C2 – What a folding wheelchair should be.
Every little detail of the Helio was specifically optimized to help you go farther! Our wheelchair lets you minimize the risk of long-term shoulder and joint injuries by alleviating the energy needed to propel.
Whether you push it forward or lift it in the trunk of a car, the helio C2 gives you more freedom!
C2 – 26% lighter than the competition.
The Helio changed the way we see wheelchairs thanks to outstanding performance and unrivaled lightness. We are doing it again with the C2, lowering our own trend-setting weight by 10%! Fully equipped, the Helio C2 is strikingly lighter than the competition with a 9 pounds difference.
C2 – The lowest seat-to-floor height.
The innovative frame design of the Helio C2 lets you achieve a super low 13 ½” seat-to-floor height with a 4″ caster on a standard frame. That’s the same frame that can go up to 21″!
C2 – Get more mileage out of your energy.
Everybody benefits from an easier to propel wheelchair. Featuring an entirely symmetrical carbon fiber crossbrace, oval shaped tubes and oversized pivot axles, our unique Ultrarigid Folding System (UFS) maximizes frame rigidity and energy conservation.
High-Modulus Carbon T700 – The lightest and most rigid material available, also renowned for its vibration dampening properties.
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 Molded Crossbrace 3D – Entirely symmetrical carbon fiber crossbrace for reduced torsion and a better distribution of forces throughout the frame.
Ultrarigid Folding System – Extremely precise tolerances and oversized pivot axles for best-in-class propulsion efficiency.
Forged Vertical Axleplate + – Offers the most precise rear wheel adjustability of the industry. The vertical mounting maximizes rigidity and responsiveness.
Evolve caster housing – Imbedded inside the frame for rock solid durability, the Evolve Caster Housing offers easy and precise infinite adjustments.
Newton Accessories – The whole range of newton accessories are designed to be light and offer improved functionalities.
