The Optitec plan was to design and manufacture a device that could be used by anyone, would be versatile and transferable from one trailer type to another in the simplest possible way, and would be easily affordable.
Several versions of the Optitec Wheel were tested with all types of tyre compound, several motor capacities, gearbox sizes, and wheel constructions. It was tested with different types of trailer, varying loads and many different surfaces.
The Optitec Wireless Remote Control Wheel prototype testing was exhaustive and the results were all carefully considered to arrive at the most suitable design for every day most common use.
Here we have many Videos of actual operation in all sorts of different situations.
