Who are Boost?
Boost founder Nick Bailey created the kit as a solution to two major problems: firstly, those with bikes don't necessarily have room for a second if they live in the city; and secondly, not everyone has upwards of £1,200 to spend on an e-bike.
Nick is a keen engineer, and so he set about building his early conversion kits himself, sourcing the best motors, batteries and components he could – in addition to building his own control system to optimise the riding experience.
There was incredible demand for his product, which he sold on eBay, leading him to set up Boost bikes.
That same mantra of delivering the highest quality components in an affordable and accessible package, carries through to today.
Why conversion kits are so popular
Electric bikes are booming in their popularity amongst regular riders and those looking to take up cycling for commute, leisure, or fitness reasons – in fact more than 155,000 e-bikes were sold in the UK last year, which is triple the amount sold five years ago.
But, like with many new forms of mobility, the biggest barrier to joining the fun is price, which is exactly where e-bike conversion kits swoop in.
You could take your current bike, or even pick up a cheap replacement from a second hand store, and convert it for around £750, which is half the price of a good quality bespoke electric bike.
This way you can still access the incredible benefits of riding an e-bike regularly without the worries of a big financial commitment.
It's the cheapest way to get an e-bike, end of.
