CARBON FIBRE TECHNOLOGY

The miracle material that makes Carbon Black the most energy efficient (easy to push) manual wheelchair on the planet.

To take full advantage of the amazing properties of carbon fibre we use more than any other wheelchair worldwide.

Benefits:

  • An incredible strength to weight ratio: Weighs from 5.5 kg inc wheels and tyres and is so strong that we give you a two year warranty.
  • Unparalleled energy efficiency: We believe Carbon Black is the easiest manual wheelchair in the world to push, we will soon be carrying out a scientific study to prove it.
  • Absorbs bumps for a smoother ride: The monocoque has suspension qualities without the weight & loss of pushing performance common with conventional wheelchair suspension.
  • Tactile warming and pleasing to touch: Carbon fibre is a smooth material that won’t hurt your hands, leave black marks around your home or scratch your car.
  • Creates beautiful sculptural shapes: Only by using carbon fibre can the ergonomic load spreading forms seen in Formula 1 be put in a lightweight wheelchair.

WHEELS

The Carbon Black wheels have been purpose designed to be the ultimate lightweight wheelchair wheels. Energy efficiency (ease of pushing) is unparalleled by any other wheelchair wheel due to our extensive use of carbon fibre and tyre type.Our wheels are solid one-piece carbon 5 spoke rims, they are 26” and weigh an incredible 0.5kgs each, fitted with tyres and bearings. All of our wheels include a moulded ergonomic push rim as a structural part of the wheel – no more catching your fingers or having to touch hot or cold metal rings.

MONOSTEM

Our patented unique monostem has two key benefits:

1

Allows the chair closer access for easier transfers

2

Allows for a very unobtrusive design, showing more you & less wheelchair
