Don’t need to purchase a brand new electric bike. Using Centinel smart electric bicycle wheel, you can turn your existing bike into ebike. Sounds cool? Let’s keep going.
The Centinel is an advanced all-in-one app-enabled smart electric bike wheel that weights 6.0 kg. Compared with Electron Wheel, the ebike wheel boasts a more simple and sleek design, but as of now, it only works with 26″ frame bicycles with rim brakes.
The electric bicycle wheel features a stable tri-spoke housing that holds all the necessary components. And detachable design not only allows you to customize the wheel by changing its cover, but also make Centinel easy to maintain. Moreover, you can easily change its detachable battery for longer riding distance.
Furthermore, the wheel also shows off a dual motor system that consists of two 180W motors in order to deliver you a maximum speed of 32km/h, and its 168Wh rechargeable battery allows you to ride up to 55km between charges. Moreover, its Pedal Assist System is able to provide suitable power based on the amount of force generated from the pedal, so you can enjoy relaxed and comfortable riding experience.
In addition, built-in Bluetooth technology allows the electric bicycle wheel to wirelessly connect with your smartphone. Using its custom app, you can remotely lock or unlock your electric bike and check the wheel’s overall status including battery level, speed, travel info. And you can track your location and trip via GPS.
The crowdfunding campaign for Centinel is ongoing on Kickstarter. You can pledge $499 to preorder the electric bike wheel. It will be shipped in May 2016 if reaching its crowdfunding goal.
