Softwheel is developing the most energy-efficient and energy-absorbing wheel system in the world. Their mission is to craft a smart wheel that helps people create a smarter planet. Their team of engineers and designers are passionate and dedicated to improving mobility & energy-efficiency for all industries relying on wheels for transportation.
SoftWheel’s patented technology replaces the traditional spoke-and-rim wheel with an innovative suspension system moved inside of a rigid rim and centered around the wheel hub. Using “in-wheel” shock absorbers that automatically switch between providing rigidity or cushioning – and lowering the unsprung mass in electric vehicles – SoftWheels achieve unparalleled comfort and energy-efficiency.
