Intra Drive seeking investors to bring e-bike powertrain to market

Intra Drive has set out on the next phase of bringing its innovative e-bike motor/gearbox to market.

The company will be displaying its latest powertrain technology at this week’s Eurobike, which kicks off Wednesday, 13th July, in Hall 8.0, Stand G34. Orange Bike (12.0 / D23) will be displaying a full-suspension bike featuring an Intra Drive prototype gearbox drive unit with Gates belt drive. The frame, drive unit, and majority of the parts on the bike have been manufactured in Europe.

With its technology mature, rideable prototypes in use and UK supply chain being built, Intra Drive is now seeking investors to be part of the next phase in bringing its e-bike powertrain to market.

Intra Drive founder Mark Revilious said: ”After six years of working full time on the development of the drive unit, we’ve now de-risked the technology, have a stable design, and proven demand.

“We now need to accelerate development and move to production. We’ve reached the most exciting stage yet of our company’s progress and are seeking investment to complete industrialisation, testing, start production, expand operations, and grow our team.”
