From frame to materials to componentry, every detail of the Helio C2 is optimized to help you go further. The Helio C2 is a carbon fiber upgrade from the Helio A7, with increased performance and an even lighter frame, the Helio C2 makes the same promise as ROWHEELS: gain mobility while reducing the risk of chronic shoulder and joint injuries. The prefitted REV-HX are our fastest manual wheels on the market. Using ROWHEELS patented technology, REV-HX wheels turn 30% faster than the handrim, resulting in an extremely responsive and quick set of wheels. The powerful mechanical advantage of combining the ultra-lightweight Helio C2 frame with the unique ROWHEELS pulling action makes mobility not only much easier but also healthier.
The lightest heavy-duty wheelchair in the world: By using an extra-large carbon fiber weave to reinforce the crossbrace, the maximum weight capacity is significantly increased while adding minimal weight to the chair. The frame can handle up to 350 lb (159 kg) with only a 6-oz. (176 g) weight increase over the standard Helio C2 – it’s heavy duty without being heavy. Plus, being ultra-lightweight means you use less energy when propelling.
Say goodbye to aches and pains: REV-HX wheels reduce the stresses and strains imposed on shoulders, elbows and wrists by traditional wheelchairs as the unique rowing action uses different muscle groups, resulting in significantly less discomfort. Travelling up inclines, across carpets or through uneven terrain is no problem using REV-HX wheels.
Your independence is important: REV-HX can keep you mobile and active without having to rely on powered wheelchair alternatives due to the unique therapeutic design of the REV-HX wheels, while the Helio C2 gives you the option to fully adjust your chair to suit your needs. The innovative frame design lets you achieve a super low 13” (33 cm) seat-to-floor height with a 3” caster on a standard frame. That same frame can go up to 21 1/2’’ (54.6cm).
Better design for better mobility: With superior fatigue resistance, extreme temperature tolerances and vibration damping, carbon fiber one of the strongest yet lightest materials on earth. Even an ultra-lightweight carbon fiber frame can get weighed down without the right components. That’s why every single accessory, bolt and bracket of the Helio C2 is designed with weight reduction in mind. From the Flip-Back Convertible Armrests to the forged aluminum axle plate, lightness is a top priority.
Designed by the best, for the best: REV-HX features an award-winning design by a NASA engineer, now combined with the unrivaled performance of the ultra-lightweight Helio C2 – whether you are an athlete looking to train and exercise or a wheelchair user looking to relieve upper limb discomfort, improve your posture, gain stamina and build upper body strength, this chair races to the top of its class for simple, efficient and durable design.
