Gaya, la marque de vélos électriques préférée des familles urbaines

Founded in 2021 by Amélie Guicheney & Jacques Bonneville, GAYA makes new mobility accessible in a reasoned approach. How? The company offers a new mobility concept with an affordable cargo bike, designed to ease the daily life of urban families. Customizable for each use.

Present in Paris, Lyon, Bordeaux and Nantes, the startup promotes French know-how through its affordable electric bike that comes in two lengths: The Compact and the Cargo.

What is GAYA’s Goal?  To become the favorite electric bike brand for urban families. So the company’s bikes are:

  • Scalable, with 160 kg of payload and the possibility to take several passengers.
  • Secure, with a remote locking system. 
  • Safe, with their turn signals, horn, headlight and brake light.

The result: more than 1000 city dwellers won over in less than 9 months! In 2022, the startup even opened a workshop-boutique on the banks of the Canal Saint-Martin, allowing customers to try out and repair their bikes.
