This innovative Swytch kit includes a handlebar bag, mounting bracket, a front wheel, brake sensors and a pedal sensor. Its installation is easy. Take out the front wheel of the bicycle, buckle the crank sensor ring around the BB shell, then you have to zip-tie the pedal sensor to the frame. After this, compress the brake sensors onto the cables and then install the handlebar bracket and bag.

The purpose of the handlebar bag is to carry the battery and has a display on the top. This display shows battery life. Also, you can turn on and off the bag’s integrated 500-lumen front light.
