6 x 1.4 in. Frog Legs AGOG Soft Roll Composite Wheelchair Caster-pr
DISCONTINUED BY THE MANUFACTURER
The 6 x 1.4 in. Frog Legs AGOG Soft Roll Composite Wheelchair Caster features a wide sloping sidewall tire giving excellent directional control. The solid urethane tire will never go flat and the user will never have to fill the tire with air.
6 x 1.4 in. Frog Legs AGOG Soft Roll Composite Wheelchair Caster Benefits
Wide Sloping Sidewall Tire: Our arced tread design ensures the area contacting the ground is spherical. A ball-shaped tire will pivot and roll much easier than a straight edge that gets caught. The extra girth distributes the downward pressure so the wheel maintains higher flotation and does not sink into carpet and other surfaces.
Custom High Resilient Urethane Tread: Other "polyurethane" treads contain recycled material or are infused with water creating a "foam". Frog Legs treads are spun-cast from virgin base chemicals. Use of recycled materials results in harder tread with minimal rebound. A foam contains microscopic air bubbles which absorb moisture. Moisture can increase weight up to 25% and reduce rolling efficiency significantly.
Highly Resilient: Like a super ball our tread bounces back when compressed to minimize energy loss and absorb vibration.
Improved Mobility: Case in Point: The Scooting Rock: A hard wheel will push a loose rock toward the center where it wedges and turns the wheel sideways. The EPIC wheel will absorb part of the rock, holding it in place and rolling over it. Studies prove our wide wheels traverse 21% more obstacles.
Clean, Quiet & Smooth: AGOG solid urethane will not absorb water so there is no dirty water tracked inside. The high-resilient material eliminates the "ticking" sound from tile.
5 Straight Spoke Hub: This 5 straight-spoke caster is a cost-effective alternative to the original Frog Legs world-class aluminium billet hub. Engineered of Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) material which provides dimensional stability that other composites only dream of. This innovative hub is designed to minimize shrinkage during material curing to produce the most balanced composite wheel available.
6 x 1.4 in. Frog Legs AGOG Soft Roll Composite Wheelchair Caster Fitment Notes
This wheelchair caster assembly will fit a wide variety of wheelchairs from Quickie, Invacare, Colours, TiLite, plus many other wheelchairs needing this size. You can use the measurement guide below to confirm if this caster assembly will fit your wheelchair.
Measuring your existing wheelchair caster:
Purchasing the proper wheelchair caster is as simple as measuring the old one. Even if the size is written on the existing caster, you still want to make sure the hub width and bearing size will be correct. Properly measuring will ensure you order the correct caster and prevent an installation headache and the hassle of sending them back.
