“My main goals were to find something that would roll over rocks, roots, and small steps. I wanted something that would work on mud, sand, and snow. Ideally, this chair would also move forward as well as stop in rain.”    Read more from Jenny here.

“This is an awesome off-road wheelchair that has opened up my world immensely. Not only can I easily navigate dirt roads, mud, lawns, snow and ice, but I am now able to get to many more places in nature that I was no longer able to get to."    Read more from Pedee here.

Benefits of the GRIT Freedom Chair for Riders with MS

Keep up with friends and family

It can be exhausting to keep up with others by using crutches, a walker, or a cane on uneven terrain. The GRIT Freedom Chair's lever drive takes the physical stress out of pushing yourself around, helping you to focus on enjoying your environment and the friends and family you're exploring it with.

Reduced fatigue

The GRIT Freedom Chair is significantly easier to push than a regular wheelchair. The ergonomic lever drive uses large muscle groups to reduce fatigue and keep you adventuring longer. The gear ratio is easy to change with off-the-shelf bike parts, so you can adapt your GRIT Freedom Chair to match your changing strength and ability levels.
