Cycling is a great hobby and is not limited to a specific age group. While many prefer to use a traditional bicycle, the new generation of cyclists are using electric bicycles or e-bikes. Although the purpose of both the bikes is the same, the e-bike offers various safety features that are not present in the traditional bike. However, an e-bike costs many times more than a regular bike. If you are someone who wants to convert your traditional bike into an e-bike without spending a lot of money, you can use the PikaBoost conversion kit.
The PikaBoost conversion kit is designed by American manufacturer Livall and can turn your bike into an e-bike in minutes. Installation of the kit is very easy and users just need to fix it on the seat post of their bike. It is compatible with any bicycle frame as well as tire. The kit rests on the rear wheel of the bicycle and can be used for assistance when needed.
The set consists of a removable battery with a capacity of 234 Wh and can be fully charged in 3 hours. A full charge offers a range of 30 km. PikaBoost consists of 18 cells of 18650 battery (3.5 Ah per cell) and has a weight of only 3 kg.
The kit’s regenerative system is activated when the bike brakes or descends. The kit can also charge your daily use gadgets like smartphones or other gadgets as it has a USB socket in it. The kit locks automatically if the rider’s mobile phone is not nearby. In case you’re wondering about its durability, the PikaBoost conversion kit gets IP66 protection. This means it is resistant to sand, dust and water.
In terms of driving modes, three modes are offered in the kit. Includes hold, flip and sport modes. The PikaBoost Kit will be launched in November 2022 via a Kickstarter campaign. Pricing starts at $299 and includes a limited-time discount.
