eBikeLabs was born in 2015 from the passion and realization that the e-bike market was promising. As the main owner and founder, Maël Bosson built his own e-bikes as a hobby as well as out being convinced that e-bikes are much more convenient than cars for short distance travel in and around crowded cities. As Grenoble is based in French Alps, Mael also built e-bikes capable of working in mountains. He then quickly realized that the main way to build a sustainable e-bike is to focus on the vehicle controller, i.e. the component that controls the motor and other e-bike elements.
After his PhD, Mael set up eBikeLabs, and he also met like-minded people Pierre-Louis Jourdan, Raphaël Marguet and Cyrille Romera. Together they assembled a team and started to work towards the mission to make e-bikes accessible to everyone.
