The GRIT Freedom Chair is an all-terrain wheelchair designed for efficient, low-impact adventure. Join your grandkids on a hike, take a stroll with your spouse, or go for a few morning laps around the neighborhood to start your day off right, one lever-push at a time.

Whether you’re 75, 85, or are an “age is just a number, let’s just go outside'' kind of person, the lever system on the GRIT Freedom Chair makes propulsion far easier than on a regular wheelchair. You can hit the local trail or stick to the sidewalks—with its sturdy mountain bike tires and anything-ready design, the GRIT Freedom Chair will help you stay stable and in control, no matter what.

Need a little boost? Our Trail Handles install to the back of the chair and allow a friend or family member to comfortably assist you with a Push Configuration.

If you want to stay active, we want to help make that happen! To start, meet a few GRIT senior riders and see what adventures they've been up to:
