Unlike traditional skateboard wheels, the Shark Wheel boasts a cube-design that reportedly feel perfectly circular when you’re riding, but look like a square from the side when in motion. Its creators tout that these are faster, have phenomenal grip, slide better and look incredible. Continue reading for a video and more information.
Here’s a bit more information on them: “It has less surface area touching the ground on hard surfaces, allowing for low rolling resistance. The alternating path can bite into soft terrain, meaning it can roll seamlessly in soft surfaces. The alternating center of gravity allows for superior high-speed stability, eliminating speed-wobble that occurs from the geometry of normal wheels.
When used on hard surfaces, the Shark Wheel produces a low friction profile similar to a high performance, low rolling resistance tire. This allows for less energy to be used as the contact patch is very small. KickStarter page.
