The lightest folding wheelchair in the world
The Veloce is the most technologically advanced wheelchair for active users. It redefines what a wheelchair should be by offering unrivaled lightness, rigidity and responsiveness while keeping the important advantage of a compact folding system. With a total weight starting at 8.0 kg and a transport weight of only 5.1 kg, it feels like a Formula 1 but fits in the trunk of a Mini.
Adjustability without the weight
The Veloce is completely adjustable for a perfect fit. You can easily adjust front and rear seat-to-floor heights, seat angle, center of gravity and frame angle. All of the options offered on our line of wheelchairs are also compatible with the Veloce for true customization.in the trunk of a Mini.
Get more mileage out of your energy
Every little detail of the Veloce was specifically optimized to help you go farther. Featuring an entirely symmetrical carbon fiber crossbrace, oval shaped tubes and oversized pivot axles, our unique Ultrarigid Folding System (UFS) maximizes frame rigidity and responsiveness.
With its spirited Mantis frame, signature triangular tube shape and full carbon fiber finish with color highlights, the Veloce is truly a feast for the senses. It also comes standard with one-sided forks for an added sense of flair.
Introducing the mantis frame
It’s an entirely new type of wheelchair construction inspired by the rigidity of box frames and the look and lightness of cantilever frames. The result is a closed frame in the back to fit our UFS (Ultrarigid Folding System) and a minimalist front end offering full configuration possibilities
Mantis frame - Fusion of a boxed frame in the back for enhanced crossbrace rigidity and cantilever frame in the front for a minimalist look.
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 Adjustable Axleplate - Offers the most precise rear wheel adjustability of the industry. The vertical mounting maximizes rigidity and responsiveness.
V Shaped Stem - Stylised stem that offers more than looks. It provides precise seat-to-floor and angle adjustments of the front wheel.
