Long Wheelbase: The long wheel base is 50% longer than standard wheelchairs. This provides outstanding stability and safety from forward tipping — the number one cause of injury to wheelchair riders.
WideFlex Casters: Whirlwind's signature caster wheels were developed from an innovation we observed in Zimbabwe. They roll easily over grass, mud, rocks, and lightly packed sand. Solid flexible rubber wheels eliminate flats and absorb shocks.
Tension Adjustable Back: Ten individually adjustable straps provide optimal posture support for a broad range of users.
Tight Turning Radius: Allows the RoughRider to be used in tight spaces.
High Traction Rear Tires: Puncture-resistant, long wearing tires are perfect for off-road traveling.
Super Duty Tough Frame: Say good-bye to broken caster forks and frame failures. The RoughRider is tested to double the industry's standard for durability.
