Introducing the new all aluminium scissor brake

We are delighted to bring to you new, high-quality and high durability scissor brakes. These anodised aluminium brakes have been designed to outperform any current composite brakes on the market.

Ease of use

The brakes have a very easy and efficient press on and flick off function which is suitable for all abilities, even those with limited hand function. They also include a ribbed finish on the brake plate allowing for superior hold in different conditions as well as different tyre pressures.

Will these fit my wheelchair?

The new aluminium scissor brakes come with standard 19 mm barrel meaning they will fit the majority of brake clamps so you can just swap out your existing brakes for these.

What about maintaining the brakes?

As mentioned, these brakes have been designed to be low maintenance and high quality so there is very little you will need to do. Tightening of the bolts every now and then will make sure they stay performing to the max. Like ourselves, long-term users of other types of scissor brakes will be aware that the weak point is the spring, however, with these brakes this is no longer an issue as the spring is easily replaced if it happens to fail. These can be purchased from us here ... Aluminium scissor break spring

Perfect Brake
Review
Replaced my plastic scissor brakes which were modified so i could change the spring which brakes every few months but, still flet like they only just worked. The Aluminium Scissor bakes are so much better, perfectly made by somebody who totally understands engineering and work exactly as brakes should. A must have if you are a wheelchair user. Will spec these for my next chair as they should come as standard not the cheap plastic rubbish they fit on expensive wheelchairs. If you have not got these yet buy some, you wont be disappointed.

Bought to replace plastic scissor brakes which are notoriously short lived! Not fitted yet, job for the weekend. But appear great quality, same price as plastic, and benefit of replaceable springs Review by Ian (Posted on 27/08/2021)
Great brakes, good upgrade from composites
Review
I wasn't sure whether or not these would fit my RGK Sub 4 but I was reassured by the fact that I could return them if they didn't.
They do fit the RGK mounting brackets and, although they are slightly shorter, they work perfectly for me. I might see if I can change the mounting bolts to take a larger allen key, but otherwise they're great.
Really effective and well made. Excellent product and the usual excellent service from Spokz.

First Class Product
Review
After reading good reviews of these brakes I decided to give them a go. I use them on my 15 year old Cyclone gym chair! It takes a lot of punishment and as I'm lifting and pushing some heavy weights I need to be anchored to the spot. These brakes do a top notch job and keep me in place, even when pulling on the 100kgs. Easy to fit, easy on and off, so couldn't be happier. I'll be buying another set soon to replace the plastic brakes on my everyday chair. Review by Paul B (Posted on 24/07/2021)
Great product - great customer service
Review
These brakes are far superior to the plastic ones, they are awesome, but even better than that was the customer service I had. I emailed and asked about delivery to France, the replies were prompt and helpful, they arrived in just 3 days! This shows the dedication of the staff and knowledge to understand how important the brakes are to a wheelchair user. I was so impressed, I even gave them a shout out on a SCI FB page and even on my own YouTube channel, that’s how impressed I was. Thanks Spokz ! Review by Freddo Smith (Posted on 29/04/2021)
Best Brakes Ever
Review
These brakes are by far the best I have had in the 15 years of being wheelchair dependant as a paraplegic.
They are really easy to fit and the marking's on the tube help get the same line up on both sides so it takes.the guess work out.of fixing position. They are also great to look at they don't scream cheep or generic.
The ease and softness that they lock on to the wheel is a big thumbs up and the great plus is that you can replace the spring in the unit when they were witch I'm sure will cut down on big payouts for new brakes in the future.
Once again spokz great product and awesome service

Great to have metal brakes with separate spring
Review
Finally, I've joined the movement to getting these Aluminium Scissor Brakes, after my composite ones have broken - they never lasted that long, but were good to use. Great that Spokz is selling these ones which combine the convenience with longevity. Review by Guy (Posted on 01/03/2021)
