48mm robot wheel double 35A Soft TPE roller with lego or vex hub adaptor
Robotic Wheel Rotacaster 48mm Double (35A) soft TPE roller with Lego or Vex Hub Adaptor (Please specify which hub adaptor is required in the “Order Notes” section when you checkout.)
Built with the durability and ride quality of an industrial floor wheel, the multi directional Rotacaster omni wheel is a high performance robotic wheel. Its unique construction makes it the toughest, smoothest and fastest robotic wheel on the market with a choice of polyurethane or TPE rollers for outstanding durability and traction.
Fully bushed rollers engineered to minimise play on axles ensure smooth and consistent motion. The injection-moulded frame guarantees for no lost rollers with engineering grade polymer structure and no steel inserts or pins.
The 35A durometer TPE rollers provide maximum traction for acceleration and speed and are the ideal competition wheel. This wheel contains an ABS keyed bushing for either the Lego Mindstorms NXT/Technics cross or Vex 1/8″ square axle.

Ever seen a wheel go sideways?
Our Rotacaster wheel is an Australian owned, made and patented multi-directional wheel with 360° turn mobility. We’ve combined the simplicity and functionality of a fixed wheel with the mobility of a swivel caster. We haven’t reinvented the wheel, just given it a revolution.
Think about the wheel moving backwards and forwards. Now imagine a floor wheel that can move independently in all directions.
In 1990, inspired by a biblical reference that describes “a wheel in the middle of a wheel” (first chapter of Ezekiel), Henry Guile began investigating the creation of a wheel with unlimited movement potential. Henry continued experimenting for many years but sadly, his dream was never realised.
Ten years after initial experiments, Henry’s son Graham revisited his father’s early work. After two years of re-engineering trials and a determination to crack the invention, Graham finally designed the Rotacaster wheel of today.
Launched in 2005, the final design was an engineering feat that revolutionised the very nature of the wheel. The Rotacaster, an omni-directional, multi-purpose wheel, with unrivalled manoeuvrability and unlimited potential was created. It is the only real alternative to the traditional floor swivel castor.
