As we head deeper into winter, people have been asking us about using the Freedom Chair on snow. The short answer is: Yes-- you absolutely can use the Freedom Chair on snow!
- The levers give you more leverage to push yourself through it, so it's easier than pushing through snow in a regular manual chair.
- Your hands stay clean and dry instead of getting cold and icy, since they're on the levers and not on the wheels.
- The standard mountain bike wheels give plenty of traction on packed snow and ice.
If you're planning to ride on deep and unpacked snow, our accessory Sand/Snow wheels will provide more traction. And when winter is over and summer finally arrives, you can also use these wheels at the beach.
