The 'energy return wheel' concept by colorado-based designer Brian Russell demonstrates the possibilities of advanced wheel technologies. Instead of air, it uses rubber stretched over a series of carbon nano tube reinforced composite rods to provide its cushioning. These rods can be adjusted, changing the tension of the rubber to suit different types of terrain, improves flexing and recoil cycling.
