This is a black 4 in. compliant wheel with a 1/2 in. Hex bore and a durometer of 60A. Compliant wheels are not intended for moving robots, but moving objects. Compliant wheels give way to allow rigid objects to be manipulated easily. A line of multiple wheels on a driven hex axle creates a very effective roller that ignores variations in the objects being driven. This makes for high-performance intakes and internal conveyors.
Different durometer ratings give each wheel unique characteristics. Green wheels (35A durometer) are the softest and most compliant around objects, while maroon (45A) blue (50A) and black (60A) wheels are increasingly firm. The increased firmness also allows the latter wheels to carry a higher RPM rating. Check out the downloads tab for a chart showing wheels and their maximum RPM, coming soon.

Durable & Firm
This is definitely a firm wheel. Will work well for manipulation of materials when the lower durometer rating is too flimsy. The hex bore fits well and is firm on hex shafts.
Purchased for an intake wheel, suitable for the purpose.
I called the toll free number and received excellent customer support and service.
