Loopwheels: In-Wheel Bicycle Suspension

May 1, 2013

Category: Gear

Reinventing the wheel, literally, Loopwheels bring a full-fledged suspension system to your bicycle, all built right into the wheels themselves.

Rather than your typical 20 inch spoke wheels, Loopwheels are equipped with three carbon composite springs that act as shock absorbers, creating a smooth, comfortable ride for users without the need for traditional frame mounted suspension. The system can be easily installed on any bicycle, and has been rigorously tested over the past few years to ensure the end product is of the highest quality.  After a stellar debut at the Bespoked Bicycle show a few weeks ago, we think this product will have no trouble hitting their Kickstarter goal.
