WHOOSH TM * Airfoil Speedbar Wheel Hubs with wheels (Patent Pending)

 

New! Whoosh! Wheels version 2.0 !!!

 

Put six-inch wheels on your Aluminum Airfoil Speedbar Basetube!

 

Now available in both Moyes/Airborne and Wills Wing versions!

 

This sale page is for a pair of Wills Wing version of our Whoosh Wheels.

 

Hang Gliding manufacturers have brought some really great hardware to the hang gliding market over the years, and the current airfoil 'standard base tubes' on the Wills Wing Talon T2C, Sport 2 and the U2, and on the Moyes Lightspeed and Litesport, are something that we would have only dreamed about a few years ago. Who would have thought that an airfoil speedbar basetube would trickle down to the recreational glider market so quickly?

 

 

Just one problem, that I see: There is no alternative round basetube option available, and there was no good way to mount wheels directly on the airfoil basetube until now. We've designed something really great to solve that problem.

 

 

Members of Team Raven collaborated on the WHOOSH TM * Airfoil Speedbar Wheel Hubs (Patent Pending) that you see here. The design criteria was simple, but the engineering was challenging: To fabricate a machined plastic hub that would be flexible enough to wrap around and close on the airfoil basetube like a clam shell, that wouldn't easily slide sideways, and that would accommodate wheels that can bolt together with no tools. Oh, yeah, and it has to allow for the normal use of the VG line.

 

 

And, if you're the typical pilot who has both a 'performance' hang glider and a 'leisure' hang glider, you can keep your costs down by owning one pair of wheels that will fit both types of gliders. All you need is one pair of wheels and two pair of hubs. And, as always, replacement parts are available at pro-rated prices, so you don't have to buy a whole new pair if you break or lose one wheel.

 

 

Since this part isn't injection-molded, each hub is machined out of a solid block of white nylon, and each wheel is machined out of a solid block of deep gray PVC plastic. We did everything that we could to simplify the machining of this part, so as to keep the production costs down. Still, like everything else in hang gliding that is built in batches of a few dozen at a time, and made in America, this wheel adapter will be fairly pricey. But, hey, this is hang gliding, need I say more?

 

 

 

* WHOOSH: Wheel Hubs, Out of the Ordinary, Streamlined Holes! (Patent Pending)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


 

FAQs:

Is this a complete set?

Yes. This set includes two WHOOSH! Wheel hubs and two 6" wheels. We also include four oversized rubberbands to limit side-to-side travel on the basetube.

What is the diameter of the wheels?

A bit over six inches (6") in diameter.

Wills Wing or Moyes/Airborne Airfoil Speedbar Basetube?

The airfoil speedbar basetubes on the market come in two sizes, and you'll find that other manufacturers are using one or the other of these same two basetubes on their gliders. The Wills Wing airfoil basetube is about one inch (1") thick with a blunt trailing edge, and the Moyes/Airborne airfoil basetube is about three-quarters of an inch (3/4") thick with a pointy trailing edge. If you look at the photos on this page, you can immediately tell the difference. They are both a little more than 1.75 inches in length (1.800 versus 1.880"), and only about 1/16" apart in this measurement, you're better off measuring the thickness of the basetube to determine which type you have.

A complete 'regular' set of wheels plus hubs is ready-to-use on Wills Wing's aluminum basetube, or ready-to-use on the Moyes/Airborne aluminum basetube. (This sale page is for Wills Wing version Whoosh Wheels!) You may have to move your VG cleat a bit, you may not.

 

Carbon fiber airfoil speedbar basetube?

Not compatible, but we have products to fit carbon bars in our online store.

International shipping?

Yes, see details below.

Installation tips:

        • Day-to-day installation is easy, and requires no tools. It takes only seconds to install each wheel. You can put the wheels on after the glider has been completely assembled. Just unbolt the two halves of each wheel, open up the hub, wrap the hub around the basetube, and re-bolt the wheel halves back together! The Whoosh!Wheel clamps in position and is not affixed to the basetube with any bolts or screws. We recommend using fat rubberbands (included) on the basetube to limit side-to-side travel of the Whoosh!Wheels.
        • The VG cleat on the right side of your basetube may be too close to the downtube to allow our Whoosh!Wheel to fit properly between the cleat and the downtube. In that case, you'll have to move the cleat inboard a bit, which is no problem.
        • Please note that Whoosh!Wheels are not designed to withstand hard vertical landings or hard landings with sideways motion. If you land going sideways, the entire Whoosh!Wheel assembly can and may slide on the basetube.
        • In the unlikely event that you should damage your Whoosh!Wheels, we'll be happy to provide pro-rated individual replacement parts to our customers. In other words, you don't have to buy a complete replacement set if you've only damaged a portion of your Whoosh!Wheel set.
