How to get the most from your Magic Mobility powerchair

Changing from off-road to indoor tyres

Magic Mobility jack accessory for easy tyre changes

Our jack accessory makes changing tyres pretty simple.

Many of our users choose to switch from their knobby, off-road tyres to narrower hybrid tyres for indoor-outdoor use of their powerchair.

And now you also have the ‘in-between’ option of Crossover tyres (not yet available in the US) for even more indoor-outdoor versatility. For some users, this new option – which is now available to use on the Frontier V4 range and Frontier V6 AT and Hybrid chairs – will mean they may not have to switch at all.

Perhaps our most popular topic is how to change from one type of tyre to another. Check out our YouTube video demonstration or review the step-by-step instructions on our website.
