Simple and Elegant: The Surge with Gription push rims.
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. The remaing surfaces of the oval (the side surfaces) are hard anodised in black to provide a smooth braking surface.
Both the Surge and the Surge LT are the same all-in-one oval with Gription Strip. The only difference between the two is the size and weight of the oval. The surge uses a larger profileoval that is 1 1/2" long (top to bottom) and weighs 567 grams. The Surge LT uses a smaller profile oval(a smaller gripping surface for smaller hands) of 1 1/8" and it weighs less at 454 grams
The Surge will not add any width to your chair and is a stylish looking accessory.
