Hello from Copenhagen!
MATE is a Copenhagen based e-bike and lifestyle company. We were founded in Denmark and launched one of the most successful Global crowdfunding campaigns to get us started in 2016.
The intention then, and now as a bigger company with a wide array of investors, (Jay-Z is one of our co-owners, through his Marcy Venture Partners firm) is to become the coolest e-bike on two wheels.
Since launch, due to its sleek design and stylish appearance and strategic collaborations with luxury brands Moncler, Palm Angels and with the B-corp Evian, MATE has become the fashion forward e-bike brand loved by celebrities and future facing style conscious citizens around the world.
MATE e-bikes have a number of unique selling points. One is the practical design of the bike. Not only is it a folding bike that folds in half, you can fold the handlebar bar stem down, allowing riders to stow the bike in an apartment, office store or cloakroom.
MATE e-bikes also have phone charging capabilities, 8 gears, full suspension and well as a discreet battery that’s hidden away. Affordability is another point. The Mate X and MATE City are priced very competitively at around £2000, making it easier to make a switch from car to bike, or cut down car use in the city.
MATE’s arrival in the UK at two sites in London and one in Manchester is perfectly timed. Demand for e-bikes surged 50% in 2021 as British people sought alternative modes of transport to the car which are sustainable, healthy and, above all, fun.
