Breeze – Wheelchair tandem / carrier
PLEASE NOTE – As of April 2017, this bike will be sold with the Shimano Steps Mid drive electric propulsion system installed as standard, this includes fully automatic Di2 gear shifting and the Alfine 8 speed hub gear unit. The battery is the Shimano 500Wh unit and can be mounted on a rear rack or in the frame. The automatic gears operate just like an automatic car, making it incredibly easy to ride – even for novices who have never used a bike with gears. The price has been adjusted accordingly to include the additional cost of this class leading motor system.
The Breeze is Boxer’s offering to the wheelchair tandem market.
As with all Boxer products our approach is different and focuses on the comfort and experience for the rider and their disabled occupant. The Breeze is also built to Boxer’s all aluminium standard utilising the same heavy duty front chassis as our ‘Maxi Cargo’ delivery bike.
With road legal electric power as standard at the price of a non electric wheelchair tandem the Breeze heralds a new way forward for buyers of these machines. We believe that electric power is essential for any wheelchair tandem, to have no power assistance would make for a very strenuous ride and the cycle being used less frequently. With its 250W motor and 500Wh lithium battery the Breeze is nippy and can quickly do the school run or head on journeys of 20 miles or there abouts with full electric assistance with a moderately fit rider pedalling.
Not only is the Breeze perhaps the best looking of the wheelchair tandems, it is also perhaps the most highly appointed with a superb range of built in and optional features to further maximise the riders enjoyment.
The Breeze comes as standard with 5 mounting points for the Unwin wheelchair restraint system (purchasable separately). This allows owners to use either three or four point mounting system dependant on the type of wheelchair being carried.
The Unwin restraints are quick release and allow the wheelchair to be pushed over them with no restriction of movement.
To add to the wheelchair restraint system, there is also a vehicle grade lap belt to keep the wheelchair occupant safe.
The Breeze benefits from a high degree of passenger protection from the elements with its high sides and front and rear panels, this also gives the wheelchair occupant the feeling of being ‘in’ something rather than ‘on’ something which is preferential for their sense of security. With the addition of a range of bright colours and candy metallic paintwork, the Breeze is guaranteed to bring a smile to faces. For that extra touch the wooden panels can be ‘wrapped’ in your artwork at extra cost.
The Breeze uses a simple locking two part ramp system which takes a few seconds to deploy and stow. Pushing the wheelchair on is easy.
Like its siblings, the Breeze has a pull out front bumper which can be used to mount walking aids or other equipment once the cycle has been loaded.
Optional extras for this model are the full length and height rain cover and Boxer’s vehicle grade lighting and road signalling package which makes riding this bike on the road with your precious cargo as safe as you can be.
The Breeze is designed to take an 18″ seat wheelchair and can be used with all wheelchair wheel layouts that we have seen.
