In 2011 Niko Klansek introduced the first line of the FlyKly electric bicycles to the USA market. After the first experience with the electric bicycles he realized the many possibilities of how to innovate on the e-bike field. The time was ideal to finally actualize the idea he had for years on how to upgrade the ordinary bicycle with a motor and turn it into a pedal assist. Niko sketched the rough concept and started working with a team of engineers, designers, software developers and bicycle culture researchers and created the first working prototype in early 2013.With their new FlyKly Smart Wheel the process is simple. Just buy the appropriate size, remove your rear wheel and replace it with the FlyKly Smart Wheel. As you begin to pedal, the motor is activated and begins accelerating to your desired speed (the motor also stops when you stop pedalling). This allows you to ride your bike effortlessly; you’re travelling faster, saving you not only time - but energy too.
