|21”X3/4” Aluminum Anodized Hardcoat
These are the same style standard aluminum handrims used on wheelchairs for many years.
21”X3/4”Black Vinyl or Foam Coating
These are the same style standard 21"X3/4" handrims as above but covered with vinyl or foam to
increase friction with hands. The actual tube diameter is larger
than ¾” depending on the coating applied. The coating adds about 1/8” to ½”
of added overall width to the wheelchair.
21”X1” Black Vinyl or Foam Coating
The tubing of these coated handrims is about 3/8” - ½” larger
than the standard 21"X3/4" handrims shown above (depending on coating) and are for the user who needs a
larger tube diameter plus vinyl for grip reasons. The larger tubing diameter
and the vinyl coating will add about ½” to 1” overall width (depending
on coating) & added weight to the wheelchair.
21”X1” Aluminum Anodized Hardcoat
The tubing of these handrims is ¼” larger
than standard 21"X3/4" handrims and
are for the user who needs a larger tube diameter for grip reasons but does
not want the burn of vinyl. (The larger tubing diameter will add about ½”
overall width and slight added weight to the wheelchair.)
16”x1”Black Vinyl or Foam
These 1” tubing coated handrims are only
recommended for strong users with full hand strength and full upper
body function. They provide about 30-40% faster speed on flat surfaces than standard 21”handrims and
require fewer pushes to travel at
higher speeds. Please note that due to the smaller 16” diameter
handrim, when you initiate your first move at start, they are more
difficult to push and make the wheelchair feel heavier than standard handrims.. Because of the unique recessed carbon
fiber dish wheels on MAGICWHEELS® there is no added width to the wheelchair
compared to standard handrims. There is a slight
added weight due to the coating
Because of the unique design of MAGICWHEELS®,
2-gear wheels using handrim spokes, dual handrims are available and come in a variety of options to fit your pushing needs. One of the more common
configurations is the 21” x ¾” Anodized Aluminum outer
handrim with the 16” Black Vinyl (or Foam)
inner handrim, shown at left. (For additional dual handrim
choices see our Order form).
These dual handrims offer several
advantages over the single 21" handrims usually found on wheelchairs. By moving your hand from the outer
handrim to the inner handrim when rolling, the user has a 2nd (faster)
gear. There is also the advantage of using the vinyl on the
inner handrim while pushing then switching to the aluminum outer
handrim to avoid the burn of vinyl while stopping.
Double Handrims also provide your wheels
with 2 high gears and 2 low gears giving you a 4 speed wheelchair.
Vinyl or foam can also be ordered on the outer
handrim if the user has issues with the limited grip of aluminum.
