The BriTek wheel has some interesting potential because of its creative use of
membranes. The potential is there to construct a wheel that gives a superior ride and
superior gas mileage over both the pneumatic tire and the Michelin Tweel.
The rubber membranes may have to be replaced by aluminum membranes to
take full advantage of energy restoring potential.
Since the BriTek wheel is based on a sheet of membranes that connect an inner
wheel to an outer wheel, it has strong patent potential. The other wheel patents that we
have seen do not claim membranes as the deformational member.
