Spartech’s Composite Wheels Put a New Spin on Wheelchair Style

Primary colours, combined with improved strength, are moving Spartech’s X-CORE three-spoke composite wheelchair wheels into the fast lane.

These elegant wheels, made of an advanced composite material are now available in four colours – Cobalt Blue, Razor Red, Triton Yellow and a special, limited-edition Pearl White celebrating the 10th anniversary of the X-CORE line.

“The wheelchair is an important part of a user’s life, and we are providing them with the most vibrant and lively colours we can for greater overall visual impact and individuality,” said Spartech Sales Engineer, Jon Mason. “The X-CORE wheel colours, introduced along with our enhanced materials improvements, allow for customization and superior performance.”

Spartech X-CORE SX three-spoke wheels have been re-engineered with key performance improvements. Spartech’s patented manufacturing process allows engineers to optimize the shock-absorbing qualities of the advanced composite compound controlling both vertical stiffness (ride comfort) and lateral stiffness (handling and cornering). Each spoke has been strengthened with an internal rib inside the spoke.
