Convert Any Bike to an Electric Bike
Replace your bike wheel with the UrbanX Electric E-Bike Wheel for 30 mile range & 20 mph top speed.
See What The Experts Are Saying About UrbanX:
With an all-in-one electric bike wheel, which includes the motor and the battery in one unit, it's possible to own a drop-in e-bike wheel that can be quickly installed or removed, depending on how or where you're riding, without having to own a completely new bike.
UrbanX boasts 350 watts of power, a 20 MPH top speed, and 30-mile range on a single battery, according to the company. They’ve packed that into just 15 pounds. Perhaps most impressive of all is the company’s claim that it takes just 60 seconds to attach the UrbanX.
Crafted out of aviation-grade aluminum and weighs in at a slim 15 pounds, so it won’t make your bike uncomfortably difficult to handle.The light weight doesn’t mean the team skimped on strength, as the wheel is rated to handle up to 300 pound (136 kilogram) loads.
While UrbanX is not the first to come up with a design that puts the motor on a wheel -- the Copenhagen Wheel has that honor -- it's a lot cheaper compared with the Copenhagen Wheel's $699 price tag. Retailing at $299, UrbanX converts you bike into a 15 mph beast.

Energy Efficient In Any Riding Mode.
The UrbanX energy efficiency algorithms allow for a compact and lightweight drive-train that allows for full-electric or traditional pedaling with a 3 level hybrid assist option.
UrbanX has 3 Riding Modes with Pedal Assist (PAS) Having 3 levels of Assistance.
With pedal assist mode, UrbanX senses your pedaling, and the motor kicks in to help based on how fast you pedal and your selection of the 3 levels of assistance in the UrbanX app.
- Full-Electric Mode - Sit back, relax and press the throttle down on your new eBike and allow the UrbanX Electric Wheel do all of the work.
- Pedal Assist Mode - Your bike will now sense you pedaling and how fast, activating one of the three levels of PAS (low, medium, high) you've selected.
- Traditional Bike Mode - With our front wheel motor your traditional bike it pedals as it normally would, not affecting your chains, gears or pedals like most eBikes.
The more you choose to pedal and the lower the level of assistance selected, the more range you can expect and you can always take a spare battery with you for longer rides.
Patent-Pending Energy Efficiency Algorithm.
The secret to UrbanX's small size is that it works smarter, not harder by using an algorithm to ensure 100% of motor output is utilized to power your ride. With the UrbanX eBike battery and motor working smarter, we can minimize size and increase range.
By using our patent-pending Sinus Algorithm Controlling System to convert electric energy that's stored in the battery to kinetic energy from the motion of your wheel, UrbanX is able to minimize energy loss, increase output and ultimately extend the riding range of your battery.
