Company history

In 2009, while spending a year abroad, the chemist-to-be Philipp Walczak built his first electric bicycle. He retrofitted a Dahon folding bike with a hub engine made by a Canadian company, a pioneer in the electric bike market. This motor was powerful enough to conquer any slope without noise and emissions and especially effortless. Inspired by the design of the Tesla Roadster, also developed in California, he single-handedly built his first battery from lithium-ion cells, that are commonly used in laptop computers. Today these energy reservoirs have established themselves in electric vehicles due to their high energy density.

Back in Germany, MBA Thilo Gauch went on a test ride. From his enthusiasm for silent acceleration emerged this business idea: Plug-in-ready conversion kits consisting of motor, battery and accessories shall enable all customers to convert their bike into an electric bicycle. After developing a sustainable business model, Electric Bike Solutions GmbH (EBS) was founded in Heidelberg on June 22 2009.
