This Off-Road Electric Wheelchair Is a ‘Back Road Adventurer’ Designed for Fun and Freedom

Let me introduce to you the “Not-a-Wheelchair,” otherwise known as “The Rig, a fully-electric, extremely quiet, accessible bike that can go 12mph with a range of about 10-20 miles. It was designed with love by a husband who initially wielded two electric wheelchairs together so his beloved wife could continue to enjoy the Great Outdoors.

Also considered a “back road adventurer,” The Rig is customizable, so you can choose your frame color, wheels, and range. As far as weight, with two batteries and full suspension, The Rig weighs 130lbs. (59kg) and with one battery and full suspension, it weighs 120lbs. (54kg).



The all-terrain vehicle also comes with a rear rack mounting system to hold wheelchairs, coolers, camping gear, or a picnic basket. The Rig has manual steering and brakes and it requires a bit of upper body strength and hand strength to maneuver. (This is comparable to the strength needed to operate a normal pedal bike, the company notes.)
