Wheel re-invented outside box

Soft Wheel - suspension in the spokes

You should always be careful with what you say. Seemingly harmless expressions can keep you from opportunities. Luckily, Gilad Wolf ”thought out of the box” and ”re-invented the wheel”!

It’s a wheel primarily for wheelchairs, but it has already been tested on bicycles. And the new thing is that the suspension is in the three spokes, instead of in some structure that the wheel is attached to. Wheelchairs don’t have that kind structure, so with this invention they can provide their users with a bump free, less harmful, ride.
