We all agree cycling is a very good exercise. However, cycling more than half hour to work might not be favored by many office workers due to the side effect of cycling – sweeting. Not all the office has the shower facility so you can get refresh and change after a good amount of exercise.
E-bikes with a battery-powered “assist” are great for giving you a boost, but they’re often expensive compared with normal bike. And it is fairly hard to ride on these E-bike due to their heavier design. Hence, if you have a E-bike, in the most cases, you will have to reply on its battery and lose the chance to exercise yourself unless you buy yourself another bike for exercising. That’s why a Brooklyn-based startup decided to design CLIP, a portable and detachable e-motor that turns any bike into an electric one.
With the help of this electric bike conversion kit, your bike now can be a exercise bike during the weekend and a easy, quick transport during the workday. As its name suggested, it is a clip, compatible with all city, road, and hybrid bikes with a 26″ to 28″ front tire. With a black frame and brushed aluminum side panels, it will give your bike a modern and quite unique looking.
As light as a laptop, it fits in your backpack, and you can simply attach and detach from your bike as needed. It incorporates a 450W motor powered by a 36V, 144Wh battery, allowing commuters to reach a maximum of 24kmh / 15mph within a 10-15 mile range. It can be fully recharged in just 40 minutes, so you’ll always be ready to go.
