Loopwheels Classic - Wheelchair Suspension Wheels (pair)
A wheel, but not as you know it...
Loopwheels are more comfortable than standard wheelchair wheels and tackle cobblestones & potholes with ease. The carbon composite springs absorb tiring vibration, bumps and shocks. This integral suspension is designed to help you push over uneven streets, rough tracks, grass and gravel paths, with less effort.
Loopwheels Classics are available in both 24" and 25" and will fit almost all manual, active wheelchairs using standard quick release axles. Available with both ½” (12.7mm) and 12mm diameter bearings to fit axles.
Loopwheels Classics are suitable for speeds of up to 7 km/h. They have not been tested for sitting in a moving vehicle: we recommend transferring into a vehicle seat. For comfort with a power attachment, choose our Loopwheels Urban or Loopwheels Extreme products.
Loopwheels are optimised for adults weighing over 55kg. If you weigh less than 50kg, you may not feel as much benefit from the suspension as someone heavier. Try the Loopwheels Urban with soft springs instead!
NOT RECOMMENDED FOR USE WITH SOLID TYRES
Options below are per pair, fitted to the wheel.

What is a Loopwheel?
A Loopwheel is a wheel with integral suspension, designed to reduce vibration and increase performance and provide greater comfort.
Loopwheels give you a smoother ride. They are more comfortable than standard wheels: the carbon springs absorb tiring vibration, as well as bumps and shocks. They’re designed for everyday use and are strong and durable. They don’t run as true as a spoked wheel, and you’ll notice more sideways movement, especially in the Loopwheels Classic, but they’re a lot more comfortable.
Loopwheels for wheelchairs help you push over uneven streets, rough tracks and gravel paths more easily, and the carbon springs can give you extra power to get up or down kerbs. They reduce jolting and vibration, by as much as two thirds compared with a spoked wheel. Some customers tell us this helps them manage discomfort.
How does the Loopwheel technology work?
Loopwheel springs are made from a carbon composite material, carefully developed and tested to give optimum compression and lateral stability as well as strength and durability. Specially-designed connectors attach the springs to the hub and rim.
The three loops in each wheel work together as a self-correcting system. This spring system between the hub and the rim of the wheel provides suspension that constantly adjusts to uneven terrain, cushioning the rider from bumps and potholes in the road. In effect, the hub floats within the rim, adjusting constantly as shocks from an uneven road hit the rim of the wheel.
The spring configuration allows the torque to be transferred smoothly between the hub and the rim.
