Whether you want to hit the beach, cruise along a lakeshore, or tackle a sandy trail, we’ve got you covered! The all-terrain GRIT Freedom Chair is a great option for those beach adventures. Here are some of the reasons why:
The levers make the chair easier to push, so it’s easier to propel yourself.
The mountain bike wheels and front caster are larger than standard wheelchair wheels, so you won’t sink as low into the sand.
The chair disassembles and fits in the trunk of a small car, so there’s still room for your beach gear.
Remember: Just as walking in sand is difficult, so is pushing any beach wheelchair. Loose sand can be incredibly challenging, but it gets easier as it gets more packed, and nothing beats leaving your own tracks. Another option: Bring a buddy who can add an extra push from behind when you need it!
What riders are saying
The Freedom Chair is helping me develop upper body strength. It was a beautiful, warm, sunny day at Glacier Point (7,214’ elevation).

The engineering, off-road ability, and lever-drive system are awesome! There is a learning curve from my regular wheelchair, but each time it gets better.
—Chris, exploring his family’s property
I think I told you that I had found a new favorite place in Capital Reef. Holy **** it is ridiculous!!! I had a blast there!

The Freedom Chair seems pretty sturdy and all, but is it really able to handle a hike? Is all-terrain just a buzz phrase or can this chair actually handle the gravel, the stones, the sand, the boulders, the sticks, and everything else that would eat up other wheelchairs.
You betcha! But don’t just take our word for it—check out the below videos to see real riders, in real woods, on real trails, having a real good time. Ready hike a trail of your own? Fill out the “Let’s Chat” form at the bottom of the page and we’ll help you plan your next adventure.
