GRIT Freedom Chair: Hemi

 
 

Our engineering team worked tirelessly to develop 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.

Design features:

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

  • Steer with our easy-to-use foot support.

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

  • Lower gear ratio makes the chair easier to push off-road.

Limitations:

  • 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

  • Industry's best customer service

  • 30-day money back guarantee

  • 2-year warranty

  • All-terrain 26" mountain bike wheels

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

Performance Accessories for the Hemi

Steering Pegs

Anti-Tip Bars

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. $149

Comfort and Fit Accessories for the Hemi

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. $135

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

Small Stature Kit

The Small-Stature Kit is best for riders with shoulder widths between 10-14". This kit angles the levers inward, making them easier to use for slender riders; it also comes with a shortened foot plate, your choice of colored lever wraps, and an addition seat cushion. $229

Slim fit

The Slim Fit Kit is best for riders with shoulder widths between 10-14". This kit angles the levers inward, making them easier to use for slender riders; it also comes with a shortened foot plate, your choice of colored lever wraps, and an addition seat cushion. $229

Utility Clamp

The Utility Clamp is like a multi-tool for your Freedom Chair. Riders who want more or less legroom can attach foot pedals to the Utility Clamp and slide the whole unit up and down the boom of the Freedom Chair as desired. They can add straps to those foot pedals to secure your feet in place. Riders looking to add a pull-rope to the front of the chair? Add a hook and carabiner to the Utility Clamp and attach any rope you'd like. Also, use the Utility Clamp's vertical bar to make a DIY phone holder, cup holder, or camera mounting bar. Note: Spartan logo is only available on the Spartan chair.

Wheels and Wheel Accessories for the Hemi

Sand + Snow Wheels

Extra Axles

Soft 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

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. $74

SoftWheels boast weight-calibrated, in-wheel suspension, making them similar to a full-suspension bike. They are best on pavement or hard-packed terrain but aren’t ideal in deep sand or snow. $2595
