GeoOrbital Wheel: Switch Your Regular Bike Into An E-Bike

First Posted: May 05, 2016 06:20 AM EDT

The regular bike can now speed up with the electric-powered case of GeoOrbital wheel, which is a helm that can be exchanged with the regular wheel of bicycles to provide the bike with electric power in less than 60 seconds.

The GeoOrbital wheel is a fruition of the orbital wheel, which is the wheel of the Tron motorcycles. No tools are needed and everything that you need to power-driven your bike is on the wheel. The wheel can be installed in about less than 60 seconds.

The GeoOrbital wheel is empowered by a 500WBrushless DC Motor. It has a Panasonic 36V Lithium-Ion battery, which can last for about 30 miles on a single charge or up to 50 miles range with the use of pedal. A bicycle can go from zero to 20 miles per hour in just six seconds is impressive, according to Digital Trends.

The wheel is compatible with any bicycle. There are two sizes. In case your bike has a 26in, or 700 c (may also be well-suited with 29 in or 8 in) front wheel and has rim brakes, the GeoOrbital wheel is fitting, as noted by Kicks Starter.

The developers of the GeoOrbital wheel started its final pre-production last March 2016. It is expected to circulate in November. Its retail price is $950. On the other hand, with the Kickstarter campaign you can receive your own GeoOrbital wheel for only $649.
