Honda Type R With The New OrbisDriven Wheels, Now An All-Wheel Drive Car

ORBIS’s patented technology divides a wheel or cog into two essential parts, a stationary hub and a rim or “ring.” The ring rotates about the stationary hub, driven by a lightweight, high-speed motor. Ring-Wheel™, Ring-Drive™, and Ring-Track™ are three iterations of the core technology.

OrbisDriven wheels bring multiple benefits to all types of vehicles. Adding 100 horsepower and turning any car into an all-wheel drive car.The Ring-Driven™ wheel weighs no more than a conventional wheel, yet incorporates the entire drivetrain and braking system for that wheel.

ORBIS Ring-Drive wheels are not only for clean-sheet automotive designs, but can be bolted on to any chassis regardless of size, weight or vehicle class.

ORBIS has retrofitted a 2017 Honda Civic Type R with ORBIS Ring-Drive wheels, replacing the passive rear wheels on this front-drive vehicle. Each ORBIS wheel provides an additional 50 horsepower and 70lb-ft of torque to each wheel on demand, dramatically improving the 0-60 time.
