Made in England
Loopwheels are shock-absorbing wheels. Integral suspension gives you a smoother ride. For wheelchairs, bicycles and recumbent trikes.
Loopwheels are designed, engineered and made in Nottinghamshire by Jelly Products Ltd. It’s a registered design with patents pending.
The story of loopwheels is one of determination, and a streak of madness. They were invented and developed by Sam Pearce, in his home in Nottinghamshire, England. By training and profession, Sam is a mechanical engineer and industrial designer. By nature, he is some one who loves making things: designing, building, doing. He loves simplicity, and products that work well. Sam is practical and hands-on. He is stubborn and doesn’t give up easily. All useful traits when you find you’ve set out on a journey to reinvent the wheel . . .
Sam believes passionately in craftsmanship and in the skills and knowledge that come from practical experience. He worked with a small local company, KG Archery, manufacturers of archery bows, on the development of the springs for loopwheels. Master Bowyer Keith Gascoigne began his apprenticeship in 1962, and in 1991 developed the world’s first all carbon bow handle, the Paragon. His team at KG Archery are celebrating over 50 years in bowmanry and happy to be taking their expertise into new territory with Loopwheels.
We’re proud to be a British manufacturer of a world-class innovation in wheel technology.
Where it all started
In 2013 we raised funding to get loopwheels into production by running a Kickstarter campaign. 178 lovely people pledged their support; some are listed here.
Without these 178 people, you wouldn’t be able to buy loopwheels today. THANK YOU ALL!
