With the return of the long summer days, Vipamat is pleased to present its new options and the improvements of some existing ones. During the year, the team has worked to propose you a wheelchair umbrella, protecting from sun and wind, a wheelchair hood pack, protecting the user from wind and rain, a bag to carry the hippocampe wheelchair, and two bags to carry the balloon wheels of the Beach and All-terrain wheelchair and the 24 inches wheels of the Marathon and Trail wheelchair.
For walking and running
Originally designed for cycling with its asymmetrical shape for better aerodynamics, the Vipamat team has created an attachment to make the wheelchair umbrella compatible with the Hippocampe, allowing the wheelchair to be used in sun, rain and wind. The umbrella ribs are made from high quality materials such as fibreglass and stainless steel. This guarantees resistance to winds of up to 100 km/h. The high quality, tightly woven fabric protects you from the rain.
And the sun
For summer use, the wheelchair umbrella offers a protection factor of UPF50+, blocking 98% of UV rays.
Before going out or during a walk, the umbrella option can be oriented according to the sun’s rays. Thanks to the butterfly screw system, the sunshade can be repositioned and reoriented as required in just a few seconds.
Total weight of the option: 620 grams
