PRODUCT TEST: GEOORBITAL WHEEL

The easiest & cheapest way to make an e-bike?

There are a few bolt-on options out there for turning a traditional bike into an electric one. Some are sophisticated and require a bike shop to install. Then there’s the GeoOrbital wheel, which is wholly unique and is an entirely self-sufficient, powered front wheel.

The brushless DC motor is located internally, and instead of the hub motor being attached to the rim via spokes, the motor and battery are suspended in the center of the wheel by a triangular-shaped, aluminum uni-body assembly with two small wheels and an outdrive that runs against the inside of the rim and provides the drive.
