as desirable as electric bicycles are, forking out for an e-bike can seem like an excessive price to may when your old ride still functions perfectly well. luckily, the team at urbanX have created a smart wheel that simply clicks onto your bicycle in the place of the front wheel, and instantly converts it into a fully functional electric bike that can reach speeds of 20 MPH. with a 350 W battery, the urbanX electric wheel means you don’t have to compromise on style, or change the bike model you love, to be able to cycle to work without breaking a sweat.
available in six sizes, the electric wheel fits any size and type of bike and works with both rib and disc brakes. any tire can be used with the urbanX, so long as it fits the rim size of the device. the wheel can be installed with just a wrench and a screwdriver in 60 seconds—all the rider need do is swap out the front wheel, secure the throttle to the handlebar, and connect the wheel to the throttle cable. the wheel comes with a removable battery pack which clicks on and off, meaning the bike can still be used whilst the battery is charging.
