Getting a puncture is (or would be) a nightmare as a wheelchair user – the thought of being out and about and getting a flat is well, not something we want to think about! – but I guess you must be thinking it if you’ve landed on this page and trying to find a solution. Ah ‘puncture proof wheelchair tyres’ that’s what I need. You have come to right place, we can certainly help you with that…
Firstly – before you do anything, please get the idea of solid tyres out of your head, these are a no-go. People think solid rubber is the answer as surely you cannot get a puncture. The problem is they create a lot of resistance which goes directly on the shoulder, it’s harder to self propel and you will be slower. Really, solid tyres for wheelchair are a health hazard.
The best puncture proof wheelchair tyres are known as ‘Marathon Plus‘. They have a special lining and are near as good puncture proof, whilst having all the benefits of proper pneumatic (with air and inner tube) tyres.
HOW DO WE KNOW THIS?
It’s not just the technical specification – but from experience we know these are the best tyres for wheelchairs, we have personally used them for years and know many people who have too. In 2017 Scott, Craig and Glen completed 5 marathons in 5 days (see blog here) – they all used Marathon Plus puncture proof wheelchair tyres and not one got a puncture! This was hundreds of miles across all types of terrain and the tyres survived – in fact Scott and Craig still have the same set on 6 months later!
