VANCOUVER, BC — OHM Electric Bikes, the award-winning pioneers of the e-bicycle industry celebrate 15 years of business through innovative technology.

Michael DeVisser, CEO
Michael DeVisser is the founder and CEO of OHM Electric Bikes since its inception in 2005. Michael is an entrepreneurial management university graduate with over 15 years experience in the e-bike space, making him an industry pioneer. Michael is driven by his lifelong passion for bicycles — road and mountain alike. Through the detailed craftsmanship and commitment to quality, it’s clear Michael won’t settle for anything less than the best for OHM riders.
COVID-19 has increased the adoption of e-bicycles as the population shifts its perception of public transportation. Even before the pandemic, pedelec e-bikes have increased in popularity across the globe since OHM was founded in 2005.
From a startup to one of the leading manufacturers in the e-bike space, OHM sets the standard by consistently delivering a premium product backed by over 15 years of industry experience. Always one step ahead, OHM takes customer feedback to refine and improve each model from the last to deliver an always-exceptional product.
Purpose-built frames are engineered for safety and come in four sizes and two colours. Highly customizable components ensure riders have the most comfortable experience possible and turn heads on the bike path.
The extra long-range battery allows riders to go further than ever before on a single charge. The powerful Shimano mid-drive motor is integrated and discreet, providing a natural riding feel.
E-bikes come with all the accessories needed for commuting: Alloy fenders, a rear rack, front and rear lights, rotary bell, and kickstand. The bikes weigh up to just 52lbs, making car rack attachment easy. 3 levels of pedal-assist are displayed on an easy-to-use cycle computer mounted on the ergonomic handlebars. Connectivity to a smartphone app provides more detailed statistics.
OHM e-bikes are built to last, minimizing time in shop and maximizing time on the bike path. OHM is designed to take you on any adventure — from the trail to the grocery store — and arrive sweat-free with a big smile.
Driven by a passion for bikes and founded on the principle that everyone deserves an exceptional riding experience, OHM knows what it takes to make great bikes.
