Suspension is needed in wheelchairs for the same reason as cars and bicycles: protect the rider from the pounding effects of rolling over rough terrain. Nearly all the vibration felt in a wheelchair originates from the front caster and independent studies conclude that FrogLegs suspension forks eliminate 76% of shock. FrogLegs' Softroll wheels feature unique super-resilient 100% urethane tread which absorbs additional shock and is smooth, quiet and clean. Softroll wheels mix a fast rolling, tight turning center with wide sloping sidewalls that ride higher on soft surfaces for easy pivot and roll. New Uni-Tine Forks were developed for low-profile chairs to allow users to upgrade to a wider wheelset better suited to handle multiple surfaces. Uni-Tine’s single prong is located toward the inside of the chair making it less likely to catch on debris turning the wheel sidewise.
