Excellent quality at good price

Reviewed by: Jeremy Crook - 02 January 2018
I've been looking for a set of Mecanum wheels for a long time and finally stumbled on these while browsing the Rapid web site. These are good quality 100mm diameter wheels and are sturdy enough to take a lot of abuse. I'm currently using them with Vex IQ motors which are under powered when directly connected and so need to be geared down for optimal use, especially on surfaces like carpet, they work more efficiently on tile and hardwood floors. These are an excellent addition to my robotics setup.
