Overview of the REV1 Wheels - Pair
The new REV1 Wheels by RoWheels feature a unique, ‘row wheel’ construction packed into a sleek, high-end design. The pull-back propulsion combined with the counter-motion construction ensure reduced strain and repetitive injuries, increased velocity without the higher stroke count and increased posture and muscle engagement.
What Makes It Different
The REV1 Wheels’ design allows the user to pull the wheels to propel forward, unlike typical wheelchair wheels. This ‘row wheel’ construction alleviates the strain that a typical wheelchair user would experience in their chair, such as the impact to your wrists, shoulders, elbows and repetitive stress injuries that can occur from daily use in your wheelchair. The pull-based REV1 Wheel design engages a larger muscle group, which helps build the proper endurance; ensuring those repetitive stress injuries do not occur in a high frequency.
The REV1 Wheels feature four tires: the Schwalbe RightRun tires, Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires, Kenda Nevegal tires, and SHOX Solid Wheelchair Tires. The RightRun tires come with a puncture protection layer, hand-friendly 2Grip side walls, and a non-marking tread center. The Marathon Plus tires are puncture-proof pneumatic tires that feature improved rolling resistance and hand-friendly 2Grip side walls. The SHOW Solid Wheelchair Tires have an airless construction that is equivalent to 110psi, alleviating your worry of punctures and tire damage. The Kenda Nevegal is the optimal tire for an assortment of ever-changing terrain. It is highly adaptable and excels under various conditions.
Why We Like It
The unique, muscle-building design of the REV1 Wheels helps reduce the energy you exert while on the go by reducing your stroke count and increasing the responsiveness to your turns, braking and speed. This increase in responsiveness uses a counter-motion construction, where the handrims push into the wheels, providing a quicker response when making tight turns or braking. The counter-motion greatly reduces and eliminates the gripping force you use with a typical wheelchair wheel. The pull-back method of propulsion helps maintain better posture while in your wheelchair, which adds to the overall alleviation of stress and injury.
The REV1 Wheels put high-end features into a stylish, streamlined design. The futuristic look of the REV1 Wheels, with your choice of black or red accents, is sure to make you stand out.

View Detailed Measurement Guide
- Seat Depth1
- Measure from the most posterior point of the body to the inside of the knee, minus at least two inches. Some prefer more leg overhang to make room for their hand when lifting their leg.
- Back Height2
- Measured from the seat base to the top of the wheelchair back. Depends on how much upper back support is needed, and also affects freedom for the upper body to rotate.
- Rear Seat to Floor3
- Measurement from the ground to the rear seat edge. Relative to the front seat-to-floor dimension, this determines the rearward slope ("dump" or "squeeze") of the wheelchair seat.
- Hanger Angle4
- Determines how far the toes extend away from the body, measured from the horizontal. A tighter angle allows the wheelchair to turn around in less space. Depends in part on ability of the knee to bend towards the perpendicular.
- Seat Width5
- Determined by the widest point of the body from knee to hip, plus an inch to ensure room to move. Consider bulk of clothing, particularly a heavy winter coat, if relevant.
- Wheel Camber6
- Angle of the wheel relative to the vertical. More camber improves stability and agility, but also limits ability to pass through narrow spaces. A typical daily wheelchair uses three degrees of camber.
- Front Seat to Floor7
- Measure the leg from the back of the knee to the sole of the foot. Then subtract the thickness of the cushion when it is compressed. Next, add a minimum of two inches for footrest clearance. Do not add the footrest clearance if the wheelchair will be foot-propelled.
- Footrest Width8
- Measure from the inside of each legrest tubing the distance or desired distance between legrests.
- Center of Gravity9
- Measure from the front of the seat back post to the center of the rear axel.
- Seat to Footrest Length10
- Measure from the edge of the seat upholstery to the top rear of the footrest.
- Backrest Angle11
- Measure the the angle of the back post to the floor. Ninety degrees will be perpendicular to the floor, to approximate the angle from the back post to the seat, subtract two degrees from measurment for every .5" of dump.
