Ask us to find out if this kit is compatible to your wheelchair

Key benefits:

  • Integrates disc without removing original parts (wheels, axle, quick release)
  • The chairs width increase just two millimeters on each side which enables you to use your original lock-pin
  • Fits standard wheels (with steel spokes) and does not affect the rolling resistance
  • Adds a bit over  a kilo to the wheelchair
  • Reduce wear of tires
  • Good brakes in all conditions like rain, snow, mud or dry weather
  • Easy mounting across different chair models (foldable/rigid)
For companions:
  • Reduces width by 2-4 cm and weight by 2-4 kg compared to drum brakes
  • Removes cabling to brake lever, easier to mount and disconnect (during travel, etc)
  • Easy mounting across different chair models (foldable/rigid)

Reviews

I have limited hand force in one hand and I have to say it was incredibly easy to apply the brake on this hand. It could almost be done with a fingerprint. Ingenious!
Anders Nupen Hansen, President, The National Association for Spinal Cord Injury

For me the SMART BRAKE Technology is definitely a game changer. I did not feel very comfortable on normal (non-brake) ski’s. Having the Rollersafe skis makes me use them a lot more, which makes it easier for me to train, living in a country that doesn’t have enough snow each year to train on real XC ski’s.
Rolf Gelissen

Rollersafe roller skis have disk brakes that work with a trigger on your ski pole to give you superior control downhill. Excellent product. Love mine!
Mark Armstrong (Customer)

It was surprisingly easy to use, and works very well.
Jørgen Aukland, Dagens Næringsliv (Newspaper), Norway

Our testers praised the braking system which is handled very well after a familiarization phase.

Roller ski revolution! I am simply impressed.
