With the orbital wheel the forces in action at the point of contact between tyre and ground no longer pass through the mid-wheel, but are transmitted directly to the suspended elements. The connecting points of the steering components are located peripherally for steering precision and to decrease pressure and vibration. Driving comfort and adherence have improved by lowering the centre of gravity. The forces also act at the CGM point to improve braking between 20 - 100%.
