Mobility Demo Day

Mobility Demo Day

In mid-March Swincar USA held our second ever Swincar Mobility Demo Day at Morrow Park Farms in Reynolds, GA. Our goal was to get disabled men and women from the Atlanta Area out and riding with complimentary 30-minute excursions on the farm’s miles of trails. We had a fantastic time and every rider that signed up got to drive on some beautiful and exciting terrain!

One of the many wonderful features of our Swincars is their accessibility. Swincars are completely hand operated and do not require use of the driver’s legs or feet. This makes for a fun and exciting off road vehicle for users of all abilities. Swincars are also incredibly safe to drive and quite simple to learn!

Overall, it was a fun and exciting mobility demo day! We can’t wait for many more to come in the future. Check our video highlights below, and keep an eye out for announcements regarding future Mobility Demo opportunities!   If you know of an organization that might like to host such a demo, please let us know!

The S3’s are Coming!

The S3’s are Coming!

Our engineers are constantly working to refine the Swincar for optimal driving experience and performance.  The Swincar factory in France is now producing the S3 model, which features lots of small upgrades, as well as a few new features and options. Here’s a partial list:

  • Engine brakes (regenerative braking system): have been optimized to be even smoother and quieter than before.  Additional Braking options include the “performance brakes” which integrate electric assistance for easier and more secure braking, and “progressive brakes” which incorporate the electric-assist progressive brakes into a thumb  press lever as a mobility feature for drivers not comfortable with squeeze-lever braking.
  • Optimized direct steering:  Now that the Formula One steering wheel is standard on the Swincar, the designers have reduced the rotation angle to 135°, instead of 180° previously.  Results – easier on the hands and arms for longer drives, and especially for those with reduced arm strength.  Custom mobility options include a 90° turn radius steering wheel.
  • 90 amp-hour Battery:  While only slightly bigger than the previous 87Ah battery, the new cell configuration designed by Swincar provides longer drive time with the same recharge times!  On single seaters, that equates to about 4.5 hours drive time or 90 miles at top speed, with just over two hours to charge up.  
  • Enhanced Motor Controllers: Quiet is now silent!  New motor controllers with sine wave design are even quieter, with torque delivered even more smoothly than in previous models.
  • Three speed switch: For those looking to reduce top speed on the vehicle, a simple switch can be installed out of sight to adjust vehicle top speed as needed – potentially very useful in a touring operation or when training new drivers.
  • LED headlights: After a successful introduction as optional equipment on the S2 model last year, Swincar has made these sharp looking LED headlights standard equipment on the S3 models.  Super bright, modern and extremely low energy usage makes these ideal for our electric off-roaders. 

Swincar USA has a shipment of the S3’s on the way, due to arrive in June – reserve yours now!  For more info and pictures, check out the details on our website.

Swincars at Banning Mills

Swincars at Banning Mills

Just in time for the Summer season, Historic Banning Mills in Whitesburg, Georgia has added Swincar e-Spider off-road tours to their already extensive lineup of adrenaline-pumping experiences! Here are a few reasons why Swincars at Banning Mills will certainly make for a memorable vacation.

Historic Banning Mills is a premier adventure resort just 45 minutes west of Atlanta. For more than 20 years the team at Banning Mills has been perfecting the art of making memories and they have, quite literally, written the book on designing and developing world-class adventures. 

“Historic Banning Mills was founded in 1998 with a priority goal of preserving the history of Banning Mills and the beauty of the unique eco system of the Snake Creek Gorge. Since 1998, our conservancy has worked with the Trust for Public Lands and the Upper Chattahoochee River Keepers and the area now has over 1,500 pristine acres preserved in perpetuity (Forever). The facility has a historic interpretive center, book and video documentary of the history of Banning Mills and has preserved many of the town roads, trails and building sites in the Gorge.”

In addition to kayak tours, horseback riding, and the world’s most extensive zipline and treetops ropes course, guests can now explore this one-of-a-kind property from the seat of the one-of-kind Swincar. We are certain that Swincars at Banning Mills will be a welcomed new addition!

Congratulations Banning Mills! Welcome to the Swincar family.

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….
