“I came up with an idea that is life-changing.”

Sam Pearce invented and developed loopwheels in his home in Nottinghamshire, England. By training and profession, Sam is a mechanical engineer and industrial designer, but by nature he is someone who loves making things: designing, building, doing. He loves the way things fit together, the way things work and the way things are made.

He first had the idea of a wheel with integral suspension in 2007. He made his first basic prototype in 2009, but it took four years of development and testing to create 'loopwheel'.
