About ERW  video

16 Years, 74 issued claims...Unlike Air Pressure  ERW Vacuum  devours  heat & vibration. Elastic tension radially suspends hub in hoop. Centering force draws to perfect zero, creating high frequency in wheel suspension, screw force accumulation return.  Lateral displacement under radial tension. Rotation generates "hub lift" in hoop for superior lever effect.  Immediate handling, double digit efficiency /power delivery. "Freedom of movement" expressed as elastic gain/return.

Each ERW is hand fabricated from the finest space age materials Custom tuned to your body weight and application.

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.
