Wheel Builder Specialist / Bicycle Mechanic

The team

Superpedestrian brings together a team of extraordinary people for one vision: transforming urban mobility. Our first move? Pedal power. We have an exclusive license to MIT’s Copenhagen Wheel, thousands of pre-order sales and backing from tier-one venture capital investors. Together, our team is now bringing the Wheel to the masses.

The Copenhagen Wheel is an electronic assist robot that responds seamlessly to how you ride. It makes biking a breeze.
