Loopwheels Urban

£2,138.00£2,696.00

Loopwheels have developed a wheel with suspension for manual propulsion or use with a power attachment, for everyday use, whatever the surface.

Description

Go Comfortable, Go Anywhere.  Loopwheels Urban was invented in response to your feedback:

  • An everyday wheel for all occasions – from the streets to the park to the forest
  • For manual propelling or using with an e-bike style power attachment
  • Delivering all-important comfort.
  • Wheels that look great, look technical – and perform brilliantly.

And now with colour options! Loopwheels Urban can be ordered with the hub and rim hinges anodised in either a metallic purple, red or blue, as well as our original black.

  • Wheels are hand-made to order:
    • Orders can take up to 3 weeks before dispatch so please get in touch if your order is urgent so we can give you an expected lead time.
    • For colour anodised hubs and hinges, allow 3-4 weeks.

Choosing Your Spring Rate
The springs are made from hi-tech carbon composite materials and are available in 3 spring strengths: Soft, Regular and Stiff.

These rates allow you to get the best comfort for your weight and the typical activities that you undertake. The rule of thumb is that the heavier you weigh and the faster you go, the stiffer the recommended spring rate. But in the end, it’s a personal choice! Some people just prefer a softer ride and others like a firmer suspension.

 

Weighing 2.87lb (1.36kg) per wheel, and removing much more vibration than any other brand of a wheel, it is the only wheel you’ll need to conquer the urban jungle – or indeed, anywhere you choose to roll.
