About

Two is Better than One

 Transform your bike: Centinel Wheel is a dual motor bike wheel that transforms your bicycle into an electric bike. You can change your bicycle anytime you want by taking out the motors and the battery and ride it like a normal bike. Centinel Wheel is designed to give you that extra push when you need it and also to work as a back up motor in the case of one of your motors breaking down. 

Features

  • All-in-One Design: All the parts are inside the wheel, no need to worry about all the hassles involved with installing an electric bike conversion kit.
  • Intelligent Controller: Two motors with advanced algorithm to work as you ride. Our intelligent controller knows when you need extra power or when you are just cruising. 
  • Easy Recharge: Don't worry about charging your battery. You can charge easily by taking out the removable  whether you are at home or at work.
  • Easy Maintenance & Upgrade: Removable motors to help maintain or upgrade the motors to give you extra power.

Duomo™ - Dual Motor Technology

Hycore’s unique dual motor technology, Duomo™, harmonizes the core components by honing the efficiencies within the inherent characteristics of the core components: controller, motors, batteries, and gears.

We are debuting Centinel Wheel with our intelligent controller that works with bluetooth connection and various sensors so that the controller knows not only the status of the e-bike but the status of the environment around the e-bike to maximize efficiency without sacrificing maximum torque.

Technical Specs

We will update you often as we move on to manufacturing from this prototype. We are working to make Centinel Wheel lighter and longer lasting than the stated specifications.

Risks and challenges

Hycore started a little over 2 years ago and there have been numerous risks and challenges in both business aspects and technological aspects. We have overcome many problems to get this technology to life.

Upon completing a successful Kickstarter campaign, we are facing additional developments to reduce weight and increase battery capacity. This mainly has to do with the manufacturing engineering and we have sourced companies in the US, Korea and China working together to make this happen. We are expecting to finalize manufacturing engineering by June. After this work is done, we will begin production and shipment. We feel we are ready to take this task after years of preparing not only just the technological aspect but also the marketing aspect. We will make sure to communicate often and address issues that supporters might have.
