ABOUT ERW  video 

The Future Tire Industry Airless High Speed & Efficient

ERW for Autonomous Vehicles...Never Flat 
ERW & Electric Vehicle...Extend Range
ERW for Avation...Added safety 

ERW & Transport...Improved Efficiency


Conservation of angular momentum increases with speed.

Elastic tension radially suspends hoop about wheel.
Opposing Bellows generate high frequency in wheel suspension.
Screw force accumulation / return benefits drive train efficiency.
Throttle response generates "hub lift" for lever effect.
"Freedom of movement" expressed as elastic potential.

Response rate of pneumatic tires measured in seconds. ERW milliseconds.

The 140 year old Pneumatic Tire has run it's course.

      Specific application funding opportunities.       

Industrial production required to meet peoples price point.
Opportunity...Support NEVER FLAT... Poor Road Commuter.

Britek Goals

Vacuum Pressurized Composite Hoops VS Pneumatic Tires?
Reliable Takeoffs & Landings. Anti-bounce..."Screw Force" For Traction / Wear.


ERW Testing

USDOT Laboratory tested ERW demonstrated 50% better coast down 55 mph. - 0 vs a 35.5 psi. pneumatic tire.






Bicycle ERW tested Oxylane Laboratory Finland 42 watts to turn a 1.5 meter drum at a constant 20 kph while weighted with 50 kilos. The other "airless" test 75-80 watts.

ERW at NASA Rover Challenge 2014 airless requirement back to back top ten finishes.

Screw Force Accumulation and Return 16% - 22% increase in drive train efficiency. Balance irregular bicycle pedal stroke.

Hub Displacement and Screw Force Powered "Rebound Response" to the Pull of Gravity...Plus for the first time in history... "Wind Resistance". Linear displacement returned as surge.
