Three wheels are better than four
Did you know that a three-sided structure is stronger than a four-sided structure? This is because the force is better distributed across all sides. Our three-wheel drive system ensures your body weight is distributed evenly across all wheels, improving both stability and traction, especially on uneven surfaces.
All terrain by design
Putting the big wheels at the front allows the Trekinetic GTE to cope with pretty much any terrain you can throw at it, be it on or off-road. It’s perfectly at home over mud, sand, snow and gravel, but is also versatile enough to use around town making light work of cobbles and cracked pavements. This means less time staring at the floor and more time enjoying the view.
Just like Formula 1, lighter is always better. The Trekinetic GTE weighs in at just 34 kg (including the battery), making it one of the lightest all terrain power chairs on the planet. This makes it incredibly easy to manoeuvre and much more simple to transport than a traditional powerchair.
Engineered for versatility
Off-road stability requires a wider wheelbase. Indoor practicality requires a narrow wheelbase. Our patented Varicam system allows you to change the angle of the wheels by simply turning a bar under the seat. 0-16 degrees in 10 seconds. Zero tools required.
A comfortable ride
Trekinetic’s patented rear shock absorber ensures a smooth ride every time, by soaking up any uncomfortable cobbles, cracks, lumps and bumps you might encounter on your journey.
Carbon fibre is the new black
Like most modern vehicles, Trekinetic has done away with the traditional metal chassis and replaced it with a super lightweight carbon fibre monocoque chassis. This reduces the weight of the chair, whilst keeping it strong and results in a seat that more closely resembles the human form. This typically means less padding and more support
Versatile hybrid design
The GTE power chair is one of the only all-terrain power chairs on the market that can also be operated as a manual chair. Simply flip the levers beside the front wheels to change from power to manual and back again.
Power, but not as you know it
The GTE’s power comes directly from two 24V 120W motors in the front wheels, delivering up to 6 km/h – making it perfect for use on pavements or any other type of terrain. This also means that removing the wheels reduces the weight of the main seat so you can load it into a vehicle one piece at a time.
Our front wheel drive system also means that your back is fully supported if you switch to manual mode and self-propel. This means you don’t have to push as hard to create the same force. A bit like a weightlifter. It’s easier when your back is fully supported.
The highly configurable joystick can be mounted in various positions and has 5 speeds for maximum control. It also has a USB charging point at the front, ideal for charging your phone.
Easy to transport
The Trekinetic GTE was designed to fold down and fit into a regular car. It’ll fit into a small SUV with the wheels still on, alternatively the front wheels come off with the simple click of a button and the rear castor folds down behind the seat.
For those that need to stay in their chair whilst in a vehicle, the Trekinetic GTE is crash tested to ISO 7176-19 when using the Trekinetic 5-Point Vehicle Restraint System.
