X-CoreTM: 20ʺ 5-Spoke Carbon Fiber Wheel for Wheelchairs
The 5-spoke X-CoreTM carbon fiber wheel manufactured by Custom Engineered Wheels Inc. (CEW) provides limitless possibilities. These wheels used for wheelchairs provide impeccable performance and design features. The 20” (451 mm) 5-Spoke wheel features a new hub design with a radii hub improving overall appearance of the wheel.
Material Used to Manufacture Carbon Fiber Wheels
The material used to manufacture this wheel is far superior to the generic carbon fiber material. The process of lost core molding is used to manufacture these wheels in a single piece.
A fiber reinforced composite known as ‘Enduro II’ is used. This material is a glass fiber reinforced material, which is heavier but less expensive than carbon fiber. It provides the durability and strength of carbon fiber without the added cost. The materials used are at least three times stronger than steel and aluminum making it long lasting and resistant to wear and tear.
The unsurpassed performance, low maintenance, and ease of cleaning of these wheels have made them the preferred option for all types of wheelchairs. Thanks to X-CORE™ wheel technology, every curve, arc and angle come together to maximize ride ‘feel’, strength, and endurance attributes.
