Where form meets function

The FlyKly Smart Wheel is an electric pedal assist that fits onto most bicycles and gives you an effortless ride. The wheel works by turning the motor on once you start pedaling as it begins accelerating to your desired speed, and stopping when you do. It can reach speeds of 20 mph for a 30-mile range and weighs only 4 kg. By allowing you to arrive at your desired destination faster and without breaking a sweat, it means you no longer have to dress specifically for the ride. FlyKly also allows you to remotely lock your bike and track it in case it is stolen. A Kickstarter campaign is currently underway to help realize the project fully.
