Loopwheels Urban - Wheelchair Suspension Wheels (pair)
Go Comfortable, Go Anywhere
Loopwheels have developed a wheel with suspension that works at the higher speeds of a handbike or power attachment, for everyday use, whatever the surface
Weighing 2.87lb (1.36kg) per wheel (without push rim or tyre), and removing much more vibration than any other brand of a wheel, it is the only wheel you’ll need to conquer the urban jungle – or indeed, anywhere you choose to roll..
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 allow you to get the best comfort for your weight and the typical activities that you undertake. The rule of thumb is that the heavier you weigh and the faster you go, the stiffer the recommended spring rate. But in the end, it’s a personal choice! Some people just prefer a softer ride and others like a firmer suspension.
NOT RECOMMENDED FOR USE WITH SOLID TYRES
Options below are per pair, fitted to the wheel.
Now available with anodised metallic coloured hubs and rim hinges.

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.
LOOPWHEELS ARE NOT JUST A WHEEL, THEY'RE A SUSPENSION SYSTEM!
