Getting Down and Dirty

Getting Down & Dirty

An extreme wheelchair. An extreme race. Time to tackle the Dirty Dash 5K.

Extreme sports require an extreme wheelchair, and when the Emma X3 arrives, you know you’re about to have an extremely fun time.

Our good friend Sam Durst and his parents, Roger and Christine, decided to put the most extreme wheelchair on the market to the test. So, they teamed up with their pal Ryan Grassley to tackle the filthiest race they could find.

The Dirty Dash is an intense course for even the most seasoned runners. Athletes aren’t just running a 5K. They’re trekking the distance through mud pits, slides, foam baths, and mountains of sludge.

It’s an obstacle course of challenges that would completely wreck the average wheelchair. But not ours.

We made the Emma X3 for breaking through rough terrain. The large tires easily traverse mud and gravel. It even floats in water.

Putting An Extreme Wheelchair To The Test

 

Through the course of the race, the team tackled a variety of different obstacles. They traveled on grass, dirt, and gravel trails, moving over (and even under) barriers, all while navigating cold, wet, mud.

Some of the obstacles required help from other runners. With a few extra hands, Sam was lowered into pits of muddy water, floated to the other side, and pulled back out onto the trail.

Luckily, the Emma X3’s lightweight frame meant no one was lifting too intensely. They did, however, have to work to keep their footing in the slippery sludge.

“When we reached those obstacles and strangers helped us, I felt like they were having more fun, because we were there and they could party with us, than they would have had without us,” Ryan said.

With teamwork, determination, and no fear of getting dirty, Sam, Ryan, Christine, and Roger all crossed the finish line.

The real test of the Emma X3’s success is what Sam thought of the ride. “I’m having the time of my life,” he said.

Sounds like a stamp of approval, albeit a muddy one, to us.

Introducing the Emma X3

A Wheelchair That’s Ready For Adventure

Disability should not mean inability.

At Extreme Motus, we believe everyone deserves the chance to enjoy the world around them. As human beings, we are born with an innate sense of adventure and excitement. Nature designed us to explore and investigate our surroundings — and a lack of mobility shouldn’t prevent us from doing so.

That’s why we designed the Emma X3, an all terrain wheelchair for rolling over the barriers that stand in the way of so many individuals.

We work to make outdoor experiences possible. Being outside is good for all-around health. When you spend time in the outdoors, stress, depression, and anxiety decrease. You can even improve your blood pressure and help prevent cancer.

Unlike other mobility chairs, we equipped the Emma X3 with all terrain wheelchair tires designed for smooth travel over rocks, grass, and sand. As a result of the large wheels, the chair is buoyant enough to float in water.

Our chairs are made of lightweight materials, weighing in at only 49 pounds, and fold in half for easy transportation and storage. Chairs come in 17 inch and 13 inch seat widths and feature a 180 lbs weight capacity.

Adjust the chair height for easy pushing. When you need to stop, we equipped each chair with disk brakes and a brake lock.

The Emma X3 is an extreme wheelchair that makes an extreme difference in the lives of those who use it. We’re excited to join you on your journey to mobility.
