This electric bike wheel is the result of a sincere effort to reinvent the wheel. GeoOrbital is a less expensive way to convert a regular bicycle into an electric one. The re-imagined wheel is battery-powered, very lightweight and fits on a standard bike. For less than $500 (the average cost of an e-bike is $1800), you can now make any typical two-wheeler an efficient electric bicycle.

The electric bike wheel is different because it stays still when the bike moves, instead of simply having enough power to spin the wheel. The GeoOrbital connects to the frame using front wheel forks. Cyclists have control using a handlebar throttle.

The compact invention was created by a team consisting of cyclists, engineers, entrepreneurs, industrial designers, inventors, manufacturing experts, rocket scientists (actually) and leaders in sales and marketing.
