How it works

Gear-switching takes place by turning the gear-shifter located on the outside of each wheel. The only equipment that needs to be mounted on the wheelchair is a bracket and the option to switch to standard wheels remains if necessary. 

GEARWHEELs wheel have three positions.
-1:1 (traditional)
-Downshifted
-Downshifted with hill hold.

The downshifting gives around 40% more power.

We are constantly developing our adapters to suit current wheelchair models. Contact Gearwheel for current adapters.
