FlyKly Smart Wheel, A Bicycle Pedal Assist System in a Bike Wheel

The FlyKly Smart Wheel is a pedal assist system that is integrated into a bike wheel and can be fitted to most bicycles. The system reduces the effort required to propel the bicycle by providing electrical assist up to a top speed of 20 MPH and a maximum range of 30 miles. Everything, from the batteries to a GPS receiver is contained in a circular housing around the wheel hub. The system is controlled by a companion app that allows the rider to set an assist speed, monitor the battery level, and even track the wheel if it is stolen. The wheel is being designed and built by FlyKly in New York City. They’re raising funds for the project on Kickstarter.
