About Us - 2020

Our Story

It all started with a common problem…

EVELO traces its roots back to 2011, when our co-founder – Yevgeniy Mordkovich – was on a quest to find a solution that would enable him to spend more time riding a bike together with his wife. He built an electric bike from scratch for his wife which made it easy for both of them to keep up with each other and enjoy riding together on the same pace.

In the meantime, his brother and the other EVELO co-founder, Boris Mordkovich, was helping launch the world’s first person-to-person carsharing startup in Boston and San Francisco. This gave him first-hand exposure to how today’s society’s relationship with cars is beginning to shift.

Car ownership – traditionally viewed as a status symbol and a symbol of freedom – has started becoming more of a hassle, costly and inconvenients. People were looking for other ways to get around that were more practical, cost effective and fun.

When he saw the electric bike prototype that his brother, Yevgeniy, had built, it all suddenly came together.

Electric bikes represent something tremendously special. They open a door for the non-cyclist, the person who normally would not consider riding a bike because of hills, distance, age, fitness levels or even the simple inconvenience of arriving to work sweaty. An electric bike negates all of those stumbling blocks, letting non-cyclists turn around, get on the saddle, and enjoy every minute of it.

The brothers put their collective technology, transportation, and startup experience together to bring a stylish, robust, and affordable line of EVELO electric bicycles to market. They set out to build a company focused on helping the 99% of the population who are not avid cyclists to experience all of the joys, benefits, and fun of riding.

10 Years Of Making People Happy

Over the next decade, the founders, and the team at EVELO, continued their work to design, improve and bring to our clients electric bikes that were easy to use, fun to ride, and - most importantly - made the riders happy.

The industry changed dramatically over the years, with battery technology becoming lighter, designs becoming more elegant, and the popularity of electric bikes becoming more widespread all across the U.S.

Over this 10 year period, EVELO focused not simply on becoming the largest electric bike company, but rather on building a company that provided the best product and service to each of our individual customers. Every one of our customers has their own story and their own vision for what they want to accomplish. It is our honor to be a part of that process of helping them live a better, healthier and more active lifestyle.

We may not be the biggest, but we pride ourselves on treating every single customer relationship as one that will span the course of years. So when you come to us, you end up working with specific team members over the course of years - as you research the bikes, as you get and assemble it, and over multiple riding seasons.

Products That Stand the Test of Time

We focus on creating products and relationships that last. An electric bike is a product that people use for 3, 4, 5 years or even longer. Nothing makes us happier than to see clients report back that they’ve ridden thousands of miles and are still going strong years after they buy the bike. That’s why we focus not only on building reliable products, but we also back them with a 4-year, 20,000 mile warranty.

As we continue to grow, our clients now make their own records with some of them riding over 20,000 miles since purchase and many of them in operation for years and years since the original purchase.

We’ve been serving our customers for the last 10 years and will continue to do so every day for years to come.
