Be Innovative

It’s as simple as that. Our founding philosophy guides us in all that we do, moving us to think beyond the box – to push the boundaries of design and engineering.

We believe that the future is shaped by the bold; and thus, we dream.

Chief Technology Officer
Alec has previously worked at a Fortune 500 company as a senior mechanical design engineer. His expertise and experience led to the creation of the first hubless wheel prototype based on an innovative novel design.

As a product designer and an avid cyclist, Alec always found passion in introducing innovative design elements in bikes. In 2016, Alec rejected a dream job offer at Shimano, and co-founded Beno Technologies with the goal of pioneering e-bike innovation and creating the perfect e-bike for the modern urban cyclist. Reevo is the result of that dream - an innovative hubless e-bike brought to life by a team of experienced engineers and manufacturing specialists. His expertise and experience led to the creation of the first hubless wheel prototype based on an innovative novel design.

When he’s not busy designing bikes, Alec can be found riding them and keeping up to date with the latest in the biking world. He also enjoys tinkering with mechanical things and has a slightly unhealthy obsession with devising new destructive tests for bikes.

Our Team

Our roots can be traced back to late nights in a messy garage; to elbow grease, solder burns, and bug hunting.

We’ve grown since those early days, but the spirit of engineering excellence and innovation remains.

Our commitment to sustainability

If just 15% of urban transportation miles were travelled by e-bikes, we could cut carbon emissions by 12%.

That’s why we’re going all in on electric mobility. Our aim is to enable a sustainable future without compromising design and practicality; and make efficient use of earth’s resources.
