Bicycle Wheels With Integral Suspension – The Loopwheels

A vibration reducing wheel with integral suspension. Loopwheels minimise vibration, reduce fatigue and pain and give you a smoother ride – allowing you to travel further and longer.

Loopwheels are a brand-new ‘pat pending’ 20″ bicycle wheel with integral suspension. A spring system between the hub and the rim of the wheel provides suspension, cushioning the rider from bumps and potholes in the road.

Loopwheels have a conventional hub with a hub brake and hub gears. But the spokes are replaced by a spring system. This gives an amazingly smooth, comfortable ride compared with a conventional spoked wheel.

Front and rear loopwheels have different spring rates. The rear is roughly twice as stiff as the front wheel. A front and rear loopwheel can be used together as a set, or you can use a single loopwheel alongside a conventional spoked wheel. Loopwheels provide suspension on a bike which has none, or can be fitted in addition to suspension forks to give a smoother, more comfortable ride.
