Weighing under 3lbs (1.33kg) per wheel, and removing much more vibration than any other brand of a wheel, it is the definitive wheel if you love travelling faster on tracks and off-road.
This 507 wheel takes a larger, MTB style tyre, to bring the whole wheel with tyre to 24″. Black Jack tyres available as well as Marathon Plus, on request.
Extra Stability, Extra Speed, Extra Freedom
Loopwheels have developed a robust wheel with world-class suspension that works at higher speeds, for off-road use with a MTB tire and power attachments.
Weighing 2.87lb (1.3kg) per wheel, 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

Why choose these wheels?
Loopwheels reduce vibrations by up to 70% compared with metal spoked wheels. Our innovative Loopwheel technology now comes with 12% extra hi tech carbon.
This extra carbon creates a slightly stiffer spring. It’s easier to get around and turn at speed, which means a more comfortable and more stable ride, especially if travelling and cornering at speed.
Because of the integral suspension, Loopwheels are more comfortable than standard wheelchair wheels. They absorb tiring vibration, bumps and shocks.
Loopwheels fit most manual wheelchairs using standard quick release axles. Choose between 24″ and 25″ diameter wheels, with or without Schwalbe Marathon Plus pneumatic tyres. These wheels have a standard axle bearing diameter of ½” (12.7mm). If you need a 12mm axle bearing instead of ½” then please contact us.
Loopwheels are optimised for adults. If you weigh less than 50kg, you won’t feel as much benefit from the suspension as someone heavier.
Push rim options
Loopwheels come ready fitted with black aluminium push rims, included in the price. We also offer alternative upgrade options:
Curve & Curve L are a high quality, ergonomic push rim designed and made in Germany. These are available in two sizes: ‘Curve L’ for a larger hand, or ‘Curve’ for smaller hands. Designed for wheelchair users with complete hand function.
Curve Tetra Grip & Curve Tetra Grip L push rims have the same ergonomic shape as the ‘Curve/Curve L’ but in addition are rubber coated for greater grip. Designed for tetraplegics with triceps function and for wheelchair users with complete hand function but little hand strength.
Gekko are designed for wheelchair users with complete hand function and complete or limited hand strength. Our best selling ergonomic push rim.
Clear anodised aluminium push rims are available on request for 24″.
