A pair of black shock-absorbing wheels for wheelchairs with integral suspension, designed to help you push over uneven streets, rough tracks, grass and gravel paths, with less effort.
Who choose these wheels?
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, as well as bumps and shocks.
Loopwheels fit most manual wheelchairs. 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). Please contact us if your chair has a 12mm axle bearing instead of ½ inch (12.7mm).
These are our black loopwheels, with a choice of logo colours. We also make these wheels for wheelchairs in six bright coloured options – see the separate product listing.
Loopwheels are optimised for adults. If you weigh less than 50kg, you may not feel as much benefit from the loopwheels suspension as some one heavier.
Add-on accessories and optional extras
Choose ½ inch diameter quick release axles (or contact us if you need 12mm diameter). We stock the most common lengths of 99mm, 104mm and 109mm. Other axle lengths are available from other suppliers so we may be able to obtain these for you if you need longer or shorter axles.
Push rim options
Loopwheels come ready fitted with black aluminium push rims, included in the price. We also offer alternative upgrade options. You can choose to have your loopwheels fitted with one of the following push rim options:
Silver brushed aluminium push rims are available on request (+£20 per pair, 24″ only).
Curve and Curve L are a fantastic, high quality, ergonomic push rim. They are designed and made in Germany, and were 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 especially 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).
Please contact us if you prefer the Surge LT push rim brand, or a stainless steel hand rim, as it is possible to fit these to 24″ Loopwheels (6 riv-nut version only).
We usually 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 check with us before placing your order if a delay would be problematic for you.
