Making a “normal” bicycle into an e-bike in seconds is possible with Clip. Thanks to equipment that weighs about 3 kg and a “mini motor” with 450 watts, your bicycle can move faster without reaching the end of the trip so tired. For now the solution is only available in the United States.
Reaching a maximum speed of 24 km per hour, the equipment is placed on the front wheel of the traditional bicycle, with the batteries being available on the side “arms” of the Clip. A controller connected to the handlebar, on the other hand, incorporates a button which, when “pressed”, accelerates the bicycle’s speed.
To Fast Company, Somnath Ray explains the purpose of the equipment. “We wanted to have a solution that people could attach to the bicycle very easily and, basically, remove it when they get to work”, guarantees the product designer. The truth is that you can load the equipment at work and reconnect it to the bicycle to return home, with a charging time of 40 minutes. The Clip has a maximum range of 24 km.
The solution is compatible with all urban, road and hybrid bikes with a 26 to 28 inch front tire.
Clip is available for pre-order in the United States only and costs $ 399.
