The Salsa R² incorporates a great indoor and outdoor performance. Indoors the compact base and low seat to floor height (starting from 42cm) ensures easy access under tables. Outdoors the adjustable suspension and powerful motors (2-pole or 4-pole) always offer a comfortable and active driving characteristic up to a speed of 10 kph. With simple access to the batteries from the rear they can be easily changed while the user is in the chair.
Fully adjustable seating system
The Salsa R2 is equipped with a fully adjustable seating system which can be quickly adjusted throughout the full range of width and depth, back angle and height without additional parts. The seat is designed for perfect adaptation to the user and enables prompt servicing and refurbishment. Alternative backs and cushions can be easily fitted.
Powered tilt module
Powered tilt module (0° to 30°) with centre of gravity adjustment to suit correct users balance.
Full range of powered seating and special control options
Change your seating position with three different types of tilt modules – the powered or mechanical single pivot tilt option for a basic tilt, the powered tilt module with integrated centre of gravity adjustment and the lift and tilt combi module. The backrest can be optionally reclined with an actuator or a mechanical gas strut. Finally the full range of special controls or input devices can be added to the chair to find the best operating performance for the user.
Approved for transport in a vehicle
The Salsa R2 is transit tested according to ISO 7176-19 and therefore approved for transportation in a vehicle. The tests are carried out with the 4 point tie-down system and the optional Dahl docking system for an even easier fixation. The Salsa R2 can be ordered in a configuration which is ready to fit the Dahl docking system.
Review: Pretty darn good. Nice and nippy, turns well round corners with no noticeable slowdown while turning, decent curb clearance and a decent speed too, needs a bit of tinkering for those with long legs. The one major downfall is that the armrests swing back to allow easy access, but cannot be locked in place so when you try to grab the armrests to help you move around (i.e. move your bum to a comfier position) the armrests just swing back, however, there are so many good points about this chair that I am almost willing to forgive the one bad point.
