Product Overview

Allegro Medical Jet Powered Concept Wheelchair

Jet Powered Concept Wheelchair


The Jet Chair combines today’s advances in jet propulsion with modern wheelchair design to make a practical, general-purpose sub-sonic everyday chair. The wheelchair finally meets the jet age in this aggressively styled, “weekend warrior” -type chair. Perfectly at home in the Bonneville Salt Flats doing 400mph or cruising to the market, the Jet Chair offers something for everyone.

Designed at the famed Lockhood Martin “Skunk Works”, the jet powered wheelchair was initially developed as a high-speed ground-based escape pod for the legendary SR71 Blackbeard. With the close of the cold war and no apparent use for the jet powered wheelchair, Allegro Medical sought the rights to produce the jet chair. The deal crafted with the State Department allows for limited production of the jet powered wheelchair as a recreational use personal transportation device. The stripped down civilian version of the craft is notably missing rocket launchers and heat-seeking missiles.

Safety first. Always wear a helmet and fire-retardant underwear when operating a jet powered wheelchair. (Underwear sold separately).

Experimental aircraft restrictions apply.

Time out. We're kidding! This is NOT a real product. If you thought it was, please see me about a bridge I have for sale. We're merely showing this jazzed up wheelchair to let you know that you CAN make your wheelchair your own. Spiff it up, customize it! Short of adding a jet engine, you can beautify, functify and ratify your chair. Take a look at all of our amazing wheelchair accessories and start personalizing your chair today! Or, hey, upgrade your whole look with a brand new chair. We have plenty of those in our Wheelchair category. Take a peek.

I am considering having the motor replaced with a more powerful one as I seem to be late arriving wherever I go!

I had the chance to trial one of these chairs at the wheel chair expo in Dallas last weekend. This is an excellent concept, but there are a few notable flaws. First of all, as other reviewers have mentioned, anti-tip wheels would make it much easier to accelerate quickly without tipping backward. The chair handles well for open roads and long trips, but can be finicky in the market or in tight urban congestion. A lower-powered city mode would be a great benefit here (rumors have it that this will be available for next year's model). The seat is surprisingly comfortable with gel padding and lumbar support, but lacks height adjustment. While the chair's suspension is adequate, the steel frame appears somewhat thin for this application--it doesn't seem to pose a true safety risk, but tends to rattle and flex at high speeds. All in all this is a great chair, but I'd like to see some improved features and handling before putting down the money to own one of these. I still rate it four stars for the innovative concept. EDITOR'S NOTE: The manufacturer claims that the frame rattling issue has been addressed and the final release version features carbon fiber reinforcing throughout.

Got to get away?

Pros:
Beats wait at airports. High Quality. Good Value. Durable.

Tired of people starring at you? Well, give them something really to stare at and have them stand behind you when you're ready to take a spin so they end up with "more than" egg on their faces. You won't believe the smooth ride this chair provides and I'm taking mine for a jump over the snake river which would do the late "Evil Knievel" proud!One thing you've got to remember, keep your mouth closed while cruising. Unless you're into bugs that is!

Caregiver.

My grandmother had been feeling down lately, the friday night bingo just wasn't cutting it anymore. Concerned for her emotions and well being we decided to get this to her. [...]First off I must say that the chair is absolutely comfortable, and the engine isn't nearly as loud as others claim to be. You can hear your iPod on max if you have the afterburners turned on. Speed wise I found it a little lacking, and didn't pull quite the expected amount of Gs. Poor octane fuel possibly?The downside is that on the first (and subsequent) trial runs, my grandmother eagerly activated the engine to go whooshing off, only to be seen as a vanishing point on the horizon. Leaving us to spend the next few hours to find out where her fuel eventually died ran out. A tracking device should definately have been included. Furthermore while operating with the afterburners on, the angle of rotation is a mere 2 degrees per second. Clearly unacceptable for navigating tight traffic.But overall it's a good machine in spite of the shortcomings, would suggest buying this one or the XR version that should be coming out soon.

Front wheels too small Verified Reviewer

Pros:
Powerful Motor. Long Battery Life. Fast.
Cons:
Difficult to Control. Unstable.
Best Uses:
Long Trips.
Describe Yourself:
Long Term User.

When reaching speeds past 110 MPH, the front wheels would rattle back and forth causing a severe vibration in the seat. At 150. the vibration makes it difficult to steer and the brake handle won't catch. I selected the ejection seat option and used it once I realized I couldn't stop quickly enough at the intersection. Upon ejecting, I observed the safety features kick in cutting off the engine and the automatic drag chute came out stopping the chair at the intersection. As I floated to the ground, I steered the parachute and made a perfect landing right back into the seat! Next time I'll read the manual more carefully, but they need to do something about those rattling wheels!
