Hopper by SpinOlution
The Hopper is SpinOlution's original travel wheel and is unlike any other wheel on the market.
This unique travel wheel has state of the art SpinOlution engineering for a smooth spinning experience. You can treadle with your heels on the foot pads or attach foot pedals for a more traditional feel - whatever is most comfortable to you.
The Hopper is not compatible with GOLDEN WHORL engineering.
