Travel lighter with QUICKIE's lightest folding power wheelchair – Q50 R Carbon

Wednesday, March 22, 2023

Sunrise Medical Group is proud to announce the launch of the QUICKIE Q50 R Carbon – QUICKIE`s lightest-ever folding power wheelchair with a transport weight of only 14.5 kg*. The folding Q50 R Carbon is easy to transport, store and manoeuvre, providing the perfect solution for people who want to remain active and independent without the worry of heavy and bulky equipment.

A true featherweight thanks to high performance carbon frame
A carbon fibre frame, magnesium wheels and motors, and breathable upholstery make the Q50 R Carbon truly lightweight. It’s effortless to lift for storage, extremely stylish, yet robust and durable. Additionally, carbon fibre technology provides unique shock-absorbing characteristics to deliver one of the smoothest, most efficient rides around.

World class no. 1 in the market Curtiss Wright controller for intuitive and precise control
The Q50 R Carbon comes with the world class intuitive and reliable Curtiss Wright nVR2 brushless joystick controller which responds precisely to commands and keeps track of remaining battery life too. It’s compact turning radius of only 800 mm means it can access crowded shops, snug restaurant spaces and tight home environments with ease.

Double your distance up to 24 km with the dual battery  
The Q50 R Carbon's dual battery provides a range of up to 24 km, offering peace of mind and independence. High torque 250w brushless magnesium cast motors are powerful to overcome varying indoor surfaces and bumps in the pavement – for any journey. Thanks to the IATA certification (24V Lithium-Ion battery), the Q50 R Carbon is also the ideal travel companion.**

A stylish space-saving wonder
The folding mechanism is incredibly simple and makes the Q50 R Carbon a true space-saving wonder. Once folded, the Q50 R Carbon can rest in the upright position on its anti-tips, making loading easy. The Q50 R Carbon’s compact profile fits easily into tight spaces or small car boots, and a standard transport strap ensures it remains folded when handling. An ergonomically shaped seat ensures users have a comfortable seating position, and breathable backrest material ensures comfort. A modern rear QUICKIE running light keeps the chair visible for safety during use. The Q50 R Carbon even has personalised style, with 5 accent colours.  

*15.85 kg with battery and accessories
