Revolve Reinvents the wheel to create folding airless bicycle tires
the ‘revolve wheel’ is an airless, foldable tire alternative that is puncture-proof and compatible with most bicycles and wheelchairs. created by german designer, andrea mocellin, his modern take on the old wheel design was influenced by the growing trend of foldable vehicles, which are often limited due to the size of their wheels.

the ‘revolve wheel‘ offers a solution for folding bicycles that have had to use smaller wheels to be able to fold to a small enough size for carrying – most manufacturers use 16 or 20 inch wheels. mocellin’s wheel provides full size 26-inch wheels that can fold to less than one third of their height. its unique hexagonal structure folds down to a sculptural pod, allowing for effortless pack up with an aesthetic reminiscent of a sleek loudspeaker. the ‘revolve’ is designed to be the first modular wheel that can be taken easily on the road.
