Choosing the right material and size for your rollator’s wheels can make a significant difference in your mobility and safety.

Pneumatic wheels, like those used on the Carbon Overland, are ideal for off-road adventures and rough terrain, as they can absorb most shocks and provide excellent traction.

On the other hand, the PUR wheels used on the Carbon Ultralight and Nordic Pioneer are perfect for everyday use, offering a smooth ride on most surfaces and being very durable. However, the structure of the two rollator’s wheels are a bit different with the Nordic Pioneer’s wheels being bigger and softer. 

For our indoor rollator the Scandinavian Butler a TPE material is used. These wheels provide a smooth and quiet ride on indoor surfaces, reducing the risk of slipping and increasing stability.

Why we don’t use plastic wheels

 

At byACRE, we have made a conscious decision to avoid using plastic wheels for our rollator walkers. While plastic wheels are commonly used for most rollators, they have several disadvantages.

Plastic wheels are often less durable than other materials and can crack or break over time. They are also often noisy and provide a rough ride, making them uncomfortable for the user.

Additionally, plastic wheels may not have good traction and can be prone to slipping on slick surfaces. Therefore, we have chosen to prioritize the quality and comfort of our rollators by using PUR, and pneumatic wheels.

FAQ
What is the difference between 3 and 4 wheeled rollators?

Differences between 3 and 4 wheeled rollators lie in their stability and maneuverability. 4 wheeled rollators provide more stability, balance and control making it easier to navigate uneven terrain and turn corners.

Will the Carbon Overland’s air wheels be in danger of a puncture?

The high-quality tires and tubes of the Carbon Overland are designed to make punctures a rare event, so you can confidently go on your adventures without worrying about tire issues.

Why is it important to have great wheels on your rollator?

It’s important to have great wheels on your rollator because they determine the terrain your rollator can handle and how comfortable it will be. Low-quality wheels can cause discomfort and pain, while high-quality wheels designed for smooth rolling provide a more enjoyable ride, reducing fatigue and promoting better overall health.

What is the importance of good driving ability for a rollator?

Good driving ability in a rollator is crucial as it enables easier navigation and control, promoting balance and preventing falls. It also conserves energy and reduces fatigue, allowing for greater independence and confidence in daily activities.

What are PUR wheels?

PUR wheels are made of a solid polyurethane material. These wheels are highly durable and can withstand wear and tear, making them ideal for rollators that are used frequently or on rough surfaces. They also offer a smooth ride and are easy to maintain, as they do not require inflation like pneumatic tires.

What are pneumatic wheels?

Pneumatic wheels are wheels that have an inner tube filled with air, similar to the tires on a bicycle or car. The air-filled tube provides cushioning and absorbs shock, resulting in a smoother ride. Pneumatic wheels are perfect for outdoor rollators, as they are able to handle rough terrain such as gravel, grass, and uneven surfaces. They are also known for their excellent traction and ability to maintain stability on bumpy surfaces. However, they do require a bit more maintenance than PUR wheels, as they need to be kept inflated to the proper pressure.
