Go faster, roll further
Spokz has teamed up with WheelchairBearings® in the USA to bring you tools and bearings specifically designed for the wheelchair market.
Manufacturers suggest you service your wheelchair at least once a year. Your wheelchair, if not properly maintained, can cause long-term damage to your body over time. Putting new bearings in your wheelchair and properly maintaining them is something you can do at home and will greatly reduce wear and tear on your body and allow you to go faster and roll further. More zoom less squeak!
The Tech Stuff....
The original equipment manufacturer's (OEM) bearings are not necessarily the best or longest lasting bearings out there. However, you will not go wrong using OEM bearings. Just know that there are better bearings out there.
Bearings should be round. Most bearing manufacturers will use ABEC scale for measuring roundness. It is a little counter-intuitive, ABEC 1 is less round then ABEC 3. The higher the number the more round the ball. The scale is ABEC 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9. Some people advertise ABEC 11 but we can't currently find any literature to support it. Most OEMs use an ABEC 3 and some even use ABEC 1.
ABEC 3 or ABEC 5 bearings are fine, you don't need to go any higher unless you are going for a land speed record!
Used on the following wheelchair products:
- TiLite Wheelchairs Front Casters (Tilite Part No.HD100516)
- LiteSpeed Billet Aluminum Wheels
- Plastic front casters with 3/8” axle
Reasons To Upgrade....
- Most wheelchair bearings are not designed for performance usage.
- Most wheelchair bearings are not designed to maintain smoothness over the longest period of time.
- Most wheelchair bearings are not designed to be serviced easily.
- Most wheelchair bearings do not use the highest grade materials.
