dbRevO wheel converts regular bikes to electric
produced by taiwanese bike manufacturers DK city, the ‘db revO‘ wheel converts an ordinary bicycle to an electric bike simply by replacing the front wheel. the device integrates motor, battery, and controller into a wheel produced in a variety of colours. a small wireless console mountable on the handlebars controls the power and offers information about the ride.
produced in 20-inch and 26-inch models, ‘db revO’ fits a range of bicycles, featuring a 24V lithium battery and DC motor. current colour options planned for production include white, red, magenta, orange, yellow, green, blue, and gray.
‘db revO’ was on exhibition at the EICMA bike and motorcycle show 2011, and is now among the shortlisted entries in the TAIPEI CYCLE d&i awards, organized as part of the prestigious iF design awards and part of the TAIPEI CYCLE bicycle show on now in taipei. keep posted to designboom for news about the winners of the award, to be officially announced later this week!
