A high-quality build with class leading design and manufacture, with its clever detachable frame design, the DE08L separates into 2 sections with the heaviest part just 15.5kg, including the battery. Yet it retains the classic sturdiness of Freedom Chairs allowing active users up to 160kg to drive on uneven surfaces such as gravel, grass and cobblestones. The front wheels are fitted with springs for handling uneven surfaces and suspension.
The Freedom chair DE08L has integrated anti-tip features and dual battery for a range of up to 27 miles as well as being easily foldable in seconds and cleverly separate into two manageable parts. The lightweight aluminum frame makes packing away easy, with the storage required in small spaces such as apartments and cruise ship cabins being minimal.
Weighing 15kg in two separate sections, it is still a powerful chair with 2 x 250w brushless motors with electromagnetic breaking. It is areophane ready, with built in safety: there are on board anti slip wheels with shock – absorbers.
This power chair has up to rechargeable lithium- ion batteries, meaning 3x the power and range as well as an adaptor cable included for off-board charging.
It is highly maneuverable: it turns on its own axis making it easier to use than a mobility scooter in restricted areas such as retail spaces and lifts. The steering with the joystick is intuitive and can be left or right-hand.
The electromagnetic brakes automatically hold you on a hill as soon as the joystick is released. Motors can be set to a free wheel – allowing the chair to be manually pushed by an attendant if required.
There are flip up arm rests to make side transfers in and out of your seat as well as being useful for clearing the joystick when drawing up to tables. The joystick has a USB port and LED light, meaning you can top up your smart phone on the move. This is particularly handy when using battery draining navigation apps. The LED light can be turned on to light dark paths ahead.
There is on board storage including an under-seat bag and a useful seat back compartment. Included is a durable travel bag to protect the chair, with a hand to allow rolling it along when in freewheel mode.
