GeoOrbital, a startup based in Boston and fully funded by Kickstarter has created an electric wheel that has to be attached to the front wheel of the bicycle to make it an electric- powered wheel within two minutes. Electric bikes are more than a decade old now. However, they haven’t been so successful as they should be at this stage, where the world is depending on technology for every single action. Hence, this idea came into existence of only creating a universally compatible electric wheel for bicycles, instead of electrically powered  bicycles.

The electric wheel features a USB port to charge your devices while you are on the go. The recharging process starts as you pedal, brake or ride down the hill. In additional, the durable wheel possess a lithium-ion battery that can boost your speed upto 32 kmph around 80 km. Most importantly, there are no chances of this wheel of getting punctured.

GeoOrbital weighs between 11-17 pounds, depending on the model. You need not have to use any tools to install the wheel. It assures a speed of 20 miles per hour. All you have to do is pedal faster to speed up.

The shipping of the product will start in November this year. Currently, you can avail it from the company’s Kickstarter campaign for $650.

  • The project is fully funded by Kickstarter.
