Find out about the revolutionary new wheelchair wheels that are lighter than ever! We have collaborated with Dutch Paralympic medalist Sharon Walraven to develop the lightest wheelchair wheels in the world, made out of magnesium.
The exremely light Magnesium Wheels significantly reduce the total weight of a wheelchair. The 24" wheels weigh just 525 grams per wheel (without handrim and tire). This light weight makes the use of the wheelchair less intensive and therefore it puts less of a strain on the muscles of the wheelchair user.
Sharon Walraven: "As a top athlete, I am constantly looking for the best means of tapping into my best performance. I developed these unique lightweight magnesium wheels together with my sponsor Mifa Aluminium BV. Because they're so light, they give me that extra edge, both on and off the court!
