SnakeVim A weight optimised low pressure cast aluminium wheel combined with a low-friction tyre developed for energy savings and reduced C02 emissions for fleet vehicles.
The assembled wheel is characterised by an intensive symbiosis of design and engineering.
The narrow straight spokes add optical size to the wheel, continue over to the tread surface of the low-noise tyre profile, and unify both components into an ensemble.
Short spokes unobtrusively guarantee the static and thereby allow for visual lightness. Support and Prototyping are provided by Borbet GmbH Sauerland and Continental AG Hanover.
