Fetterman Tornado Tips last on average 3x longer than any competitors’ and provide articulation even on very steep terrain. SideStix Forearm Crutches come standard with Tornado Tips.

Tornado Tips are used with both the Standard Tip Adapter, and the Revolution Tip Adapter. If you are changing the tips on your Revolution Tips, we recommend also ordering a set of Revolution Tip Adapter Bushings

    Needed a new pair after 8 years. Much better grip. Should have bought them 2 years ago.

    I’ve been a sidestix user for 8 years and this is my first replacement of the tornado tips in all that time. Thank you sidestix, your products entirely changed my mobility. Steve. Halifax, NS.

    Easy to replace my existing tips which lasted about 4 years.

    I’ve used these for one year and haven’t changed them, they still have another year left on them, they haven’t slipped once, the grip is amazing! I was fed up of changing ferrules every few month and costing a lot! These work out great value. They’re soft and grippy and a perfect size. I wouldn’t use anything else now

    These Tornado crutch tips are extremely soft, sticky, and very gripping. It’s in the material they are made from. Fetterman makes other models that look the same but they do not have the same performance of this one. Very long lasting too. The price may seem steep, but once you try them you’ll agree with me...they are worth every penny in protecting your safety.

    These are by far the best crutch bottoms I have ever used. I’ve had crutches for 40 years and these Tornado tips are the best and they last forever. Awesome!

    Tornado tips are amazing, I have yet to come across more adapting rubbers for crutches. I normally wear out rubbers within 2 weeks when I run and with the Tornado tips the go for about 6 weeks covering about 600km more or less

    I'm a left hemipelvectomy. I used to fall fairly regularly before converting to tornado tips a few years ago. Since then, I've only fallen once, and that was when a painted over rotten piece of decking gave way under my weight. I'm a big fan..

    To sum it all up... the last pair lasted me over 2 years. Best Tips in the market.

    Have been using Tornado Tips even before using Sidestixs. They definitely provide the best grip pretty much anywhere. and (not sure what you call the type of flooring they have Costco but when your tips are relatively new they will stick to the ground like suction cups at least for me with my Boundless) Also these tips will last you quite a while. As I was changing my tips out on my Boundless about 2 months ago came to the realization that I never changed my tips on my old pair of heavy aluminum forearm crutches I used before Sidestixs so I was using the same tips for about 18 or 19 years straight because I thought it would take brute strength to pull the tips off and to put new ones on so my grooves were quite shallow on those pair. However this tutorial video was straight forward it so much more easier to change the tips out by myself on the Boundless pair. Definitely would recommend for any crutch user.

    Easily the best tips I've come across in 50-odd years of using crutches. Durable, stable, superior grip on all surfaces. Only slight downside is the black tips leave marks on your hard floors, which requires a bit extra elbow grease to remove when cleaning your floors.

    Very long lasting tips. Very good grip, even on wet floor or ice. In the description: last 3times longer is underestimated. They last at least 6 times longer in combination with the revolution tip adaptors. In fact I do prefer the tornado tips over the rotating feet because they do not need maintenance, even after a walk on the beach. Remarkably more expensive than the rotating feet, but far more comfortable.

    The Tornado Tips are a great compliment for my SideStix. They are flexible and provide good grip.

    These stick to the ground. They even more or less stick to wet linoleum. At least they stick better than anything else I tried! They need to be replaced like car tires when the grooves get shallow, of course. I really should keep extras around. Getting new ones is like a little kid getting new sneakers!
