The diameter (200 mm) of our new Oversize wheels, combined with their ultra-robust design, offers unique clearance (curbs, terraces, pavements, etc.)


The bracket links the two wheels at the very spot where there are the greatest mechanical stresses. As such, our engineers, have taken very special care with the design of this part, in order to make the table incredibly easy to manoeuvre in any situation.


The greater the number of wheels the greater the load-bearing capacity. As such, the use of wide, twin wheels (38 or 32mm according to the models), with a flattened composite tire, significantly improves the manoeuvrability of the table, especially on varied (lawn, gravel, wooden terrace, etc.) or uneven terrains.
