Extra Carbon, Extra Confidence, Extra Control
With 12% extra hi-tech carbon than our classic Loopwheels, Loopwheels Carbon offer a sportier ride – so you can go steadier and stronger than before.
A pair of shock-absorbing wheels for wheelchairs with integral suspension, designed to help you go more comfortably over uneven streets, rough tracks, grass and gravel paths.
Why choose these wheels?
Loopwheels reduce vibrations by up to 70% compared with metal spoked wheels. Our innovative Loopwheel technology now comes with 12% extra hi tech carbon. This extra carbon creates a slightly stiffer spring. It’s easier to get around and turn at speed, which means a more comfortable and more stable ride, especially if travelling and cornering at speed.
Because of the integral suspension, 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 won’t 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 a larger hand, or for the smaller hand we recommend the Curve (+£260 a pair). These are designed for wheelchair users with complete hand function.
Curve Tetra Grip and Curve Tetra 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). These are our best selling ergonomic push rim.
Clear anodised aluminium push rims are available on request (+£20 per pair, 24″ only).
We stock a range of other push rims, not all of which are listed here. If you’re not sure which to choose, please contact us as we’ll be delighted to discuss what you need.
