Riding to work on a bike is one of the more enjoyable things you can do on any given weekday. You get to save on gas, breathe the fresh air, and don’t have to worry about traffic. Now with the announcement of the UrbanX Bike Wheel, commuting on two wheels is going to get that much better.

This electric front wheel is simple enough to be installed in just 60 seconds, and can propel you at up to 20 miles an hour for rides as long as 30 miles. Coming in six different sizes and two different brake styles (v or disk brakes), the UrbanX team has the right wheel to match your bike – whatever size or type it is. The battery that powers the 350 watt motorized wheel is easily detachable and compact so you can charge the motor when it is most convenient for you. To help you keep track of your charge and riding habits – the wheel can communicate stats like your battery readout, distance and speed, as well as ride mapping via an integrated app. Don’t let the heat stop you from getting to work worry free this summer. The device is expected to start at $700. [Purchase]
