It’s often said that there’s no reason to reinvent the wheel, but one revolutionary designer has done just that. Andrea Mocellin’s Revolve Wheel is an airless, puncture-proof and foldable wheel that is compatible with most bicycles and wheelchairs. Mocellin says that the new take on the old wheel was inspired by the growing trend of foldable vehicles, which are typically limited in how small they can get by the size of their wheels.
The Revolve Wheel is designed to be the first modular wheel that can be taken easily on the road. The unique hexagonal structure folds down to a compact pod, allowing for effortless pack up – perfect for biking excursions or city adventures.
Since the tire is airless, it’s even more convenient for adventure cyclists – there’s no need to bring along a bulky tire pump. According to the designer, the wheel is made with foldable bikes in mind as well as wheelchairs and other wheel-based forms of travel.
