Long-haul getaways. Family breaks. The daily commute. Whatever your destination, the 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 too (and all without removing the battery). Ready to go out? The Q50 R Carbon packs the robust, reliable QUICKIE performance to get you from A-B (or even A-Z, thanks to its extended 24 km range). And with 5 eye-catching accent colours, you'll bring a touch of style to wherever you go too.
Carbon fibre. Light, but incredibly strong. In fact, some of the lightest things on Earth are made of it, including the Q50 R Carbon - one of the world’s lightest carbon folding powerchairs. Completely alluring. Completely arresting. And weighing just 14.5 kg, its shock value is more than skin deep. The carbon frame can naturally flex over uneven surfaces, providing unique shock-absorbing characteristics to deliver one of the smoothest, most efficient rides around.
At just 14.5 kg, the Q50 R Carbon weighs less than other carbon folding powerchairs, but thanks to its incredibly strong carbon fibre design, it can also support a larger user weight of up to 136 kg.
The ultra-lightweight foam cushion and backrest upholstery doesn't just keep you comfortable, it also has a breathable cover that allows body heat to pass through, keeping you cool and dry on those longer trips.
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.
Vacation without a bulky powerchair? The Q50 R Carbon folds so ridiculously compact when folded (370 mm length x 570 mm width x 767 mm height), it can fit just about anywhere! Take the train, hop on the bus or store away in the boot of the smallest car – it’s perfect for exploring places, near or far. Ridiculously light, it’s also a breeze to lift in and out too.
There's no troublesome mechanisms - just flip-up the clip at the back, fold the footplate and push the backrest downwards to fold the Q50 R Carbon straight to the floor. You don't even need to remove the battery. For extra security, the (standard) transport strap ensures your Q50 R Carbon is kept tightly folded whilst lifting.
When folded, the Q50 R Carbon is so compact, it can be easily stored away in the porch, underneath the stairs or in the boot of the car. Thanks to its rear anti-tips, it's easily moveable when standing upwards too.
Are you planning to travel internationally? You can take the Q50 R Carbon with you since its Lithium-Ion battery is approved by IATA (International Air Transport Association) for transportation on 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.
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. That’s why the Q50 R Carbon’s 250W high efficiency brushless motors provide the power and reliability you need from your powerchair (including climbing obstacles of up to 40 mm). Highly optimised, they’ll also deliver the very-best range from your batteries too.
Prefer to leave the car at home? Enjoy a range of up to 12 km with the Q50 R Carbon’s 10Ah lithium-Ion battery. If you’re looking to go further, its additional battery slot allows you to bring an (optional) second battery along for the ride too, doubling your range to up to 24 km!
You don't need your battery connected to your Q50 R Carbon to charge either. Just pop the battery out and charge it using the charging port on the side.
Intuitive to use, the established and reliable nVR2 BLDC brushless motor controller by the world-leading Curtiss-Wright Corporation responds precisely to your commands and also keeps track of remaning battery life too. Plus, because you don't need to remove the battery when folded, the Q50 R Carbon can be conveniently charged via the controller's charging socket too.
Be seen at night with this super-bright brake light for greater visibility and awareness to others around you.
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?
Due to limitations of screen displays, the colours reproduced may vary slightly from the actual paint colour or upholstery material. As a result it should be used as a guide only.
As a part of our ongoing product improvement initiative, Sunrise Medical reserves the right to change specifications and design without notice.
