Shock absorbing suspension wheels for wheelchairs. For greater comfort and independence.
So you can go more places, more easily, more comfortably
Loopwheels are shock-absorbing wheels with integral suspension, designed speci cally for using with a wheelchair to make your day easier, more comfortable, and more fun.
The integral suspension in loopwheels constantly adjusts to smooth out uneven terrain. In addition, the carbon composite springs absorb tiring vibration.
The result? Less jolting and less vibration mean loopwheels are more comfortable than standard wheels, whatever surface you’re travelling on.
With loopwheels, you’ll find you require less effort to push over uneven pavements, cobbles, grass and gravel paths. It’s easier to get up curbs too.
Loopwheels are specially designed to cope with bumpy ground, as well as smoother surfaces.
Loopwheels are ideal with hand bikes, front wheel attachments and other motorised aids. You’ll really appreciate the full benefits of loopwheel suspension when you’re travelling fast over rough ground!
And they look gorgeous too, of course.
How does a Loopwheel work?
The loops in the wheel are springs that constantly adjust to changes in terrain and other external forces and jolts, keeping the rider suspended at the wheel hub. The hub makes small and larger movements within the rigid rim.
This provides a very smooth ride and is an efficient suspension system.
What do you get in the box?
Two loopwheels, fitted with push rims; 6 spacers for any minor adjustments to your axles; fitting instructions and our one year manufacturer’s warranty.
Options at additional cost: tyres and tubes, quick release axles, silicon push rim covers, padded carry-bag for your wheels.
If you’ve ordered tyres and tubes from us, these will arrive ready fitted to your wheels.
We offer a range of push rim options.
You can choose a wide (19mm) or narrow (11mm) distance between the wheel rim and your push rim, to suit the size of your hand and how you push.
Included with our standard Loopwheel is a black aluminium powder-coated push rim.
Alternatively you can choose from our range of top quality ergonomic brands such as CarboLife. Loopwheels have a standard 6 rivnut fitting and we’ll supply the rim fitted for you.
Loopwheels have standard axle bearings, just like all manual wheelchair wheels, so they can be easily swapped on and off.
Standard loopwheels use the most common,1⁄2 inch diameter bearing. We offer a 12mm too.
You can use your own quick release axle pin, or buy from us.
Multi Colour Options
You can choose a pair of loopwheels in any combination from our range of colours and logos, to your individual taste.
You can choose to alternate two or three colours for your own special customised look.
