Pendix GmbH manufactures electric drives that turn almost any bicycle into an e-bike. The Pendix eDrive has been on the market since September 2015. Noiseless, compact, simple and aesthetic, it fits onto almost any bike. There are two different batteries for the drive: the ePower500 with a range of up to 160 kilometres and the somewhat smaller ePower300, which supports cyclists up to 100 km.
The company was founded in 2013 and the six founders had previously developed prototypes for the automotive and motorsports industries. Pendix GmbH currently employs over 40 people and generates sales in the single-digit millions. Investors include Technologiegründerfonds Sachsen, Mittelständische Beteiligungsgesellschaft Sachsen and AS Vantage Holding.
