What’s more frustrating, your bicycle tire being stolen or being punctured? I’d have to say they’re pretty much equal. What’s worse is if it’s punctured then stolen…nightmare. There’s been many a time I wish I could just carry my tire around with me but it’s quite the cumbersome task that, given the option to leave it, I will.
Due to the ingenious design by Andrea Mocellin, the Revolve Wheel, this is a thing of the past. Revolve is an airless, puncture-proof and foldable wheel that is compatible with most bicycles and wheelchairs. The unique hexagonal structure folds down to a compact pod, allowing for an effortless pack up – perfect for biking excursions or city adventures.
This new tire eliminates the needs for a pump, puncture repair kit or any additional tomfoolery when it comes to replacing a tire. Not to mention these tires look so damn cool, if you were given the choice of these tires or some normal road bike tires, I think we can both agree this one gets the win – hands down.
The Revolve Wheel is a winner of the Asia Design Prize for the year 2018.
