About this project
Smart Ped is your perfect urban getaway. This beautifully practical kick assist e-bike is the smartest move around the city whether you’re on your way to work traveling distances or combining other means of public transport. Or maybe just cruising around and enjoying the view.
Smart Peds easily foldable design makes it the most wanted piece of transportation tech in any city - it folds in a moment and accompanies you anywhere you go.
This ultimate urban ride is as simple as it is fun. One single kick and the new kick-assist system automatically turns on the electric motors and propels you further to extend your ride.
The all-in-one electric motor, battery and electronics come from the Smart Wheel concept, all fitted in the rear wheel. The aluminum housing, consisting of an electro motor, battery set, electronics and forward thinking sensors, is meticulously assembled and crafted into a wonderful piece of tech.
And then there is the security feature - you can lock your Smart Ped with a touch on the app. This innovative technology will also support the only legal e-kick-bike on the market.
It all started in NYC 100 years ago with AutoPed - a motor propelled bike for delivering post or occasional getaways.
And the legend continues today with Smart Ped in a new, foldable and light design for the comfortable ride - allowing you to enter elevators, metro, trains or buses. Smart Ped fits both feet and its 16’’ wheels make the ride outstandingly stable while minimal and clean design glows as it glides through city streets.
It’s an open source design that lets you upgrade and tweak your Smart Ped with new features and goodies.
We have the answer. Connect your Smart Ped with the BitRide App to track how you ride and get suggestions for alternative routes to make your commute safer, easier and more fun. It creates tailor made reports on how much money, time and carbon footprint points can be saved with switching to a different mobility pattern. Use it to control your Smart Ped or connect with your friends and share your rides and stats. Download BitRide App to stay tuned during the campaign and know the progresses of your Smart Ped production and delivery. It’s compatible with iOS & Android and available now. Pebble application coming shortly.
Made in Italy doesn’t only mean great design. Smart Ped is produced in Milan and follows up on the already tested Smart Wheel concept. There are hundreds of Smart Wheels riding city streets all around the world and we’ve tested it to an extent that ensures quality and effectiveness. Smart Ped is already fully developed, tested and ready for production. You will be the first to get and enjoy this beautiful piece of tech on two wheels.
Smart Ped is all set and ready for production. The only thing missing is your support. We set out on this mission together to make cities more bike friendly. Make a smart move and help us kickstart our new journey with Smart Ped.

Risks and challenges
FlyKly Smart Ped is nearly complete. All products shown on this page and in the videos were built on our production line. We’re currently ramping up at our factory and are ready to meet the estimated delivery times.
We’ve done our very best to forecast demand and create a solid production plan. We’ve learned a lot from the past two years, but sometimes forecasts don’t always hit the mark. Should we miss projections, we’ll let you know why and make it right as quickly as possible.
Supply Chain Risk
We’ve built a very capable team who have worked for the past 2 years on all our products. However, component delays and unexpected shortages can occur. If this happens, we’ll be sure to keep you informed and work to quickly solve the problem.
Terms and Conditions
The products are assembled and shipped from Milan, Italy. Any custom duties or other associated taxes and charges are the responsibility of the backers.
