The Copenhagen Wheel transforms your bicycle into a smart electric hybrid, quickly and easily. The Wheel contains a motor, batteries, multiple sensors, wireless connectivity, and an embedded control system. The Wheel learns how you pedal and integrates seamlessly with your motion, multiplying your pedal power 3x—10x. It makes hills feel flat and distances shrink, so you can cycle just about anywhere.
Copenhagen Wheel actively measures how you ride, augmenting your pedal power. We haven’t designed a throttle for your bicycle, but something that organically integrates with how you ride.
As you bike, Copenhagen Wheels captures energy from braking or going downhill. The energy recharges the battery, extending your range.
An array of sensors constantly measure riding conditions, adjusting automatically. Copenhagen Wheel knows when you’re biking up hill, and steps in to give an extra push.
Wireless, compact and simple - all self-contained in the IPX4 weather resistant red Wheel. No running wires, just install and go.
Copenhagen Wheel connects through your smartphone, allowing you to select performance modes, gain insights into your riding, and provide your city with valuable anonymized data, if you choose.

It’s rare that a company comes along and reinvents the wheel, but it looks like that is about to happen.
