All the Power with Minimal Modifications

Designed using Ansys Motor-CAD simulation software obtained as part of the Ansys Startup Program, Bimotal created a lightweight device that can be installed in seconds using a quick-connect cam lever on the brake rotor of the back wheel of most current bikes. Toby Ricco, Founder and CEO of Bimotal, explains where the idea came from and how he went from simulating electric vehicles to developing electric bikes.
