Time to Hit the Trails!

Time to Hit the Trails!

Winter is behind us and we can hear the trails calling our name! They’re saying, “please put a Swincar on me! Gas-powered ATVs are scary and leave me in bad shape.” At ASI we’ve been riding in our silent Swincars long enough that we can hear the trails, and maybe one day you will too. But for now, they want you to know that if you want your Swincar to arrive in time for the summer riding season, now is the time to order!
Adventure Sports Innovation has recently sold out of all inventory, and have just placed an order for more singles and tandems. Next shipment should arrive in June!  We expect that these will sell out pretty quickly, and now have a pre-order process, so customers can be sure to get their vehicle as soon as it arrives in the USA.  
Swincar now offers three standard configurations in North America for both our single-seat model and our tandem two-seater: the Trail model, the Touring Model and the Mobility Model.   Additional accessories are available too, from solar charging panels to storage cases.   Check out the details on our new website, SwincarUSA.com!

    Hear the trails calling, plan ahead and don’t miss out on the best driving days of the year!

Becky’s Electric Horse

Becky’s Electric Horse

Becky absolutely loves her Swincar. The main reason she loves her Swincar so much is because it’s adaptable to her needs. Becky is a paraplegic from a spinal cord injury, so she now has limited mobility.

Becky started riding horses 31 years ago for physical therapy rehab, and now owns property called the Castle Canyon that has a variety of riding paths already established. Becky has missed being able to ride around on the trails on horseback, so she started looking into different vehicles to be able to move around her property. She tested out many different vehicles and was never fully satisfied until she purchased her Swincar in April of 2020.

Since getting the Swincar Becky rides 5 days a week for several miles a day. The main things that she loves about her Swincar is that it’s very easy to transfer from her wheelchair into the Swincar, the autobrake function, how quiet it is, and the comfort of the Swincar. She calls her Swincar her “electric horse” because she is now able to get around her property in a safe and fun way, just as she did when she was able to ride her horse.

In a recent interview with ASI, Becky told us, “What I like about the Swincar is that I feel safe. It’s fun to go outside in the woods with no restraints, fast or slow. It’s quiet. It’s easy to go forward at any desired speed without the controls being jerky. This is such an improvement from my old 4 wheeler. Braking down hills with the old 4 wheeler gave me severe hand pain, especially in the middle of the night. The Swincar saved my hands! No braking required, even when going down steep hills. Uneven ground – I feel safe – never feel in danger of tipping to the side. It is so easy to get on and off, with just a little help. It is a great safe way to have fun with friends outside.”

We’re thrilled that the Swincar has helped Becky to get her mobility and freedom again.   Which features of the Swincar will be the most valuable to you?  The Swincar is adaptable and there are different options to customize it with. Contact Adventure Sports Innovation to learn more….

Off-roading is for everyone

Off-roading is for everyone

Yes! off-roading for everyone…

2020 was the ‘year of accessibility’ for Swincar. The year saw the introduction of so many new developments for drivers with adaptive needs, we thought it would be worthwhile to do a quick summary of everything you can do to make your Swincar work for you, or someone you know that may need to customize their controls.

Original mobility features:

1. The pendulum design and articulating swingarms keeps you upright and driving with ALL FOUR WHEELS ON THE GROUND. (Disclaimer: Rollovers are still possible – drivers with limited mobility should take any and all relevant precautions – but they are FAR less likely in Swincars than in any other off-road vehicle on the market.)

2. Every vehicle comes equipped with hand-controlled braking and acceleration.  Also, the thumb throttle can easily be moved to the right or left side of the formula one-type steering wheel.

3. Telescoping tie rods on the swing arms make for easy transfers to and from wheelchairs.

4. The reclining rallye seat has a deeper seat pocket than our standard seat, with higher hip guards – really minimizes potential to slip out of the seat for those with less muscle control below the wais

If you’ve been with us for a while, the features listed above are old news for the Swincar. These functions have been a part of Swincar since the beginning, and they work really well for drivers with good upper-body mobility. The goal in 2020 was to open Swincar driving to people without full upper-body mobility!

So here’s the new stuff:

5. The Push-Pull Steering Module

Great for folks without the finger strength or dexterity to safely operate the standard hand brakes and throttle. This option allows drivers to control their speed by pulling and pushing the steering wheel towards and away from them.

6. Power Steering
This option is going to significantly reduce how much work your shoulders have to do to control your Swincar. The power steering module makes for an easier driving experience and even reduces the “degrees to turn,” which means you don’t need to turn the steering wheel quite as far to execute sharp turns.

7. Enhanced Battery Gauge
For drivers with reduced mobility, running out of power out in the woods is a true safety concern. Swincar’s new enhanced Battery Monitor gives the driver a large visual display showing how much power is remaining, to help ensure you head to a power supply for a re-charge in plenty of time.

8. Joy Stick Configuration
This option is for our off-road travelers with very little upper-body mobility. You don’t have to worry about a steering wheel, you don’t have to worry about hand brakes. Just a joystick. It’s the simplicity of a powerchair, with all the capability and independence of a Swincar. So it’s way more power and way less chair.

Everybody’s different, and the engineers at Swincar are never done tinkering, but these developments are going to redefine mobility and outdoor recreation for ALOT of people. We couldn’t be more excited to get more people into our eco-friendly and highly adaptive off-roader!

Give us a call or shoot us a message if you want more details about some of the new options so that off-roading for everyone is closer and closer every day…
