Wheel allows you to control and customize your Copenhagen Wheel - the new device from Superpedestrian that transforms your bicycle into a smart electric hybrid. Named one of TIME Magazine’s 25 Best Inventions of 2014.
Superpedestrian is focused on urban mobility. Our mission is to help people move through cities more seamlessly.
The Copenhagen Wheel contains a motor, batteries, multiple sensors, wireless connectivity, and an embedded control system. The Wheel learns how you pedal and integrates seamlessly with your motion, multiplying your pedal power 3x—10x. It makes hills feel flat and distances shrink, so you can cycle just about anywhere.
The Wheel app works with the Copenhagen Wheel to give you:
All actuation of the Wheel happens automatically via the pedals through sensing and control algorithms. When you pedal harder, like when you're going uphill, the Wheel provides more assistance. Using the Wheel app, you can vary the level of powered assist.
TRENDS AND INSIGHTS
Get more from your Wheel through the Wheel app by tracking personal usage statistics including time, distance, calories burned, power, elevation climbed and more, all of which can be compared and shared with friends.*
YOUR KEY TO THE WHEEL
When you own a Wheel, the Wheel app gives you control of your Wheel, and allows you to give your friends and family access to your Wheel so they can share in the fun too.

I have always been active. But hit with Breast Cancer, Kidney Cancer and now cancer in my lungs - I simply couldn’t keep up with my friends. However, with the Copenhagen Wheel I can! I love being able to be a part of my group without the looks of sympathy. This wheel was put on the bike I already loved. Good to go! Simple as that. One improvement I would look for in the app is the down time without resetting a ride. What I mean is that if I take my iPhone to take a picture of something fabulous, the app stops the ride. I have to restart. I’d rather have the data for the one ride instead of smaller segments.
My Superpedestrian wheel
I’m 74 years old. I started riding bicycles quite often when I was 11. I have raced in national bike races during my riding days, but now ride only for exercise and the comfort of just riding. The problem is I live in a large hilly area. I thought my riding was over until I learned about this incredible wheel. I can now ride anywhere I want to go, as long as the ride stays within the limit time of the wheel, which for me is about 2.5 hours. I recommend that anyone in my position contact Superpedestrain. This is a fabulous wheel. You owe it to yourself to check it out.
Wheel Great, App Lacking
The wheel have been spectacular, but I think the app needs to be able to do a better job of being able to recover rides. On one ride I stopped off at a store, and when I came back it had forgotten it's previous ride data. Also, the wheel keeps forgetting its name. It's not a huge deal, just feels a bit buggy.
Would love to see the option to do more with the bike data, for example calculate things like what percentage of battery was used per ride, or ability to export the data to a spreadsheet. Also, an open API/integration with other applications would be amazing. That is the future of the ebike game, and I'd love SP to stay up front.
