How it WOrks
The Patent Pending GeoOrbital wheel is an evolution of the orbital wheel (the wheels on the TRON Motorcycles). The GeoOrbital wheel replaces a standard bicycle front wheel to turn your bike into a powerful electric bike in under 60 seconds.
Everything needed to add electric power to your bike is included in the wheel.
60 Second Installation
The Instlation takes under 60 seconds and only part that is attached separately from the wheel is a simple thumb activated throttle, which is easily clipped onto your handlebar.
The GeoOrbital wheel comes with a flat-proof tire so you never have to worry about getting a flat or even checking tire pressure.
By using a quality conventional tire and then filling it with a special hi-density foam the tire acts and weighs the same as a traditional bike tire, but you will never get a flat. Never!
COMPATIBILITY: 26 Inch
MOTOR: 500 Watt (750 Watt Peak)
RECHARGE TIME: up to 3 hours
RANGE WITHOUT PEDALING: up to 12 Miles*
WEIGHT: 17 Pounds
COMPATIBILITY: 28 Inch, 29 Inch, 700C
MOTOR: 500 Watt (750 Watt Peak)
RECHARGE TIME: up to 4 hours

*The range is per battery pack. As with all ebike the range varies greatly with rider weight, speed and terrain.
How to Measure Fit
*Please do not physically measure the diameter of your wheel. The resulting measurement will not correspond to your correct wheel size.
To determine your wheel size look for the number immediately before the "X"*
If that number is 26 then your wheel size is 26inch If that number is 28, 29, or 700 - then your wheel size is 700C
An Orbital wheel is a wheel with no center – it “orbits” around an empty area, rather than spinning as a result of being connected to a “hub.” For example have you seen the movie TRON? The wheels on those motorcycles are examples of Orbital Wheels (or Hubless wheels and Centerless wheels). The GeoOrbital wheel is an evolution of the Orbital wheel platform, where instead of orbiting around an empty space, the center of the wheel contains components that make the wheel function as an “all-in-one” vehicle propulsion system. We call this central mass a “Geo.”
There are several reasons that we chose to make the GeoOrbital a front wheel application.
Ease of Installation – it takes under 1 minute and no tools to install. Ease of Replacement – when you choose to put your spoked wheel back on it takes seconds to make the switch. Compatibility - it works with a much greater range of bikes than a rear wheel replacement, supporting any amount of bike speeds, transmission components, “in-hub” brakes, fork sizes and bike chain technologies. All Wheel Drive – because the GeoOrbital wheel doesn’t interfere with your bike’s chain or rear wheel, you can get all-wheel-drive by using the throttle while pedaling.
All current models support our Universal Brake adapter (for disc-brake bikes).
Not really. Since the weight of the GeoOrbital wheel isn’t spinning it has the same effect as a saddle bag. We also engineered the weight to be low and centralized along the fork so that the ride feels smooth and natural.
Yes, absolutely. The GeoOrbital wheel can be used as an assist while going up hills, when you get tired, or as a replacement for pedaling altogether. It’s completely up to you how and when you use it. Be sure to view our Riding Modes Guide in the Getting Started Section to learn more about Assist and Regenerative Braking Modes.
If the battery dies will I be stranded?
Absolutely not. You can pedal like you normally would on a bicycle. To compensate for the additional l weight and resistance, you should pedal in a lower gear than usual.
Since the battery is easily removable and replaceable we offer additional battery packs to extend the range.
We specifically designed the GeoOrbital wheel to be secured using standard bike locks. The battery locks to the wheel with the same key that turns the wheel on. If you are especially concerned about security you can remove your wheel in under 30 seconds and take it with you.
This is a big part of the logic behind the GeoOrbital wheel. If you want to pedal for fun or exercise you can simply remove the GeoOrbital wheel and swap your spoked wheel back on. In a few seconds you’ll be back to your 100% manual bicycle. You can have your favorite bike set up just the way you like it. When you want it to be electric, it is, when you don’t, its not.
We designed the GeoOrbital wheel to be fast and easy to install. It takes a typical brand new user less than 1 minute and no tools to install for the first time. After the first few times replacing the wheel takes about 30 seconds.
If you have an adult-size bike without disc brakes (a disc brake adapter is coming soon) – then YES! We have successfully tested the GeoOrbital Wheel on hundreds of different 26 inch, 28 inch, 29 inch and 700c bicycles found in both specialty and big box stores. We have tested the GeoOrbital wheel on bikes ranging in price from $50 to over $10,000 – from bikes made in the 1800s to those that just came out. Road bikes, hybrid bikes, mountain bikes, trikes, recumbent’s, folding bikes and kick-bikes and even mini penny farthings work great with the GeoOrbital wheel.
Sure. If you are looking for exercise you can combine pedaling and motor power. We have often found that people pedal out of habit even when operating in all electric mode. We call this added benefit “Accidental Exercise.” We have also found that people will ride to work under mostly electric power (to avoid sweating) and then peddle vigorously going home – for exercise.
All GeoOrbital Wheels have regenerative capability built in by default. Because of this feature there is a resistance when pedaling alone. Be sure to view the Riding Modes Guide in our Getting Started section.
Yes, our electric wheels have regenerative braking built in standard, whenever you are moving but not using the battery.
GeoOrbital has plans to support local Brick and Mortar Bike Shops and will start setting up Authorized GeoOrbital dealers later in 2017. If you would like more information, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be sure to send us your company name, contact, address, telephone number, and website information and we will respond ASAP.
YES, but please check your local transportation laws before ordering. eBike laws differ greatly from country to country and even from city to city. This GeoOrbital wheel is a U.S.A. domestic model.
Regular maintenance is not required. This is the beauty of brush-less electric motors, sealed bearings, and no-flat tires! We've got wheels with 1,000+ miles on them and the most we've done is wipe them down now and then to keep them looking pretty.
The foam tire is one of our favorite features of the GeoOrbital wheel! They have been tested to last 5,000 to 10,000 miles depending on use. If it ever does wear-out or if you find a way to destroy it, the rim can be reused and a new tire put on. We plan to offer replacement tires through our website in the future.
Although they might look it from the outside these are not the rubber tires from days past. Our flat-proof solid-core tires are made from a quality rubber tread on the outside and filled with a hi-density foam. This makes make them the best on the market for quality, wear and tear, and performance.
With our tires, you never have to worry about a flats, or about sacrifice any performance or weight.
All the components including the electronics are water resistant and we've tested the GeoOrbital wheel heavily in rain/snow, as well as dirt, grass and gravel. Because of the front wheel design, you can also get all-wheel drive if you pedal along with the motor, giving you increased traction on slippery roads.
