Why choose these wheels?
Loopwheels have integral suspension, designed to help you push over uneven streets, rough tracks, grass and gravel paths, with less effort.
The carbon 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 most manual wheelchairs using standard quick release axles. 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). If you need a 12mm axle bearing instead of ½” then please contact us.
Loopwheels are optimised for adults. If you weigh less than 50kg, you may not feel as much benefit from the suspension as someone heavier.
Push Rim Options
Loopwheels come ready fitted with black aluminium push rims, included in the price. We also offer alternative upgrade options:
Curve & Curve L 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 & Curve Tetra Grip L push rims have the same ergonomic shape as the ‘Curve/Curve L’ 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.
Gekko are designed for wheelchair users with complete hand function and complete or limited hand strength. Our best selling ergonomic push rim.
Clear anodised aluminium push rims are available on request.
We stock a range of ergonomic push rims, not all of which are listed here. If for example you prefer the Quadro pushrim from Carbolife, or a Q-Grip, please contact us as we’ll be happy to help.
We generally 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 contact us before placing your order if your need is urgent.
