Let’s talk bike share. We all know that there are many benefits that you experience when you take the fit, eco-friendly route: You burn calories. You reduce your footprint. You don’t have to deal with the hassles of ownership and maintenance. (Extra: you look good).
But what about the downsides? Getting passed by. Battling uphill (we are not naming names, San Francisco). Working up a sweat—on the way to the office. For these reasons, we introduce you to JUMP. JUMP just made a big announcement—read on.

JUMP is a new electric vehicle-sharing company that Uber recently acquired. That’s because JUMP is bringing innovation to the table.
For example, JUMP’s eye-catching red bikes are electric, and dock-less. You don’t have to find a station for the e-bike after your ride. JUMP changed the script and moved that technology—GPS, payment, and customer interface—into the bike itself.

JUMP improved the traditional hardware inside their e-bike. In fact, Core77 awarded JUMP with the Transportation Design Award of the Year. Chief Product Officer Nick Foley says that “the common failure points of a consumer bicycle have been re-imagined and re-engineered: screws, cables, exposed metals, removable components, etc. have all been protected and integrated.” He says this “is crucial to a theft-proof, weather-resistant vehicle.”
But using JUMP is easy. Download the app and locate a bike nearby. Unlock the bike and get pedalling—the e-assist feature will give you a boost! With each pedal, the 250 W class-1 motor will help you reach up to 20 mph. When you’re done, lock up in any designated area.

JUMP’s big news: Uber is also integrating a JUMP scooter-share system. JUMP just unveiled their reliable, electric scooters. Take a look. We are thrilled to get together with JUMP and learn more.
Scooter- and bike-sharing is growing in popularity around the world. And safety is a high priority of the new company. So Sawako is partnering with JUMP to promote helmets for you to wear during your e-bike or scooter commute.
Sawako was inspired by her commutes in London to design helmets for cyclists who need gear that keeps up with their style. Come check out a range of helmet colors and styles—from posh to glam rock—that will suit you on your commute!
JUMP is committed to providing a safe, reliable bike- and scooter-share system. We invite you to come out and learn more about the bike- and scooter-sharing startup and shop Sawako’s chic and functional helmets. With the purchase of a Sawako helmet, you’ll receive a free bike ride through the JUMP app! (One per customer and as supplies last.)
Take this chance to explore the transportation option that’s changing the game in the bike- and scooter-sharing world. With JUMP and Sawako together, you will connect with 2 brands that care about transforming our cities for the better—through forward-thinking, and safety in style.
