  • This is the Copenhagen Wheel.

  • It turns your ordinary bicycle into a smart electric hybrid by simply replacing your back wheel, connected to your smart phone, download the app, and you're ready to go.

  • Bicycles are a great way to move around.

  • Sometimes distances are too long. Hills can get in the way. And hard journeys to work making you covered in sweat.

  • The Copenhagen Wheel is here to change all that.

  • The technology was developed over several years at MIT, together with the city of Copenhagen, one of the world's most innovative places for cycling.

  • Its original inventors licensed the technology and founded Superpedestrian, the starter where we are now working around the clock to bring the wheel to you.

  • Like the best riding companion, the Copenhagen wheel learns how you pedal, and integrate seamlessly with your motion.

  • It captures your energy when you break or go downhill.

  • And gives you push when you need it with 3 to 10 times your regular foot power.

  • It's easy. Ride it just like a normal bike.

  • As you pedal, the motor automatically kicks in with no additional throttles or buttons.

  • All technology for the Copenhagen Wheel is contained within the red casing, including motor, removable batteries, wireless connectivity,

  • smart locking, multiple sensors, and embedded control system.

  • Use your smart phone to customize your ride. Monitor your physical activity, gather information from your environment to share with your friends and fellow cyclist.

  • And if you're a software developer, you can even create your own biking apps.

  • So whether you carry yourself, your kids, or your gear.

  • Hills seem flat, distances shrink, and you can cycle just about anywhere.

  • So transform your bike and transform your city.

  • The Copenhagen Wheel.

This is the Copenhagen Wheel.
