ABOUT SHARK WHEEL
SHARK WHEEL – BASED ON NATURE’S MOTIONS
The Shark Wheel actually outperforms the circular wheel in nearly every category. Scientifically proven in years of University testing, lab testing and real-world testing. Significant advantages: friction in motion, longevity, rebound, abrasion resistance, and off-road performance. Multiple Fortune 500 companies use the Shark Wheel in other industries for a reason. The wheel mirrors Nature. Everything in Nature alternates. The way fish and sharks swim, the way radio waves move, the way planets move around the Sun and even how humans walk with an alternating gait..
WHY ARE SHARK WHEELS BETTER?
There are many more advantages, but those are a few that have been scientifically proven by San Diego State University, Mechanical Engineering Department in 2 years of tests, as well as lab testing and other real world tests. There is a reason Fortune 500 companies, Samsonite, Harley Davidson, NBA, NFL, PGA Tour, MLB, NHL, Olympics and the US Military use products with Shark Wheels.
In this video, Sharkwheel inventor David Patrick discusses how he came up with the idea to combine a circle and a square. How can a design that is based on a cube roll perfectly and outperform regular wheels? Watch and learn. Or, even better, order and see for yourself;)
SUCCESS IN THE SKATEBOARD INDUSTRY
There is a reason Shark Wheels have thousands of 5-star verified purchase reviews on Amazon. The wheels have been scientifically proven to outperform the traditional wheel in nearly every category. Scientifically proven by San Diego State University, Mechanical Engineering Department, lab testing and real-world testing.
CHIEF TECHNOLOGY OFFICER
Inventor of the Shark Wheel and the 4 Sphere turbine, David is on his third startup company. David previously was the founder of Proventedge Technologies, a California software company focused on the mortgage banking industry. Prior to creating his software company David was the founder of California Capital, a mortgage banking firm. David currently serves as the Chief Technology Officer at Shark Wheel. He is a one-of-a-kind inventor and discovered a fundamental shape inherent in Nature’s motions. David believes in the phrase ‘innovate, never imitate’ and he is constantly in development on various wheel applications and improving the existing design for new generations of release. Shark Wheel is David’s third startup company. His first company, Pacific Western Financial did loans in the state of California. Eventually Pacific Western became California Capital, funding tens of millions of dollars in mortgage backed loans all across the United States. During this time, David’s internal systems led his company to be successful and he was a leader in his industry, revolutionizing many key processes using technology instead of manual systems. Once the company was sold in 1997 David took the technology he developed and founded the Provantedge Software company. The software was designed for the entire mortgage banking industry and was a true end to end solution. Provantedge processed all types of loans from FHA, VA, Conventional and all others for all 50 states. The software that he designed along with his partner was light years ahead of his competitors and was the first of its kind to introduce many new technologies. He sold his advanced software to companies including Boeing Employees Credit Union, Ford Employees Credit union and many other financial institutions. Provantedge was also the first company to successfully submit loans to Freddie Mac when the industry was in its infancy. David was instrumental in inventing an all in one system that revolutionized the industry by being the first to use XML standards. His software is still in use today. David was the founder at Provantedge along with his partner David Hall and worked on this project and company from 1997-2003. David also served as inventor and CTO at 4sphere, a novel wind and water turbine company that was picked up by the Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator as its resident portfolio company for turbines in 2012. David attended Orange Coast College with an engineering focus but left to pursue a career as an entrepreneur.

PROJECTS IN DEVELOPMENT
Shark Wheel has won 3 government grants through the National Science Foundation for its irrigation wheel (agriculture). These 3.5 foot tall wheels have shown incredible results. The most recent test was against the industry leading pneumatic wheel (pneumatics make up over 80% of the industry because they mitigate rutting). The pneumatic dug a 14″ rut compared to a Shark Wheel’s 1″ rut on the same tower/same field/same conditions/etc. Although the virtually elimination of rutting is the #1 advantage, here are some others:
1. Least amount of rutting in the industry (the out of phase wheels push soil toward center unlike a circular wheel – once you see the new design it becomes even more apparent)
2. No flat (Shark Wheels do not have air and cannot go flat)
3. Shark Wheel’s design allows crops to grow in the wheel tracks. No other wheel does this to our knowledge. Of course the crop output is significantly diminished in the wheel track, but there is crop nonetheless
4. Non-pneumatic wheels put too much stress on the drivetrain. Shark Wheels used hundreds of hours of computer simulations to push nearly all of the stress to the outer circumference of the wheel nullying premature drivetrain failure
5. Modular design allows farmers to fix a broken ‘lug’ (the modular tire portion) in only 60 seconds with only 2 bolts to pull out and put back in
6. Pricing is in line with industry standard – far less expensive than the NFTrax, which is most likely the best non-pneumatic solution pre-Shark Wheels.
7. The new wheel design is compliant. This means the wheel actually flexes (unlike the wheel in this video) and can absorb blows from rocks and other debris. The compliant design also removes vibration and other stresses.
8. The width of the Shark Wheel does not leave a berm like pneumatics that push soil away from the center. In measuring the total width of the Shark Wheel vs. a pneumatic, they are exactly the same
In short, the Shark Wheel in its newest form is a work of art and engineering. Everything was thought of with the final design that commercializes in Q4 2021.
