Loopwheels innovative shock-absorbing wheels with integral suspension for wheelchairs
Loopwheels are shock-absorbing wheels with integral suspension, designed for enhanced performance and greater comfort, developed at the request of wheelchair users. Loopwheels give you a smoother, more comfortable ride and enable you to go more places, more easily.
Carbon composite springs replace conventional spokes, providing a superior suspension system that constantly adjusts to uneven terrain. Loopwheels are more comfortable than standard wheels: the carbon springs absorb tiring vibration, as well as bumps and shocks. They’re extremely strong and durable, needing little or no maintenance.
Loopwheels for wheelchairs help the user (or their carer) push over uneven streets, rough tracks and gravel paths, with less effort, and the carbon springs give you extra power to get up or down curbs. Loopwheels fit most manual wheelchairs: they use standard 1/2 inch quick release axles and are available in 24″ and 25″ diameter sizes. They come ready fitted with a standard black aluminium push rim, set at either 11mm or 19mm from the wheel rim (narrow or wide fitting). Tyres are not supplied: Schwalbe Marathon Plus are recommended, which are widely available to buy.
Shock-absorbing wheels, to take you wherever you want to go
These 24″ and 25″ wheels for manual wheelchairs make life easier and more comfortable. Loopwheels help you roll up and down curbs, over cobbles, uneven paving and on softer tracks and paths, with less effort.
Less effort or jolting over a kerb
You’ll find you can ascend or come down a kerb much more easily with Loopwheels. The power of the springs helps you roll up over the kerb, with less effort. The springs cushion you from jolting too.
Easier and more comfortable on cobbles
Carbon composite springs replace conventional spokes, providing a superior suspension system that constantly adjusts to uneven terrain. The carbon springs absorb tiring vibration, as well as bumps and shocks.
Suspension from the hub
The Loopwheel hub constantly adjusts to any unevenness in terrain that the wheels encounter. The hub can move in every plane, not just up and down.
Push rim included
Choice of either a wide (19mm) or narrow (11mm) distance between the wheel and push rim. Tyres are not included. Schwalbe Marathon Plus are recommended and are widely available.
Go where the road takes you
We reinvented the wheel, to give you a smoother ride. Whether the path ahead is rough or smooth, Loopwheels will absorb the shocks.
