Is this the future of skateboarding?
Using nanocomposite material, Nano Wheels have been developed to provide greater abrasion and wheel coning resistance, as well as increased durability, leading to a longer lifespan and greater endurance that will allow skateboarders to push the edge of what they can achieve.
Created by an avid North American skateboarder with a science and engineering background, Nano Tech Plastics has launched an innovative skateboarding wheel designed and produced using nanotechnology.
The nanocomposite material allows Nano Wheels to provide a more durable and reliable performance than traditional skateboard wheels as the company looks to take skateboarding to the next level. By combining specially-modified material and ultrasound technology, the team behind Nano Wheels have been able to develop a product that seeks to lead the way for a new realm of skateboarding technology.
Founder and lead inventor, Rafał Warzecha says Nano Wheels are the first skateboard wheels in the world designed and produced using nanotechnology.
“They arose from the need to extend the lifespan of wheels and to significantly improve riding comfort for skateboarders. Nanoparticles, on the account of their size, have physicochemical properties and better endurance than current wheels, and this will make Nano Wheels more reliable and durable than anything currently in the market,” he said.
Nano Wheels will offer two different options for skateboarders of varying skill and capability. The “Basic” variant is intended for all users, while the “Additional” variant has been designed for those seeking greater skid and performance.
Benefits of Nano Wheels include:
- Greater Abrasion Resistance, which leads to an intense, longer, and smoother ride.
- Higher Resistance to Coning, which reduces the need to rotate wheels.
- Longer Endurance: Nano Wheels will last longer than contemporary skateboard wheels.
- Better Riding Comfort: Significant hardness to tackle streets, skateparks, and ramps.
Targeted at the high-performance skater, the “Additional” variant is slick and abrasion resistant for greater skid.
Nano Tech Plastics is launching an Indiegogo campaign to spread awareness about Nano Wheels with nanocomposite material among consumers, skating enthusiasts, and the investment community.
