The GeoOrbital bike wheel offers a new take on bicycles! With this item, one can cleverly swap ‘only’ the front wheel of a bicycle for it to become electric. The wheel itself is battery-powered allowing your bike to become electric in just 60 seconds. It’s available as a 26, 28, or 29-inch front wheel, fitting up to 95% of all adult bicycles.
The wheel has a durable flat-proof tire, an aluminum motor controller, a DC motor, and lithium-ion battery. The motorized wheel requires no tools for installation which itself takes around a minute. It then allows riders to travel at 20 miles/hour for nearly 50 miles.
The battery automatically recharges whenever the rider is moving (but not engaging the battery). The wheel is being funded on Kickstarter where it raised $1.2 million dollars making it available for pre-order at the GeoOrbital’s site with a somewhat pricey $800 tag!
