Ultra-light wheelchair wheels
The extremely light Magnesium Wheels significantly reduce the total weight of a wheelchair. The 24” wheels weigh just 540 grams per wheel (without handrim and tire). This light weight makes the use of the wheelchair less intensive and therefore it puts less of a strain on the muscles of the wheelchair user.
“As a top athlete, I am constantly looking for the best means of tapping into my best performance. I developed these unique lightweight magnesium wheels together with my sponsor MG Wheels. Because they’re so light, they give me that extra edge, both on and off the court!”
Comfortable grip coating optional
The handrims have a specially developed grip coating that stays cooler than rubber. And without the usual rubber covers, the handrims are also lighter. Every ounce counts! Std with anodised handrims
Magnesium: the metal of the future
Magnesium is the lightest structural metal currently available in the world. It is approximately 34% lighter by volume than aluminium and 15% lighter than carbon. In addition to lightweight construction, a few of the other advantages that magnesium offers are excellent fatigue resistance, denting and buckling resistance, and the highest known damping capacity of any structural metal. The result is a much smoother ride than any other material out there.
