Electron Wheel – An Electric Bike in 30 seconds

You’ve probably asked yourself, Why should I spend thousands of dollars on an electric bike when I’ve got a bicycle in the garage?

Well, probably because that’s where the bike stays – in the garage. If you’re like me and live in a hilly countryside, you would have to work up to bicycling around town. I used to drive my car to the gym each day, six miles there, six miles back on the nice days. Now I ride my electric bike. My husband rides his bike with me, but there are times he wishes he had an electric bike. Now, he can turn his bicycle into an electric bike in 30 seconds with Electron Wheel. He can have multi-gear, fixed gear. It’s amazing.

We found Electron Wheel at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), a company whose product was rated number one by ebike enthusiasts. The Electron Wheel is an all-in-one solution that converts your traditional bicycle into an electric bike, which works on pedal-assist. The Electron Wheel contains a powerful motor, smart & intuitive sensors, and an efficient battery that delivers plenty of kick to transform your ride. Just replace your existing front wheel and experience your bike in a whole new way. Really, it’s that simple.

They have an APP for that
You can easily download the Electron app and connect the Electron app. They’ve even engineered an app that lets you choose whether or not to use its features like distance and speed tracking, battery life readouts, assist levels, and ride mapping. If you don’t want to use the app, just calibrate your bike wheel once with their app, and then enjoy the ride.
