Instantly turn your bicycle into an electric bike

Convert your bicycle into an electric bike in a few minutes just by replacing the bicycle’s conventional front wheel with the GeoOrbital wheel. This wheel is made of an aerospace-grade aluminium unibody, which houses a brushless DC motor, a Li-Ion battery and a motor controller. It is surrounded by a flat-proof tyre, which is made by filling a conventional tyre with special high-density foam. The kit includes a simple thumb-activated throttle that you can easily clip onto your handlebar.

The GeoOrbital wheel is available in two variants, which vary in size, battery power, weight and range without pedalling. You need to pick the size that fits your bike. The battery is also easily replaceable, so you can always carry a spare along to replace when required.
GeoOrbital works with any speed range, varied transmission components and in-hub brakes, different fork sizes and bike chain technologies. Also, as it does not interfere with your bike’s chain or rear wheel, you can get all-wheel drive by using the throttle while pedalling.

So, even after you have installed GeoOrbital, you can still pedal your bike like a normal one, if required. However, since GeoOrbital is heavier and offers more resistance than a normal wheel, the company suggests riding on a lower gear.

The Cambridge-based company sells the product online and delivers worldwide.
