7. Loop Wheel
Bike riders will know that riding on bumpy roads with potholes or going up a curb will cause some discomfort — Same goes for wheelchair owners and folding bike aficionados. But that may change with Loop wheels, an innovative, shock-absorbing wheel that has a looping suspension springs integrated within the wheel itself. The result: a smoother ride with less vibration, with less road noise.
6. Omni Crawler
At Innovation Japan 2011, a research group from Osaka University presented Omni-Crawler, a crawler that can be driven in all directions. The group also presented the Omni-Ball, a ball-shaped, omni-directional wheel the principals of which are implemented in the crawler.
5. Liddiard Wheels
Canadian inventor William Liddiard has designed revolutionary new omni-directional wheels that allow a car to move in all directions and even turn on the spot. They are not commercially available yet, but it probably won’t be long before they are.
While omni-directional wheels have been around for a while, such as the Mecanum wheel, Liddiard says these are the first that don’t require the body of an auto or forklift to be built around them, but rather can be bolted on to a vehicle.
4. Honda U
The Honda U3-X uses Honda’s proprietary balance control technology and the world’s first omni-directional driving wheel system (Honda Omni Traction Drive System),
which makes possible the same freedom to move forward, backward, laterally and diagonally that people enjoy when walking.
3. Geo-Orbital Wheel
The only part that is attached separately from the wheel is a simple thumb activated throttle, which is easily clipped onto your handlebar.
The Panasonic 36V removable Lithium-Ion battery (with a built in USB outlet for charging your electronics) provides a pedal assisted range of up to 50 miles per-battery (up to a 30 mile range for the 26 inch wheel). With little to no pedaling you will go up to 20 miles on a single battery (up to 12 miles for the 26 inch wheel). The more you choose to pedal the more range you can expect, and you can always take a spare battery with you for longer rides.
2. Mecanum Wheels
The Mecanum wheel is a design for a wheel which can move a vehicle in any direction. It is sometimes called the Ilon wheel after its Swedish inventor, Bengt Ilon, who came up with the idea in 1973 when he was an engineer with the Swedish company Mecanum AB.
It is a conventional wheel with a series of rollers attached to its circumference. These rollers typically each have an axis of rotation at 45° to the plane of the wheel and at 45° to a line through the centre of the roller parallel to the axis of rotation of the wheel.
1. Shark Wheel
The small contact patch and low friction of the Shark Wheel allows slides to initiate easily. Also, the Shark Wheel has multiple edges grabbing instead of a traditional wheel’s one edge for added control.
The Shark Wheel has about 30% less friction than traditional wheels and get up to speed very quickly. The Shark Wheel shape enables you to maintain grip with its wide footprint.
Traditional wheels have one center point, while the Shark Wheel has multiple center points, allowing the Shark Wheel to take longer to wear off center. The Shark Wheel wears very evenly over time
Which Wheel design was your favorite? Too bad they haven’t figure out a way to combine the loop wheel with the GeoOrbital wheel?? Did you see the Shark Wheel. If I knew how to skate board I would definitely buy some of those! Make sure to like and Subscribe! Make sure you also hit that bell so you can stay up to date with us.
