A pair of shock-absorbing wheels for wheelchairs, with a choice of colours! The integral suspension is designed to help you push over uneven streets, rough tracks, grass and gravel paths, with less effort.
Why choose these wheels?
Loopwheels reduce vibration. Their integral suspension is designed to help you push over uneven streets, rough tracks, grass and gravel paths, with less effort.
The carbon composite springs absorb tiring vibration, bumps and shocks and give you extra power to get up or down kerbs/curbs.
Loopwheels are more comfortable than standard wheelchair wheels and tackle cobblestones & potholes with ease. They absorb tiring vibration, bumps and shocks.
Loopwheels fit almost all manual, active wheelchairs using standard quick release axles. They have a standard axle bearing diameter of ½” (12.7mm). If you need a 12mm axle bearing instead of 12.7mm, please contact us or write it in “notes” box at check-out.
Loopwheels Classics are suitable for speeds of up to 7 km/h. They have not been tested for sitting in a moving vehicle: we recommend transferring into a vehicle seat.
Choose between 24″ and 25″ diameter wheels, with or without Schwalbe Marathon Plus pneumatic tyres.
Loopwheels are optimised for adults weighing over 55kg. If you weigh less than 50kg, you may not feel as much benefit from the suspension as someone heavier. Try our Loopwheels Urban with soft springs instead!
For comfort with a power attachment, choose our Loopwheels Urban or Loopwheels Extreme products.
Push rim options
Loopwheels come ready fitted with black aluminium push rims, included in the price. We also offer alternative upgrade options:
Curve are a high quality, ergonomic push rim designed and made in Germany. These are available in two sizes: ‘Curve L’ for a larger hand, or ‘Curve’ for smaller hands. Designed for wheelchair users with complete hand function.
Curve Tetra Grip push rims have the same ergonomic profile as the ‘Curve’ but in addition are rubber coated for greater grip. Designed for tetraplegics with triceps function and for wheelchair users with complete hand function but little hand strength. Also available as Curve Tetra-Grip L for larger hands – put in notes at check out or contact us for the larger size.
Gekko are designed for wheelchair users with complete hand function and complete or limited hand strength. Our best selling ergonomic push rim, Gekko have smooth sides and a rubberised top strip.
Clear anodised aluminium push rims (ie in silver) are available on request.
