With CLIP every bike can become electric

This small portable motor can give an electric boost to any standard bike.

Bike commutes are a great and sustainable habit, but they come with two main issues: sweat and fatigue. Nobody wants to show up for a meeting at ten drenched in sweat after a long bike ride under the sun. E-bikes solve this problem quite efficiently, but they aren’t cheap. Enter the CLIP, a new portable electric that can be clipped to any bike to help the rider climbing a steeper street or riding a longer stretch with ease. The device is a simple metal arm with a motor-driven wheel at the front. The arm attaches to the bike’s front fork, while the motorized wheel helps the front-wheel spin with an electric boost. The project, already funded on Kickstarter, is still in a prototyping phase. The company expects to unveil the first version of the product in July.
