We're a team of designers, engineers and cyclists based in Cambridge, UK, inspired by the amazing cycling culture of our city. We love the way that cycling makes Cambridge feel more human and connected, and the sense of freedom it gives you.
Dave and Alex (co-founders) met in 2015 whilst studying in Beijing. Electric bikes were their fast and fun way of zipping between lectures, and sparked their interest in how ebikes could be used elsewhere. Dave, as an ex-Jaguar Land Rover engineer, had always dreamed of developing his own electric vehicle, whilst Alex’s study of transport policy had convinced him that our cities could be happier and healthier places to be. Together, they wanted to create a product that made city travel effortless, whilst fitting neatly into your lifestyle.
They moved to Cambridge, the cycling capital of the UK, to begin the FLIT story with just a few ideas on a piece of paper. Since then, the FLIT team has turned those early pencilled sketches into a simple folding bike, designed from scratch to be electric."
FLIT often take on interns and work placements and are keen to take on young people for additional opportunities in the future.
FLIT are always on the look for new talent, if you're interested in joining the team get in touch!
