Helio A7 WheelchairFrom $2295
Motion Composites’ innovative technology has breathed new life into a lightweight, foldable, durable and adjustable wheelchair: the Helio.
Helio, the only ultra-light folding wheelchair in its class, gives a new meaning to mobility. The Helio innovation has been made possible thanks to its incorporation of Formula 1 and aerospace technologies.
The Helio design is based on lightweight composite materials. Every part of the Helio was designed with the three essential qualities of the ideal wheelchair in mind: performance, adaptability, and durability.
- Lowered seat posts
- Monocoque frame is stronger and lighter
- C3 Crosspiece, which distributes weight evenly throughout the Helio frame
- Ultra-light axle
- The rear wheel adjustment offers a large range of positions to enhance the chair’s rigidity
- ISO Lock System works in combination with the lowered seat posts to eliminate any possible frame movement.
- Light and easy to handle, like a rigid chair, yet practical due to its folding frame.
- Evolve casters offer a simple way of adjusting the angle of the front wheels!
Ultralight Aluminum 7005 T6 — An aluminum alloy renowned for its high strength-to- weight ratio.
Rigid Unibody Frame — A unibody frame is much stronger and needs less maintenance than a standard two-part frame. It also reduces weight while maximizing propulsion efficiency.
Symmetrical Hydroformed Crossbrace 3D — Entirely symmetrical aluminum crossbrace for reduced torsion and better energy distribution throughout the frame.
Ultrarigid Folding System — High-precision tolerances and oversized pivot axles for best-in-class propulsion efficiency.
Forged Vertical Axleplate + — Offers the most precise rear wheel adjustability in the industry. The vertical mounting maximizes rigidity and responsiveness.
Evolve Caster Housing — Embedded inside the frame for rock-solid durability, the Evolve Caster Housing offers easy and precise infinite adjustments.
Flip-back Convertible Armrest — Easy to adjust and made of composite materials for strength and reduced weight. The only armrest that converts from flip-back to single post without the use of tools.
Newton Accessories — Parts and accessories designed to be lighter, with improved functionality and awesome style.
