WHAT WHEEL SIZES ARE THE ROWHEELS REV WHEELS AVAILABLE IN?
REV wheels will be available in the four most common sizes which are 26" (590 mm), 25" (559 mm), 24" (540 mm) and 22" (501 mm).
WILL REV WHEELS ADD WIDTH TO MY CHAIR?
Currently, REV wheels will add between 1.5" and 2" TOTAL width to your chair.
DO REV WHEELS COME IN DIFFERENT COLORS?
Currently REV wheels are available with white, black and red hubs but we also offer custom design options.
HOW MUCH WEIGHT WILL ROWHEELS REV WHEELS ADD TO MY CHAIR?
Each Rowheel® REV-HX wheel will add about 2pounds of weight relative to a standard 32 steel spoke wheel and because you are using stronger muscles more efficiently, you probably will not notice the difference.
CAN I CAMBER ROWHEELS' REV WHEELS?
Yes. Currently Rowheels can be cambered up to 4 degrees. We are also looking into the possibility of future versions of Rowheels with higher degreed cambers that could be used for wheelchair sports.
WHO CAN USE ROWHEELS?
The rule of thumb for determining whether a user can maneuver a Rowheels-equipped wheelchair is as follows:
►If you can go backwards on a standard manual chair, you are a likely candidate for using Rowheels.
►If have limited trunk control, proper set-up of your chair will be required. This will include moving your hips slightly forward for stability and making sure you are sitting comfortably in your chair and can touch the center of your wheels with your fingers
CAN I PERFORM A CURB JUMP WITH ROWHEELS?
Rowheels' functionality is similar to that of push wheels in that once a user adapts to the rowing/pulling propulsion method, he/she should be able to perform the same maneuvers possible with push propulsion. With sufficient practice, advanced skills such as curb jumping can be performed using the REV-HX wheels. Curb Jumps should be attempted with anti-tippers at all times, in the presence of a spotter and only after sufficient practice. Watch our demonstrative video:
