If you use 24" tires on our wheelchair you can easily swap them out with these Easy-Switch Off-Road Wheelchair Wheels without having to adjust your breaks.
These wheels use hubs, spokes, and rims made by Spinergy. The tires are Kenda Nevegals and the axles are Titanium for your more aggressive users.
These wheels are modeled after a pair of wheels I made for my son for Baseball a number of years ago. I did not what to have to adjust brakes all of the time so I used 22" rims with a Kenda Nevegal off-road tire. Once I adjusted the breaks the first time with both sets of wheels on I have not had to adjust them again. Since 24" wheelchair wheels are the most common size wheelchair wheel, it makes sense to have a swappable off-road wheel.
Let's talk front casters for a second. It makes sense to pair this rear wheel with a wider front caster. My son uses a 6" x 1.4" front caster with both his 24x1 wheels and his Easy-Switch Off-Road wheels. With the larger front caster, it is easy for him to navigate across cracks in the sidewalk or grass on the baseball diamond. If you are running small thin front casters, trying to go off-road may be very hard. We would suggest having 1.4" wide front caster.
This wheel would also pair nicely if you have a FreeWheel Wheelchair Attachment. You could go over some very aggressive terrain with these off-road wheels and a FreeWheel
