Changing it up!

Don’t let your wheels hold you back. Crossover tyres are now available on our Magic Mobility Frontier V6 electric wheelchairs, and our Magic Mobility Frontier V4 models globally (except in USA).

The wheels are very easy to swap out using our handy jack accessory. A Crossover tyre is the perfect solution between an urban and an off-road tyre – as you don’t have to swap out our tyres as often. It’s smoother than an off-road tyre, and with a shorter tread, it means your wheels are much better suited for the indoors. There is less wear when using your chair in an urban setting, especially when you’re hitting the pavement.

Give yourself the ultimate freedom – check out these simple steps for changing out a wheel.

Step 1:
