No longer fear snowy and sandy terrain!
Slick Skis are the cost-effective, lightweight and portable solution for sliding and gliding through terrain that would have stopped you dead before.
They're easy to attach and add just over a pound to the chair's weight, greatly increasing your chair's capability with a few easy steps.
The slick skis will make both sand and snow so much easier to navigate by allowing your front caster wheels to sit on top of the surface and glide with ease.
Your biggest struggle in both sand and snow is the way your small front wheels drag and bury themselves.
The slick skis will also protect your wheel's bearings from getting filled with sand and snow.
This is a big concern when putting your chair in that kind of environment.
Let the Slick Skis increase your potential, and give you access everywhere!
Pair your Slick Skis with a pair of SUMO Wheels to create the ultimate off-road chair! (Pictured below, 24" SUMO Wheels) With these two simple modifications, you can turn any chair into an aggressive, go-anywhere machine.
Race down cross-country ski trails in the winter or roll right onto the beach!
Let Slick Skis allow to you not only join in with the fun, but set the pace, make the outdoor plans with friends and family, and be connected to the outdoors.
Fitment and Compatibility
Slick Skis fit most wheelchairs, but it's best to make sure before ordering.
They're extremely easy to attach to almost any chair, as long as the proportions of the chair are correct. Attach while sitting right in your chair, and easily fit to the front caster wheels.
To fit into the Slick Skis, front wheels must be between 3" - 12" in diameter. They must also be between 0.75" - 2" in width.
Slick Skis need clearance from your rear wheels. To find out if Slick Skis are compatible with your chair, you must measure the WTW(Wheel to Wheel) distance of your chair.
Below is a step by step process to find your WTW distance and see if Slick Skis will work for you
Step 1: Roll your wheelchair forward to make sure the caster wheels are in the back position.
Step 2: Open your tape measure and lock it, and hold it straight down from the axle pin to the ground to find where the center of your wheel lines up with the floor.
Step 3: Keeping the tip of the tape measure in the same spot on the floor, lay your tape measure forward along the side of the wheelchair.
Step 4: Measure the distance from the tip of the tape measure to the middle of the front caster wheel, or where the front caster wheel touches the floor.
This is your WTW(Wheel to Wheel) distance, and it must be greater than 17 inches for Slick Skis to fit. Many wheelchairs can be modified to increase this distance in simple ways like moving the center of gravity backwards a few inches on the chair.
If your chair is close, may of our customers have used a spacer between their caster wheel and the front of the Slick Ski to meet the WTW requirement.
Below shows how easy it is to install the Slick Skis on your chair.
If your decide to add Sumo wheels to your order which are 2" wide offroad wheels and tires here is an info graphic showing how to decide what length axle pins to get with the bearing spacers so they do not rub on your chair.
