Renegade All Terrain Wheelchair

A great new design for an all terrain wheelchair built here in Maine called the Renegade. It uses mountain bike like wheels and ratcheting mechanism to allow the user to propel the chair using two oar like handles on either side. The oars are pushed front to back, and there are gears to control the amount of tension on the handles. Designed for rough terrain such as rocks, sand or the woods. It even has optional gun rack, fishing pole holder, trailer hitch and accessories for plowing.
It looks like it would take a fair amount of upper body strength, but a great design and unique idea. Chairs start at $3,995
Visit the Renegade site for more information or the inventors You Tube Channel for more video of the chair in action.

Thanks for supporting Maine VRC.
