New generation Firefly - take a test drive!

The new generation firefly 2.0 is now available throughout the UK and Ireland and for wheelchair users in Ireland ( north and south ) you can now take one for a test drive!

Our showroom is conveniently located just a few minutes from the Sprucefield / A1 / M1 junction and you can use the simple form below to request your test drive.

The new generation Firefly will be attached to one of our demonstration wheelchairs rather than being attached to yours.

This great wheelchair attachment turns your wheelchair into a powered trike and reaches speeds of up to 12.5 mph ( it is limited to 8 mph initially but this can be removed ).

There are a number of improvements with the new generation Firefly 2.0 including;

  • Changed from twist grip throttle with separate forward /reverse switch to individual forward and reverse thumb throttles making it easier for lefties and those who have limited wrist rotation.
  • Changed from a 4 point attachment system to a simpler quick release 2 point attachment which greatly speeds up the attachment and detachment from the wheelchair.
  • Improved dual disc and v breaking system
  • New Improved lighter weight Lithium battery pack
  • New improved frame design comes apart for transport and storage.

See how easy it is to attach and use in the video below;
