A racing chair has three wheels and does not incorporate any gears, it must be operated solely by means of the athlete’s upper body strength. Parts can be customized to accommodate the athlete’s impairment and build, as long as they conform to the rules. The chair usually comes in a kneeling position or a somewhat seated position (less pressure on your knees than the kneeling position but more pressure than your standard wheelchair). Athletes used special rubber gloves or 3D printed handle/gloves to punch the push-rim to propel the chair.
