Box Wheelchairs Rigid Wheelchair

What is it like to have a wheelchair custom made just for you by one of the greatest builders in the industry, you ask? Well, it's like going to Enzo Ferrari to have a race car made. This was the feeling I had as I went down to Norco, CA to get spec'd out for my new chair.

Box Wheelchairs WCMX Wheelchair

Well, after the great experience with the build of my everyday chair from Box Wheelchairs I set Mike up for a new challenge.. I asked him to take his already battle tested WCMX chair and turn it into a trail shredding, snow throwing off-road animal.

D's Locks Hub Lock Brake System

D's Locks Hub Lock Brake System

This system is killer! I had avoided brakes altogether on my chair like the plague for years, after smashing my thumbs repeatedly on the old school “push-to-lock” versions. And the “scissor” locks are just awkward to get to.

Frog Legs EPIC Soft Roll Casters

Frog Legs EPIC Soft Roll Casters

The new and improved Soft Roll casters from Frog Legs, Inc. now go by the name “EPIC” and the name says it all! A smooth 3-spoke design CNC machined out of 6061-T6 heat-treated aluminum (for you fellow gearheads), or in a composite hub. Both come with a long lasting urethane tire that aids in vibration absorption. These wheels are great in gravel and grass and float over cracks and cobblestones.

Frog Legs Ultra Sport Forks

Frog Legs Ultra Sport Forks

I have now had multiple sets of these “Ultra Sport” front forks from Frog Legs, Inc. on my chairs over the years and I absolutely love them! They let your front casters float over cracks and are great for vibration resistance, reducing back pain and leg spasms dramatically. They work great even on broken sidewalks and cobblestones. I have used these in my travels all over Europe and Australia. They are light weight, super strong, and have a very durable design; not to mention the just plain hot looking, CNC machined 6061-T6 aluminum parts. Good for every gearhead like myself.

Kenda Kobra Tire

Kenda Kobra Tire

These tires are the most versatile I have ever seen! They go great through the snow, grass, dirt, gravel, or any other nasty thing you can throw at them. Snow doesn't even stick to them, one tap and it all falls right off!

Kenda Koncept Tire

Kenda Koncept Tire

The Kenda Koncept (K191) is the company's answer to a hi-performance tire for sports and everyday use, the "Iron CAP" construction has a list of protective material under the tread that runs from bead to bead adding strength to these tires. The Iron CAP tires claim to be 90% more puncture resistant and I sure put them to the test.

Kenda Konstrictor Tire

Kenda Konstrictor Tire

Recently, I was sent a pair of the new Kenda Konstrictor tires for review. These tires rock, hands down. The dual compound wears really well. The smooth crown gives you a great rolling surface on hard surfaces like wood, tile and concrete and even helps reduce vibration into your body. The slight amount of tread towards the outer edges of the tire gives you just a bit of added help in those dirt and grassy areas that we all get ourselves in.

Kenda Nevegal Tire

Kenda Nevegal Tire

The Kenda Nevegal (K1010) is a serious off-road tire. Mine on my off-road/hike chair are 24" x 2.10" (54-540) with all black rubber.

Spinergy LX Wheels

Spinergy LX Wheels

Over the last many years, I have gone through a few pairs of Spinergy wheels and loved each and every one of them. I have a new favorite now in the 12-Spoke LX (Light Extreme). It has a thinner hub and is quite a bit lighter than SLX (Sport Light Extreme), yet is still just as long lasting and rugged as the SLX.

Spinergy SLX Wheels

Spinergy SLX Wheels

If you are looking for a great sports wheel, look no further than the Spinergy SLX (Sport Light Extreme). I have had a few pair of the 18-spoke version and I absolutely love these wheels. With the choice of 18- and 24-spoke wheels you can choose just how rugged you want to go with minimal weight difference.

Spinergy SLX Wheels (R10 Hub)

Spinergy SLX Wheels (R10 Hub)

I have had my Spinergy SLX (Sport Light Extreme) Wheels with the optional R10 hub and beefy 5/8" axles for a little over a year now and I cannot say enough good about them.

Supracor Stimulite Contour XS Cushion

Supracor Stimulite Contour XS Cushion

For over 15 years now, I have been using the Supracor Stimulite line of cushions on my wheelchairs and I figured it was high time I let you all in on my little secret weapon..

Supracor Tension Adjustable Backrest

Supracor Tension Adjustable Backrest

The newest thing to come from the great folks at Supracor is the Stimulite Tension Adjustable Back. Using the same great honeycomb cushion material already in their cushions and heaps of other products, they can now take care even of more of your seating needs.
