Rob Lilwall walks 71 days across the desert;
his Gear rolls behind him on WheelEEZ® wheels

Let me take you on a journey…but don’t worry, you don’t have to leave your couch, just keep reading…

Imagine…a solo journey. For 71 days only you… and only walking…

Already sounds hard? Imagine walking across the notorious Taklamakan Desert in Western China.

The Taklamakan Desert, also known as the ‘Place of Ruins’ or the ‘Sea of Death’, is the largest desert in China, at over 620mi (1000km) long and 250mi (400km) wide. Lying between the Tien Shan and Kunlun mountain ranges, the Taklamakan Desert is a waterless death trap, experiencing an average annual rainfall of just 0.4inch (1cm). Legend states that you can get into the Taklamakan, but you will never get out!

Rob Lilwall did! He got in and he got out. Solo. Imagine the strength of the character, the power of the mind and the ability of the body you need for that journey!

But that’s not all. You also need some luck and help. And here comes Odysseus, a homemade beach cart equipped with four superior quality WheelEEZ wheels. Only WheelEEZ® low pressure balloon wheels can carry 100kg of load over the soft desert sand and handle the temperature range from -15 to +75 Celsius.

WheelEEZ® is proud to have been able to assist Rob with this legendary journey!
