I want a hub motor with a very soft ‘tire’ like compound. Does it exist?
I want a hub motor, but I also want to be able to have some of the advantages of a pneumatic setup without actually having air in the tire…basically, I don’t want an off-road setup, I just want a wheel/tire compound that is suitable for rocky roads, riding over sticks and broken concrete slabs, etc. I know a large PU wheel could do most of that, but I also want something that is SOFT like a tire so it’s quiet and absorbs vibration. Best example I can think of is a car tire, minus the air inside.
Does it exist?
