Why are the wheels shaped like that?

David M. Patrick’s scientific discovery has led to shapes that have never been realized before. The shape is derived from shapes present in the natural world. The sine wave shape is seen in how sharks swim, snakes slither and even how humans walk with an alternating gait.

That is why our wheel follows the path of a shark’s jaw. When we realized the shape allows for a very wide wheel with low friction, we knew we were onto something. The wheel has all the benefits of a thin-profile wheel and a wide-profile wheel in one shape. Low friction and grip no longer have to be mutually exclusive.
