Tailwind for your bike

ONwheel bike engine

The lightweight e-bike alternative supports when needed

With the ONwheel you will experience your bike completely new. With only approx. 900 g motor weight and up to 600 W power. The reasonably priced friction roller drive for electrical retrofitting of standard bicycles supports you with additional power at the push of a button. Its low total weight makes your bike a light and sustainable e-bike alternative. Therefore, with the ONwheel you can master longer distances and occasional climbs effortlessly. Even when the engine is switched off, you will feel neither its weight nor any driving resistance.

Friction drive for bikes

Easy to mount – simple to operate

The friction roller drive, which directly affects the rear wheel, is Plug & Play capable: Before the first ride, the ONwheel Kit must be mounted once on the bike. The assembly steps can be easily completed in about 20 minutes. Afterwards, the motor can be removed from the bike at any time with one simple movement. So before each ride you decide for yourself whether you want to go on tour with or without the motor. During the ride you simply set the desired assistance at the push of a button. Furthermore, the ONwheel App offers additional ease of use.

The ONwheel is designed as a pedelec system for retrofitting a bicycle.

Power at the touch of a button

The ONwheel is designed as a pedelec system and thus complies with the legal requirements in the EU. But while many other systems can only be moved with a lot of muscle power without a motor switched on, with the ONwheel Kit you are always light-footed on the road. At the push of a button, the bike motor delivers the desired power and transmits this via the friction roller to the rear wheel. The power level can be adjusted directly on the handlebars using the Power Buttons. If the motor is inactive, the friction roller flips away and releases the rear wheel. Thanks to the low total weight, you retain 100% pure riding feeling even without electric assistance.

Fast assembly

The ONwheel Kit can be fitted to most standard bikes in an average of 20 minutes. If the bike has a bike stand plate, you can easily install the retrofit motor even in no time at all.

Free APP

With the ONwheel App, the system information of the ONwheel Kit can be monitored and, among other things, force and speed of the power stages can be individualized.

Leightweight and compact

With 930 g the ONwheel motor is a real lightweight. Nevertheless, the bike motor delivers a remarkable performance on the road. At the same time it is hardly noticeable under the bottom bracket due to its compact design. The total weight of all ONwheel components is only 3.2 kg, which is an advantage both when riding and when carrying over steps.

Suitable for all road conditions

Over rough and smooth or on asphalt: the ONwheel is suitable for all road conditions. In rain, the retrofit engine provides support just as reliably as on gravel roads. Due to the very grippy roller covering, slip is very low even in damp leaves or mud.

Setting the power

The ONwheel is delivered with a power of 250 watts and a speed of 25 kilometres per hour. Therefore it may be operated in accordance with the rules of the road traffic regulations in all European countries. However, in some countries a higher power/maximum speed is permitted. Therefore, these can be unlocked up to 600 W / 45 km/h via the ONwheel App. In Austria, for example, 600 W at 25 km/h are permitted.
