Which wheel size

8.5″ – City Companion

Fitted with a 8.5“ solid drive wheel this smaller front wheel allows it to have a compact turning circle for improved indoor manoeuvrability and makes it easier to transfer into the boot and store.
This F55 may be small in size, but it still boasts great capabilities both indoor  and outdoor in urban terrains.

14″ Drive Wheel – Greater Outdoor Performance

Do you want a power add-on bike to get around the office but also able to ride there? This F55 has a small
footprint to navigate indoor environments combined with the traction, power and ride comfort to get you
there! Even while taking shortcuts through the parks and canals, the 14“ Empulse F55 is a power add-on bike
for urban outdoor terrains.

Easy to transport
A dismantled weight of just 9kg combined with a flip up sub frame makes it a compact package for easy handling and storage in even small cars.
The F55 is also approved for transportation on aeroplanes and ships saving your energy while on holiday for the activities that you want to do!

Easy drive controls
Complete with a very high specification as standard, the F55’s range of controls are here to make your driving experience as easy as possible.
Fitted with as standard a clear LCD display, cruise control for those longer journeys, forward and reverse to navigate out of a tight spot and a smooth electric brake for a controlled stop.

The Empulse fits a wide range of chairs. See our Empulse F55 Compatibility Guide


Questions and Answer

How can I transport the F55 in a car? 

Thanks to the flip up sub frame, the F55’s pack size can be minimised within seconds: flip the frame, insert the steering tube and you will get a handy package that can be stowed away easily. If necessary, the sub frame and also the battery can even be fully detached.

How do you store the battery correctly (e.g. over winter)?

Store the battery in a dry, cool place at around 10 to 15 degrees. Ideally, the battery should be kept at a state of charge of roughly 75%. If it is stored for too long with little charge, the voltage inside drops so drastically that a deep discharge can occur, which permanently damages the battery.

How fast can I go with the F55?

Max. speed forward is 6 kph. Optional available is 10 kph or 15 kph.
Using the F55 with max. speed-settings higher than 6 kph is only permitted on public roads in certain countries and otherwise may only be used on private property.
In the absence of approval (attached to the Order Form and must be signed before order), in accordance with the road traffic laws, the F55 with speed >6 kph may not be driven on public roads, bicycle-lanes and pavements. You need to inform yourself about the country specific legislation regarding usage and your legal obligation to insure the F55 speed settings higher than 6 kph (10/15 kph). When you’re travelling with your F55, always check the specific legislation in the respective country.

To which wheelchairs does the F55 fit?

The F55 easily fits most manual folding and rigid wheelchairs. Please refer to the Compatibility Guide on the Sunrise Medical website. The Compatibility Guide indicates all chairs for which a Combination agreement exist. The list is an indication of wheelchair models the F55 can be mounted on. Please see also the section “Docking Information” in the Compatibility Guide. Here you  find even more information about what requirements have to be met to attach the F55 to your wheelchair. Frame shape, CoG, wheel-size and seat-depth are of influence. Additionally, a straight section of the frame tube of at least 35 mm is also necessary for the attachment of the clamps. Therefore it is essential to try and test it to be 100% sure! Or ask your supplier for advice.

Where can I drive the F55 pull device?

The F55 is a small, versatile, very manoeuvrable and transportable pulling device that is intended for in- and outdoor usage. The 14″ shows better offroad capability, whilst the 8.5″ version provides a very small turning circle in- and outdoor.

Which pulling device is the right one for me?

The model with the 14″ wheel provides you a better ride comfort, more stability at high speed and an unbeatable offroad-capability that allows you to tackle almost every terrain. If you prefer the smallest pack size and greatest manoeuvrability, the version with the 8.5″ is your choice. One thing is common to both: A carefree driving fun!
