Livall company, based in Shenzhen city in China, has created a smart device known as PikaBoost. This device effortlessly transforms regular bicycles into electric bicycles within a mere 30 seconds, requiring only straightforward operations.
The components of the PikaBoost device consist of a battery compartment, sensors, a control chip, and a friction wheel.
When connecting the PikaBoost device to a standard bicycle, the friction wheel will transfer kinetic energy to the rear wheel of the bike. This energy transmission is intended to provide assistance to the user while they are pedaling.
The PikaBoost has been specifically designed to be small and lightweight, making it effortless to carry in a backpack. It is compatible with various types of bicycles. With the PikaBoost device, transforming a regular bike into an electric bike is a breeze, taking just 30 seconds to install.
According to a Livall Company representative, PikaBoost offers the convenience of having a traditional bicycle for exercise purposes and the flexibility of an electric bicycle when required.
The PikaBoost device is equipped with sensors that can cleverly adjust to different terrains and the intensity of the rider’s pedaling. It is capable of monitoring the bike’s condition in real-time and making necessary adjustments to the power output accordingly, ensuring a responsive performance on uphill slopes and various terrains.
PikaBoost utilizes intelligent features to instantly detect collisions in real-time and promptly immobilizes the rear wheels of the vehicle. This rapid action effectively reduces the speed, ensuring the utmost safety of the users.
PikaBoost is not just designed for cycling; it also incorporates a convenient USB port that allows users to charge other electronic devices. This device operates using a rechargeable lithium battery, which can easily be replaced once it reaches the end of its lifespan.
The PikaBoost device is currently available for purchase on the Kickstarter crowdfunding platform at a price of $299 per unit.
