If you’re unfamiliar with mecanum wheels, this 48mm Diameter Mecanum Wheel may resemble an everyday chunky wheel Frankenstein’d out of mini hair curler rollers. In reality, it’s a very cool, omnidirectional wheel with rollers which are supported by ball-bearings, allowing a four-wheeled robot rober to move in any direction. There are nine rubber beads around the perimeter of the wheel that lets it grip the floor when moving sideways.These wheels have a little insert that lets them be used by LEGO-compatible cross-bar or low cost TT motors. They simply snap on.
This is the RIGHT wheel, you can tell because there’s an R embossed on the hub. You will need at least 2 left and 2 right wheels in order to use all of the movement combinations.
