The Quickie Q50 R Carbon Lightweight Folding Powerchair
Whatever your destination, the Quickie Q50 R Carbon is your perfect travelling partner. Weighing a mere 14.5 kg (without batteries) and fabricated from premium carbon fibre, take a load off your mind (and your arms) knowing that this is an effortless powerchair to lift. Foldable in seconds, it stores snugly away in the tightest of places – and all without removing the battery. Plus, it packs the robust and reliable QUICKIE performance to get you from A-B (or even A-Z with its extended 24 km range). And with 5 eye catching accent colours, why not bring a touch of style to wherever you go too?
DESIGN: Carbon. Light, But Incredibly Strong. In fact, some of the lightest things on Earth are made of it, including the Q50 R Carbon. Completely alluring. Completely arresting. And weighing just 14.5 kg, its shock value is more than skin deep. Its carbon frame can naturally flex over uneven surfaces, providing unique shock-absorbing characteristics to deliver one of the smoothest, most efficient rides around.
TRANSPORTATION: Travels In Spaces (and to places) Others Can’t. The Q50 R Carbon folds so ridiculously compact, it fits almost anywhere! Take the train, hop on a plane or store away in the boot of the smallest car – it’s perfect for exploring places, near or far. Incredibly light, it’s a breeze to lift in and out too.
EFFORTLESSLY SIMPLE FOLDING: There’s no troublesome mechanisms – just (1) flip up the clip at the back and (2) push the backrest downwards to fold the Q50 R Carbon. You don’t even need to remove the battery. How simple is that?
STANDARD TRANSPORT STRAP: Fed up with your power wheelchair un-folding whilst lifting? With the Q50 R Carbon’s standard transport strap, your Q50 R Carbon is kept tightly folded, preventing any troublesome lifting problems
POWER OPTIONS: Go Further With 24 KM Extended Range. Leave the car at home and enjoy up to 12 km range with the Q50 R Carbon’s 10Ah lithium-Ion battery. Looking to go further? Its additional battery slot allows you to bring an (optional) second battery along for the ride to double your range to up to 24 km!
CHARGE EVEN WHEN FOLDED: Because you don’t need to remove the battery when folding your Q50 R Carbon, it can also be conveniently charged via the socket on the controller.
IATA APPROVED* FOR AIR TRAVEL: Looking to travel abroad? The Q50 R Carbon’s Lithium-Ion battery is IATA approved* (International Air Transport Association) for transportation by aircraft.
* Individual airlines have differing requirements relative to transport of products with Li-Ion batteries. Prior to arranging any air travel with the wheelchair, please confirm with your airline or carrier that they accept battery-powered vehicles under UN classification: UN3171. Please refer to the owners manual for further details.
DAYTIME RUNNING LIGHT: Be seen during the day or at night with this superbright running light. Activating whenever your Q50 R Carbon is in motion, it’ll increase your visibility and awareness to others around you.
PERFORMANCE: And It’s Just As Compact Unfolded. Compact and streetwise, the Q50 R Carbon is ready for any situation. Whether it’s a narrow hallway, lively shopping mall or manoeuvring into the challenging last space on public transport, the Q50 R Carbon packs the power (but with none of the size) to tackle everyday life.
TURNING RADIUS: Unlike a mobility scooter, the Q50 R Carbon has a small 800 mm turning radius, making it ideal for indoor environments. Effortlessly turn in narrow hallways, kitchens, and other restricted spaces without the need for complicated manoeuvres.
MAKE YOURSELF COMFORTABLE: The ultra-lightweight backrest doesn’t just keep you comfortable, its breathable upholstery allows body heat to pass through, keeping you cool and dry. Available as standard, its 30 mm thick foam cushion also keeps you comfy on those longer trips.
EASY TRANSFERS: Easily side transfer in-and-out of your Q50 R Carbon by flipping the armrests upwards. Prefer to transfer standing? The centre-mount footrest conveniently flips upwards to give you all the space you need.
RELIABILITY: Light On Weight, Heavy On Reliability. For over 40 years, we’ve been working alongside world class manufacturers to deliver solidly built powerchairs that have the very-best driving performance, motors, range, and reliability that others just can’t match.
STYLE: The Finishing Touch. With its elegant carbon fibre frame, the Q50 R Carbon is a real centrefold. So why don’t you really get heads turning with a selection of 5 accent colours? Blue, Orange, Purple, Red and Yellow.
