Tornado Rain Tips give you the same shock absorbing qualities, superior flexibility, better ground contact and longer wear as our original Tornado Gel Tips but with greatly enhanced slip-resistance on wet floors.
Performance Gel Crutch Tips give you shock absorbing qualities with high quality rubber for superior flexibility, better ground contact and longer wear.

Tornado Solid Body Crutch Tips are made with high grade rubber for superior flexibility, better ground contact and extremely longer wear.
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.

My patented Tornado and Performance gel filled tips are hand assembled in a 12 step process using the best quality natural rubber with only 10% clay mixed in, as versus 40-60% clay mixture in other major brands.

Over the last few years I worked to develop this innovative addition to our Tornado Tip line. My goal was to address concerns expressed by a significant number of you, my fellow long-term crutch users.

  • The desire for a lighter weight crutch tip to reduce fatigue.
  • A crutch tip that is highly wet-slip resistant.
  • The need for a latex-free crutch tip to prevent serious latex allergies.
  • The trade-off for our lighter AIR crutch tips is they are less dense than our heavier Tornado Tips (GT), therefore they will not wear as long. I recommend Tornado Tips (AIR) for lighter weight, less active users who will benefit the most by having very lightweight crutch tips. If that sounds like you, they wear a very long time.

My new Tornado Tips (AIR) satisfies these issues in one tip and like all our Tornado Tips, they are very durable compared to ordinary store-bought crutch tips. 

Compare the weight. Our ever-popular Tornado Tips GT weigh-in at 4.6 ounces each as compared to a Tornado Tips AIR crutch tips that weighs just 2.2 ounces…less than half the weight!  This is accomplished without diminishing the important shock-dampening feature that protects our hands and shoulders over the long-haul.

Embedded inside my Tornado Tips AIR is a large perforated steel disk that is mechanically bonded to the surrounding envelop. The disk will support great crutch loads and flex without ejecting the disk, making them last longer than ordinary crutch tips. Tornado AIR tips, while not slip proof, compare favorably to our patented highly wet-slip resistant Tornado Rain Tip tread piece. ($49.95 per pair)

Another added benefit is that Tornado AIR tips float. I proved this while sitting on the beach fishing. I removed one Tornado AIR tip so I could stab my LiteStix crutch into the sand and rest my fishing rod on the handgrip making it a rod holder. I thought this was pretty clever until I accidentally bumped the Tornado AIR tip and it rolled down the sand bank into the water. I cursed to myself thinking it was a goner. What a pleasant surprise to see it bobbing on the surface at the waters edge. I retrieved it easily and did not have to suffer the indignity of crutching across the soft beach with one crutch sinking deep in the sand with every step.

Fits crutch shafts from ¾” to 1”
