Softwheel V3 Wheelchair Suspension Wheels (pair)
SoftWheel's innovative suspension system transforms a rider's wheelchair experience! SoftWheel can help reduce pain and provide a more comfortable ride, giving you the freedom to go where you want.
Go where you’ve never thought possible with the unique In-Wheel Suspension. The suspension arms absorb more impact than traditionaly suspended wheels. The shocks remain perfectly rigid over flat terrain, yet offer unparalleled cushioning to on bumpy pavement or off-road, to go up or down curbs and travel further.
- Advanced FULL suspension technology that handles any obstacle / terrain.
- Reduces vibrations and increases overall comfort.
- Offers 360º suspension that activates no matter the angle of impact.
- Slimmer rim that reduces overall weight – only 1.8k.
- Uses standard quick release axle pins compatible with most wheelchairs.
- Silent suspension mechanism.
- Offers you the freedom to reach places not previously possible.
- PRICE IS FOR A PAIR OF WHEELS WITHOUT TYRES OR PUSH RIMS

Technology that's driving the future of transportation
At the center of SoftWheel's technology is an innovative in-wheel suspension system that improves a vehicle's performance. The patented technology can be adapted to several personal mobility applications, providing unique benefits for each.
Softwheel technology is currently driving innovation in the automotive, bicycle, and wheelchair sectors.
SoftWheel’s innovative in-wheel suspension technology can help reduce pain and provide a more comfortable ride.
How do SoftWheels work?
In-Wheel Suspension: 3 suspension arms are built inside the wheel and compress to absorb shocks
Rigid Rim: Wheel rim is always rigid & strong, while the suspension arms & hub compress to provide shock absorption
Automatic Actuation: Suspension arms automatically compress when encountering an obstacle or rough terrain, and remain rigid & strong over flat surfaces
360° Suspension: Arms are set equidistant around a central hub to provide shock absorption - no matter the angle of impact
Rapid Shock Reset: Suspension arms immediately reset and return the wheelchair – and rider, to a level ride
Shock Absorption That Actuates Only When You Need it
The wheel rim always remains rigid, while the suspension arms & hub shift to provide shock absorption only when needed – when encountering an obstacle or rough terrain. This leads to a smoother, more efficient ride over all types of terrain.
Regular Wheel vs. SoftWheel
Going down curbs with SoftWheel
Whole body vibrations are a health concern for wheelchair riders
Long-term exposure to vibrations has been demonstrated to have a negative impact on people’s health & comfort
SoftWheels Can help reduce back & neck pain, and decrease fatigue at the end of the day
Fewer vibrations are therefore transmitted to the rider, leading to a smoother, more comfortable ride.
SoftWheels keep the rider steady while going over bumps and remains stable & rigid over flat terrain
SoftWheels are more energy efficient, helping to maintain forward momentum, which can reduce fatigue.
SoftWheels absorb shock & vibrations on all types of terrain, providing maximum cushioning
SoftWheel Reduces Vibrations
The innovative suspension & damping technology disperses the impact energy, thereby shortening the impact duration and shock magnitudes transferred to the rider. Fewer vibrations are therefore transmitted to the rider, leading to a smoother, more comfortable ride. SoftWheels are more energy efficient, helping to maintain forward momentum, which can reduce fatigue.
Drop Test from 15 cm (standard curb height). SoftWheel vs. Standard Rigid Wheel: Acceleration Over Time
Regular Wheel vs. SoftWheel
In a drop test in the lab, wheels were outfitted with a 50 kg weight and dropped from the height of a standard curb (15 cm). See the difference in performance between a standard wheel and SoftWheel.
