WHEN British adventurers Rosie Stancer and Pom Oliver set out to cross the sprawling and inhospitable Aralkum Desert on foot in September, they knew they would need a sturdy set of wheels to propel carts carrying their supplies for the epic 600km, 17-day trek across the searing sands between Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan. Stancer, the Queen’s cousin, and her friend Oliver, turned to Wheeleez® to help them conquer their latest epic challenge.
Wheeleez® polyurethane balloon wheels are about to be challenged again. This time two UK scientists – Rosie Stancer and Pom Oliver will endeavour to cross the Aralkum Desert on foot. This desert, once the Aral Sea in Kazakhstan, has been rapidly growing since the 1960s. Where a beautiful natural body of water once stood now lies one of the world’s youngest deserts.
Wheeleez® wheels have been used over many years by professionals for a multitude of different purposes. Wheeleez® has been tasked for deserts expeditions, lifeguards daily work, the movie industry, and even into the wildest wild – across Canada’s northernmost island together with John Dunn and his fellow traveler Clive Rubens. John Dunn is a wilderness traveler and photographer with a passion for the vast and rugged landscapes of the Canadian Arctic, and has organized and successfully completed over 20 arctic expeditions, totaling over 1100 days in the field.
