Because the World’s Not Flat ™
Magic Mobility has been enabling its clients to experience the freedom and adventure that comes with a go-anywhere wheelchair since 1994. In the process, the company is re-defining wheelchair mobility for new generations and improving lives. Magic Mobility’s purpose is to empower people to push boundaries and to experience a world that’s not flat™.
From its origins to designing and building manual wheelchairs, Magic soon moved to powered chairs, noticing the unfulfilled need to for outdoor experiences, highly mobile wheelchair bases that were capable of climbing gutters and taking on rough and unpredictable terrain. A series of successful wheelchair designs culminated in the development of the Extreme X8. With a powerful motor driving each of the four wheels, the Extreme could take users to places that had never seemed possible before.
The Magic Mobility Extreme X8 will be your partner to just about any destination; through sand or snow and up or down kerbs*. Unrivalled off-road performance and reliability make it perfect for outdoor adventurers, explorers and rural workers. If the great outdoors is where you want to be, the Magic Mobility Extreme X8 is waiting to take you there.
With a top speed of 10 kilometres per hour, the Extreme X8 off-road 4×4 electric wheelchair combines rugged construction and high torque gear in line motors. Articulated frame technology helps keep all four driving wheels on the ground as the 14” low pressure tyres give the traction required to overcome what some say is impossible.
* Please remember, all Magic Mobility powerchairs have electric motors and must NEVER be driven through water, into rivers, creeks and the sea.
