Even the most dedicated athlete has wanted a little help when pedaling a bicycle up that big hill. This is particularly true of regular bicycle commuters and other people who use their bikes for the business of getting around rather than the pleasure of a nice summer joyride.
Inspired by the futuristic orbital wheel design of the motorcycles in the sci-fi movie Tron, the GeoOrbital wheel replaces your standard bicycle front wheel to transform your bike into a dynamic electric bike.
With the exception of a small thumb-activated throttle, which is clipped onto your handlebar for ergonomic ease of use, everything that you need to add electric power to your bike is contained within the GeoOrbital wheel itself. This wheel is internally driven by a removable Lithium-Ion battery that provides pedal assistance for up to 50 miles on a single charge. Perhaps even more remarkable, riders can travel as many as 20 miles without pedaling at all.
The GeoOrbital wheel requires no tools whatsoever to install. The typical bike owner can replace his or her old front tire with the GeoOrbital in less than a minute. Those who want to switch back and forth between assisted and unassisted cycling can rapidly learn to install and uninstall the GeoOrbital in approximately 30 seconds. The various sizes of GeoOrbital wheels are universally compatible with all types of rim brake bikes.
