Details

Simple and Elegant: The Surge with Gription push rims.

The gription strip is a rubber strip that goes all the way around the top surface of the oval handrim. It is a high friction strip that provides a grippier propulsion surface. The grippier surface is particularly helpful when going up ramps, hills, or when traversing difficult surfaces. The remaing surfaces of the oval (the side surfaces) are hard anodised in black to provide a smooth braking surface.

Both the Surge and the Surge LT are the same all-in-one oval with Gription Strip. The only difference between the two is the size and weight of the oval. The surge uses a larger profileoval that is 1 1/2" long (top to bottom) and weighs 567 grams. The Surge LT uses a smaller profile oval(a smaller gripping surface for smaller hands) of 1 1/8" and it weighs less at 454 grams

The Surge will not add any width to your chair and is a stylish looking accessory.

    Grip wears out quickly
    Review
    They are great initially but the rubber grip wore smooth very quickly and need completely new hand rims now as they are the wrong shape to put a rubber grip cover over Review by Mac (Posted on 17/11/2019)
    Great product
    Review
    We have these rims for 5 years on my wife's wheelchair (the one with rubber strip). Very happy initially and still very happy. Grip is excellent. Aluminium is high quality, we are very careful not to touch objects and risk of damage. If aluminium gets damaged, that rarely causes sharp parts. Only very occasionally you need to file a sharp burr away. Review by Frank (Posted on 16/10/2019)
    Not good in hot weather
    Review
    İ got 2 sets of these fitted to my Spinergy Blades, (red blades on one pair, blue on the other pair), look absolutely fantastic, but as İ live in a hot country, today temperatures is in high 40oC you can not use them unless you wear gloves, they heat up to an extremely dangerous temperature, especially the rubber strip. Contacted the manufacturers but they did not care. Great for making your wheels look fantastic but no good to use. Review by Alan (Posted on 13/08/2019)
    Braking is an issue
    Review
    great for driving on the flat and up hills, down hill not so much. Friction free braking means no braking and the gription strip burns a lot, ouch. Still nice to push in day to day situations, still to see if the profile helps my carpal tunnel and hey they look cool Review by sean (Posted on 22/07/2019)
    Fine if you live somewhere flat
    Review
    These are great if you have difficulty pushing and your hands sometimes decide not to work well, as the shape and grippy strip really helped with propulsion. But I live in a fairy hilly area and that is a big problem. The sides of the rims are so smooth that they just slip through your hands and you don't slow down. Instead you're forced to break by using the grippy strip on top which ends up burning your hands. I changed to a different rim in the end. Review by Niall (Posted on 28/05/2019)
    Not cost effective

    I originally rated this 5 stars. And really rated these rims. They are really amazing when brand new. Made a huge difference and gave me a level of independence back i had forgotten existed. But just 3 months on and the gription strip has worn away and no longer exists on most of the rims so they are barely useable and i'm back to square one. without the strip the rims are very slippy and it's very difficult to grip them especially when wet. for £260 for a pair that is just not good enough really in my eyes. REALLY dissapointed and absolutely gutted. The fact that you can't replace the grip i understood but i expected to get much longer than that out of them ! Review by Wendy (Posted on 24/06/2018)
    huge difference!

    Made a massive difference ! I was struggling with grip issues and pain in hands losing traction on normal rims, had tried many "hacks" and push on covers that just moved around and didn't really help! The surge have been amazing ! really easy to grip using less strength in my hands to propel but comfortable enough on the bottom of the rim to control and steer and slow down. Really worth the investment. Review by Wendy (Posted on 28/03/2018)
