The Veloce Carbon Fiber Ultralightweight Wheelchair by Motion Composites is designed with your active lifestyle in mind. Featuring a high-performance, ultralight carbon Mantis frame, hybrid rigid-folding design and a streamlined, sophisticated look, you’ll be going farther and faster in style with the Veloce.

What makes this different?

The Veloce’s ultra-lightweight frame is comprised of high-modulus T700 carbon fiber, which is the lightest in the industry. The high-performance carbon fiber allows for high specificity in every inch of the chair, ensuring rigidity in curves and contours. The Veloce’s frame construction easily absorbs vibrations, giving you a smoother ride than other ultralightweight wheelchairs. Coming in three crisp accent colors on the chair’s leg rests, the Veloce can match your style.

Why do we like it?

The unique Mantis frame of the Veloce synthesizes a boxed frame design in the back for enhanced cross-brace rigidity with a cantilever frame in the front, providing you with a sleek, high-end look. The high adjustability and customization ensure you get a chair designed for you. The Veloce’s Ultrarigid Folding System provides you with the performance and durability of ultralightweight rigid chairs while ensuring the sleekness and ease of portability of typical folding chairs. The 17.6-pound starting weight and 11-pound transport weight of the Veloce ensure your chair is easily handled, both in the chair and when toting it around in your car.

Adding to the overall luxe feel of the Veloce is the array of Motion Composites’ Newton Accessories, which include Newton One spoke wheels and Newton Gravity ultralight wheels.

Product Features

One of the lightest folding wheelchairs in the world.

The Veloce is the most technologically advanced wheelchair for active users. It redefines what a wheelchair should be by offering unrivalled lightness, rigidity and responsiveness while retaining the all-important benefits of a compact folding system. With a transport weight of only 11.98 lbs. (5.43 kg), it feels like a Formula 1 but fits in the trunk of a Mini.

The unique Mantis frames.

Our engineers have created an entirely new type of wheelchair construction, inspired by the rigidity of box frames and the look and ride of cantilever frames. The result is a closed frame in the back to fit our ultra-rigid folding system with a minimalist front end. You get a full menu of configuration possibilities, along with outstanding aesthetics.

Get more mileage out of your energy.

Our engineers have optimized every detail of the Veloce to help you go farther and with greater efficiency. The symmetrical melded cross brace and oversized pivot axles work in concert, while our unique ultra-rigid Folding System maximizes frame rigidity and responsiveness.

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 slope and centre of gravity. Most of the lightweight options offered with our Helio line of wheelchairs are also compatible with the Veloce for true customization.

Head-turning design.

With its spirited Mantis frame, signature triangular tubing and carbon fibre finish featuring colour highlights, the Veloce is truly a feast for the eyes.
