Reinventing the wheel, for a smoother ride
Loopwheels are wheels with integral suspension. Loopwheels give you a comfortable ride. You can take bumps and cobbles easily. You feel less vibration. And they’re really fun to ride.
We make 20″ loopwheels for commuter bikes and trikes. Most folding bikes don’t have suspension because conventional suspension forks add weight and bulk. That is particularly unwelcome in a bicycle which needs to fold to a compact size. Replacing the spoked wheels with Loopwheels provides full suspension in a bike which hasn’t got room for a traditional suspension system.
Following a successful Kickstarter campaign, we’ll soon be launching loopwheels for wheelchairs, in 24″ and 25″ diameters, designed to help you push over uneven streets, rough tracks, grass and gravel paths, with less effort. The carbon springs give you extra power to get up or down kerbs. They’re extremely strong and durable, needing very little maintenance. With quick release axles, loopwheels fit most active wheelchairs.
We know that “reinventing the wheel” is a bit of a joke. But that’s just what we’ve done. And when you ride on loopwheels, you’ll wonder why no one did it sooner.
