FAQ

Is moisture, mud, snow or water a problem for the handrims?

Due to the alignment of the wood fibers as well as to the laminar structure, such daily requirements are no problem for our handrims. This results in a homogeneous rim cross-section that remains dimensionally stable even in direct contact with water. In addition, our products are also surface-treated to protect them even better from moisture and dirt.

Can one injure oneself with wood splinters at the wooden handrims?

Due to the laminar structure and the use of ash wood, there occur no wood splinters or injuries caused by them.

How do I clean the wooden handrims?

The surface of the wooden handrims is treated with natural oils, therefore it can be cleaned with soapy water. Under no circumstances should they be cleaned with solvents and aggressive corrosive agents.

How stable are the wooden handrims?

Due to the laminar structure they are extremely stable and do not deform. They are equal in quality to aluminium  or titanium handrims.

How do the handrims behave when going fast downhill?

Due to the low thermal conductivity of the wood, the heat can not be dissipated so well when driving fast downhill and the fingers are thus slightly warmer than with ordinary handrims.

Do you ship worldwide?

Yes, of course! We will ship your unique wooden handrims to your door.

How do I find the right size?

The wooden handrims can be easily mounted to existing wheelchair rims. To find out the standard size of your wheelchair,  look up your proper handrim size in our data sheet (download see below).
