Perfect cube, perfect circle and perfect sine wave

The Shark Wheel geometry is the intersection of a cube and a sphere, a three-dimensional sine wave, a pattern found all throughout the natural world. It’s the shape of a shark’s jaw, that’s where the name comes from. Typically, shapes derived from nature demonstrate superior performance across industries. This is known as biomimicry.

David M. Patrick discovered the shape while studying natural sciences, and has since been developing the Shark Wheel to be a more efficient wheel with defined performance advantages.

The Shark Wheel offers a lightning fast ride, more slide control, and better grip through rain and rough terrains. We reinvented the wheel. Literally.

Scientific Studies

1. Finite dynamic analysis test and real world testing of wheel in Canada. Third party tested the Shark Wheel's performance under friction and tested its longevity. The Shark Wheel lasted 10% longer than any wheel they have ever tested. A traditional wheel has one defined center point and wears unevenly under friction. The Shark Wheel has a constantly changing center point, and is 540 degrees (as opposed to a traditional wheel at 360 degrees) and therefore lasts longer. 
2. Stress testing at UCLA school of engineering. A traditional wheel has nearly all of the stress on the bearing. The Shark Wheel disperses stresses along its six undulations evenly. Less stress is placed on the center/bearings and therefore the bearings will last longer when using the Shark Wheel.
