Consequently designed for kids...

About us

How the whole story started...

Until July 2014 our personal perception of bicycles seemed to be "normal" - everyone of us had a conventional bike and those "new-fashioned" pedelecs were only known from hearsay. The first test drive with a totally unspectecular "City E-bike" changed everything and the pedelec mania took its course!.

Just 14 days after this "experience" I bought my first E-bike, less than three weeks passed by until my wife was biking electrically assisted.
You can imagine what happened next - our son Ben pronounced in a remonstrative manner that he won't make anymore bike trips with us. 
Try to explain to your child why you ride e-bikes for more convenient mobility while they have to pedal non-assisted. That's really a challenge!

 

We had to find a solution for that problem - but unfortunately there were no pedelecs available at that time that have been designed for kids.
So it was up to us to fill that "gap" - that was the day when the idea of the Ben-E-Bike was born, named after our CTDO (Chief Test Drive Officer) Ben who's now already eight years old.
Fortunately there was one kid's bike manufacturer who liked our idea and supported us in many ways. The company PYROBIKES contributes some key components to the Ben-E-Bikes and that's why its owner, Jürgen Fischer is a valued member our our team.

Development and assembly in Germany

Even if most of the parts for the Ben-E-Bikes are sourced in Far East, the whole development and the final assembly takes place in Germany. By no means this is the job of a subcontractor who is focused on high volumes. On the opposite - all Ben-E-Bikes are carefully made in a small bike manufacture in the Greater Area of Hildesheim / Lower Saxony.
For each single bike exists a comprehensive inspection protocol that records every important step during production.
So you may rest assured that every Ben-E-Bike is shipped in simply perfect condition.
