Came across these crazy wheels, they look square but only from the side and they roll like crazy!
The Shark Wheel is one of the most innovative and technologically advanced wheels on the market right now. It has been designed by a company Shark Wheel LLC in Lake Forest, CA by David Patrick. The wheel has been literally re-invented.
The Shark Wheel is flat on six sides and has many performance advantages when you compare this wheel with a traditional wheel. The wheels appear to be square but roll smoothly like conventional wheels.
Why the name Shark Wheel? Well, the wheel has a nearly identical shape of the shark’s jaw. When the wheel is in motion, it appears to be a rolling cube, but when you ride it feels perfectly circular.
Because of the design, the thinner contact patch from the three strips gives a faster ride, and less rolling resistance while cutting a path through dirt.
