ENHANCED

BRAKING

The  REV wheels have an assisted braking system that takes advantage of the counter rotation between the hand rim and wheel.  Simply push into the handrim towards your body to engage the brake pads against the wheel rim braking surface.

PUSHING IS OPTIONAL

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.

EASY  LATCH ENGAGEMENT

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!

ERGONOMIC

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.

 

UNCOMPROMISING DESIGN

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.
