WHATEVER YOUR TERRAIN...

Spartan Wheel Chariots

Spartan Wheel Chariots is owned by a paraplegic outdoorsman who started building rugged all-terrain wheelchairs on the tailgate of his truck. Even the best wheelchairs are not designed for outdoor use. Founder Ben Huntzinger was determined to fix that. 

Ben researched the least expensive products that still maintain strong integrity for off-road use. That way, everyone could afford an all-terrain wheelchair. He partnered with Spinergy Wheels, the "Cadillac" of wheels to identify a strong and reliable wheel with the best price per wheel. We believe everybody worldwide needs access to living. Spartan Wheel Chariots are the answer.

In 2019, Ben participated in the Georgia Chamber of Commerce's InVenture Prize Competition. He found an incredible community of support for his rugged all-terrain wheelchairs. Since then, our mission has been to partner with extraordinary people in providing an extraordinary product. We're changing lives, one wheelchair at a time.

Even the best wheelchairs are not designed for outdoor use.

We're Gonna Fix That.

Ben's Story

"The choice is totally mine on how it affects my life. I can make it the best thing ever. I get to decide every day. I want other guys and girls to look at me and see they can do it too. They just have to fight hard in what we call life..."

On April 25, 2009, I was involved in the wreck that put me in a wheelchair. It was an accident caused by careless behavior, and I paid a heavy price for it. On that day, I became paralyzed from the chest down. Im a T4 complete. God works in mysterious ways...

After my accident and getting out of therapy back into the real world, I found that my wheelchair was holding me back. I took a downhill skateboard axle and mounted it under my footplate. I was in the middle of the river fishing and rolling wide open with my lab Rambo running beside me as soon as I did that. I then started questioning my wheelchair company and other wheelchair manufacturing companies on where is the affordable solution for active outdoors people?? The response was sobering. There was not one person making affordable wheelchairs that could go anywhere. I fought with the providers and others about the subject for a long time. Eventually I taught myself how to weld and started building my own chairs. My dream has always been to help others get back into the great outdoors, do yard work, hangout with your friends at the park. Do what you did before you started using your chair. The mechanics of a wheelchair shouldn't hold you back! That's why I am selling them at an affordable price. I am you, we are all in this together.
