Skiing is the most welcomed extreme sport among young people with lower body disabilities. In the process of skiing, they mostly love the feeling of carving, a combination of tilting and steering. SWAY is an adaptive carver to make the carving experience more approachable to those people. The front wheels utilize a linkage system that allows leaning during turns while the rear part is free to steer using the handlebars to position the user’s body weight. Driven by battery, the user can get the skiing experience without much effort. The main environment will most likely be in sports programs for people with disabilities in urban areas.
