The Carbon Core WX2.5 from Topolino is the world's lightest wheelchair wheelset, weighing just 2.5 pounds. The WX2.5 is not only lightweight but also strong, durable and easier to push.
Strength and Durability
Topolino's wheels have a continuous Kevlar and carbon fiber spoke construction which reduces the spoke stress at the hub further reducing spoke breakage. The carbon fibers provide superior stiffness while the Kevlar adds tremendous toughness. The Kevlar/carbon fibers also significantly dampen road vibration more efficiently than standard steel spokes.
Ease of Use
The light weight of the WX2.5 makes it easier to transport and store the wheel. The wheel also rolls easier and smoother and therefore is easier to push. The reduced effort means increased mobility with reduced fatigue and stress on arms and shoulders.
Each Topolino wheel is hand crafted and tuned and gauged to ensure perfectly balanced tension. The spoke nipples are made of an ultra-strong 7075 T6 aluminum that is cold forged and anodized while the rims are made of a heat treated 6061 T6 aluminum and have a proprietary double walled design. The hubs are a patented CarbonCore composite while the spokes are a Kevlar and carbon fiber hybrid.
