A pair of shock absorbing loopwheels with integral suspension,to help you push over uneven streets, rough tracks, grass and gravel paths with less effort. The carbon springs in these wheels give you extra power to get up or down kerbs. You’ll find loopwheels more comfortable than standard wheels as they absorb tiring vibration as well as bumps and shocks. They’re also extremely strong and durable.
The wheels fit most manual wheelchairs. You can choose between 24” and 25” options. These are coloured loopwheels with coloured bands
Supplied as a pair.
How does the loopwheel technology work?
Loopwheel springs are made from a carbon composite material, carefully developed and tested to give optimum compression and lateral stability as well as strength and durability. Specially-designed connectors attach the springs to the hub and rim.
The three loops in each wheel work together as a self-correcting system. This spring system between the hub and the rim of the wheel provides suspension that constantly adjusts to uneven terrain – cushioning the rider from bumps and potholes in the road. In effect, the hub floats within the rim, adjusting constantly as shocks from an uneven road hit the rim of the wheel.
The spring configuration allows the torque to be transferred smoothly between the hub and the rim
