The Copenhagen Wheel All-In-One Electric Bike Kit Now Available [VIDEO]

A few years ago the innovative Copenhagen Wheel with a complete electric bike kit in the rear hub was announced and now it is available for sale for $699 (limited edition)!

Checkout this video to get an idea of how the Copenhagen Wheel works:

All-in-one electric bike kits like the Copenhagen Wheel are pretty cool because all you have to do is replace your wheel and you have an e-bike.

With wireless smartphone connectivity it keeps the bike looking clean.

At a price of $699 it opens the door to many people who would like to have an electric bike for commuting and fun.  $699 is an introductory price for the first 1,000 wheels.  After that the price will be $799.

The Copenhagen Wheel features:

Assist Type: Pedal assist only, no throttle.

Motor: 350 watt motor in the US, 250 watt motor in Europe.  Regenerative braking.

Battery: 48 V lithium.  ? Ah, 1000 charge cycles.  4 hour charge time.

Top Speed: 20 mph in US, 25km/h in Europe

Stated Range: 31 miles (50 km)

Weight: 13 lbs. (5.9 kg)

Wheel size options: 26″ or 700c

Gearing: Single speed or 9/10 speed freehub.

Smartphone compatibility: iOS (iPhone), Android.  Bluetooth 4.0.  The smartphone app adjusts pedal assist settings and locks or unlocks the wheel.  It also provides you with info ride info that can be shared with your friends.

The Copenhagen Wheel was the original all-in-one electric bike kit but since then there have been others that have come to market.  The FlyKly Smartwheel is very similar to the Copenhagen Wheel and the Electron Wheel is a front wheel that is an all-in-one kit.

It is exciting to see all of these developments in the electric bike world.

E-bike systems like this have the potential to help more people commute by bike.

What do you think?  Would you or a friend be interested in the Copenhagen Wheel?

    Hi, Pete. Do they know when the Copenhagen wheel is expected to be completed for purchase? I see they are taking pre-orders now, but I have not seen an expected availability date.

    Hi Pete!

    Will this wheel work for those of us who do not have a Smart Phone?

    Ralph Bieker asked my question for me.

    Hi Pete,
    What is the battery voltage, the range and wattage of the Copenhagen wheel? I have 500 watt hub motor drive KITS for $250 (includes controller, twist throttle & brake lever assemblies that cut out the controller when the brakes are applied). The controller has extra leads for stop lights and battery charge state lights (High=grn, Med=yel, Low=red) and with a 36 volt SLA pack that is a total of about $400, which is about $300 less than the Copenhagen wheel…and I’d bet its faster, has more torque for climbing a hill and goes further. My number is 480-516-6487 if you’d like to call me to discuss the differences between the Copenhagen wheel and the KITS we are offering. Love to talk to you!!
