Thread: 4" x 1.4" Frog Leg Epic Soft Roll Wheelchair Casters

  1. #1

    4" x 1.4" Frog Leg Epic Soft Roll Wheelchair Casters

    anybody know if these will work on a series 1 zra or no?

    i'm guessing no but just need expert confirmation.

    if no, has anybody ever bought this brand? are they pretty good or a waste of my cashola?

    rollin64, I put a pair of Unitines ($85/pair from Sportaid) and 4" x 1.4" FL soft rolls on my series 1 ZRa, and it took me about 40 minutes to swap the forks and 5 minutes to put on the new casters. Very easy modification, and I strongly recommend it!

    I put a set of 5x1.4 FL Epic SR casters in my AeroZ's standard forks - perfect fit.

    That website are not the casters of the tittle of the thread, they are 4x1" and your are looking for 4x1.4" softroll casters are this ones http://www.sportaid.com/4-frog-legs-...re-colors.html imo the best casters of the market for ultralight wheelchair and active guys, you`ve got them with plastic or aluminium hub, will fit no problem, but maybe you will need new spacers.

    yea toto, i know the 4x1's on the website would fit. was just wondering if anybody ever tried that kind.

    so you think the 4x1 1/4 will fit a zra series 1 with smaller spacers?

    i'm trying to get out as cheap as possible with some 4" softrolls. i have 5x1,s on there now but i want to lower the front of my chair.

    thanks donno, i didn't know the unitines were that cheap.

    also, lol. has anybody seen or used these? or are they the regular hard rolling kind?

    i would have to get the unitines or froglegs for the 4 x 1 1/4 to work. i've got exactly 4 1/4 between my zra 1 forks.

    nobody ever tried the "SHOX COMFORT CASTERS 4x1" shown above?

    I just got a pair of 5x1.4 frog legs for my ZRA Series 2 with the slipstream forks and the R6 bearings. Big improvement over the 1 inch casters from TiLite.

    ....
    I don`t think it, they fit as you can see in the pic posted by SCI_OTR, that is a series 1 with std forks and 4x1.4" softroll casters, probably yo`ve got the forks with three holes, will be better for adjust it.

    do the 4.5 or 4 1/4 softrolls have much turning resistance since they're kinda wide?

    and donno....was it much hassle to put the unitines on your chair?

    Turning is a breeze, and the casters are like little shock absorbers. Changing the forks was pretty easy, I just made sure that Sport aid had all of the correct information when I ordered the Unitines.
