About

Meet the first electric walking bike. An innovative way to get from A to B. Walking at a regular pace and reaching speeds up to 25 km per hour! The Lopifit has been designed to get you up your feet and travel larger distances in less time. Never before has it been so fun to walk and get around easily. The Lopifit supports your natural stand and comes with all the health benefits related to walking.

The electric walking bike is a combination between a kickbike and a treadmill. Because of the battery and electrical engine you can walk on the treadmill and move forward at simular speeds of a bike. The brakes shut down the electrical circuit and shut down the power supply, making the belt stop moving. You can shift between 6 gears so that you can adjust your speed accordingly.

From the idea Bruin had to get his treadmill outside and moving he started to build an electric walking bike. He calculated, tested and adjusted the bike based on his findings. It was a process of fine tuning and looking for the best results. The final product ended up being the one Bruin used for going to work and back. His dream of an electric walking bike came to life!

Bruin Bergmeester invented and build the first prototypes in his living room. After joining forces with a welder he made the first electrical walking bike that was user-friendly and worked perfectly! Bruin started using it to walk to work and back. People noticed his strange looking “bike”. A local tv station interviewed him and the video got shared world wide. More than 80 million people have seen his invention.

We believe that we have an innovative product that can change the way we move. Kickstarter is the platform for start ups with new products. World wide people have shown us great support and customer feedback. Without social media we would have never been where we are now. In return we want people to be able to enjoy our product and we hope you backers can support us in making this happen!

We need people who love the concept and want to take this project to the next level and beyond!

Our goal is to make the electric walking bike available for as many people as possible. We want to change the way people move. We wish that everyone can benefit from a greener and cleaner way of transportation that simultaneously improves your health. This can be realised when we start producing in larger scale. Upuntil today we have produced in lower quantity, resulting in higher prices and lower availability. Our goal to upscale the production process and produce in mass will get us better prices and make the electric walking bike more affordable.

The funds raised will be used for:

  • Scaling the production process
  • Mass Production and distribution of the electric walking bike

Additional funds will be used for:

  • New designed frame for looks and weight improvement.
  • Performance upgrade for more range
  • Setting up assembly locations at key point around the globe
  • Building a network of resellers and service points

Please note: Backers are responsible for sales taxes and import duties, which will vary according to the country, state or province to which the reward is being shipped. Please use the following duty calculator to determine the estimated import duties and taxes for the electric walking bike in your respective region. The HS code is 87119010.

We offer a 2 year warranty on the frame, belt, engine, sensors and battery. All our suppliers have been selected on durability and quality.

Risks and challenges

We already have a manufacturing partner who produced the first batches of electrical walking bikes. If our campaign is a big success, which we hope, and we would encounter high demand, we will be able to scale production and logistics accordingly. Since our video went viral we have extended our network of relations that are willing to assemble and distribute our product . They are standing by and waiting for us to give the go-ahead.

Most of the components are standard bicycle parts. They come from several suppiers that we're already working with and all necessary arrangements are already made. Making adjustments is always risky, but we have an engineering team behind us with lots of experience and by doing the testing we will assure that the product works accordingly. Nevertheless we can't plan everything ahead and working with a third party may result in unexpected delays.

We will keep our backers well informed throughout the entire process of production, assembly and shipping to ensure everybody knows when to expect delivery of the electric walking bike.

Every pledge amount brings us one step closer to our goal. Be a part of bringing the electrical walking bike widely available at a affordable price. Help us change the way people move!
