UrbanX wheel turns any bike into an electric

Why spend a ton of money buying trendy, but pricey electric bike when you can turn your old bike, especially since the startup UrbanX just offers affordable and practical solution! For all its obvious advantages, the bike will want to buy everything, but to change normal wheels to electric will want the many. «Smart» the wheels from UrbanX is made of aircraft aluminum and is available in two versions — UrbanX Booster on 350 watts and UrbanX Eco 240 watts.

Wheels bear the weight up to 140 pounds, despite the fact that they themselves are pulling just for seven along with a battery 3500 mA/h. the Stated capacity should be sufficient to help the cyclist to pedal up to 50 kilometers. The developers sell additional batteries of the same capacity which, by the way, not «stupid» the wheel — they have USB connectors, through which you can charge your smartphone. But it is useful — wheels cling to the handset via Bluetooth to inform the owner about the battery status, time travel, speed and distance traveled. There you can choose one of three modes of operation of the wheel.

Fundraising for the project just so the chance to participate is at all — UrbanX Eco is $ 299, and UrbanX Booster — just 399. Early investors may get to buy the wheels for this price. First deliveries are scheduled for early summer of 2017.
