GRIT Freedom Chair: Hemi


The Hemi is a version of the Freedom Chair that can be propelled using only one side of the body: one arm and one leg. 

With appropriate practice, it can be propelled independently, but most Hemi riders enjoy using the chair with a buddy. The included rear handles make it easy to provide assistance.

Special Features Include:

  • One lever propels both wheels simultaneously, giving you best possible traction for your off-road adventures.

  • Steer with rider-inspired foot pegs.

  • Second lever can be inserted to exercise your weak side, as both levers move forward in unison.


  • Requires one arm and one leg to operate.

  • Not appropriate for riders shorter than 5' 4" in height.

In addition, the Hemi model has all the regular GRIT Freedom Chair 3.0 features:

  • Patented easy-push lever drive

  • Quick-release wheels, seatback, and footrest

  • Padded tension-adjustable backrest

  • Great on trails (and lots of other terrain)

  • Fits in the trunk of a small car

  • Uses standard mountain bike parts

  • Industry's best customer service

  • Covered under the GRIT Guarantee

  • 2-year warranty

  • All-terrain 26" mountain bike wheels

  • Expedited shipping available upon request—just call 877-345-4748 to ask!

Comfort and Fit Accessories for the Hemi

Side Guards

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. Your choice. $199


Slim Fit Kit

Shoulder width of 13” or less? This kit includes:

  • Slim-Fit Couplings that angle your levers closer to your body for a smooth, efficient motion.

  • Standard couplings. A bike shop can help you swap out the Slim-Fit set if/when you want.

  • (2) footplate stems: One standard, one shortened. Start with either and swap if/when you want.

Note: This accessory may add up to 6 weeks to production time. $499

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


Anti-Tip Bars


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

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. Note: Spartan logo is only available on the Spartan chair. $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 Hemi

Sand + Snow Wheels

Extra Axles

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

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
