Price is not the only thing that matters when it comes to buying The Surge Wheelchair Handrims by Out-Front, live customer service is priceless!


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).


  • Lightweight, all-in-one single component
  • Gription strip improves traction on every push
  • Oval shape comes in two sizes to fit the hand
  • Smooth side surface means no-burn braking
  • Close-in mount or wide mount options
  • Fits on all wheel sizes from 20" to 26"
  • Priced per pair

I switched from vinyl coated to these after trying regular pushrims and the regular natural fit. This gives me grip when I push and lets me slow down without building up a lot of friction. I feel like I get a little extra "umph" with the Natural fit shape.

32 years as a t9 para, owned more chairs than I can count. I have 2 tiLits ZR's both with Surges. This is the 1st major invention in pushing technology that works so good you will NEVER be ableto be without them, and you will wonder how you lived without them so far. There is an inset along the rim that "effectively" holds a glorified rubber band. Its a thick, great feeling rubbery grip along the top, it gets better the more you use it. Im thinking I can get several years out of the band. Then order another band and replace it. If the entire rim is grippy you burn your hands when you stop, its was all or nothing. Now Natural Fit has done it and why no one figured it out before this is amazing, its like the iPod, obvious only after its created. The actual value of these rims in terms of making your life easier, saving grop tension, preventing carpul etc. is ten times the retail cost. All I can say is, thank you Natural Fit, Sincerely Thanks!

Functionality is amazing but the grip strip started pealing pretty quickly. I sent a message to Out-Front suggesting improvent in the adhesion process and they assured me they had along with sending a replacement set IMMEDIATELY no questions asked!!! Amazing company and I look forward to dealing with them again!!

Advantages: Grip, function, weight

Disadvantages: Pealing grip which I've been assured had been greatly improved!

Love them when they are new! you can push better than the standard natural fit.

Advantages: Rubber does not burn your hands when breaking.

Disadvantages: the rubber stretches and can come off the handrims and nobody sell a replacement, so you have to buy a new set of handrims when they finally fail.

Great shape and great feel. I've been using these for 2 years now and I'm mostly happy with them. There's some drawbacks but they're still the best option available as of today. The rubber strip is a great gripping surface for pushing up hills or slowing while going down hills. It also works very well when it gets wet, unlike all metal handrims.

Advantages: Shape, grip and lite weight make this an excellent choice of handrim.

Disadvantages: The rubber grip leaves a black residue on my palms that makes them look dirty. I have towash my hands often.

The rubber grip does wear down over time and I've been told by Out-Front that it isn't a replacable part. It's discouraging to think the handrim will be useless once the rubber is gone.
