    Hey Icon Wheelchairs - go jump off a bridge.

    The biggest test for our suspension to date:

    Lonnie Bissonnette base jumps in an Icon Wheelchair at the 2012 International Base Jump Festival in China:

    I'll try to get more/better videos.

    Lonnie emailed me the video, so we can assume that the landing went reasonably well.

        I wonder why he jumped with the chair? His other jumps are done without and I think the chair would be a bad thing to jump with.

        I read that the chair was in "OK" shape after the landing.

          If he lands and rolls away, proving he can jump completely independently that would be cool.

            There's a para or two who skydive independently.
