Tornado Solid Body Rain Crutch Tips have all the same great qualities as our Tornado SB tips, superior flexibility, better ground contact and longer wear, with highly improved slip-resistance in wet conditions. Tornado Solid Body Rain Tips have our proprietary rain disk formula bonded over the tread making them over 300% more wet slip resistant than any rubber tip we have tested. They have excellent traction on dry surfaces as well.
The addition of the Rain Tip will only increase the height of the tip by 3/16". While not slip-proof, the Rain Tip will greatly reduce the number and severity of crutch related falls caused by wet smooth surfaces.
If they keep you from falling just once a year wouldn't they be worth the extra cost? Because there is no Absorbalite ™ gel inside, the Tornado SBR will not protect your shoulders like its famous brother the Tornado RT. However, unlike ordinary tips, our steel disk cannot be ejected through the sidewall of the tip and cause premature failure. These tips out-wear ordinary tips 3-4 times over.
Tornado SBR tips have a 2" base diameter and weigh 4.6 ounces each.
Fits crutch shafts from 3/4" to 1"
