Outlander All-Terrain: Off-Road Focused

The Outlander All-Terrain is arguably the most off-road focused of all the wheelchairs available at CareCo with every feature being made to work in an off-road context. If you plan to spend a lot of time where the roads don’t go then this will likely be the chair for you. The most notable feature is the chunky pair of rear tyres. Inspired by the design of a mountain bike these wheels will provide grip on moist and uneven surfaces, making you less likely top get stuck or just spin your wheels.

They are also strong enough to handle dropping down small ledges or rolling over rock or logs, so you won’t be wincing every time you hit a bump. In addition to the wheels, the Outlander is made from robust materials. The frame is light yet rigid so you can move with agility while not worrying about damage. Additionally, all the surfaces are designed to be easy to clean if they get muddy, just hose or wipe down with water.

Enduro Suspension: Smooth Travelling

The Enduro Suspension is about providing smoothness and comfort when travelling on rougher terrain. The meticulous engineering ensures that you don’t feel shaken to bits every time you venture off the nice smooth pavement.

The primary way the Enduro provides a smooth ride is through the suspension on the rear wheels. This allows each side of the chair to react independently to a bump or divot, preventing it from becoming unsettled from the jolt. Not only will this help increase comfort, but it also gives you confidence in the control you have over the chair. The suspension isn’t the only part of the Enduro that adds comfort, however.

There is also the padded chair, which further dampens the undulations of the off-road terrain. Finally, the higher armrests and footplates keep you secure as you travel. Whichever off-road wheelchair you pick for your lifestyle you can be assured that you’ll be able to keep moving without trouble.
