Gear Update: Hadean Board!

Gear Update: Hadean Board!

Evolve has been busy, and we’ve been anxiously awaiting new surprise developments in their boards’ tech. They finally made the announcement last week and cut the red ribbon on their new Hadean board lineup! These new boards are quite an upgrade from the GTR, even though the GTR sported some pretty impressive specs. Available with bamboo and carbon fiber decks, Hadean boards can hit speeds up to 31mph on flat ground and carry riders up to 40 miles thanks to two – Count’em, two – 3000 watt motors.

[Yes, you read it correctly>>Speed: 31mph & Range: 40 miles]

This board is pushing the limits of the sport and is truly for top-notch and soon-to-be top-notch riders. We’ll let you know when we have Hadean boards in stock, and can help with pre-orders, but in the meantime, swing by and take our demo GTR board out for a spin. You won’t be disappointed.

Swincar Mobility Demo Day in Richmond, Virginia

Swincar Mobility Demo Day in Richmond, Virginia

This past Saturday, we had the biggest and most successful Swincar Mobility Demo Day in Richmond (Virginia) with Sportable that we’ve ever had! The best part: no one involved in organizing this demo day met one another in person until the morning of the event. Nobody should reasonably expect a remotely-organized group project to go very well, but Sportable and the York River State Park Rangers were fantastic partners. They put in a lot of work to make this demo day possible and we can’t thank them enough for trusting us and our Swincars. 

Ultimately, the arrangement couldn’t have been any simpler: we brought the cars, Sportable brought the athletes, and York River State Park brought the trails. We arrived nice and early, rode out into the park with the rangers to scout the trails and plan our routes, and then spent the next 8 hours exploring miles of trails with 18 disabled athletes from the Richmond area. 

For us at SwincarUSA, the day provided a number of takeaways and I won’t go through them all here. But I kept hearing one thing from the athletes, and it’s worth mentioning because I’ve gotten similar feedback from our accessibility tours here in Chattanooga. One way or another, disabled Swincar drivers keep saying, “when you’re in one of these, nobody has any reason to look at you differently.” We’ve been struggling to convey this point when we talk to people about Swincars, in part because we don’t want to make assumptions or generalizations about the experiences of people with disabilities. But, we’ve found that even for the most capable wheelchair users, there is something special about driving an “adaptive” vehicle that doesn’t need to be adapted. Once you transfer into the Swincar, you have the same vehicle with the same hand-controls, you receive the same safety briefing, and you have the same exact experience as everybody else. 

Well, the experience was almost the same. In more than two years of giving Swincar tours, I have never seen people tear through mud and water with the gusto of this group of athletes…and by the end of the day the Swincars were caked with the mud to prove it.

Like always, our Swincars got some strange looks from the park’s hikers and mountain bikers, even before the mud. But I can say with confidence that none of those park-goers had any reason to believe that the people in those crazy spider cars had bodies that worked any differently than their own. 

We’re going to try and do a lot more of these demo days. Even when we don’t charge for rides, they’re great visibility and exposure for Swincars, and everybody involved ends up better off for having participated. One day, perhaps through an event like this, we’ll find the right person and the right grants to set up more permanent Swincar recreational therapy programs in cities across the U.S. and Canada. We can’t wait for another Mobility Demo Day with Sportable!

If you’re that person, or if you know that person, give us a shout. We’d love to talk and do what we can to help get a program started. We invite you to learn more about the Swincar and the features of our Mobility model at SwincarUSA.com.

Summer is Almost Here!

Summer is Almost Here!

Tennessee summer heat is right around the corner, so you know what that means… It’s time to start cashing in on all those adventures that we’ve been putting off and dreaming about since last summer! Luckily, as of last week our water activities are officially open for the 2021 season! Keep an eye out for our Lift eFoil Surfboard and Pontoon bikes on the Tennessee River right under Walnut Bridge, and come join us when you’re ready to beat the heat. 

Hydrofoiling is our favorite watersport these days – either on a tow-behind model or especially on our electric powered eFoil board.  ASI is an authorized Lift Affiliate, and we offer training and coaching sessions either from our NorthShore Chattanooga location on the river, or as a private excursion on your boat! check our website for more detailed descriptions and call us to book your test drive session!  We offer expert coaching sessions for riders, and local sales support for those ready to get their own equipment.  

Unlike previous seasons, we will not be offering excursions on our Kymera e-Jet Bodyboards. The boards have been great, and our guests have loved them, but since Innovation is part of our name, we’re always looking to upgrade to the next great tech products for outdoor adventures. That being said, our Kymera boards are for sale! They were refurbished over the winter and are substantially discounted from their original price.  Give us a call or swing by for more information!

Spring is Adventure Season

Spring is Adventure Season

We’re so grateful to all of our customers who were able to visit us during the last year, despite pandemic concerns – thanks for your support and encouragement! ASI is still here providing adventures with cool technology, and working to fulfill our mission to introduce our community to clean technology for outdoor adventures.  We know that Spring is adventure season, and if you haven’t been out to play for a while here’s a quick recap of some new adventures:  

  • ChattaScooters are now a thing – we have three locations where guests can rent scooters around town!  
  • Our Little Vehicle fleet continues to expand, with some interesting new options for personal mobility, and our guided tours are growing in popularity.
  • Off-road boarding is growing in popularity, due to extremely capable devices now on the market like our Evolve GTR electric Longboards.  Come take a demo ride!

Our Swincar electric off-roaders are becoming more and more popular.  If you haven’t tried our backcountry tour yet, now is the perfect time – not too cold, not too hot, and the trails are fast and dry.  If you loved your Swincar Backcountry Tour with ASI, we plan to soon offer a second location near Chattanooga with an even more adventurous ride for repeat guests!   

If you really loved your tour, you might have wondered how to go about getting your hands on your very own Swincar. Well look no further, because the Swincar USA website is now live!  This is going to be your one-stop shop for all the information you need to make an informed decision about whether or not a Swincar is right for you. You’ll be able to compare models, check all the specs, see options and accessories, find pricing and purchase details, and find the closest dealer/test drive or service location.  We’re just getting started on expansion, and can’t wait to have even more Swincar touring fleets and private owners popping up around the country.

 

We’re also delighted to see small group events re-starting!  Spring is adventure season, and team building events, birthday celebrations or family reunion activities have been starting to reappear this spring, and we expect to see lots over the summer.  

We look forward to seeing you soon! 

Enjoy the Adventure…

Patrick, Carolina, and the Adventure Sports Innovation Team

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’s Electric Horse

Becky absolutely loves her Swincar. The main reason she loves it so much is because the Swincar is 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 to many different needs. Contact Adventure Sports Innovation to learn more….
