Together we change urban mobility

We transform the urban movement by becoming car-independent

Looking at cities nowadays, we see that most streets are jammed by cars. This does not only lead to slow mobility; it is noisy and very toxic for humans and the environment.

With GLEAM we want to solve this problem and transform the urban movement by becoming car-independent. We know that transformation can only happen if you have a product that you can trust.

Therefore, we are in constant touch with our partners, to improve our bike according to your needs. Our goal is to reduce 100.000 tons of CO2 until 2025 by providing a Cargo eBike, which is built to last, and meets urban needs while it is also emission-free.

“Our goal is to transform
mobility and reduce CO2
emissions by 100.000 tons
until 2025.”

Our guiding values

Here are the core values that guide us on our journey to reach this goal:

Freedom

We build bikes that gives you the freedom to go wherever you want to go and do anything you want to do.

Efficiency

We listen to you to understand what you need in your daily life and we provide you a solution that increases your efficiency and reduces your ownership costs.

Reliability

We produce our bike in Europe and use the highest quality material to create bikes that are stable and last.

Sustainability

By being innovative and thinking in the long run, we want our bikes to be economically, socially and ecologically sustainable.

Our Story

The idea to GLEAM was born in 2010, when a Viennese Messenger was looking for the ideal vehicle for his daily job. The founder of GLEAM, Mario Eibl, a passionate cyclist and technical expert with start-up experience, therefore started to develop the very first GLEAM prototype.

Over the years, the GLEAM Cargo eBike was further developed in multiple R&D projects to the smallest detail. It also won various contests and awards such as the Urban Innovation Challenge by Forum Alpbach.

It was not too long until KIC InnoEnergy SE became shareholder and GLEAM was selected to be a company building project of WhatAVenture.

An important step for a successful serial production was the selection of our development and production partners: we developed the cargo eBike with the experienced motorcycles engineers from Ricardo (now Wheelab) in Italy and produce the frame with manufacturing partners in Italy’s “motor valley”.

We assemble the GLEAM Cargo eBike in our Smart Factory together with our partners Technologies Added. With all our partners we are working hard everyday to deliver to you our Gleam experience.
