Wheels

Defense may not always win championships, but being able to move does. Put some power on the floor with our large variety of wheel options available for builders.

Omni-Directional or Mecanum Wheels are great for quick, lateral movements. If you need more grip, Traction Wheels offer great pushing ability and are designed for optimal grip on soft surfaces like the foam tiles used in the VEX Robotics Competition.

  • Offered in multiple sizes
  • Wheel diversity allows for numerous applications

Wheels

As the name suggests, an Omni-Directional Wheel can travel in more than one direction. When the axle spins, it behaves like a normal wheel. However, you’ll notice that there are rollers all around the outer circumference. These rollers allow the wheel to travel sideways as well!



Omni-Directional wheels roll forward like normal wheels, but slide sideways with almost no friction (no skidding during turns). Use these wheels to make your robot turn smoothly or build a holonomic drivetrain.




Shown above, 3.25" Omni-Directional Wheels include removable wheel inserts that allow for additional versatility. Use these wheels with either standard Drive Shafts or High Strength Shafts, in either a driven or free spinning application.

  • Offered in multiple sizes
  • Omni-Directional Wheels roll sideways with very little friction
  • Minimize skidding during turns

Traction Wheels are designed for optimal grip on soft surfaces like the foam tiles used in the VEX Robotics Competition.


Removing the tread of the 2.75" wheel reveals a low-friction wheel that can be used for other purposes. Removing the tread of the 4" and 5" wheels reveals a ribbed plastic wheel.


Shown above, 3.25" Traction Wheels include removable wheel inserts that allow for additional versatility. Use these wheels with either standard Drive Shafts or High Strength Shafts, in either a driven or free spinning application.

  • Offered in multiple sizes
  • High traction tire profile
  • Versatile wheel inserts for a variety of applications

The VEX 4" High Traction Tires are replacements for the "all-purpose" treads found on VEX 4" diameter wheels. These tires are designed to provide high traction on smooth surfaces.


Note: This kit includes tires only, wheel rims not included. Simply remove the current 4" tires from their plastic rims and replace them with these high traction ones.

Mecanum Wheels allow savvy robot designers to create drivetrains capable of moving in any direction using a standard chassis shape. Simply power each wheel with a different motor - by changing the directions the wheels spin, you can even make your robot move sideways!

Note: The orientation of wheels is vital when creating a Mecanum drive. Be sure that the left and right wheels are placed accordingly, and facing the right direction. See the diagram below for a correct example.


  • Allows robots to move in any direction
  • Split Roller style design
  • 14 rollers per wheel




Create robots capable of climbing over almost any obstacle. Wheel Legs are great for constructing All-Terrain or Off-Road robots. These legs consist of (4) spoke "legs" protruding from a central hub with mounting holes for attaching mechanisms. They also have high traction rubber feet and an offset hub for "overlapping" wheels.

  • Build Off-Road Robots
  • Mounting holes for attaching mechanisms
