This innovative kick bike design includes electric kick-assist technology that helps extend a ride and propel riders forward.

The 'Smart Ped' is a foldable kick bike with an all-in-one electric motor located in the rear tire. Every time a user kicks the bike forward, the electric motor is automatically engaged to help maintain the speed reached. From using this new 'Smart Wheel' technology, the Smart Ped is able to continue rolling forward at a maximum speed of 16 mph for up to 500 seconds at a time.

The steel framed bike also comes with Bluetooth technology and can be synced with an app offering different routes to take, track your activity stats and even lock the bike wheels through your smartphone.
