Flywheel Hybrid Bicycle Brings F1 Tech to the Bike Lane | Gas 2.0

The bike you see here has been rigged up with a 15 lb. automotive flywheel that’s mated to a CVT, which allows the rear wheel to transfer kinetic energy to the flywheel under “braking”, effectively slowing the bike down. Once the cyclist is ready to pick up speed again, the CVT is shifted the other way, and the spinning mass of the flywheel “boosts” the rider’s legs and provides forward motion – just like the flywheel KERS systems proposed by Williams F1 (which provides flywheel hybrid tech to Porsche) and Volvo.
