CARBON FIBRE TECHNOLOGY

The miracle material that makes CarbonBlack the most energy efficient manual wheelchair on the planet. The CarbonBlack gives users the ability to go further with less strain.

The CarbonBlack is unrivalled in maximising the use of carbon fibre technology, meaning there is no other chair like it.

Benefits:

  • Incredible strength to weight ratio: weighs from 5.5 kg including wheels and tyres. To prove our trust in carbon fibre, we give you a two-year warranty.
  • Unparalleled energy efficiency: we believe CarbonBlack 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 One be put in a lightweight wheelchair.

WHEELS

The CarbonBlack wheels have been purpose-designed to be the ultimate lightweight wheelchair wheels. The properties of carbon fibre mean that we have designed a wheel with great strength without the added weight. Our wheels are solid one-piece, 5-spoke carbon rims. They are 26” and weigh just an incredible 0.5kg 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.The Carbon Black wheels have been purpose designed to be the ultimate lightweight wheelchair wheels.

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 of you and less of the wheelchair.
