Revolutionary Spokeless Smart Cycle
The Cyclotron Bike, created by Cyclotron Cycles has a sleek, futuristic design with spokeless wheels. The developers state “Cyclotron is the future of cycling… we have created the world's most advanced and versatile Smart Bike packed with tons of innovative features and controlled by the powerful Cyclo-App.”
The Cyclotron Bike is available in three models, a manual 12-speed, a manual 18-Speed manual and the top-of-the-range 18-Speed E-Gear (electronic gearbox) model. The E-gear bike is a powered road bike that will do all gear shifting for you in under one-fifth of a second.
The Cyclotron Bike features two different riding styles. A streamlined, low-profile style for optimal speed and performance and a more relaxed and upright style. Just flip the bars and lower the seating height to change styles.
Made of space grade Carbon Fibre composite material, the manufacturer combines two layers of carbon fibre with a core structure that is ultra lightweight. To minimize air resistance, drag and turbulences, aerodynamic wing-shaped tube profiles have been used.
The frame comes in three different sizes to accommodate different heights of riders. Small: 4’11” to 5’4”; medium: 5’6” to 6’0” and large: + 6’2”
The Cyclotron Bike’s illuminated, hub-less wheels have no spokes. Using a gyroscopic effect, when you pedal and activate the electronic gearbox, the bike is propelled forward on a set of solid polymer tires that do not require any air and are estimated to last over 6,000 miles.
The secret behind the Cyclotron Bike aerodynamic and futuristic design is that everything from the drive-train, cabling, gears, brakes, and battery are integrated inside the Carbon Fibre frame, but are accessible for ease of maintenance.
All lights of the Cyclotron Bike are toggled by the Automatic Light Sensor, that switches them on/off according to the current daylight situation. These lights can last for 8 hours on battery power alone. The hubless wheels are illuminated from the interior. Red laser lines can optionally project outwards from the rear, onto the roadway behind you to create a “bike lane” that is clearly defined. The Battery pack is located inside the seat-post allowing for easy removal for additional charging with the optional Cyclo-Charger at any wall socket.
The Cyclo-App is compatible with both iOS and Android devices and can let you know when the battery is low (for the illumination features), and is useful with Bluetooth LE (Low Energy) BTLE Sensors to:
The designers have created storage containers (USMs) that are made to fit within the wheel where the spokes would normally sit in a traditional wheel. There is also a child seat system and a tandem mount feature with more ideas in development.
Purchasers can choose an existing design or create their own decal for their Cyclotron Bike.
Early backers of Cyclotron Bikes via Kickstarter have reserved their bikes for around £800. The cyclotron is now available for £1000 through to £2300 for the 18 speed e-gear model.
