ABOUT SHARK WHEEL

WHY ARE SHARK WHEELS BETTER?

SKATEBOARDING<br>GOES OVER ROUGH TERRAIN

SKATEBOARDING
GOES OVER ROUGH TERRAIN

The ability to go over rough terrain is the #1 advantage. The 30 degree approach angle of the Shark Wheel strikes obstacles at an angle and tends to push them left and right out of the way. A traditional wheel acts like a steamroller and tries to go over objects, while Shark Wheels tend to move around them. The angle also reduces shock significantly (think of going over a speed bump in a car an angle to reduce the shock)

PALLET JACK<br>LAST 50% LONGER<br>

PALLET JACK
LAST 50% LONGER



In pallet jack/forklift wheels (material handling industry), Shark Wheels last 50% longer because they dissipate heat in a sine wave footprint (the most efficient shape)

CASTERS<br> 57% LESS FRICTION

CASTERS
57% LESS FRICTION

In casters, Shark Wheels have 57% less friction when in motion making it much easier to push carts, wheelchairs, and other applications that use casters

FARMING<br>MINIMIZE TRENCH DIGGING

FARMING
MINIMIZE TRENCH DIGGING

In farming, Shark Wheels are the only wheels that don ' t continue to go over the same path. So, they significantly minimize trench digging, which costs farmers a lot of money and time to repair. Trenches also lead to the failure of other equipment (gear boxes, drivetrains, etc. ). In the most recent test (funded by the US Government), Shark Wheels dug a 1" trench, while the industry leading wheel dug a 14" trench.


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.

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..

SKATEBOARD ADVANTAGES

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:


ROUGH TERRAIN

ROUGH TERRAIN



The best wheel over rough terrain. The sine wave shape tends to pushdebris and small objects out of the way smoothing the ride. Also, the best wheel over wet conditions.

APPROACH ANGLE

APPROACH ANGLE



Shark Wheels perform similar to how drivers intuitively know to go over a speed bump at an angle to reduce the shock in their car. The unique 30 degree approach angle of the Shark Wheel reduces shock and deflects objects due to its approach angle. A normal wheel is a steamroller and tries to go over obstacles in its way. Shark Wheels tend to move around objects

LAST LONGER

LAST LONGER



Scientifically tested to last up to 50% longer when cruising. Shark Wheel has multiple center points compared to one center point on a traditional wheel. Flatspot resistant

BETTER SLIDE CONTROL

BETTER SLIDE CONTROL

The Shark Wheel actually spins as it slides acting like a car's antilock brakes. The 3 lips of the Shark Wheel compared to 1 lip on a traditional wheel give predictable slides. Also, slides are easier to initiate due to less surface area in contact with the ground-less friction to initiate slide.

LIGHTING FAST

LIGHTING FAST



Less friction touching the ground, less rolling resistance. 57% less rolling resistance

David Patrick

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.

Farming Wheel

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:


Partners

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.
