Loopwheels

Wheels with built-in suspension

Loopwheels are an innovative approach to wheelchair suspension and shock absorption.

Loopwheels are designed with suspension within the wheel itself: in place of rigid spokes, they have three loop-shaped springs.

The spring system between the hub and the rim of the wheel cushions the user from bumps and potholes in the road. The springs absorb road noise, reducing vibration through the frame and into the rider’s arms and body. High-pressure or puncture-resistant tyres can be used.

Tangential Suspension | Suspension in every direction

Unlike suspension forks, which only work in one plane, Loopwheels provide tangential suspension—they absorb force from any direction. Loopwheels respond to head-on force in the same way as they do to a force from above or below.

Smooth Ride | Increased comfort

Loopwheels reduce the level of vibration—“road noise”—through the chair frame and up into the arms, wrists and shoulders.

They will absorb even small shocks from the vibration of the road—unlike regular wheels. This means really smooth ride—even on a rough surface!
