Just like the engineers Hewlett & Packard, the gboost system was designed… in a garage !

Passionate about aviation, Guenther Hirn and Dominique Houzet have both been creating for their own use sustainable green mobility solutions, such as: a low fuel consumption two-seater airplane along with a lightweight and handy electrical system that allowed you to transport your bike onto the two-seater.

After their initial range “original”, designed and created for the brand Decathlon (1000 systems sold) which enhanced the ruggedness of the product, the creators, since 2013, lean on the knowledge and skills of the CEA‘s research clusters as well as on the STMicroelectronics, G2Elab‘s and the GIPSA-lab‘s to develop a new version even more powerful, compact, soundless, easy and quick to install.

It’s in 2016 that the start-up Ebike Lite France sas launched its new electrification device for bikes GBoost:

  • A lightweight, silent and discreet motor
  • An easy and quick universal installation
  • 5 levels of assistance thanks to the intelligent controller
  • Easy switch from the e-bike mode to your original bike mode
  • Ideal for the urban mobility !


Obsessed with smart mobility and pragmatic solutions, I like to help making the world a little better and see the results in the grin of happy people.
