Out-Front “The Surge” Natural Fit Wheelchair Handrims
Whether the Surge and the Surge LT suits you, you will receive the same all-in-one oval with the Gription Strip. There is one difference between the two, and that is the size and weight of the oval. The Surge employs a larger profile oval that measures 1 1/2” long (top to bottom) with a weight of 20 ounces. A smaller profile oval graces the Surge LT (a smaller gripping surface for those with smaller hands) and boasts a lighter weight. The length of the Surge LT is 1 1/8”, and it weighs only 16 ounces – just a hair more than a standard, uncoated handrim (which typically weighs 13-15 ounces).
The Gription Strip
The Gription Strip is a rubber strip that goes all the way around the top surface of the oval handrim. It is a high friction strip that provides a grippier propulsion surface. The grippier surface is particularly helpful when going up ramps, hills, or when traversing difficult surfaces (e.g., like deep-pile carpeting). The remaining surfaces of the oval (the side surfaces) are hard anodized in black to provide a smooth braking surface.
