Shark Wheel

shark wheelDavid Patrick and Zack Fleishman hope to reinvent the wheel when they pitch Shark Wheel, a “square” skateboard wheel, in Shark Tank episode 623. The Shark Wheel isn’t exactly a square, it’s a combination of a cube, a sphere, and a three-dimensional sine wave. Patrick got the idea for the Shark Wheel from a shark’s jaw, a shape that appears over and over in nature. The unique shape of the wheels allows skateboarders to smoothly ride through gravel and other rough terrain and have better traction in wet conditions – without sacrificing speed or maneuverability.

Patrick got the Shark Wheel off the ground quickly in the Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator, “the business equivalent of baseball’s farm system.” LACI is a non-profit business incubator that offers LA area start-ups mentoring, office space, and assistance raising capital. Mr. Patrick learned well: he successfully raised over $79,000 on a $10,000 goal on Kickstarter back in 2013; he also raised another $27,000 on Indie GoGo in April 2015.

Shark Wheel sells their products in skate shops, on Amazon, and through their website. A set of four Shark Wheels will set you back $45-$70, depending on the style; Shark Wheel also sells skate boards and wheel mounting hardware. Patrick, along with his CEO Mr. Flieshman, are likely looking for cash to fuel their expansion and to fund production.

Will Shark Wheel square a deal with a Shark?

Shark Wheel Shark Tank Recap

David and Zack will pitch the panel of five Sharks on the business and its prospects for growth. They’ll need to convince Mark Cuban, Lori Grenier, Kevin O’Leary, Daymond John, and Nick Woodman that the company is worthy of a Shark investment. A good business plan, good financials, and sales data will impress the Sharks, but they’ll need to show them THEY are capable of running the company to “Shark standards.” A full pitch re-cap on Shark Wheel will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.

    It seems the bigger these wheels get, the less well they work. But they are great for products that have wheels about the size of Skateboard wheels, and they really do roll right over gravel and things that normally stop a skateboard straight out. They’re not as good for trick wheels (depends on the trick, but in general) but they are great cruising wheels.
