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.

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.*

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.

Super product, bad app!


This is an excellent product, expensive, but worth it. It is always a pleasure to see good stuff coming out of MIT. The best feature is that it only "assists" in paddling and never takes over. However, they dropped the ball on the app! It looks like MIT just lost its interest in developing equally impressive app. Crashes may times, some times it can't find the wheel, doesnt correctly calculates distance and time (like 10 miles in 3 min). This morning the app would simply not start, so deleted the app and reinstalled, then it start working. By the way, there is hardly much difference between the Standard and Turbo modes, except Turbo consumes more energy.

App needs some improvement

Rider in Sillicon Valley

The wheel itself is awesome, but the app needs improvement. Connection to wheel works flawlessly, power mode change, etc. The issue is the ride tracker. Rides need the app to closed and relaunched before being listed, and they are not listed always. Tracking works random, sometimes just a straight line for over 10 miles. When you reset your password, all previous ride history is gone, start at zero again!

Bad app


The wheel is great, but the app has issues and it makes riding less fun. It’s very slow to load rides; I usually need to close the app and reopen it to see the latest ride. My most recent ride also failed to track the last ten minutes of riding.

PLEASE spend more time and effort improving the app so the overall riding experience is better!
