Bimotal started with a ski crash. Founder Toby Ricco suffered a knee injury and wanted to continue mountain biking, but couldn't manage the steep hills. He looked extensively at ebikes and conversion kits but did not find a solution that was as light, removable, or integrated as he envisioned possible.
Bimotal was founded to bring an ebike drive system unlike any other to market along with many more future solutions that enable clean and convenient multimodal forms of transportation. Founded in 2019 and based in San Francisco, CA, Bimotal’s mission is to transform the health of humans and the planet.
