 To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Joëlette, we are launching a special “black edition”.

For 30 years now, the Joëlette has allowed many disabled people to face great challenges, climb summits, discover the beauty of natural spaces or feel the emotion of sport competition.

Since the creation of the artisanal model in 1988, FERRIOL-MATRAT has brought many modifications to the Joëlette to make it more modular, comfortable and secure.


Zoom stickers Joëlette black edition Zoom stickers Joëlette black edition

Our three new generation models, classic one-wheeled Joëlette, Joëlette TWIN and e-Joëlette are now matte black. 

There is still an “orange touch” on the cushions and on our new trendy stickers !



This new colour is accompanied by some changes on the options and new accessories. 


We have made modifications on the passenger belt and harness. The original belt has an improved magnetic locking system.

On this belt, you have the possibility to add 2 removable straps to form a 4 point harness. These straps will be attached at the back of the backrest.


We have removed the headrest as standard equipment. Now you can buy it as an option if the passenger needs a better head support.



We are proposing a pair of advertising supports to be placed inside the Joëlette arms (in matte black PVC, with fixing system included).

You can put your own sticker or ask us to print the sticker for you (in option).

This will enable to highlight the logo/name of your association, organisations or even sponsors.


You can also buy bottles “Joëlette and Co” with their support to be put on the Joëlette’s handle.



The price of the “Black edition” remains the same.

Do feel free to contact us to get more information or our complete price list !

In order to promote the Joëlette in Germany, we went to two events, one in Berlin and one in the countryside of Palatinate.


Each year, Berlin’s Johannesstift organises the Run of Spirit. This year more than 3000 runners participated in different runs :  starting from 400 m up to 10 km distances. “Sports for all”, once again, was this year’s motto. Handicapped and non-handicapped persons, different religions and nationalities. Runners besides people in a wheelchairs, walkers together with blind people, runs for families and friends having all a lot of fun together.

The Joëlette was used by the sportsclub “Inklusiv” of the Johannesstift, in order to promote the idea of sports for all.


The Natursportopening 2015 on April 26th marked the new outdoor season at the center of nature in Palatinat in the region of Rhineland-Palatinate in Germany. Several activities such as runs of different length, nordic walking or even tai-chi were proposed to the public.

Several visitors used the opportunity to have a test ride on the Joëlette or the Joëlette Twin.
