Loopwheels go into production

Kickstarter funded project out of the starting blocks and gets slot on last night's Gadget Show
Publish date:

The Loopwheels project, funded by Kickstarter, is now in production, with tooling having landed with the inventors of the wheel concept last week.

Working closely with Nottinghamshire bow-makers KG Archery, who make the all-important springs for the Loopwheels, the firm has appointed a production manager to oversee the creation of the first batch of 'suspension wheels'.

It is now expected that the firm's Kickstarter backers, including those who committed to Loopwheel-equipped Dahon Mu folding bikes, will receive their product from the end of August.

The Gadget Show last night carried a slot on the 're-invented wheel', with host Jason Bradbury said to be purchasing a set of wheels for himself. The episode is found here.

A new website and online store, to be found at Loopwheels.com is to go live during August.
