Let’s be blunt: nobody wants to end up in a wheelchair. However, just because fate has decided to give you a bit of a slap, it doesn’t mean that your adventuring days are over. We live in amazing times, times in which companies such as Der Ziesel create wheelchairs designed specifically to tackle rough outdoor trails. Dubbed The Ground Squirrel, this awesome product is part wheelchair, part tank, and it was built for motocross riders, ATV enthusiasts and wheelchair users.
It is powered by a PMS electric disk motor that flaunts an output of 21 horsepower and 30 pound feet of torque, which is enough to ensure a top speed of 21 miles per hour. Main features include an integrated battery pack, an armrest-equipped joystick, and a range of 4 to 5 hours on a single charge. The $30,000 price tag is a bit steep even for a high-end wheelchair, but it’s definitely worth paying if you enjoy spending your time in nature.
