Advenchair VS Extreme Motus X3 Off-road Wheelchair

Extreme Motus X3

Advenchair

The Extreme Motus Off-road wheelchair is designed for people who need a caretaker to help them go exploring. The powerful disk brakes make hiking back down the mountain safe and easy.

Many of our customers purchase an X3 for their children who have grown too big to be transported in a backpack. These families want to continue exploring and enjoying the outdoors with the entire family and the X3 allows them to do just that.

The Advenchair (cool name!) is a rugged off-road manual wheelchair that is pushed or pulled by friends and family to allow wheelchair users to visit places they may have had a hard time getting to in a standard wheelchair. 

One great feature of the Advenchair is its ability to transform from a long adventure wheelchair into a wheelchair that is a more “normal” size. After your hike, you can make your way inside a restaurant for a snack.

Extreme Motus off road wheelchair

Pros

Pros

Brakes – One of the main advantages of the X3 is the brakes. Each wheel is equipped with independent disk brakes. Wheelchair hiking without brakes is dangerous.

Supportive Seat – The X3 uses a racecar seat which gives additional support on the sides. Wheelchair users who can’t push themselves often need this additional support to stay sitting up straight.

Frame – The anodized aluminum frame of the X3 has been torture tested by Ryan and Sam everywhere from Skate Parks to National Parks. They have taken it off jumps and done everything. This chair is bulletproof.

Brakes – Rear disk brakes will allow you to safely descend steep terrain.

Transformer – Being able to remove the front wheel to turn the all terrain wheelchair into a regular wheelchair is a cool feature.

Rugged – Solid design will allow it to take a beating as you and your friends explore your favorite trails

Cons

Cons

Care Taker Assist – The X3 is not designed to be self-propelled. A caretaker must push the rider in the chair. This may not be the best choice for a wheelchair user with good upper body strength.

Interchangeable Wheels – The X3 only has one option for wheels. The large low-pressure, tires give the rider a comfortable ride.

Supply Chain – The X3 is often on backorder during the summer months because of supply chain issues. 

Price – With a price of $9,950 this the most expensive manual all terrain wheelchair we have reviewed.

Weight – This wheelchair tips the scale at 60 pounds which puts it on the heavier side of the chairs in this category. It weighs 55 pounds with the front wheel removed.

Suspension – Advenchair only has suspension on the front wheel. Without suspension under the rider it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

Conclusion

The X3 from Extreme Motus is the ultimate hiking wheelchair. Its large low-pressure tires, powerful disc brakes, a super durable frame, and optional luggage systems make the X3 the perfect adventure chair. If you are looking for a wheelchair that will allow you and your family to adventure outdoors then the X3 is the right choice for you.

The Advenchair looks to be a solid piece of outdoor mobility equipment. This off-road wheelchair gives our own Extreme Motus X3 good competition and we always welcome more mobility devices that will help people enjoy the outdoors!

It is a little heavier than the X3 but comes with a transforming feature the X3 doesn’t have. It’s also a lot more expensive and you could buy 2.5 X3’s for the price of one Advenchair.

Do your research decide what features you need. Figure out your budget and buy the chair that is going to get you outside and enjoy all the nature has to offer!

The Perfect Wheelchair?

At Extreme Motus we want to help you find your perfect wheelchair. Be sure to check out the Off-road Wheelchair Research Center to help find the perfect outdoor mobility device for you.

Getting outside is important to our mental and physical health. Wheelchair users tend to spend more time inside than non-wheelchair users because they don’t have the right equipment to get out into nature. 

Choose the right equipment and you’ll have one less excuse to sit inside and miss out on the beauty our planet is waiting to share with you.

Grit Freedom Wheelchair VS Extreme Motus X3 Off-road Wheelchair

Extreme Motus X3

Grit Freedom Chair

The Extreme Motus Off-road wheelchair is designed for people who need a caretaker to help them go exploring. The powerful disk brakes make hiking back down the mountain safe and easy.

Many of our customers purchase an X3 for their children who have grown too big to be transported in a backpack. These families want to continue exploring and enjoying the outdoors with the entire family and the X3 allows them to do just that.

Rather than placing your hands on the wheels of the Grit Freedom 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 more efficient way to push.

These levers are about twice as efficient as pushing directly on the wheels allowing you to conquer more difficult terrain. Depending on where you grip the levers you can maximize your effort for torque or high speed.

The Grit Freedom chair is a fantastic piece of mobility equipment for people with good upper body strength who want to explore off-road trails without being pushed, or maybe with a little help. Grit is a well engineered piece of equipment and I find myself recommending it to customers when I find out they have don’t have a disability that affects their upper body strength.

Vippamat Hippocampe vs Extreme Motus X3 Off-road Wheelchair

Hippocampe

Extreme Motus X3

The Vipamat Hippocampe (Hippocampe = Seahorse in French) is manufactured in France. It is a versatile off-road wheelchair that can be equipped with dual bike tires, balloon tires, and even a set of skis. 

The chair can be self-propelled by the user by gripping the wheels and pushing forward. Your hands may get dirty depending on the terrain you are exploring but it’s a nice option to have. 

The Extreme Motus Off-road wheelchair is designed for people who need a caretaker to help them go exploring. The powerful disk brakes make hiking back down the mountain safe and easy.

Many of our customers purchase an X3 for their children who have grown too big to be transported in a backpack. These families want to continue exploring and enjoying the outdoors with the entire family and the X3 allows them to do just that.

Pros

Pros

Ski Kit – If you live somewhere cold be sure to check out the available ski kit.

Self propelled  Many people want the option to be able to push themselves in off-road situations, or to at least be able to help the person pushing them. With the Vipamat Hippocampe users can push themselves. 

Float – This chair floats in water. It’s really cool to watch videos of wheelchair users pushing themselves into the water and go for a swim while the chair floats nearby, swim back to the chair and wheel themselves back to dry land.

Brakes – One of the main advantages of the X3 is the brakes. Each wheel is equipped with independent disk brakes. Wheelchair hiking without brakes is dangerous.

Supportive Seat  The X3 uses a racecar seat which gives additional support on the sides. Wheelchair users who can’t push themselves often need this additional support to stay sitting up straight. 

Frame – The anodized aluminum frame of the X3 has been torture tested by Ryan and Sam everywhere from Skate Parks to National Parks. They have taken it off jumps and done everything. This chair is bulletproof.

Cons

Cons

Self propelled – Yes this is both a pro and a con. Unlike a standard wheelchair, there isn’t a push ring on the side of the wheel. Your hands will be directly on the tire. This means the mud, sand, snow, etc. you are rolling through is going to be on your hands too.

Order Process – While researching the Hippocampe I found the buying process to be confusing. There are 40 different options a buyer needs to decide on ranging in price from $63 all the way up to $1315, and they often aren’t explained very well.

Brakes – The optional brakes on this wheelchair are a parking brake system. They aren’t meant to help control the chair while descending a hill.

Care Taker Assist – The X3 is not designed to be self-propelled. A caretaker must push the rider in the chair. This may not be the best choice for a wheelchair user with good upper body strength. 

Interchangeable Wheels – Unlike the Hippocampe the X3 only has one option for wheels. The large low-pressure, durable, Wheeleez tires give the rider a comfortable ride.

Supply Chain – The X3 is often on backorder because of supply chain issues. If you’re interested in purchasing an X3 be sure to reach out to see what Extreme Motus has in stock.

The X3 from Extreme Motus is the ultimate hiking wheelchair. Its large low-pressure tires, powerful disc brakes, a super durable frame, and optional luggage systems make the X3 the perfect adventure chair. If you are looking for a wheelchair that will allow you and your family to adventure outdoors then the X3 is the right choice for you.

The Hippocampe from Vippamat is a great beach wheelchair. The ability of the user to push themselves in this wheelchair is a big advantage for people with a disability that doesn’t affect their arms. If you have the upper body strength to push yourself the Hippocampe is a great option for you.
