Solar Electric Bike Wheel Feb 13, 2017

Forbes reports that an intriguing solar e-wheel kit is to be premiered at the forthcoming Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Apparently it will be exhibited by French firm Rool’in, but unfortunately details are brief. 

Rool’in’s website only currently details its conventional kits which come in three wheel sizes, 20″, 26″ and 28″.  The website boasts 5 minute fitting, Samsung batteries and a range of bewteen 30km and 50km depending on the wheel size used.

The kit is compliant with EU bike laws, coming with a pedelec sensor (the sensor can be bought as a separate kit to fit to a second bike, so the wheel can be swapped over quickly and easily). Prices are from €615. Here’s a video with a look at the Rool’in:



The idea is certainly not new; EBR reported on a Dutch prototype earlier in the year, though Rool’in appear to be one of the first companies to commercialise the idea.
