History of Performance
In 1974 SKYWAY "re-invented" the wheel by introducing the
first of the composite Skyway Tuff Wheels® to the demanding
bicycle motocross (BMX) sport. BMX riders demanded a wheel
which would remain true under extreme riding conditions. Genuine
Skyway Tuff Wheels® delivered that need. Skyway wheels
are fabricated with the best material available in our own
special composite blend. Composite Tuff Wheels are lightweight,
durable and maintenance free.
For more than twenty years Skyway has supplied Tuff Wheels
in a wide range of hub configurations to serve the Bicycle,
Health Care, Industrial Equipment and Lawn & Garden markets.
Skyway Tuff Wheels® are available in a wide range of sizes,
from 4" casters to 24" bicycle and wheelchair wheels.
Reliable & Maintenance Free
The unique properties of our Nylon composite formulated by
Skyway provide our wheels with the optimum blend of strength
and memory. The memory exhibited by our specially formulated
composite allows Tuff Wheels to absorb impact, deform slightly,
then return immediately to their original shape. Under comparable
impact, most metal wheels experience permanent deformation
and lose their trueness. After extreme impact, metal spoked
wheels must be periodically trued when their spokes loosen
from abuse. Skyway Tuff Wheels stay true after impact, rebounding
to their original form, eliminating maintenance.
Chemical & Harsh Environment Resistance
Skyway wheels have found their way onto carts and other applications
in chemical plants and salt water environments. This is due
to our material's superior resistance to UV light, corrosive
materials and other hostile environmental factors.
Wheels for Exact needs
Tuff Wheels are available in a number of sizes, each designed
to incorporate standardized hub and tire configurations found
throughout the wheel industry. All Skyway wheels, from 5"
casters to our newest 24" wheels, are built to accommodate
pneumatic or non-pneumatic tires, as well as precision or
flanged bearings of various sizes. Whether you require modification
of an existing hub, or the manufacture of a specific tool
to suit your needs, Skyway's extensive in-house machine shop
stands ready to assist you. After more than three decades
of business, Skyway knows the customer is number one.
