The FLYER Story – the Swiss original since 1995

The FLYER originated from a need to get around and was developed in several stages. After the first prototype of an electrified bicycle, “Red Buffalo”, hit the road in 1993, the company BKTech AG produced a small series of a first serial product from 1995 to 1999: the FLYER Classic.

FLYER F Series, 2000 - 2003 model years

This was followed by the innovative FLYER F Series – the first FLYER with full suspension, a sporty design, and innovative technology.

FLYER C Series, 2000 model year - present

With the FLYER C Series, Biketec AG (the successor to BKTech) built Europe's first electric bicycle using lithium-ion technology in 2003. This significantly reduced the weight and massively increased the range. The low step-through height, solid and reliable technology, and user-friendliness emphasise the clear focus on customers. Still today, the C Series enables a broad public, including in particular elderly people, to ride a bicycle.

Today, e-bikes are an integral part of individual solutions for getting around, and FLYER offers premium e-bikes for all customer needs in three segments: Tour, Urban and Mountain.
