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.

Ratings and Reviews
27 miles in the Willamette Valley
Every time I stop it gives me a new ride. When I stop to eat a nutrition bar the connection to the app on my iPhone X is lost. The only way to resume is to turn off the wheel and start a new ride. I wish there was a way to increase the time allowed to stop. The same has happened at long traffic signals. I still give the wheel 5 stars, because I can keep up with my friends, and I am not exhausted at the end of the ride. Let’s go dancing!
The awesomeness that is the Copenhagen Wheel
To date I’ve put several hundred miles on the wheel and couldn’t be more satisfied. I had originally planned to use the wheel only periodically, but it’s ease of operation and the possibility of at least delaying potential knee surgery has altered those plans.
Thank you, Superpedestrian. Your Copenhagen Wheel is awesome.
I finally got my Copenhagen wheel after a 3 year wait from when I first signed up with Kickstart as the project needed funding. The wait was worth it. The wheel immediately connected with My Wheel and even told me I needed to turn my bike right side up to get started. The built in instructions were helpful and in no time I was cruising along. I love the features that lets you know what the battery level is, when you are regenerating and the basic information saved on each trip. I also appreciate the several ways you can communicate with the Superpedestrian support group. I have contacted them from time to time for updates and questions. I have always gotten quick & informative responses with names of staff if I had any follow up questions. I am a cancer survivor who has lost much of my riding stamina and have not passed any other bicycle types in a long time. I really look forward to saying "Passing on your left".
