01. About matebike.uk
The coolest company on 2 wheels
We are Matebike.uk, part of Mate.bike, a Copenhagen-based startup founded in 2016 by the siblings Christian Adel Michael and Julie Kronstrøm Carton who want to engage today’s challenges of dense traffic congestion, climate change and health issues in general by creating unique, fun and affordable electric bikes.
We want to make the best and coolest eBikes for any rider, any journey, any situation. By making eBikes cool, sexy, practical and affordable, we wish to take bicycling global as the preferred mode of transportation for more people in urban areas. Our mission is simple: More miles on bikes.
In 2016, we launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo raising $6.8 million for the original MATE. In July 2018, we launched our second crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to fund the new MATE X. This campaign has to date raised more than $13 million, making it the most successful European crowdfunding campaign in history.
The world is facing serious challenges when it comes to both the environment and our health. How we transport ourselves is a major part of these problems; according to National Household Transportation Survey, car trips in the US of less than one mile add up to 10 billion miles per year – which according to United States Environmental Protection Agency is the equivalent of 4 million metric tons of CO2 emitted every year.
By changing your commute from driving a car to riding a bike, you will not only cut your CO2 emission you will help your local community getting rid of pollution and you will also improve your health while increasing the quality of your life. This is why the biking revolution lies at the heart of Mate.bike and why our mission statement is: More miles on bikes.
02. The revolutionary bikes
Incorporating the very best of design and functionality to bare the brunt of everyday life, there’s a mate for you
We believe that the MATE range of bikes are the world’s coolest, foldable electric bikes. They are envisioned and developed with nothing but pedal-love in the cycling capital of the world, Copenhagen Denmark.
Our bikes boast powerful electric motors ranging from 250W to 750W (1000w for the Moncler x Mate X) and we’ve geared the bicycles with top-tier specs like Shimano gears, Tektro disc brakes*, USB ports and LED screens for managing the settings.
*optional hydraulic brakes, for fingertip precision can be selected on the Mate X range.
Every thought behind design, upgrades and additional details have been made while continuing to ensure that our eBikes are both affordable, fun and awesome looking. They turn heads wherever they go and at the same time offer a smooth ride with good conscience. Only the best for our MATEs.
