It is an innovative folding wheelchair made of carbon fiber materials. The design is aimed at improving the quality of life for those who are young and active but disabled. Users can easily ride with it to reach their own vehicles, mass transportation systems and so on without too much hassle because it is 50% lighter than the current folding wheelchairs in the market. Owing to the nature of the carbon fiber material and the processing technology, this carbon wheelchair can be designed and built better under both aspects, ergonomically and esthetically. The riding quality, smooth, shock-absorbing, quiet and agile is also the great advantage of this wheelchair.
