Nothing short of… revolutionary, Energy Return Wheel Airless Bicycle Tires by Britek literally reinvent the wheel… or at least, the tire. The multipatented design replaces inflated tubes with a rubber tread stretched over tension-adjustable carbon nano tube reinforced composite rods. What all this means and does is turn your wheels into springy slingshots, as the rubber contracts and expands on its way round and round, the claim being that the ERW redirects additional torque to the wheel compared to regular pneumatic tires, actually helping to push you forward, thereby reducing energy requirements. The same tech works for cars and other conveyances—the ERW can replace any wheel—so the overall planetary impact of this invention by Colorado’s Brian Russel could be… mega. Watch the vid!
