Low Pressure Wheels
The Sand Rider has 3 wheels and uses the same brand of tire as the Emma X3. These tires are made by Wheeleez and run at only 4 psi. With such low pressure, the tires act as suspension for the rider. Smoothing out the bumps as they roll across the beach.
These wheels are also large enough to keep the Sand Rider buoyant in the water, but with a rider in the seat, the wheelchair is top heavy and could tip over or capsize in rough waves, or deep water. Always use a life jacket in the water.
Because the main function of the Sand Rider is a day at the beach it doesn’t come with a seat belt as standard equipment, it’s a $60 option. Wearing a seatbelt in the water isn’t a good idea so it does make sense that it isn’t included.
Wheelchair users who prefer to spend more time floating in the water should look to the similarly priced Mobi-chair with its large buoyant armrests that keep it stable in the water.
