3 SoftWheel riders will be competing in Rio!
Dror Cohen, our hero test rider, will be competing with his sailing team; Paralympic rower Moran Samuel, gold medal at the 2015 World Rowing Cup, will try to pick up gold again; amazing Paralympic swimmer Inbal Pezaro, who won bronze in London in 2012, is also a strong candidate for a medal.
We met US Transportation Secretary, Anthony Foxx, in Israel, and later he talked about SoftWheel as an example of a small startup that he envisions making a big impact.
Our team went to Eurobike and showcased our new Fluent wheel for bicycles that is a production-ready prototype with a more contemporary, lighter-weight design, and outstanding performance.
