Want to give your row wheeling muscles a little break? Maybe a particular obstacle is more easily overcome pushing your chair or you want to go farther faster using our unique row-push technique. With REV wheels on your chair, you have the option to push if needed. We designed our wheels to allow for the tire sidewalls to be available to push off of. To enhance this option, both our standard and upgrade Schwalbe™ tires use 2grip™ sidewall technology.
In order to engage Rowheels' drive system, the torque arm (shown above) pin needs to be engaged and locked into our universal clamp, which fits on most popular wheelchair frames. all the user has to do is push the quick release button on the hub, slide the axle into the chair receiver, and pull on the hand rim until they hear a "click" from each wheel. that sounds means they are locked in and ready to go!
EASY ON THE HANDS
Unlike standard spoked wheels, where mounting and removing requires grabbing the spokes, Rowheels' designers incorporated a specially designed “tri-handle” that allows the user to comfortably grab hold and push the quick release button.
EASY ON THE WRISTS
All REV wheels come with optional oval handrims, which have been shown to reduce hand and wrist pain in manual wheelchair users. for users with reduced or no grip, we also offer Q-grip and RibGrip handrims.
REV wheels are engineered and tested using aerospace standards and are made with advanced materials and components in an effort to produce a product that is reliable, durable and seamlessly functional.
DESIGNED TO BE RIGID WHEN PULLING AND COMPLIANT WHEN BRAKING, THE TRI-SPOKE HUB IS MADE USING A HIGH STRENGTH GLASS FIBER COMPOSITE.
tHE WHEEL HUB/HOUSING IS MADE FROM A MAGNESIUM ALLOY (REV-LX) USED IN THE AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY AND AEROSPACE GRADE ALUMINUM (REV-HX) THAT ARE STRONG, ULTRA LIGHT WEIGHT.
OUR GEARS ARE MADE USING A UNIQUE ENGINEERING POLYMER THAT ALLOWS FOR PRECISION COMPONENTS WITH A REMARKABLE COMBINATION OF STRENGTH, STIFFNESS, AND LOW WEAR WHILE BEING SIX TIMES LIGHTER THAN STEEL GEARS.
OUR STEEL COMPONENTS ARE PRECIPITATION HARDENED AND HEAT-TREATED, RESULTING IN EXTREMELY STRONG AND RELIABLE PARTS.
