AYL Treasure Hunt – Loopwheels

Jul 20, 2020

* This post is kindly sponsored by Loopwheels, but all opinions are my own. *

Like many events, the coronavirus outbreak resulted in Naidex 2020 being rescheduled to September 15th and 16th 2021. But until then, we will be sharing a new blog post every week with information on the AYL Treasure Hunt!

This exclusive activity involves working with 17 trusted exhibitors to provide attendees with the opportunity to discover and visit stands they otherwise might not have known about. You will have to wait until nearer the time to learn how you can take part, but for now, I am proud to introduce the third exhibitor - Loopwheels!

Loopwheels specialise in the design and production of wheelchair wheels with integrated suspension. Instead of using standard spokes, the 3 loops create a self-correcting system. Meanwhile, the spring system between the hub and the rim of the wheel is constantly adjusting to uneven surfaces, cushioning the user from bumps and reducing vibrations by 70%. In simple terms - the wheel hub floats within the rim so that it can constantly adjust as shocks from an uneven surface hit the rim of the wheel. Other benefits include:

● Increased Comfort

● Creates Smoother Ride

●  Reduces Pain & Fatigue

●  Ability To Go Further & Faster

● Softens Impact When Bumping Down Kerbs & Other Drops

The product range includes a standard model, which comes in a variety of colour options to suit your personal preferences; the new urban model, which delivers the same qualities through an even lighter design; and the extreme model, which have a mountain bike tyre tire making them suitable for off-road use. If you are unsure which model best suits your individual needs, or perhaps you can't decide whether you would benefit from using Loopwheels - the company offer a ‘try before you buy’ scheme which allows you to test the effectiveness of the product for yourself over a 14 day period before committing to a purchase!

With every wheel being made in Britain, Loopwheels a proud manufacturer of world-class innovation in wheel technology. Because of this, the company has been nominated for several awards, including placing as a finalist in the ISPO BRANDNEW business awards 2014/15, and as a finalist in the Nottinghamshire Best Business Awards 2013!
