Joëlette TWIN with two wheels for more stability
The Joëlette TWIN for hiking or running on passable and flat terrains.
Push the limits with the Joëlette!
The Joëlette TWIN is an all-terrain two-wheeled chair that enables any people with reduced mobility or disability, children or adult, to get involved in hiking excursions or running activities with the help of at least two guides.
Just like the one-wheeled Joëlette, it is manoeuvred by two guides, one in the back who handles the balance and one in the front who controls the traction and gives the direction.
The lateral balance makes this model more stable and easier to handle. It is ideal for running or hiking excursions on rolling terrains (greenways, asphalt, passable tracks… The pantograph, a patented trim correction system, enables to overcome obstacles like holes, bumps, roots and slight cross-slopes. A removable third jockey wheel brings extra balance.
Especially designed for family outings, but also for more intense sports and recreation, the Joëlette TWIN enables the access to many outdoor terrains so far inaccessible with a classic wheelchair.
With the Joëlette TWIN, enjoy sport and nature all together:
• Share outdoor activities with family, friends, associations…
• Enjoy life together with strolls, hikes and change of scenery.
• Push the boundaries of possibility and surpass yourself with sporting and human challenges
• Discover the nature and new landscapes (mountains, natural parks, forests, trips abroad…)
• Participate in races, marathons and adventure racing…
• Discover your natural, historical and cultural heritage.
Two types of practice with the Joëlette TWIN
Walks and hikes
The Joëlette TWIN lets you share nice strolls with your family and friends on less difficult grounds.
Should you wish to have access to all type of terrains, you could use the one-wheeled Joëlette or the E-Joëlette with electrical assistance..
Runs, marathons, half-marathons
There are now countless sporting challenges organized with the Joëlette such as the World championship of Joëlette, the Belgian criterium and the participation to the most famous marathons such as Montréal, Paris, New York, Sydney, and Stockholm… These initiatives enable disabled people to live the adventure of races and other sport competitions.
The Joëlette TWIN is especially adapted to this kind of activities since keeping the balance is very easy due to the two wheels. The runners take turns more easily.

“I use the Joëlette TWIN with untrained groups who are not familiar with the use of the classic one-wheel version of the Joëlette, always making sure that it will only be used on adapted terrains, that is to say on small open trails, free of stones and slightly inclined laterally. Both, passengers and guides found the Joëlette Twin quite comfortable and easy to use because it doesn’t need particular attention for keeping the balance. Indeed, the lateral balance of the Joëlette TWIN really reassures the two guides. They can concentrate on the back and front balance which is essential in order not to get tired as well as to the comfort of the passenger. On the other hand, a small intersection of salient stones might be sufficient to block the TWIN so that we are obliged to carry it. Therefore, it is necessary to examine the trip beforehand to make sure this kind of situation does not occur. Indeed, it is possible to carry the vehicle in case there are stoned sections but should there be too many, the in “Joëlette twin” becomes more of an obstacle than a support compared to the standard model. You just need to choose the adequate version, single or double wheeled, according to the type of excursions."
Leonardo Paleari – Il cammino Possibile
"This year we have used the Joëlette TWIN as a group during a race but also during hiking excursions in the mountains or hills. We practiced on all kind of terrains: asphalt, stone paths, earth grounds, grass, rocks, mud and sometimes snow. Last year, we notably participated to the “Mezza Maratona del Brenta ». We use the Joëlette in particular with Daniel “Lele”Marcon. He is tetraplegic because of Multiple Sclerosis. He is able to sit on the Joëlette during two hours and finds it quite comfortable. It allows us to change the guides even without having to stop during the races. We also explored very very difficult trails and we had to be seven or more to push while climbing!”
Giuseppe Padovan Italy
"Every two years, we use the Joëlette during a 17 days pilgrimage on the way of Saint James. We have a Joëlette Twin for touring on suitable ways, green paths and roads with slight inclinations as well as asphalt roads. It is more comfortable for the passenger and easier to handle. In particular, for tor female assistants located in the back who realized that keeping balance is easier due to the jockey wheel demanding less efforts. Inclinations are well equalized, stability and handiness are easier. On paths which are in good condition, the Joëlette TWIN can be handled by only one guide."
Association St James’ friends France
In general, we use the Joëlette Twin on asphalt during our 10 km races. The passenger is more at ease and assured due to the better balance. He just needs to get used to fact that the Joëlette bends in curves. Compared to the single-wheeled chair, there is a higher facility to keep the balance and it is quite more comfortable when using it on asphalt By the way, curves should be taken with a higher range than with the single-wheeled one." "We use our Joëlette Twin for walks and races.
“WALLOON FEDERATION of Sport for Disabled people” Belgium
It is comfortable and reassuring to the passenger and easy to pilot. Compared to the single wheel one, the Twin gives more stability and balance and it is also easier to find guides. On the other hand, there is a lesser choice of possible routes since you need to find larger paths and also it is more difficult to transport in a car because you can’t remove the wheels."
