Cyclopic is a start-up innovation company that is developing an electric drive system that incorporates drive, steering, suspension and braking which operates the centreless wheel. Cyclopic have been awarded an Innovate UK SMART Grant to produce an urban electric vehicle which will have unique benefits: – height adjustment, parallel parking, improved aerodynamics. The EV – as no engine space required, will have more interior space and a revolutionary design.
The start-up trailblazer has its roots in developing the world’s first spokeless folding bike “The E-Cyclopic Bike.” Suitable for both the commuter and leisure market. The bike folds into small spaces – under a desk or in a boot. The bike has a sealed unit meaning no chain, solid tyres and no grease. The bike uses the electric drive-system that operates the centreless wheel. The company recognised the scope for other applications including drones, wheelchairs, caravans using this technology and has full grants on UK Patents for their technology and International filings in Europe China, Canada and the USA. Cyclopic are looking to disrupt the current mobility sector and strive to be leaders in electrification innovation.
