Hopper by SpinOlution

Regular price $1,245.00

The Hopper is our 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.
