That is until Michael Burtov decided to reinvent the wheel (quite literally).While watching the movie Tron, Burtov was inspired to create a motorized wheel that didn’t require a pedal to make it move.

The result was the GeoOrbital wheel, an electric, environmentally friendly product that has now been installed in thousands of bikes all over the world.
