Loopwheels Extreme Off-Road
Loopwheels Extreme User Manual
Pair of Loopwheels Extreme suspension wheels for wheelchairs with black aluminium push rims. Including Schwalbe Marathon plus off-road tires.
The Loopwheels Extreme Offroad are a recent development by Loopwheels that are tailored to users who enjoy high-speed riding with MTB tires, and power assist attachments to their wheelchair. For everyday wheels by Loopwheels, check out the Loopwheels Urban.
Loopwheels Extreme was invented in response to your feedback:
Extra Stability, Extra Speed, Extra Freedom
Loopwheels have developed a robust wheel with world-class suspension that works at higher speeds, for use with power attachments.
Choosing Your Spring Rate
The springs use hi-tech carbon composite materials and are available in 3 spring strengths (Soft, Regular and Stiff).
These rates will allow customers to get the best comfort and health protection for their weight and the typical activities that they undertake.
Weighing under 3lbs (1.36kg) per wheel, and removing much more vibration than any other brand of a wheel, it is the definitive wheel if you love travelling faster on tracks and off-road.
This 22″ wheel takes a larger, Mountain bike style tire, the Marathon Plus to bring the whole wheel with tire to 24″ Diameter.
Wheel Size24" Outer Diameter with Marathon Plus tire , but mounted onto a (507 mm) 22" rim so you can switch out with a everyday 24" wheel set on 1" tires easily and without a change in rear seat height. Most riders have 24" rear wheels and so if you try and put big Moutain bike style tires on a 24" rim you will end up raising your rear seat height.

What are the benefits of Gekko handrims?
Perfect ergonomics and outstanding grip combined with low weight make the Gekko a unique, revolutionary grip tire. The rugged, interchangeable silicone lip, fully integrated into the profile, contributes to the rider's exceptional handling characteristics and provides unsurpassed ride comfort. The anodized, low-friction surface on the sides also reduces the heat during braking.
Which profile size and coating do we recommend?
Gladly we recommend the Gekko S for small hands to children's hands. Children learn at a young age the right use or the right grip. For normal and large hands, we recommend the larger GEKKO profile.
