Who we are

Growing and training in a variety of sports, like wheelchair rugby and basketball, co-founder Desiree Young wanted to create a brand that better showcases her community and culture. In 2017, with the help and support of her family together they developed Wheel and Axle, which is so much more than just a clothing line.

Wheel and Axle is the representation of a young, diverse, community of athletes and creatives. Our goal is to encompass the heart, passion, diversity, strength and enjoyment of living an adapted life.  

We exist to communicate a positive and encouraging message of many individuals who are devoted to adapted sports, open to new challenges and celebrating in the diversity in who we are.
