Yes, we know the "P" in silent. But so is the green, efficient ultra-pneumatics (highly compressed air) used to move you down the road and over obstacles.


Add just a little or a whole bunch of power to your daily commute or weekend offroad excursion. Don't be shy,  we said its OK.


Keep the bike you love. 2ndwind™ laces into your existing front or back wheel and only adds 2-lbs. You also get a sexy carbon fiber air tank to show off.

A few glamour shots of the prototype unit for demonstration at the Venture Acceleration Fund.


This little baby won us $60,000 from the LANL VAF and NW Regional Development Council.


The prototype was installed on a 29-inch MTB tubeless wheel and used for development testing.

Trever Skilnick, holding the wheel, and Aviad Cahana in their workshop in Rio Rancho are showing off their invention: a tiny air motor that can help cyclists on long hill climbs and other obstacles. They designed the motor after a mountain- biking trip when Cahana, the more experienced cyclist, pulled far ahead of Skilnick on the uphill climbs. (Rio Rancho Observer—LEE  ROSS photo)
