CLIP is a portable e-motor device designed to transform any on the world’s 2 billion bicycles into e-bikes, Instantly.

Biking to work every morning is one of the best things we can do for ourselves and the environment. What holds so many of us back is that no one wants to show up at their 9am meeting worked up in a sweat. Brief moments of extreme effort discourage committed bikers and foil the best intentions.
CLIP’s portable e-motor device is designed to solve this problem so more people can choose to bike more often.

What's Innovative About Their Solution?

Instead of positioning e-motors on bikes as a permanent feature, their unique approach provides e-motors as an on-demand upgrade. Additionally, their medium-term plan is to pivot to a rental model; commuters will have access to e-motors, 24/7, via a network of automated vending machines, strategically installed next to multi-modal nodes.
