How does SoftWheel Suspension work? 

SoftWheel uses 3 compression cylinders that absorb shocks / vibrations before they reach the user.

The wheel rim always remains rigid and strong while the suspension arms absorb the shock when encountering an obstacle or travelling over rough terrain.

The advanced suspension is placed around a central hub and actuates only when an obstacle is encountered, immediately returning the chair and remain rigid over flat surfaces.

This leads to a smoother, more efficient ride over any terrain.
