In 2019, Peter Eiselin launched doppio as a solution to mobility problems in increasingly crowded cities. doppio is the ultimate two-seater e-bike, a crossover between e-bike and scooter. Since then, doppio has established itself as a sought-after and cool brand in cities and suburbs.
In 2021 doppio completed a successful crowdfunding campaign. In that year, Airbridge Equity Partners took a minority stake in Urban Mobility B.V. This enabled us to grow further in volume, develop our unique ecosystem and strengthen our presence online and offline.
In 2022 we will tripple our volume and achieve a positive result. These great results in combination with our proven premium quality, exceptional service level, unique ecosystem and many very satisfied customers form a solid foundation for further growth and economies of scale.
This year we opt for an equity campaign, so that investors become co-owners of our company. This way of financing ensures even greater involvement and creates a real doppio community. Together we want to enter our new growth phase.

What makes doppio special?
doppio is a true two-seater e-bike and has a unique position and attracts customers from the (e-) bicycle and (e-) scooter market. You move quickly through the city (or nature) in a healthy, safe and clean way. Sitting comfortably, together or alone, without traffic jams, driver’s license, helmet or parking problems. And that up to 25 km/h and just on the bike path. The independent test results in Bright and AD are convincing.
doppio has developed a unique ecosystem with service contracts, bicycle subscriptions and standard track & trace, which means that we are in direct contact with our customers 24/7. The new e-commerce platform with advanced 3D Configurator delivers an unparalleled customer experience that continues seamlessly and intuitively on other touchpoints.
