An all-terrain wheelchair is a power wheelchair which is constructed specifically to travel through off-road areas. Unlike traditional power wheelchairs, which are generally only able to travel on sidewalks, home flooring, and standard streets, all-terrain wheelchairs are designed to move smoothly and efficiently across sand, gravel, mud, snow, bumpy roads, and other uneven surfaces. All-terrain wheelchairs easily transport users to places they would never be able to go in a standard power wheelchair, thereby ensuring that wheelchair-bound individuals do not miss out on exciting events and opportunities just because their wheelchair can’t take them there.
The Frontier V6 and the Extreme X8 are excellent all-terrain power wheelchairs to take you more places. Both of these chair models are manufactured by the Australian company Magic Mobility and distributed throughout the United States by Innovation in Motion.
The Frontier V6 is a versatile all-terrain power wheelchair designed to drive on a wide variety of surfaces, including through off-road areas and over curbs. This wheelchair is constructed with unique low pressure tires in order to provide the user with an exceptionally smooth ride on all terrains. These tires also allow the wheelchair to climb steep inclines more quickly and easily. For users who wish to use a more lightweight model or travel with their wheelchair, the Frontier V6 can be transformed into a smaller hybrid model simply by changing its tires and wheels.
The Frontier V6 can climb to speeds of up to 6.2 miles per hour and is equipped with 68Nm Torque, 800W, Gear-In-Line motors that are extremely powerful. While the wheelchair’s standard batteries are two 40 amp-hour gel cell batteries, these can be substituted with two larger and longer-lasting 73 amp-hour gel cell batteries. The Frontier V6 wheelchair is available in a wide variety of colors that range from dark green to red to yellow to bright blue in order to offer a hue that will fit the varying preferences of all users.
With it mid wheel drive design, the Frontier V6 is a great solution for those individuals that would like to use their chair outdoors and indoors due to the tight turning radius of the chair.
The Extreme X8 electric wheelchair is equipped with the power and capability to travel over almost any terrain, from sand to snow to curbs. This wheelchair is specifically designed with a rugged construction, which includes low pressure black knobby tires, in order to allow it to travel smoothly over a wide range of rough terrains. The wheelchair’s low pressure tires combine with its articulating front frame in order to climb steps and curbs easily as well as decrease the impact of bumps in the road. The Extreme X8 includes four independent high-speed motors that ensure that the wheelchair will not stall and, like the Frontier V6, can travel up to 6.2 miles per hour. Furthermore, the wheelchair’s standard batteries are two 73 amp-hour gel cells. Like the Frontier V6, the Extreme X8 all-terrain wheelchair comes in many different standard colors. At an extra cost, it is also available in additional custom colors and finishes.
