Originally created by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in cooperation with the city of Copenhagen, the Copenhagen wheel is an ingenious electric bicycle replacement wheel that uses a 350 Watt motor and 48 Volt Lithium battery to convert your bike into an electric bike.
In as little as fifteen minutes you can convert your bike to electric and switch it back to pedal power whenever you choose.
We have Copenhagen Wheels in stock to convert your bike on the spot. Bring your trusty ride to Electric Cyclery for the ultimate upgrade.
Electric Cyclery provides free installation with any Copenhagen Wheel purchase.
“Technology never seen on any vehicle. Way, way ahead of the curve.”
As you pedal your bike, the Copenhagen Wheel senses, analyzes, and reacts to your pedal pressure, speed, and pedal position over 100 times per second, instantly amplifying your pedal strokes in a natural and instinctive way.
Electric Motor, battery pack and controller are all enclosed inside Copenhagen Wheel. This is the cleanest, most seamless electric bike conversion kit available. There are no wires, switches or bulky external batteries. It is all in the wheel – a masterpiece of transportation design.
Customized Riding Modes
Choose from Turbo, Standard, Eco, and Exercise modes in the Copenhagen Wheel smartphone app to customize your ride experience. The Copenhagen Wheel app also provides navigation, precise battery level and a security lock mode to safe-guard your bike.
Slow down at stop signs, safely ride down hills, and regulate a safe speed in traffic, just by backpedaling. This “electronic coaster brake” technology is maybe the coolest feature of the Copenhagen Wheel. This Wheel brakes and captures energy, recharging the battery.
Mid-drive electric bike systems can’t do that.
