Greyp bikes have just announced the launch of their US operations, with a US-specific website and selected retailers. The Croatian brand have also announced their new Greyp iOS app. Read on for the official press release.
Greyp Bikes is the brainchild of Mate Rimac who is no stranger to electric vehicles: He’s the founder of Rimac Automobili, the brand behind two of the fastest-accelerating cars ever to burn up a track, which also happens to be fully electric. US operations will be run from their San Pedro, California office under Managing Director Allyson Vought, a former multiple US National Champion cyclist and long-time industry veteran with over 30 years’ experience.
While Greyp is new to the US market, it launched its first E-MTBs in Europe over a year ago, and the industry quickly took notice: winning trade show awards and the coveted 2020 Design & Innovation Award for technology and apps. That, combined with their experience in adjacent technologies, should spell success in the States, says Vought: “Nobody else is doing what Greyp is doing with the integration of tech, connectivity and MTB spec. Hopefully that, plus our reputation building some of the world’s coolest e-vehicles will result in a very successful launch and future in the US. We feel these bikes push the limits of what e-bikes can do, both physically and electronically, and we’re confident their popularity in Europe will be repeated in the States.”
What sets Greyp completely apart from the crowded E-MTB market is the host of high-tech connectivity and data offerings, when paired with the mobile apps – from front/rear built-in video cameras to full 4G and Bluetooth connectivity. The Greyp iOS app is out and available for download in the App Store. Also, two important novelties are following the release of Greyp iOS app: Greyp Android app update & new bike software. There are many reasons Greyp made this release but to name a few:
- pairing is facilitated via QR code scan, richer information is added on display, different time zones are supported, the security of the system is increased, ride metrics are improved.
- software updates to the bikes and mobile apps on both iPhone and Android platforms are Over-the-air (OTA).
- Greyp fully switched from USB to WiFi communication
