Why choose these wheels?
Loopwheels have integral suspension, 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/curbs. They’re wonderfully comfortable over cobblestones. Potholes needn’t be a problem any more. Loopwheels are more comfortable than standard wheelchair wheels. They absorb tiring vibration, bumps and shocks.
Loopwheels fit most manual wheelchairs using standard quick release axles. Choose between 24″ and 25″ diameter wheels, with or without Schwalbe Marathon Plus pneumatic tyres. These wheels have a standard axle bearing diameter of ½” (12.7mm). If you need a 12mm axle bearing instead of ½” then please contact us.
Loopwheels are optimised for adults. If you weigh less than 50kg, you may not feel as much benefit from the suspension as someone heavier.
Push Rim Options
Loopwheels come ready fitted with black aluminium push rims, included in the price. We also offer alternative upgrade options:
Curve and Curve L are a fantastic, high quality, ergonomic push rim designed and made in Germany, and new to the UK in 2016. These are available in two sizes: the Curve L is for an adult hand, or for the smaller hand we recommend the Curve (+£260 a pair). These are designed for wheelchair users with complete hand function.
Curve Grip and Curve Grip L push rims. These have the same ergonomic shape as the Curve and Curve L, and in addition are rubber coated for greater grip (+£330 a pair). These are designed for tetraplegics with triceps function and for other wheelchair users with complete hand function but little hand strength.
Gekko are designed for wheelchair users with complete hand function and complete or limited hand strength (+£330 a pair).
Clear anodised aluminium push rims are available on request (+£20 per pair, 24″ only).
We stock a range of ergonomic push rims, not all of which are listed here. If for example you prefer the Para-Grip pushrim from Carbolife, please contact us as we’ll be delighted to discuss what you need.
We generally dispatch Loopwheels with aluminium push rims within 1 week. Wheels with push rim upgrades may take a little longer. We try to keep at least one pair of every push rim variation in stock but please contact us before placing your order if your need is urgent.
Quick Release Axles, Tyres & Carry Bags
We have additional products available to buy separately including a wide range of quick release axles, tyres and padded carry bags for the wheels. These can all be found on our accessories page here.
