Keeping the pressure on!
Planning on getting off-road?
Thinking about the great outdoors and the adventures that await?
Now is no better time to really get to grips with the grip of your off-road tyres in extreme conditions.
Getting the most out of your off-road powerchair is about getting the right pressure. An underinflated tyre gives you a wider footprint, and the overinflated tyre provides a smaller one. These are important guides when you’re considering what terrain you want to tackle.
A 3.6PSI is perfect for soft sand and mud.
The weight of the user and the powerchair is spread widely across the surface, allowing a great footprint and improved traction.
The 10PSI overinflated tyre gives better range over harder surfaces.
