The UrbanX Team based in Los Angeles has created a new piece of hardware that can be installed on any existing bicycle and transform it into an electric bike in just 60 seconds.
Simply replace your front wheel with the UrbanX Electric E-Bike Wheel and enjoy the power of an electric bike, with a 30 mile range and a possible top speed of 20 mph.
Watch the video below to see how easily the UrbanX electric bike wheel can be installed on any bicycle offering an affordable way to enjoy an easier commute to work, or simply enjoy exploring with a little extra power behind you.
UrbanX is available from $299 with shipping expected to take place in a few months time during July 2017. Features include a 240W motor with a top speed of 15 mph, swappable battery packs, thumb throttle, phone mount, universal tyre and charger. The development team behind the innovative electric bike wheel explain more about its inspiration and design.
Install UrbanX in under a minute, swap out batteries in one simple click and squeeze the throttle to go electric or stay traditional and pedal as normal. he UrbanX Electric Wheel requires only a wrench, a screwdriver & one minute until you’re pressing the throttle on your new electric bicycle.
UrbanX’s one-click removable battery is compact, allowing you to charge your new ebike when and where it’s convenient for you. Easily double your range in seconds by tossing an extra fresh battery in your backpack or bike saddle bag then swap the new for the old in a single click. The choice of riding traditionally, all electric or somewhere in between is up to you.
