What will arise from the combination of two bikes and a battery? It will definitely not be a regular wheelchair. Zack Nelson from the JerryRigEverything channel explains how The Rig was created, a vehicle for people paralyzed to move around in the field.
Zack Nelson, the author of the JerryRigEveryhing channel, is very well known to YouTube users. His channel already has 5.79 million subscriptions, and the vloger deals with him testing electronics, but his activity does not end there.
The man decided to create something of his own some time ago and that is why a special vehicle was created for the then girlfriend and current wife of Cambra. It was to enable a woman to move around in spite of paralysis.
The Rig, i.e. an off-road wheelchair
The prototype of the vehicle, which was baptized as The Rig, was created from the combination of two bikes. Zack Nelson’s gifted partner was delighted with the idea so much that the couple began working together to improve this design. The result of their work is The Rig, or "No Wheelchair".
In the film published today on the channel, Nelson explains what prompted him to work on this product and how he managed to introduce the consumer variant of The Rig to mass production. The device can now be ordered from the website directly from notawheelchair.com .
Today everyone can order their own "The Riga"
A sales site has already started, where you can order The Rig for yourself. The price depends on what equipment the buyer chooses and starts at $ 3,750. for the springless version. It occurs only in black with smooth tires for street driving.
People who would like to use The Rig as intended should opt for the suspension option, which costs $ 4,750. In this case, you can opt for one of the many colors of the frame – and in this case no additional payments are foreseen. You can choose from:
- dark green.
Regardless of the color, you can also choose the tires with which The Rig will be equipped, i.e. a smooth version for running on the street, with a tread pattern that works well in the field, which also does not affect the price of the device. Before buying, however, you should decide on one of two batteries.
The basic version of The Rig has a single battery that allows you to travel from 10 to 20 miles on a single charge with a maximum speed of 12 miles per hour. By paying an additional $ 700, which increases the price of the vehicle to $ 5,450, you can extend its range to 25-35 miles by adding an extra battery.
Why should you buy The Rig?
Zack Nelson argues that although his off-road trolley is not the only one available on the market, the others either cost a fortune or develop very low speeds. With his partner, he decided to create a product they needed and missed, and now others can take advantage of it.
Importantly, to enable easy repairs of the stroller, parts from bicycles were used where it was possible and made sense. Nothing stands in the way of mounting a classic wheelchair on The Rig’s back to carry it with you.
