The Grit Freedom wheelchair was engineered at MIT. Rather than placing your hands on the wheels of the chair and pushing the operator uses levers that attach to a chain drive to propel themselves. Not only does this method of propulsion keep your hands clean during off-road adventures it’s also a better way to push.

These levers are about twice as efficient as pushing directly on the wheels allowing you to conquer more difficult terrain and travel farther without becoming tired. Depending on where you grip the levers you can maximize your effort for torque or high speed. Grip them up high for hill climbing torque or down low for higher speeds.

Riders can steer the Grit Freedom wheelchair by pushing harder on one drive train than the other. Pushing hard on the right lever will steer you left.

If you need to turn sharp to the left pulling back on the left lever to give some friction to the left wheel while continuing to push on the right lever will allow you to make a quick left turn.

Grit is manufactured from easy-to-find bicycle parts, if your chair ever breaks down or needs a replacement doohickey your local bike shop should be able to help you get back on the road.

The Grit Freedom Wheelchair can also be disassembled in less than one minute and fit into the trunk of a small car.

GRIT comes in 3 different flavors. 3.0, Spartan, and Pro. All 3 levels have the same basic design. See the chart below for the differences in each chair.
