Hot Wheels and Super73 Launch a Limited Edition Hot Wheels E-Bike

  • Hot Wheels and Super73 partner to create the Hot Wheels X Super73-RX, an e-bike with Hot Wheels style.
  • The electrically powered bicycle can travel 40 miles at 20 mph using only the electric motor.
  • The bike will retail for $5000 and come with a special Hot Wheels Ford Bronco diecast.

    Mattel’s die-cast superstar Hot Wheels is no stranger to strategic partnerships. There have been limited-edition Hot Wheels computers, Hot Wheels Power Wheels, and virtually every other kid-focused item at your local toy store. Now Hot Wheels is venturing into a partnership that should help the big kids and adults—for an e-bike. Hot Wheels is partnering with e-bike manufacturer Super73 to release a limited-edition Hot Wheels bike based on the company’s flagship Super73-RX.

    This bike will feature a 960 watt-hours battery, which translates to about 40 miles of riding at 20 mph. You can stretch that further by opting for a different drive mode that relies on some pedaling from the rider. Ultimately, you can also ride as many miles as you can pedal, whether there’s any juice in the battery or not—it is a bicycle after all.

    While this is mostly a standard Super73-RX, the Hot Wheels livery does add some extra style points to this electric bicycle. The aptly named Hot Wheels X Super73-RX is finished in black but sports orange and blue Hot Wheels graphics on the battery tank, and Hot Wheels embroidery on the seat.

    This e-bike is full of high-priced tech, and the price reflects that. This Hot Wheels edition Super73-RX will set you back $5000, and it’s also only available in the continental US, which means folks abroad, or even in Alaska or Hawaii, won’t be able to order one directly. This built-to-order bike will also need a 12-16 week lead time before it hits the shipping crate. That said, if you’re a diehard Hot Wheels collector, or are just interested in jumping on an e-bike, this could be the machine for you. Oh yeah, and helping to offset that price: Hot Wheels is also including a special Ford Bronco die-cast that matches your new bike.

    Do you think you’d ever spend $5,000 on an e-bike? Why or why not? Let us know in the comments below.

    zen

    Sometimes, taking our bike out for a ride brings us on an inward journey. Almost like a form of Zen meditation, the noise fades, our mind clears, and all we are focused on is the path before us. The longer and further we go, the more we learn about ourselves and the nature of our mind.

    xpedo cxr pedalbanner with Brian McCullough

    In these uncertain times, cycling has helped many reduce stress and anxiety, and even regain a sense of clarity. There’s much to be gained, so keep calm, and keep riding.

    zen

    This artwork is inspired by Japanese Zen gardens. Its fluid strokes are created with a bold rake brush to simulate the continuous lines or samon (砂紋) in the gravel, and represent the journey each rider takes.

    A New Milestone in Performance Cycling Wheels Exceptional Handling. Ultra Lightweight. King of the Mountain.

    princeton

    Princeton CarbonWorks announces their all new PEAK 4550, developed in conjunction with the top cyclists in the world; a lighter, stiffer, stronger, and more aerodynamic solution directly targeted at world tour and grand tour racing.

    Available in every configuration, (tubular, tubeless ready clincher, rim and disk brake) the PEAK 4550 set weighs as little as 1071g in tubular rim brake guise, with standard tubeless ready clincher versions weighing 1297g for rim brake and 1348g for disc brake.

    princeton

    Development priorities were to create an all-around race ready wheel with exceptional aerodynamic characteristics and the strength and stiffness to transfer high wattages to the ground. The performance characteristics of grand tour riding are perhaps the most difficult to synthesize in a single wheelset. Riders need a wheelset that is light and responsive for the climbs. On the descents, they need predictable and sharp handing. In the valleys, the wheelset needs to be aerodynamic and impervious to crosswinds. And above all of that, the wheels need to hold up to thousands of kilometers of full gas racing.

    princeton

    PCW’s standard non-drilled tire bed facilitates a stiffer outer rim and transfers some material away from the tire bed to other critical areas in the wheel, helping to keep wheel weight low while maintaining high stiffness values.

    princeton

    A limited Launch Edition will be available starting June 26th; standard black graphics and custom options and hub choices will become available later in 2021.

    Are Expensive Bicycle Wheels Worth the Money? Let’s Check the Physics

    In this video, you see a cyclist testing new aerodynamic wheels from Zipp. Swapping your wheels may seem like a small change, but can make a big difference. From his tests, the rider discovers:

    • With conventional wheels, he can ride 20 minutes at an average speed of 41.12 kph with an average power of 379 watts.
    • With the Zipp 808 NSW aero wheels he rides 51 minutes at an average speed of 41.13 kph and average power of 344 watts.

    Before looking at power and energy, I should go over two small details.

    First, how do you measure power? Cyclists can measure power by installing a small computer, called a power meter, that measures the input torque at the pedals or crankshaft and records the rotation angle at timed intervals. If you know the torque and angle, you can calculate the input energy. Dividing this energy by time gives you power.

    La te xi t 1

    Second, this isn’t a perfect test of aerodynamics. If you really want to examine the effect of the new wheels, you probably would have to put a bike with a dummy in a wind tunnel. When the reviewer takes his second ride, many things could have changed—wind, body position, amount of sweat on the body—and impacted performance. Let’s assume the only thing that changed was the wheels.

    Air Drag and Power

    What happens when you ride a bike? If you are moving at a constant speed, then the net force on the bike-human system must be zero. In a slightly simplified view, I can draw the following force diagram:

    Spring 2016 Sketches key

    The vertical forces (gravity pulling down and the ground pushing up) don’t really matter here. Just forget about them and pay attention to the horizontal forces. First, let’s look at the air drag. Air acts in complicated ways when an object passes through it. But who cares when we can make a simple model of air drag force? Here’s an expression for the magnitude of this force:

    La te xi t 1

    In this model, the air force is proportional to the square of the bike’s speed (v). For the other terms, we have:

    • ρ is the density of air (around 1.0 kg/m3).
    • A is the cross sectional area of the bike plus the rider (how much of the object interacts with the air).
    • Finally, C is the drag coefficient. This parameter depends upon the shape of the object. If you change the wheels, it is the value of C that should change.

    The second horizontal force is the frictional force. An interaction between the road and the tires propels the bike. I know what you’re thinking: Doesn’t the human propel the bike? In a sense, yes. But the reality is sort of complicated. The rider’s power goes through the pedals and chain to the wheel, which turns. But the force comes from the tire pushing against the road. So for our energy perspective on this problem let’s just say the human provides the friction force.

    Clearly the faster the biker
