Abstract: A Loop wheel is a wheel with integral suspension, designed for higher shock-absorbing performance and better comfort. Loop wheels offer you a smoother ride. They’re more comfortable than usual wheels: the carbon springs absorb exhausting vibration, in addition to the bumps and the shocks. They’re extraordinarily robust and durable. Material used for manufacturing loop wheel springs is composite material which carefully developed to offer ultimate compression and lateral stability as well as durability. Specially-designed connectors attach the springs to the hub and rim. The three loops in every wheel work along as a self-correcting system. This spring combination between the hub and the rim of the wheel provides better suspension that steadily adjusts to uneven terrain cushioning the rider from abnormalities in the road. In effect, the hub floats inside the rim, adjusting continuously as shocks from the uneven road hit the rim of the wheel. The spring configuration permits the torque to be transferred smoothly between the hub and the rim.
