TRON inspired Technology that turns your Bicycle Electric – GeoOrbital Wheel

The GeoOrbital wheel is new revolutionary gizmo that will transform your old bike into a powerful electric one. All that under a minute! This impressive piece of technology will help you commute on your bike without exerting more energy then you see fit. We all know that getting around by bike is way easier. Not to mention that it is better for the environment. Over the course of 2 years a team of engineers from SpaceX and Ford worked hard to make the best possible electric bike solution. The product they created is powerful, affordable and extremely easy to use and install. After thousands of miles of testing and hundreds of happy riders GeoOrbital launched in May 2016 breaking internet with its huge success on Kickstarter.

I don’t know about you guys, but I am deeply impressed by this gadget. Everything needed to power your bike is included in the wheel. Smart, adaptable design allows us to to integrate a wide range of components into the wheel itself. And to top it all off, the GeoOrbital wheel is compatible with nearly every bicycle. Take a look!

The wheel comes in 2 sizes to cover over 95% of all adult sized bicycles. If your bike has a 26in, or 700c (also compatible with 28in and 29in) front wheel and uses rim brakes, the GeoOrbital wheel fits! Sometimes you just need the speed. You need to accelerate faster than cars at an intersection or just want to get home after work? Our class leading 500W Brushless DC motor will get you to 20 miles per hour in just 6 seconds and you can always pedal to go even faster.

We use the highest quality Panasonic 36V removable Lithium-Ion battery with a pedal assisted range of up to 50 miles per-battery. With little to no pedaling you will go about 20 miles on a single battery. The more you choose to pedal the more range you can expect, and you can always take a spare battery with you for longer rides.

An Orbital wheel is a wheel with no center – it “orbits” around an empty area, rather than spinning as a result of being connected to a “hub.” For example have you seen the movie TRON? The wheels on those motorcycles are examples of Orbital Wheels (or Hubless wheels and Centerless wheels). The GeoOrbital wheel is an evolution of the Orbital wheel platform. Instead of orbiting around an empty space, the center of the wheel contains components that make the wheel function as an “all-in-one” vehicle propulsion system. We call this central mass a “Geo.”

By using the latest hi-density foam technology the tires act and weigh the same as a traditional bike tire, but you will never get a flat. Never! With our built in USB outlet you can charge your phone, bike lights, or even a speaker on the go. Remove the battery from the wheel to have a massive portable power bank to take with you.

Sometimes you just need all-wheel drive. Just like being in a car with all-wheel drive you have a lot more stability and control in harsh environments. The GeoOrbital wheel performs great in all weather conditions. And if you pedal while using the wheel you will have all-wheel drive when you need it most.
