Tired of going to the park and having your front wheels sink into the grass stopping you in your tracks? That's all a thing of the past with the FreeWheel attachment! The FreeWheel allows wheelchair users to easily go over cobble stones, curbs, dirt trails, grass, gravel, snow and sand without getting stuck. The FreeWheel takes about 30 seconds to connect to your chair and lifts your front wheels off the ground allowing your wheelchair to go places never thought possible!
- The FreeWheel can fit on almost any rigid frame or folding frame wheelchair. Please note, an adapter needs to be purchased for a folding chair.
- Max user weight of 113kg.
- If the height of your footrest is over 4-3/4″ you may require a custom frame FreeWheel. Please contact us for more information.
- If the angle of your footrest is more than 12% the FreeWheel may not work. Please contact us for more information.
- If you have a flip-up or back footplate you will need a folding bracket which can be purchased in the store.
- Quick connection
With the FreeWheel your wheelchair casters are lifted off the ground, turning your chair into a 3-wheeler, so you simply roll over any obstacle: curbs, dirt trails, grass, gravel, snow and sand. No more wasting energy and slowing down to pop a wheelie!
Frequently asked questions:
Can you take your freewheel on a plane?
Answer: You can take the FreeWheel on the plane and store it in the overhead. Most airlines do not charge for mobility carry-on or mobility checked items.
Bob - Little Rock, AR
"I did the half marathon and with the freewheel it gives you the luxury of just concentrating on your pace and the mechanic's of moving the chair. I found myself smiling at lot when I approached obstacles that would have terrified me without the freewheel. Ruts, trolley tracks and pot holes were no problem."
Eddie - Winnetka, California
"The FreeWheel has drastically changed my life. I run with my dog without any fear of flipping out of my chair. It glides over any surface and feels so stable."
Dennis- Longmont, CO
"The FreeWheel is a viable alternative to an expensive racing wheelchair. Road races are a blast and I doubt my racing chair at 8 mph is that much faster than a FreeWheel."
Quentin - New Zealand
"If you are one of those people who thinks they are too cool for a FreeWheel because you can wheelie over rough ground and up and down curbs, you are really missing out. The FreeWheel makes it heaps easier and safter over rought ground and stops the front caster wheels from getting stuck in grass and gravel.So good ... I import them!"
Shaun - Saskatchewan, Canada
"This is the best thing I've spent money on in years! Straight out of the box, attached in 5 seconds and gone ... I mean gone! Flying across the grass and out into the gravel alley. Flew through potholes, floated over branches, with no slowing down. AMAZING!"
Brian - Port Townsend, Washigton
"I wish I'd had the FreeWheel since day one of my injury. Went to a BBQ and they have a huge hilly back yard with gravel pathways. Instead of sitting parked by a table I was free to move about the whole yard, play with the dog, chase after our toddler. Thanks Pat, I love this thing!
