Rough Rider – Offroad

From R6,440.00

Rough Rider has proved itself in 45 other countries as the ultimate Off-road wheelchair. Its innovated design of moving the castors forward, without increasing the overall length of the wheelchair, reduces the amount of weight that the castors bear. This allows for easier propulsion of the wheelchair over uneven terrain. The increased width of the castor to 40mm, further enhances the chairs ability to navigate rougher terrain.

The ability to fold the chair along its midline, allows for easy transportation of the chair. The absence of armrests provides easier access to the rear wheels, allowing the user to self-propel with ease. The fender sideguard prevents dirty from getting onto the user’s clothing while navigating rougher terrain. The rear tyres are broader than a standard wheelchair tyre. This further ensures the wheelchair’s suitability to navigate rough terrain with ease.

Product Features

Unique Wider Castor

The Rough Rider is fitted with an extra wide castor. Measuring at 4cm in width, this castor allows you to navigate over rough terrain with ease. It is one of the unique features to this chair which make it the ultimate, folding off-road wheelchair.

Longer Wheel Base

Moving of the castor position forwards on this wheelchair frame, elongates the wheelchair’s wheel base. This decreases the loading weight on the castors, making  the chair more stable and less likely to tip forwards, without adding any more length to the chair.

Adjustable Footrests

The footrests on the Rough Rider are unable to swing-away, like on a standard wheelchair. They can be flipped up to allow the user to put their feet on the floor and to get off the wheelchair. The footrests are height adjustable to ensure that optimum comfort and positioning can be achieved for the user.

Fender Sideguards

The Rough Rider comes standard with fender sideguards. They unfortuantely cannot be changed for armrests. Fender sideguards bend over the wheels, protecting you from objects that your rear wheels might pick up. It also prevents your clothes from getting dirty or marked.
