The Beast / Electric Mountain Bicycle

The Beast
The Beast

This is an electric mountain bicycle that can generate electricity itself. There are ring-shape Piezoelectric materials inside the rims, so that when the user is riding the bicycle, the ground may produce pressure to the rims of both the front and back wheel rims. As a result, the wheel rims would squeeze the Piezoelectric materials, generate electricity for the battery, reduce power consumption, and achieve energy conservation. The user can charge the battery by pedaling even when the battery is depleted
There is a gravity sensor in the Derailleur of the bicycle. It can detect the slope of the ground to automatically change the gear ratio
