Want to make your nor­mal bike go a bit faster? Here are the best ways to turn your steed into a speed ma­chine

Geoor­bital

Its looks are a bit Mar­mite, but the Geoor­bital can give you e-power in just 60 sec­onds by swap­ping your front wheel with the Geoor­bital one. How­ever, with a 500W power rat­ing, it’s not yet le­gal in the UK.

Price $995 Web geoo.com

Oxy­drive F-se­ries

If you want a more tra­di­tional con­ver­sion, the Oxy­drive F-se­ries comes with a 468Wh bat­tery that at­taches to the frame’s down­tube, a 250W front-hub mo­tor and an LCD dis­play en­abling you to con­trol its six lev­els of as­sis­tance. All in, it weighs 6.9kg.

Price £699 Web oxy­drive.co.uk

Swytch

Although Swytch is still in the Kick­starter phase, it’s look­ing promis­ing, with a range of up to 50 miles and the abil­ity to con­vert any bike. Its weight of just 1.5kg for the hub mo­tor and 2.1kg for the bat­tery means you’ll hardly no­tice it when in­stalled.

Price $349 Web swytch­bike.com
