How did we design & build the eDock?

It started with a simple yet somewhat challenging brief

It started with a simple yet somewhat challenging brief, set by our CEO, to create the best shared eBike experience in the world. This means taking a wholistic view of the experience including the eBikes, the docking and charging system and the end to end app UX.

Partnering with Dutch-Australian eBike brand Lekker gave us the perfect e-bikes to fit our needs, cool, sophisticated and high quality. On the other hand, our team searched the world for a docking solution that also met our needs but simply couldn’t find anything that fit with our vision from a design, functionality and product quality point of view.

What this meant was that if we wanted the best solution in the world our engineering team would need to design, develop and build a solution ourselves. So our team set to work on a docking and charging solution that is simple, beautiful and left users with an outstanding experience, just as we have with our market leading Ohmie GO shared EV user experience.

Our design mission 

Bike docking systems usually exist simply for functionality, without regard for design or aesthetics. The aim was to create a product which would be not only a technology leading solution but also visually appealing, from an industrial design point of view, so it could be placed in locations like hotel and premium building foyers.

Founder and CEO, Kyle Bolto said the team spent countless hours and effort obsessing over the details of the docking solution in order to get it right. 

In the same way that household names like Apple and Tesla differentiate their products through both technology and design, we set out to create a step change in design and style for an electric bike docking solution. We’ve named it the eDock,” - explained Kyle
“We thought long and hard about how an e-bike user on our platform would interact with our eDock from an interface point of view. Utilising instructive LED lights integrated into the eDock in conjunction with the Ohmie GO app to help guide users through each step of booking became a key design feature. From the moment you book an eBike on the app, you're met with design components that take you through the experience, with lights flashing when you first book the bike, to a pulsing green light when it’s time to pull the bike out,” - said Kyle

The final product  

We set out to create a product which our large global realestate and hotel clients would be proud to feature in the foyer of their gorgeous buildings. In the eDock we have created a solution that is not only state of the art technology but also visually striking, yet maintains a beautiful end-to-end flow with users.

We know users resonate with products that are not only functional but beautiful, why would shared e-bikes be any different?" - said Kyle

We’re excited to announce that some of our clients have already designed in our new automated electric bike docking and charging solution, eDock, and will be installed and initially offered with Lekker eBikes in some of the most amazing buildings across Australia in 2023.
