skyway wheels
« on: April 22, 2009, 04:53:02 AM »
Anybody know how to get Skyway wheels, the Bead-Lok type that are used in FIRST robotics? They have a keyed hub built in, so they attach directly to a keyed shaft motor. The company doesn't seem to have a distributor for these wheels, and they only sell large quantities.

Hi,

Did you contact them, asking for a retail outlet?

A rather fast and fairly heavy robot with quite large wheels needs what? A lot of power?

Yes. From what they are saying, you can't get them retail. After much back and forth, it looks like I may be able to get a few wheels direct from the factory.
