Motion Composites Helio C2 Folding Manual Wheelchair

The Motion Composites Helio C2 is one of the lightest, most technologically advanced wheelchairs in its category. The Helio C2 is the result of a series of innovations, it features revolutionary components, an impeccable finish and all the advantages carbon fiber offers.

Motion Composite’s vision for the Helio C2 was significantly reduced weight and greater freedom of movement. Each component was carefully selected and carbon fiber was used for strength and lightness. The result is greater mobility as well as reduced chronic shoulder and joint injuries. The symmetrical cross brace and rigid unibody frame distribute forces equally throughout the frame for superior energy transfer and propulsion. The unique Ultrarigid Folding system (UFS) maximizes the chair’s overall stability, while the vertical axle plates increase rear wheel stiffness for optimal energy efficiency.

Save your energy to go further

The symmetrical cross brace and rigid unibody frame distribute forces equally throughout the frame for superior energy transfer and propulsion. The unique Ultrarigid Folding system (UFS) maximises the chair’s overall stability, while the vertical axle plates increase rear wheel stiffness for optimal energy efficiency.

Optimal seat to floor height
The frame’s innovative design allows you to achieve a super-low 12-inch (30.5-cm) front seat-to-floor height. In addition to easier contact with the floor, this feature provides better foot propulsion. Or, move it beyond 20 inches (50.8 cm) to meet your most challenging needs.
Uncompromising reliability
Because carbon fiber is both very strong and very light, it is an ideal material for making wheelchairs. It also has superior fatigue resistance and can withstand extreme temperatures. This ensures exceptional durability, for a chair that will serve you for many years to come.

Technologies:

T700 High Tensile Strength Carbon Fiber
One of the lightest and sturdiest material available, also renowned for its vibration damping properties.
Rigid Unibody Frame

A unibody frame is much stronger and requires less maintenance than a standard two part frame. It also reduces weight while maximising propulsion efficiency.

Symmetrical Moulded Crossbrace

Entirely symmetrical carbon fiber cross brace for reduced torsion and better energy distribution throughout the frame.

Ultrarigid Folding System

High-precision tolerances and oversized pivot axles for best-in-class propulsion efficiency.

Forged Vertical Access Plate

Offers the industry’s most precise rear wheel adjustability. The vertical mounting maximises stability and responsiveness.

Evolved Castor Housing
Integrated into the frame for rock-solid durability, the Evolve caster housing offers easy and precise infinite adjustments.
Anti-Flutter System
Minimise flutter with a simple twist of a screw. Provides a smooth, more efficient ride.
Newton Accessories

Parts and accessories are designed to be lighter with improved functionality.
