Shark Wheel’s wheel design gives it better maneuverability over debris, water and other conditions that deteriorate the performance of conventional wheels.
The wheel has been designed with a wave pattern allowing the wheel to have a thin contact area. With there being less friction you get a quicker ride as a result.
The unique alternating pattern of the wheel allows it to channel liquid, sand or gravel out from the surface of the wheel. This allows for a greater contact area with the ground. Eliminating the possibilities of hydroplaning and debris related falls.

A taut Hula Hoop sized net is placed at ankle level between a pair of two player teams. You smack the palm-sized ball down on the net so it ricochets up at your opponents. They have up to three hits between them to control it and bounce it back to you. When they miss, you score. First team to 21 wins
