Product Description

The lightest wheelchair wheels in the world. 23% Lighter than a Spinergy LX.

The tension-spoke wheel is a beautifully efficient structure. It is a very lightweight wheel, yet it can support tremendous loads (250lbs/17.5 stones or 113kgs).
Although the basic design has not changed much over the past century, we decided to use our knowledge of the latest composite materials and rethink the design, using these materials in a whole new way.

Taking advantage of today's materials...
For the spokes, we use a hybrid construction with Kevlar fibres alongside carbon fibres. The carbon fibres provide superior stiffness, while the Kevlar adds tremendous toughness.
This unique material is incredibly strong and fantastically light. Topolino's composite spoke material is stronger than a 14g stainless steel spoke and is only one-fifth the weight.

Sensible spoke count...
Since our spokes are so light, there is virtually no weight penalty for adding a few more. This allows us to use what we call a "sensible spoke count". We lace our wheelchair wheels with 20 spokes. As compared to a 12 spoke wheel, Topolino's 20 spokes result in far better stress distribution around the rim. We are able to use a much lighter rim for lower rotating inertia while, at the same time, building a stronger wheel.

Modular construction...
Topolino's unique spokes and hub are built as modular "wheel halves" that are laced to the rim in a conventional fashion. This means that, if a wheel does become damaged (in a crash, for instance), the individual parts are all replaceable using conventional tools and the wheel may be easily rebuilt to live again.
