The GRIT Freedom Chair is designed to fit a wide variety of riders comfortably. However, since riders come in all shapes and sizes, and everyone has their own strapping, seating, and stability needs, we recommend checking out the options below.
Anti tip bars
The GRIT Freedom Chair is conservatively balanced to make tipping over backwards unlikely, but some riders feel more comfortable with anti-tip bars installed. These attach to the chair to prevent it from tipping over backwards on steep hills. These are not recommended for all riders – they can get snagged on the trail and limit the range of obstacles you can traverse with the GRIT Freedom Chair. They easily attach to the chair with a screwdriver and an adjustable wrench. Each set includes two anti-tip bars, one for each side of the chair.

The GRIT Freedom Chair has a 14 degree seat dump. This holds the rider in the seat when riding over uneven terrain. This wedge cushion can be used with the standard GRIT Freedom Chair cushion to make the seat more comfortable for riders who would prefer to sit on a more horizontal surface. The cushion sits on the seat and the wedge is aligned opposite the seat dump, cancelling most of it out. This cushion ships in addition to the standard cushion on the chair, so you would receive two cushions in total.
The GRIT Freedom Chair comes with six slots cut out in the footrest to attach straps of your choosing to keep your feet securely on the footrest plate. These 36 inch velcro straps loop through any pair of these slots to hold your feet in place.
Active Hands Grip Aids
Riders with limited grip strength can use this pair of Active Hands general purpose gripping aids to push the GRIT Freedom Chair's drive levers. Two standard size grip aids, one for each hand, are included.
Everything you need on the trail is now easily easily accessible within arm's reach. This heavy-duty, water resistant bag has one large pocket to hold your gear. Elastic webbing inside the pocket helps to keep small items organized. Reflective strips along the easy-pull zipper help you to be seen in low-light conditions. Designed and hand-built by a GRIT Freedom Chair rider and Trailblazer, Nerissa Cannon, for other riders to enjoy!
This adaptation kit tilts the push levers inwards, making them easier for kids and other thin riders to use the GRIT Freedom Chair. Normally on the 16" seat width chair, the levers are spaced 17" apart. With the Kid Kit, the ends of the levers are spaced 13" apart, making them much easier to reach. Includes two angled levers, an extra cushion to elevate short riders, a shortened footrest, and free colored lever wraps. It comes fully installed on new GRIT Freedom Chair orders, but requires a bike shop to install on a chair you already own.
This footplate is 19.5 inches wide, 8 inches wider than the standard footplate on the GRIT Freedom Chair. The extra width helps the chair fit riders with larger feet. It also helps riders who cannot bend their knees enough to fit their feet on the standard footplate: the width keeps feet from hitting the front wheel if they are placed near the front of the footplate.

Extra pair of axles
Each GRIT Freedom Chair (3.0 and Forward) comes with axles. However, accessory wheels (the Beach and City Wheels) do not come with additional axles, since you can use the chair's regular axles with them. An extra set of axles adds convenience when using accessory wheels -- no more axle swapping required! These axles ship with free shipping.
