Strategic Partners

At e-bikesdirect, we believe in forming lasting commitments, to our customers, our suppliers and our partners. As the UK’s largest online supplier of Electric Bikes, it’s imperative for us to partner with companies we feel aligned with, companies who share the same drive, passion and determination that we’ve felt ourselves for 16 years. We have seen that and then some with Beacon Bikes, and we are genuinely excited about the next chapter in delivering first-class service and support.

The partnership with Beacon Bikes was organic and fluid from the very beginning, our visions and goals were the same – to provide market leading electric bikes, whether for hire or for sale.

The partnership allows us to look at more ways than ever for our customers to engage in test-riding and renting a number of options before purchase.
