Jyrobike : The Auto Balance Bicycle
For every parent, they look forward to the day their child/children learn to ride a bike with mixed emotions. That is because learning to ride a “Two-Wheeler” can cause many mixed emotions for both child and parent. Some children get so scared of falling that they spend several years with training wheels on their bikes. There really is no other way to make them feel safe unless you want to run next them whenever they are riding their bike. I do not recommend this if you want to have any sort of free time or get anything accomplished or have more than one child. That is why I am so happy to share with you the news that will change the course of learning to ride a “Two-Wheeler” for ever. It is called the Jyrobike. The Jyrobike is an Auto Balance Bicycle that keeps the rider upright and stable even when they wobble and tip.
How Jyrobike Works
Jyrobike designs and manufactures Auto Balance Bicycles with a unique Control Hub built into the front wheel. Inside the Control Hub is a motor driven gyroscope, which when turned on, keeps the rider balanced and upright while they are pedaling, even when they tip or wobble. The first Jyrobikes are aimed at 3-8 year olds and will be available in 12” and 16” wheel sizes.
For most observers Jyrobike has a magical, almost impossible quality, however the technology is actually based upon the basic and well-known scientific laws found in all gyroscopes or flywheels. When turned on, it acts like a gyroscope or gyro and provides a stabilizing force, working just as gyros do to keep helicopters stable in the air, boats stable at sea and spaceships stable in orbit.
But what if my child already has a bike?
A Control Hub can replace your existing 12” or 16” front wheel and transforms your existing bicycle into a Jyrobike – helping your child learn to ride without training wheels!
What is a Control Hub?
A Control Hub is a battery-powered, rechargeable, motor-driven invention that intelligently drives a spinning flywheel at high RPMs. When turned on it acts like a gyroscope or gyro and provides a stabilising force, working just as gyros do to keep helicopters stable in the air, boats stable at sea and spaceships stable in orbit.
Jyrobike 12” and 16” bicycles are high quality and made from light weight aluminium materials with a super-strong tri-tubing design. Built to last and we think.. not too bad to look at either.
- Light weight alloy materials
- Fat Boy tyres providing extra traction and cushioning
- Handlebar grips with safety ends to prevent little hands slipping off
- Grab and carry handle on the saddle
- Quick release, gives tool free adjustable saddle post
- Rounded bolt covers to help reduce scratches
- V-brakes on the front, drum brakes on the back wheel
