Performance Accessories for the 3.0

Trail Handles

These high-strength, steel handles wrapped in soft handlebar tape can be set up for one or two pushers. They slide and secure right into the seatback for security over any terrain. $399

Anti-Tip Bars

Steering Pegs

Steering Pegs attach to the front wheel of the Freedom Chair and allow riders with lower-limb mobility to steer the chair with their feet. They are the best weapon against crowned and side-sloped surfaces. $49

These adjustable Anti-Tip Bars prevent you from tipping backward. They are easy to add and remove, and give some riders the peace of mind to tackle steeper inclines with confidence. $249

Comfort and Fit Accessories for the 3.0

Side Guards

Foot Strap

Wedge Cushion

These optional Side Guards limit mud splatter and add an extra layer between loose clothing and the wheels. They ship with magnets and screws for temporary or permanent use. $199

Your GRIT Freedom Chair comes with six footrest slots—simply loop this velcro Foot Strap through your choice of slots to secure your feet during any adventure. $15

When used atop the standard cushion, the Wedge Cushion elevates your seat position. Some riders use the cushion to increase elbow clearance; others use it to increase legroom. $49

Wide Foot Plate

The Wide Foot Plate is 8" wider than the standard foot plate and is most popular with riders with large feet or limited knee flexibility. Like the standard foot plate, it is vertically adjustable. $229


Slim Fit Kit

The Slim Fit Kit angles your levers inward, making it a key accessory for riders with shoulder widths measuring between 10” and 14". Because it is installed as an integral part of the chair, it is best when ordered at the same time as the chair itself. $249

Utility Clamp

The Utility Clamp is like a multi-tool for your Freedom Chair. It comes in 4 different variations:

  • Bare: Use the Utility Clamp's vertical bar to make a DIY phone holder, cup holder, or camera mounting bar. $299

  • Rope Mount: Looking to add a pull-rope to the front of the chair? This configuration of the Utility Clamp comes with a hook and carabiner so you can attach any rope you'd like. $349

  • Foot Platform: With this configuration you can move your foot placement along the front bar of the Freedom Chair. This is a great option for taller riders who need more room for their legs, those who want more ground clearance, shorter riders whose feet need to be elevated, and those with limited knee mobility. $399

  • Leg Elevation: Riders who want more legroom, or those who are more comfortable with straight legs, can extend their legs over this horizontal bar. Padded calf supports provide a comfortable place to rest your legs. You can also slide the whole unit up and down the boom of the Freedom Chair as desired. $449

Wheels and Wheel Accessories for the 3.0

Sand + Snow Wheels

Hit the beach or snow with these wide wheels that you can swap onto your GRIT Freedom Chair. At 2.25" wide, these wheels will help you float over sand, snow, and other loose terrain. $399

Extra Axles

While each GRIT Freedom Chair comes with the necessary axles, an extra set adds convenience when using accessory wheels, which means no more axle swapping required. $75

Standard Wheel-Set

Grit Freedom Chair SKU 2019 DSC04340.jpg

These 26" mountain bike wheels come standard with models of the 3.0, Hemi, and Push Freedom Chair. Whether you own another model chair, want to dedicate a set of wheels for indoor/outdoor use, or just want a backup, this is the wheel-set for you.
