Sunrise Medical is proud to announce the launch of the QUICKIE Q50 R Carbon – QUICKIE's lightest folding power wheelchair with a transport weight of only 32 lbs. The folding Q50 R Carbon is easy to transport, store, and maneuver, providing the perfect solution for people who want to remain active and independent without the burden of a heavy and large mobility device.

A carbon fiber frame, magnesium wheels and motors, and breathable upholstery make the Q50 R Carbon lightweight. Though light, it's incredibly strong and has a weight capacity of 300 lbs. The premium materials provide a sleek modern design and can be personalized with five accent colors.

The Q50 R Carbon's dual battery provides a range of up to 15 miles, offering peace of mind and independence. High torque 250W brushless magnesium cast motors are powerful enough to overcome varying indoor surfaces and bumps in the pavement - for any journey. Intuitive to use, the brushless motor controller responds to commands and shows the remaining battery life.

The folding mechanism is incredibly simple and makes the Q50 R Carbon a true space-saving wonder. Once folded, the Q50 R Carbon can rest upright on its anti-tips, making loading easy. The Q50 R Carbon's compact profile fits easily into tight spaces or small car trunks, and a standard transport strap ensures it remains folded while handling.

To ensure the Q50 R Carbon power wheelchair meets Sunrise Medical's high standards, we conduct vigorous end-of-line testing which demonstrates our commitment to delivering a reliable and quality QUICKIE wheelchair.

"The Q50 R Carbon is ideal for so many people who want to be more independent and travel further," said Jeff Rogers, Director of Power Product Management at Sunrise Medical. "This chair is a great alternative to a scooter, as it is easier to transport, more maneuverable, and simpler to stow. It is also a great second chair for some manual chair riders who would like the power to go further and some power chair riders who want a chair that is easier for travel."

The Q50 R Carbon comes standard with rear running lights, storage for a second battery, and a transport strap, providing added convenience without the need for additional purchases. It also boasts a lithium-ion battery that is IATA-approved for safe transportation by aircraft*. With its lightweight, remarkable style, and exceptional durability, the Q50 R Carbon stands as a testament to Sunrise Medical's commitment to delivering cutting-edge products.

* Individual airlines have differing requirements relative to the transport of products with lithium-ion batteries. Before arranging 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 owner's manual for further details.
