Tornado Tips RT has a thick shock-absorbing Absorbalite ™ gel core with the important addition of our proprietary, highly wet-slip resistant rain disk that we bond onto the tread. Their wet-slip resistance is unequaled…over 300% more wet traction than any rubber tips we’ve tested. They have enhanced traction on dry surfaces as well.
While not slip-proof, Tornado Tips RT will greatly reduce the number of crutch-related falls caused by wet smooth surfaces. If Tornado Tips RT keeps you from falling just once…wouldn’t they be worth the extra cost? Personally, I won’t leave home without them! And you’ll be amazed at how long they last.
Tornado Tips RT tips have a 2″ base diameter and weigh 4.6 ounces each. The addition of the grey disk will only increase the height of the tip by 3/16″. They will reduce falls and protect your hands, arms, and shoulders from negative ground impact forces. Tornado Tips RT will wear 3-5 times longer than ordinary crutch tips.
