    Carbon fiber wheels



    I found these carbon wheels in a Japanese website while surfing and became interested of trying to get a pair. They are kinda like the carbon fiber bike wheels that Spinergy makes, but this one is made for wheelchairs. Only thing I know is that the brand is OX Engineering, model number is HHR3, they also make a 4 spoke version which is HHR4, available in 24" and 25", and that they also make sports wheelchairs too(pretty cool looking chairs). Too bad their website is all Japanse so no idea how to get a pair. I searched all over the web for english distributors but found nothing. Does anyone have any info on these wheels, english distributors, websites, etc...? I used the google translater to tranaslate the page to English but that dosnt help much. I e-mailed this company already but hopefully they understand English.

    Heres a direct link to the wheel page in that website.

    Thanks.

    I actually saw the 4 cross type a few months ago. I was in Hawaii and saw those awesome wheels on a Japanese tourist’s chair. Unfortunately the kid could'nt understand English, and I’m lost when it comes to Japanese, so I didn’t get too much info about them. The wheels are very sharp in person

    Guess you can only get these from Japan. Racer said his Japanese colleague got it for him from Japan. Gonna try to ask my Japanese friend to find out for me how to get them.

    No it's good carbon fiber wheels, all racing wheelchairs have. no vibration and no distortion over time.Light but expensive
