a struggle to do anything other than ride around the streets so he didn’t really bother. He heard about electric bikes and went on a mission to find the best. He settled on Cyclotricity.  He started off cycling a short distance and then using his throttle to keep him going whilst he had a little rest.  Soon his fitness improved and now he goes out for miles and uses the throttle less but loves having the freedom to take on long distances. 
Best wishes
Dear Ben
I would just like to Thank you for the fantastic service that I received from your company. As you know I had an issue with my digital meter, I had a phone call from Ben at Cyclotricity the same day and this morning a new replacement had arrived.
This is fantastic service, I am so pleased that I purchased my bike through Cyclotricity. I will log onto your website and write a customer review and I am thinking in the summertime I may even purchase a electric bike for my wife, if and when I do I will certainly buy it through Cyclotricity.
Keep up the good work, I wish you all the success in 2017.
Normally people write in to complain but I feel that it's nice to tell people that they are doing things right.
Kind Regards
Christopher Mundy

Hi Raj,
I just want to thank you for all your support through this build. You were/ are a great help!! Thanks for getting the technical team involved where necessary!
I feel like I should hire a model to stand next to the bike, to be able to send you a very nice photo!! As it is I will be wise and you will appreciate it if the photo is only of the bike and doesn't have me anywhere near!!
Have a good day!
