Thread: Power assist wheels

  1. #41
    This evening I met a fellow vet with MagicWheels. He said he tried eMotions, but had so many battery, range, and weight issues, he thought he'd try Magic Wheels. He really likes them. He has wide (1.5+?) 26" gray Kenda pneumatic tires with a solid center tread, knobbies off center, smooth sidewalls, and Natural Fits. He's tried to get stuck offroad, but never has. He also says rolling on hard surface to thick carpet is easy. He goes camping, fishing, etc. with them. I am now interested in Magic Wheels more than ever.

    I got the loaner last week. I kept popping wheelies with the power assist. Tomorrow I will try them via train to see how much they help my day--I leave at 6:30 am, arrive back home at 8:30 pm.

    Will be interesting to see how much it helps with fatigue issues.

    Long day but worked out amazingly well. I took Amtrak from the mid-atlantic to NJ and back. Left the house at 6:45 am, arrived home after 9 pm. STill have energy and feel good. The power assist took a bit of getting used to but once I had it sorted out, they were amazing for me. I transferred and had to take the wheels on and off a total of 6 times today. The cold and wind at 25 degrees made it a bit harder but it was very do-able. I was forced to stay with the chair for the entire day so frustration was not an option.
    More tomorrow.

    Normally I would be in bed and asleep by now so this really does feel good!

    I have the emotion m15 on my kuschall airlight pro & love them. Be aware tho - always use anti-tippers!!! I broke my tailbone demo-ing without them. Still got them, tho (+ a few xtras). BTW, I hated the magic wheels on flat surfaces. Also tried the wijits - they were fun & great exercise but you have to actively pull the paddle back which isn't easy without grip.
