Matthews Studio Equipment has introduced Rock n’ Roller Wheel Sets, which feature three 3" x 8" foam, semi-pneumatic tires that enhance stability on a variety of terrain.
Designed with input from DITs, Steadicam operators, video assistants, grips and gaffers, Rock n’ Roller Wheel Sets are easy to slip on and can smoothly roll over rocks, power cables, cable crossovers, gravel, asphalt, uneven concrete and soft grass. With 360-degree rotation, they maneuver in any direction yet can maintain a straight line when rolling across the set.
The face-locking pedal brake features an adjustable pad to ensure strength throughout the life of the wheel; a dual-lock mechanism, it secures both wheel rotation as well as caster swivel. The round top plate is a real foot saver, keeping pointy corners out of the way when engaging and disengaging the brake. Plus, Matthews’ proprietary Spring Steel Sleeve attaches the wheels to the stand for a secure fit without damaging the legs’ sidewall.
Rock n’ Roller Wheel Sets are available in three versions. The Monitor Wheel Set pairs with the Monitor Stand II and Slider Stands; the Combo Wheel Set goes with Matthews Combo Stands or any stand with a 1" square tube leg, and the Mombo Combo set is compatible with 1½" square tube leg stands.
