THE STORY OF WHEELA BEGAN ON A BOAT

.

Sailing is a way of life. You explore new destinations, meet new people, visit new places. You have limited time and very little space onboard. Every time you dock, you face the questions:

 

How do you explore the port, if you cannot take your bike onboard? How do you go shopping and sightseeing when the weather is too hot for a walk?

 

Dealing with these everyday transport issues, the first concept of WHEELA was born in 2011.

THE STORY OF WHEELA BEGAN ON A BOAT

Sailing is a way of life. You explore new destinations, meet new people, visit new places. You have limited time and very little space onboard. Every time you dock, you face the questions:

 

How do you explore the port, if you cannot take your bike onboard? How do you go shopping and sightseeing when the weather is too hot for a walk?

 

Dealing with these everyday transport issues, the first concept of WHEELA was born in 2011.

EVOLUTION OF WHEELA

 

The first concept consisted of two tubes connected in a collapsible X-form. Simple as it was, the rear-wheel steering made it impossible to keep the balance.

 

Although the original idea has never changed, the exact shape, design, and construction have gone through numerous stages of development. The final product is now exactly what it was meant to be. Fast, comfortable, collapsible, lightweight and, transportable.

 

As of 2015, WHEELA is a registered trademark and original patented design.
