The team

Superpedestrian brings together a team of extraordinary people for one vision: transforming urban mobility around the world. We are focused on developing the new standard(s) in bike and tech integration and solving the challenges of managing and maintaining large numbers of motorized vehicles. We do this by working with ride-hailing and bike-sharing companies to create electric-bike fleets that provide optimal safety, reliability, and enjoyable riding experiences throughout the world.

Additionally, our consumer facing product the Copenhagen Wheel, is the first human-enhancing transportation technology available to the mass market. Almost any bike can now 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 transforming the daily commutes of thousands of consumers across the globe. Join us as we revolutionize personal transit for a sustainable future.
