Bugaboo snow wheel

Bugaboo snow wheel

Spark develops a snow-wheel for the Bugaboo Cameleon.

Driving in the snow

The Bugaboo Cameleon is the stroller famous for its small swivel wheels which make it highly manoeuvrable. But these wheels aren't so handy for in the snow or in the sand. And so Bugaboo, in collaboration with Spark, have developed snow-wheels. These bigger, non-rotating wheels with a suspension arm, can easily be swapped for the small rotating wheels and clicked into place.

Engineering and crash tests

The snow-wheel's suspension is asymmetric which means it can produce big forces. Spark designed the arm for the Bugaboo snow-wheel to FEM calculations and to crash test standards. The result is that Spark has reinforced the snow-wheel on exactly the right spots thereby optimizing it for production.
