A revolutionary plug-and-play system has been created by Frank Fox called the go-e ONwheel, that allows you to transform a standard pedal bike into an electric bike in just a few seconds.
The small and lightweight electric motor uses a companion smart application that can be loaded onto your smartphone to enable you to control the settings of the motor as well as see statistics about you various cycle rides.
Watch the video below to learn more about this unique device from its developers who explain a little more about their new electric bike motor that cycling at a moderate power level should be able to provide approximately a 60km battery range.
The go-e ONwheel motor is environmentally friendly. With this additional drive unit it will be much easier to leave the car in the garage and go to work by bike. You can mount and demount the motor from your bike in just five seconds! The motor only engages when you are pedalling, otherwise it does not touch your wheel. It is the ideal supplement for your bike because you can now use your favourite bike as an e-bike whenever you want!
With the ONwheel motor you are much more flexible than you are with a conventional e-bike. You just mount it when you would like to drive with additional power; otherwise you can leave it at home or turn it off. You can adjust the amount of additional power with buttons on your handlebars or turn it off completely. Sensors are detecting if you are pedalling, and if yes, the motor engages and drives your rear wheel with up to 800W of additional power.
When we deliver your go-e bike ONwheel motor, it is set to 250W and a maximal speed of 25 km/h in order to meet EU-regulations. You can set the maximal amount of assistance (e.g. off, 25%, 50%, 75% or 100% of maximal assistance level) with the buttons on the handle bar or in the go-e.bike app. go-e has adjustable power levels.
