QUICK AND RESPONSIVE. PROTECTS THE SHOULDERS FROM INJURY.

RESPONSIVE-blk

REV-HX wheels are the fastest manual wheelchair wheels on the market. Using rowheels patented hub, REV-HX wheels turn 30% faster than the handrim. This resulted in an extremely responsive and quick set of wheels. From popping a wheelie to turning, HX wheels do it quickly!

BENEFITS_INTRO_circle

REV-HX wheels use Rowheels’ patented reverse propulsion system which allows users to benefit from the biomechanics involved in PULL propulsion (rowheeling), proven to eliminate forces that lead to shoulder-related injury and pain (common to +50% of wheelchair users) and uses up to 4X as many muscles as pushing; (most of which are underused in pushing but larger and more capable muscles in your upper back and shoulders) resulting in a more stable and health shoulder joint.

Whether you are an athlete looking to train and exercise or a wheelchair user looking to relieve shoulder pain, improved posture, gain stamina and upper body strength, the REV-HX is the answer. With HX wheels you can achieve this without worrying about compromising or damaging your shoulders like you would using standard push wheels.

ASSISTED BRAKING

HX wheels  comes with Rowheels’ unique braking system. Simply push the handrim towards your body to engage the brake pads against the wheel rim braking surface.

 

CROSS-TRAINING

Research studies have shown that rowing/pull propulsion are vital sports training tools for strengthening shoulder & back muscles to prevent injury and improve cardiovascular output. HX wheels protect your shoulders so  you can train/exercise without worrying about push-related injuries.

WHEELCHAIR COMPATIBLE

 HX wheels are compatible with most models of ultralightweight wheelchairs including those from Quickie, TiLite, Invacare/Top End, Colours and Ki Mobility.

 

CUSTOMIZABLE

HX wheels are available in 22″, 24″, 25″ and 26″ wheels sizes and users will be able to choose between a variety of popular  tires, handrims and hub cap colors. Custom hydrographics are available upon request.
