F A Q

The Boma7 is designed for quick and easy transfer. The handlebars can be removed and the front wheels can be swung around, enabling you to bring your everyday chair right up to the Boma 7 seat for sliding transfer. A hoisted transfer is also possible.
The Boma 7 is available in one standard size (seat base 17x17"/ 42x42cm). However, the seating, controls and footplate are fully adjustable, allowing the Boma 7 chair to be enjoyed by riders of different ages and heights (from 4ft. to 6'6ft.). The maximum user weight for the Boma 7 is 110kg.
As a mobility device that is legally allowed on footpaths and bridleways, the Boma7 is limited to a maximum speed of 8mph (faster than it sounds when riding through the forest!).
On typical farm trails (hard broken surface, slight gradients, grass and mud) we would expect 12-16 miles from a Boma 7 on one set of batteries. This figure is approximate and depends on terrain conditions, loading of the chair and ambient temperature. Some users purchase a second set of batteries and simply swap them at a journey halfway point. These can be carried in the Bob cycle trailer or in a backpack.
Price is dependent on options and any bespoke requirements you may have. We would recommend a demonstration so you can try the Boma for yourself. Please contact us to arrange this. (As an indication a basic chair is £8,775 GBP ex VAT.) Price Includes: Boma chair with standard seating, Two batteries & charging unit. Excludes delivery. International shipping can be arranged.

Yes, the Boma 7 has a 12 month warranty.
The Boma 7, when fitted with our optional road lighting kit, becomes a Class 3 Mobility Device and is covered by the appropriate regulation. More information can be found here. Together with the free registration process with the DVLA, you should also obtain at least third party insurance cover for the Boma. See below. We would recommend the use of high visibility clothing, a cycle helmet and warning flag when using on the road. Always ride responsibly.
We recommend that anyone operating a Boma 7 in a public area should have at least third party cover. Fish Insurance are a specialist company working within the mobility sector and have existing experience of the Boma product. We would recommend their services.
