Developed in collaboration with West Coast Products, Straight Flex Wheels are for use with intakes, conveyor systems and shooters.
Flex Wheels are made of a super tough custom blend of silicone rubber - different than any other flexible or compliant wheel currently used by FTC or FRC teams. Each of our four wheel diameters are offered in 3 different durometers: the super soft 30A in light gray, the medium hardness 40A in dark gray and the hardest 60A in black. The varying hardnesses can be used to change the traction and compliance of your mechanism.
The 1-5/8" and 2” diameter wheels have a 9mm hex, which is meant to be stretched on to a 1/2" hex shaft. The 3” and larger wheels have a 1” bore, which can be stretched over a VersaHub so they can be driven by a hex shaft, VersaPulley or plate sprocket. This also allows you to stretch these wheels over a VersaRoller tube to create a strong and lightweight roller.
