In today’s video, I want to show you a cool experiment – shock absorbers mounted on bicycle wheels! These wheels are designed to help you push over uneven streets, rough tracks, grass and gravel paths, with less effort.

Three cylindrical shock absorbers radiate out from the hub to the rim, taking the place of spokes. They remain rigid when going over smooth surfaces, but compress when the wheel takes particularly big hits.
By building the shocks directly into the frame of the wheel, you’d be adding another level of shock absorption between the hard rocky earth and you, the rider.This design takes suspension to the next level and could benefit mountain bikers who want a cushier ride.
It also means less stress upon the frame of the bike itself, which can lead to a longer life for the vehicle, as well.That being said, this is still just a do it yourself prototype project./The Q
