Wonderful winter afternoon riding around Auroville
Dec 2020
Gotta love serendipitous afternoons that end with an e-bike tour of Auroville.

I grew up in Chennai, two hours from Auroville. I'm shocked to say I have never seen Auroville in this light, on two wheels with Kinisi. It was lovely spending a winter afternoon cycling around the red-dusty lanes of Auroville, stopping at bakeries and the small shops and industries in this town, engaging with the locals en route.

If you want a workout, you can ride the bike as is. If you want a smooth/thrilling ride or a speed-boost, you can activate the electrical-assist in Kinisi. I was mildly surprised by how seamless the transition was and how easy it is to figure out how to use the bike. I have rented e-bikes around the world, and Kinisi was on-par/ if not better than anything I have ridden before.

It was also interesting to chat with Debo and meet the Kinisi team to see the engineering side of this e-bike. Their story, their drive (pun intended) to be sustainable and eco-friendly, was truly inspiring.

I can't wait to come back to Auroville with my cousins for fun rides around Auroville in the future.

A wonderful way to see Auroville
Jan 2020 • Friends
I rented an electric bike for 4 days and it was the best decision I could have made. Autoville is big and the weather gets pretty hot, so instead of trudging around on foot I decided to bike everywhere I went. I loved it! Kudos to the Kinisi team, which was very laid back and accommodating! Highly recommended

wonderful experience
Dec 2019
I enjoyed everything, starting from communication.. As I first came, nothing was available (wanted an e-bicycle), but a few days later they notified me over whatsup that I could come and pick up! Very good service, quick and efficient and friendly thank you! : ) It was my first experience with these vehicles, so I have no reference to compare.. It is great to explore Auroville on e-bicycle..! (expect for after a big rain.. you get very muddy behind.. ; )

Thinking of communing inside Auroville?
Dec 2019
We were on the way from Chennai to Pondy with an electric vehicle,deboo supported us with all arrangements for the group. Kinisi is doing good work as a part of the Auroville sustainable system.

Please check in their office to experience a carbon-free commute inside Auroville.

The office is located on the second floor.

Kinisi e-bikes enabled me to easily get around not only Auroville, but to Pondicherry, to Sadhana Forest, all around, without being exhausted as i would have been on a normal cycle. And without all the exhaust and pollution from motorbike 🏍 and 🚘 cars. I recommend! They even quickly swapped out my bike when the charger wasn’t charging well; didn’t have to give long explanations, which was great because i was in a hurry. Highly recommend!!

Riding around Auroville on a Kinisi
Aug 2019 • Solo
Had a fun time riding this bike. It’s an effortless ride. For people who aren’t used to cycling regularly, this battery enabled bikes makes it quite easy. And for those of you who want to sweat it, disable the battery power! A must try when in Auroville !

The founder Debo and his entire team strive everyday to scale up green commuting by providing an extremely affordable and efficient rental service. Their story is an absolute inspiration for all budding entrepreneurs aspiring to be changemakers. Bravo Debo, keep it spinning!
