The Long-Awaited Firefly 2.5 is Here!
By Rio Mobility
Attach and detach in seconds.

Load easily into any vehicle.
Go anywhere: hills, grass, trails and more.
The Firefly 2.5 "BK Edition’’ is the latest version of Firefly power attachment for wheelchairs, and has the most advanced technology on the market for wheelchair power assists.
Rio has zeroed-in on the details, and improved every feature on the firefly from it's useability to it's durability. The design "BK Edition" is named in memory of Bart Klystra, the late founder of Rio Mobility.
Connecting and disconnecting the Firefly is simpler than ever before.
Dual kickstands allow users to park and store their Firefly in an upright position. Pop it on and off with ease as you go through your daily routine. The headset can now also be locked, so that the steering is locked in place when transitioning to and from the Firefly.
Go Further, Do More
A 3-inch wide front tire has been added for increased torque on hills and better traction for all the trails and off-roading you can handle.
Dual disk brakes with dual disk calipers provide more braking power, and increased disk and pad lifetimes. Behind the wheel, users will notice locking brake handles with an integrated bell.
A dual LED light system: one light points up and out while the second one points downward at the ground in front of you.
Cutting-edge technology puts the Firefly 2.5 on the level of far more expensive power assists
An improved Battery Management System and industry leading Panasonic GA batteries will give you longer rides than ever before and no worry that a "memory" will wear out your battery over time.
Rio Mobility is one of only a few power attachments manufactures that has a 252 Watt-hour battery that is UN tested and is certified to be taken as carry-on luggage on most airlines.
A color touch screen with haptic feedback allows all input and customization and makes controlling the features of the Firefly a breeze.
Anyone, with any level of disability, can enjoy riding a Firefly.
A new feature of the controller allows the top-speed of the Firefly to set according to the user’s needs. This allows for a range of customizability to the needs of the user. Users with a safety-minded daily routine, users who have difficulty controlling a fast power-assist, or users who want to primarily ride indoors will feel far more comfortable with a lower governed speed.
Our beloved outdoor adrenaline seeking customers will want to get the speed as high as possible and have the option to push the Firefly to it's full potential.
Our customers that have limited hand dexterity will find that the lock-on handlebar grips will greatly increase thier ability to keep their hands in place while riding.

I have been using the original Firefly for 3 years and loved it. When I moved to the Firefly 2.5 I was very impressed with the improvements. The larger tire, the color display with better features, the locking column is huge! The lighter battery is so easy to remove now and the dual headlights are actually functional for night driving.
My only hesitation is the throttle, both forward and reverse. There seems to be a 1 or 2 second delay when you press forward or reverse so you have to factor that in to your movement. The forward, once past the delay it very aggressive at the start instead of steady power its a burst of power.
I have been in a chair for 32 years and find the firefly to be the right tool for me. I have flown all over the US with it and now my wife tires out instead of me, plus this save my shoulders!!
