Founded by Assaf Biderman, inventor of the Copenhagen Wheel, and Carlo Ratti, Superpedestrian aims to commercialise patented wheel technology which transforms standard bicycles into hybrid e-bikes.
Spark Capital co-founder and general partner Santo Politi added, ‘Biderman and his team have taken the world’s most common mode of transport – the bicycle – and completely transformed it. The Copenhagen Wheel promises to not only change the way we’re able to move around in urban areas, but provides a new connecting network between cyclists, their bikes, and the city through personalized apps and real time connectivity.”
The new bicycle is expected to be introduced in November.
