Price is not the only factor to consider when buying Newton AirGrip Handrims, the fast delivery from Sportaid is a crowd pleaser!


Conventional grips will only get you so far. Standard plastic coating adds weight and heats up easily with friction. And if the coating cracks and peels, it can injure hands. Plus, conventional grips…all look the same!

Enter the Newton Airgrip. Our coating is engineered to reduce overall weight by a remarkable 1 lb. It won’t peel or crack, so it’s safer. And our coating will reduce hand-burning heat as you stop or slow down. Best of all, Newton Airgrips are available in a range of eye-popping colors. Plus standard black, of course. Newton Airgrips. Lighten up!


  • Express yourself. 11 awesome colors
  • Ultralight. 1lb. (440 g) less weight compared to standard grips, for better mobility
  • Grippy” touch yields higher energy transfer
  • Engineered Newton coating reduces hand-burning friction

Great customer service experience purchasing these hand rims. I did not measure the tire size properly & a representative from SportAid called to verify that I wanted the size I ordered because it was an unusual size. I really appreciate that SportAid reached out to me before the order went through so I would not have to return the incorrect size I originally ordered.

Advantages: Great product! Hands do not slip on these new hand rims- the grip is so much better than bare metal.

Disadvantages: They were pain in the butt to install. I recommend you plan to replace your tire inner tubes when you put these on.

This Airgrip is better than expected. I like to go out and push my wheelchair long distances. I get good grip in everyday use and when I put on gloves to go long distances it grips so well that there is little to no slippage. It’s also better than the Qgrip when going downhill, generating less heat. What I feel separates the most over. all the other hand rims I’ve tried is that when you scratch the sides, it’s no different than scratching your car. A thin line that stays small and thin. All other hand rims I’ve tried create gouges and sometimes begin peeling away. You can scratch this handrim constantly and have little or no effect on its gripping power. This handrim does get somewhat slippery when wet.

Advantages: Gripping power
Less heat going downhill

Disadvantages: Slippery when wet

A beautiful handrim for most users.

Advantages: Lightwieght, Colorful, Good grip in a variety of weather conditions.

Disadvantages: Coating is not durable for a user where the handrim may come in contact with rough surfaces. An example would be a user who disassembles their wheelchair to enter a car, where the handrim will scrap along pavement or cement.
