The Smart Way to Make Your Bike Electric

Looking for an easy way to make your bike electric? So was I...

With the recent renewed interest in biking came a surge in electric bike sales. And it’s no wonder, they're fun - making a 30 minute trip feel like a 10 minute one. So, like so many people in the US, I was ready to get an electric bike - both for me and my daughter. But I didn’t want the expense of buying two new bikes - there was nothing wrong with either of ours. When I started looking at ebike conversion kits I found complexity and confusion. I wanted something simple, easy and fun...

And that's how SmartBikeWheel was born.

SmartBikeWheel is an innovative product that combines everything you need to make your bike electric in one compact, easy to install unit.

The motor, battery pack and controller are all integrated within the hub. And with bluetooth wireless communications built in, there are no unsightly wires, cables or sensors needed. All you need to do is swap out your front wheel and you can be enjoying the freedom and convenience of riding on pure electric power.

Smart Phone App

SmartBikeWheel includes a free Smart Phone App for either iOS or Android devices. This app lets you configure the SmartBikeWheel for optimal performance and doubles as a display. With the app you can set the level of assistance you want SmartBikeWheel to provide while you ride, plus, you can monitor your speed, battery consumption and temperature. Ride data is logged as well, so you can see how far you rode, average speed, top speed, uphill distance, calories consumed and more. We include a handlebar mount for your phone in the SmartBikeWheel package, but you don't need your phone to use SmartBikeWheel. SmartBikeWheel remembers your last settings, so you can enjoy your ride even if your phone needs charging or was left behind.

How SmartBikeWheel works

SmartBikeWheel uses a proprietary technology called SmartAssist. SmartAssist calculates the power you need automatically while you ride. It monitors your speed, the grade of the road and the assist level you select to determine the optimal amount of power to provide.
  • Traveling on a flat road? SmartBikeWheel gives you the assistance you need.
  • Going up a hill? SmartBikeWheel increases the assistance to cut your hills down to size.
  • Coasting down a hill? SmartBikeWheel knows not to assist.
  • And don't worry, power is stopped automatically when you brake. SmartBikeWheel really is that smart!.
  • Options

    Now, we know everyone is different, and some of you may want some control over SmartAssist. Don't worry - we've got you covered. SmartBikeWheel can use Smart Assist, Pedal Assist or a thumb throttle for manual control.
  • With an optional Pedal Assist Sensor in place, SmartAssist only operates, while you are pedaling, giving you a more natural ride experience.
  • Our optional Throttle/Display allows you to add extra power when you need it, while providing many of the display functions that a phone app provides.
  • Fits bikes new and old

    SmartBikeWheel comes with a rim and tire pre-mounted. We stock the most common size in the U.S., 26", and can get additional sizes for our international customers. SmartBikeWheel does need a front fork at least 4" (10cm) with standard dropout slots a bit over 3/8" (10mm).

    SmartBikeWheel is super easy to install because bluetooth.

    Bluetooth allows SmartBikeWheel to communicate wirelessly with an app on your iOS or Android smartphone. And the app is just a free download away. The app does so many things -
  • setup SmartBikeWheel and configure different options
  • controls for you to set your assist level while riding
  • a real-time dashboard with speedometer, power meter, battery and temperature gauge
  • a tracker for current and total ride data
  • even a virtual lock which sounds an alarm while magnetically locking the front wheel!
  • The App does so many things, you might not want to ride without it - but you could. SmartBikeWheel remembers your settings - including your assist level - so you don't need to carry your phone with you to enjoy SmartBikeWheel.
