The team

Superpedestrian brings together a team of extraordinary people for one vision: transforming urban mobility. We are focused on developing single and double-occupancy vehicles for trips under 50 miles. We do this by specializing in developing human-enhancing technologies which enable the creation of small vehicles that are both nimble and a joy to ride.

Our first product, the Copenhagen Wheel, is the first human-enhancing transportation technology available to the mass market. Almost any bike can be equipped with the Copenhagen Wheel, which senses the rider’s motions and amplifies their pedaling power by up to 10 times using the drive system embedded within the sleek red hub. We have an exclusive license to this piece of MIT technology and together, our team is now bringing the Wheel to the masses. Join us as we revolutionize personal transit for a sustainable future.

Superpedestrian is an Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action Employer. We care about your skills and your character and we celebrate what makes us diverse. If we think there’s a good fit, we will get in touch. Please, no phone calls or recruiters.
