Our priority remains to support our customers, as well as keeping our employees safe during this difficult period. We’d like to thank you for your flexibility when working with us to provide customers with continuous support.

In line with Government guidelines, this means that we are working with a reduced number of advisers. Phone lines will be open, but we’d be grateful for your patience if call lines are busier than usual.

We understand that customers who are self-isolating won’t be able to come to the door so we ask if you could arrange for your products to be left in a safe place so an engineer can do all repairs on their vans. Our engineers will be wearing gloves at all times, all communicating through phones.

Customer Feedback - Viper Power Cycle

After two failed off road power chairs I got in touch with Paul at Altonaids and he Brought a Viper trike out for me to test drive, and straight away I loved it And I ordered one. Since Paul delivered my trike I have been out every day with my dog which I couldn't do before I purchased it. My wife also takes me to the beach and it is great fun.

If anyone has read the advert before and has thought about giving the Viper a test drive give Altonaids a ring and go for it you will not be disappointed.


Taking the dog for a walk for example is now easy, the kids will love it now you can keep up with them. Stroll along the beach front or meander through wooded paths. Are you a keen angler if so getting to that out of the way fishing spot is now much easier. Most places that were otherwise in-accessible such as  festivals, boot sales, steam rallies and much more are now accessible thanks to the Viper.

Quad Bars (push to brake handle bars)

The Viper can be fitted with our Quad Bars, designed by Team Hybrid these allows those with limited hand movement to operate the brakes just by gently pushing the bars forward instead of having to pull/squeeze conventional brake levers.

The Viper is a powered quick release front attachment designed to fit the majority of fixed frame wheelchairs.

Docking system

The Viper can be connected to most rigid wheelchairs via a docking system that is permanently mounted under the wheelchair. It is lightweight, and adds approximately one kilogram to the weight of the chair. Once connected it takes only seconds to dock on.

The rear of the docking system is bolted to either the back axle or a bar going across the back of the chair. The front is bolted to the bar underneath the front of the seat. Some chairs do not have this bar, Kuschall for example. In this case we tailor a bar to the chair, which is then bolted on using the existing holes.

The docking system will add around 1 Kilogram to the weight of the wheelchair and once fitted actually strengthens the frame of the wheelchair.

Fatigue Testing

The Viper with it’s docking system connected to a Quickie GPV wheelchair has succeeded in passing vigorous fatigue trials in the USA this included being drop tested 6,667 times and a multi drum (rolling road) test of 200,000 cycles without failure or the need for adjustment on any component.
