Description

Mr. Box was certainly up for the task at hand and did NOT disappoint yet again. I made my way to Norco once more to be amazed once more. Yes, hand polished by Mrs. Box with love and care. Even though I am about to beat this chair into submission.. or so I thought.

The frame is based in TIG welded, 6061 T6 heat treated aluminum with solid welded backrest and sheet aluminum side guards. I kept with the tried and true Frog Legs gear, Ultra Sport suspension forks, and EPIC 5" x 1.4" Soft Roll casters, D's Locks Hub Locks, and Supracor cushion and backrest

To handle the bumps and off-camber sections on the trail there is a triangulated 4-link suspension just like the baddest of Jeeps crawling in the rocks. The design is simple, strong and if you actually break something, the parts are standard pieces from a good hardware store. Even the heim joint rod ends are beefy and ready for torture.

To top it all off, I strapped on a set of Spinergy SLX wheels with the R10 hubs and massive 5/8" axles wrapped in gnarly Kenda Nevegal knobbies to handle the traction. I also added my own touch of a Burton snowboard binding for a waist restraint to keep me secure in the seat if, by chance things get a little wild on the trail.

Alright, enough talk! Let's hit the trail!

Update..

Two years and lots and lots of "trail mix" eaten, the Trail Gunner is still kickin' pa-too-tee. I was told by the man himself that if I managed to actually break anything that he would fix it. Challenge ACCEPTED..

This chair has seen a lot of time in the dirt, even slingin' some mud on a 26-day trek in China, and I have got to say that I am astonished at it capability. It is absolutely planted in off-camber spots and the tires claw their way over rocks and roots so well. The Frog Legs front suspension forks and casters handle the dirt and small rocks really well.

I have truly been happy with this chair, and one of the coolest things is that after a day of hitting the trails with my friends and seeing such beautiful scenery, I can roll right into the pub and have a beer to celebrate the day's accomplishments and not have to change chairs or even swap out my wheels. I can visit the trails and really get just about anywhere I want and essentially use the same chair that I use all day long and not have to spend thousands of dollars on a specific piece of equipment for off-road.
