A fresh breeze in your life: The Blizzard is here! This brand new rigid-frame active wheelchair is capable of braving any storm and meets all challenges with you!

It is also perfect as a traveling companion, since the back rest can be folded down on top of the seat in just a few easy steps so that the Blizzard has a convenient size.

Primary Benefit: You do not have to do anything with the side panels, because they automatically retract into the frame when the back rest is folded down. You can then quickly and easily load the Blizzard with one hand.

With its sporty, elegant design, the Blizzard won the red dot design award for high design quality. In addition, the Blizzard offers all the beneits of a wheelchair for active use: optimal handling, a compact folding size for easy loading, and a precisely adjustable centre of gravity. With its broad range of options, the Blizzard is mainly intended for active people who demand an attractive and dynamic wheelchair. For example, the Blizzard can be equipped with a wheelbase extension for integration with a hand bike.

The Blizzard has a great profile. It is dominated by the side panels that protect the driver against debris and cold while providing secure support. The side panels and clothing protectors are integrated so that they do not have to be folded down or removed for loading. When the back rest is folded down, the side panels slide down next to the seat tubes – and slide back up just as easily when the back rest is folded up.

The side panel position is simple to adjust using an eye-catching eccentric disk. Just loosen the screw, set the desired position, and tighten – finished. The height-adjustable folding arm rests are either integrated into the side panels or independently mounted to the seat tube.

The right wheel locks are essential. Especially for sporty drivers. The Blizzard knee lever wheel lock is easy to handle and highly effective. The performance wheel lock combines elegance and functionality. When the wheel lock is not in use, the brake block swings down elegantly so that it does not interfere with wheelchair operation. When the wheel lock is activated, the brake block is instantly back where it needs to be.

The S-type wheel lock or scissor wheel lock always stays below the seat surface; this makes it possible for paraplegics to brake safely without any interfering structures in the wheel area. No matter which design you decide to go with, you can always stop safely.
