Why a carbon rollator at all?
The lightweight rollator
You are more mobile and maneuverable with a lightweight rollator, as this rollator is light and narrow . The Saljol Carbon rollator weighs just 5.6 kg and is 62 cm narrow when open .
Thanks to its low weight, the Saljol Carbon rollator is easy to maneuver even for people with weak muscles. You can easily push the rollator and still have a secure grip when walking.
Saljol Carbon rollator on prescription
The Saljol Carbon rollator is available on prescription! The lightweight rollator is registered in the GKV's list of medical aids. This means that the Carbon rollator can be prescribed and you can apply for a subsidy from your health insurance company.
You need the following medical aid number to prescribe the Saljol Carbon rollator: Item no.: 10.50.04.1260
The lightweight rollator is also easy to transport for people with less strength. You can easily load your rollator into the car. When folded, you can even carry the rollator up the stairs with one hand. This leaves your second hand free to hold on to the banister.
The Saljol Carbon rollator can be folded lengthways so that you can continue to make trips by car. The carbon rollator is then only 22 cm wide. The folded rollator therefore takes up very little space in the trunk or in front of the rear seat. It is easy to fold by pulling the easily recognizable, cork-coloured release strap on the seat.
Easy to unfold
You can unfold the Saljol Carbon rollator just as easily. Simply open the brown safety hook and pull the carbon rollator apart by the push handles. Then gently press the seat down with the flat of your hands until the seat clicks into place. The carbon rollator is now ready for use and safe travel can begin.
Push handles made of cork TPE
The push handles and armrests of the Saljol Carbon rollator are made of skin-friendly cork TPE. It has a pleasant feel and is particularly suitable for handles thanks to its non-slip structure. Cork is also UV-resistant and abrasion-proof. Even sweaty hands cannot harm the push handles. Even shocks are absorbed by the cork handles, so even a trip over cobblestones is no problem.
Many people get sore muscles in their hands with standard rollators, as the shocks are not absorbed and are transferred directly to the hands. The cork handles absorb the shocks and protect the hands and arms. As a result, there is little or no muscle soreness in the upper extremities when using the Saljol Carbon rollator. The shock-absorbing handles are also suitable for people with sensory disorders in their hands, such as carpal tunnel syndrome.
The cork TPE armrests also ensure that you are particularly comfortable when sitting. Pressure points on the forearms are avoided and the arms do not slip.
Fast and safe braking
The hand brakes are easy to reach and coated with soft cork TPE - ideal for sensitive hands . You can brake quickly and safely. The handbrake is activated as soon as you apply it lightly. When you want to sit on the rollator, press the handbrakes down. This activates the parking brake and prevents the rollator from rolling away on uneven surfaces.
One-hand simultaneous brake available as an accessory
The unique one-hand brake system, which you may have already seen on our Allround rollator, is now also available for the Saljol Carbon rollator. The Carbon rollator is equipped with a standard two-hand brake as standard, but you can purchase the conversion kit for the one-hand simultaneous brake as an accessory. This allows you to choose whether you want to operate the two brakes with your left or right hand. This is a huge advantage for anyone who no longer has full strength in both hands.
With the Saljol Carbon rollator, you always have your seat with you and can take a break at any time while walking . Wherever you are forced to stand for long periods of time, you can now sit down comfortably - at traffic lights or while waiting for the bus, while shopping or queuing at the checkout.
How to sit correctly on the Carbon Rollator!
The Saljol Carbon rollator is one of the safest rollators in the world because it has more than 30 reflectors. The rollator is equipped with four reflectors on the back alone, and there are also two large reflectors on each side. These contribute significantly to your visibility in road traffic, especially at dusk . The carbon rollator also has reflectors on the wheel forks and all wheels. These spoke reflectors are recommended by the police and the traffic police, as they are particularly visible in the dark due to the movement.
You can read all about how to travel safely at dusk and in the dark in our blog.
Safety through visibility!
Going downhill safely
The Saljol Carbon rollator comes asstandard with the"gear shift", or grinding brake with foot pedal. This means that you can set an individual rolling resistance via the grinding brake . To do this, you need to step lightly on the red lever on the rear wheels with your foot or push it upwards. This allows you to switch the rolling resistance on or off. This means that the walking speed can be reduced using the gear shift on the rear wheels. This is particularly helpful for getting down a hill without the rollator rolling away. With the rolling resistance, you have a stable grip on the rollator and can descend safely.
Our encourager, Mr. Peter Spendler, on the grinding brake:
"I often stumble due to a weakness in lifting my feet and am quite unsteady, especially on sloping paths. The rollator's drag brake is particularly helpful when going downhill, because I can use it to reduce my walking speed and feel much safer. I can easily engage and disengage it with my foot like a gear shift. Great!"
Standard stick holder
The cane holder is also included as standard. It has a small clamp that you attach to the height adjustment of the Saljol Carbon rollator using two screws. A small basket, in which you place your walking aid, is fixed to the lower frame with two screws. The cane holder can be mounted on both sides of the rollator if you need two walking aids.
And don't worry: when folded, the basket of the cane holder slides inwards all by itself. This prevents it from breaking off when loading the rollator into the car, for example.
Bag with smartphone compartment
The practical rollator bag is available in two color variants: black with a brown pocket and completely black. The carbon rollator in the matt black version is always supplied with a black bag, all other rollator colors include the black bag with a brown flap.
The handle bag can carry up to 5 kg. It can be removed with one hand and is easy to open and close with a magnetic fastener. The bag has a rainproof, transparent compartment on the lid. You can use this compartment for your smartphone or a name tag, for example. A ticket for the bus or train is also very well stored in this transparent compartment, as a ticket inspector can see it directly without you having to search for it in your bag. The handle bag of the Saljol Carbon rollator has a light-colored inner lining. This makes it easier to find your stowed items. Discreet reflectors also ensure better visibility in the dark. There are nets on the sides. You can carry drinks or an umbrella in these. There are also two eyelets on the bag. You can attach the LED lamp for rollators here. This allows you to add lighting to the front or footwell of your rollator.

Standard rollators have solid rubber tires. When walking on the rollator, they transfer the bumps directly to the hands and arms. This can quickly lead to sore muscles in the arms and shoulder pain .
Carbon rollators, on the other hand, have very soft solid rubber tires. Here, the bumps are cushioned and not transferred directly to the hands. This reduces sore muscles in the upper extremities. In addition, special push handles prevent the transfer and thus provide additional protection.
This makes using the rollator more enjoyable, whether on level or uneven ground.
Folding rollators: transverse and longitudinal folding
For many people, it is important in everyday life that a rollator can be folded for transportation. Cash register models have a transverse fold. Despite being folded, the rollator still takes up a lot of space.
The Carbon rollator, on the other hand, has a longitudinal fold. When folded, the rollator is only 22 cm narrow. The folded rollator can even be stored in the footwell behind the driver/passenger seat. And luggage for the journey can be stowed in the trunk without any problems. The carbon rollator is therefore space-saving for transportation.
The frame of cashier models is made of steel. As a result, these rollators can quickly weigh around 10 kg.
The carbon rollator, on the other hand, weighs only 5.6 kg because, as the name suggests, it is made of the lightweight material carbon. Carbon consists of carbon fibers and is half as heavy as aluminium and harder than steel.
The light weight of the carbon rollator is important for many people who suffer from muscle weakness. Transportation, driving over kerbs or even carrying up stairs is much easier to manage with the low weight.
The Carbon rollator has a tilting aid. This helps when negotiating kerbs or small steps.
The tipping aid is located on the rear wheels of the rollator. Simply step lightly on it with your foot to raise the front wheels of the Carbon rollator and it can be pushed over the obstacle.
Standard rollators rarely have a tipping aid. They have to be lifted onto the kerb. This requires a lot of muscle power. However, this is needed much more urgently for other activities. For example, the energy saved can be used for an extra walk or simply make the user feel fitter or less exhausted after a walk.
The right carbon rollator for you
The Saljol carbon rollator is available in two different versions. The CR54 with a lower seat height is particularly suitable for shorter people (up to around 1.65 m tall). This allows you to sit and walk safely. The handles can be adjusted in five stages. Certainly the most important argument is that your feet are securely on the ground when sitting. This ensures a stable seat.
The CR62 is the better choice for medium to tall people (from around 1.65 m tall). The handles can be individually adjusted to the user's height in nine increments. Up to a support height of 103 cm. Only two screws need to be turned to adjust the height of the handles.
Not sure whether a carbon rollator is right for you? It is important that you feel safe and comfortable with your rollator. There are many different types of rollator. Use our rollator advisor to find a rollator that suits you.
How to find the right size for the Carbon rollator
The seat height is the decisive factor when choosing the rollator size. The small carbon rollator (CR54) has a seat height of 54 cm. The large rollator (CR62) has the standard seat height for rollators: 62 cm. It is important that the soles of the feet always have full contact with the ground when seated, i.e. that they are firmly on the ground. This is an important safety aspect: the feet support the balance when sitting and can prevent dangerous falls (e.g. on a slope, a push or in strong winds).
People under 1.65 m tall are often unable to place their feet fully on a large rollator with the standard seat height. In this case, the small rollator is the safer choice. Also consider whether you could place a cushion or jacket on the seat net for more comfort. This would further increase your seat height. Below you will find instructions and a size chart. This allows you to easily determine the correct size of your rollator yourself.
1. measure the support height (B).
Measure the distance from the floor to the end of the handball: Upright posture, arms hanging loosely. It is important to bend your arms slightly when leaning on the rollator.
2. measure the length of your lower leg (C).
Measure the distance from the floor to the start of the knee bend: Upright posture, legs extended.
It is important that the soles of your feet touch the floor when you are sitting on the rollator. You can also sit on a chair for the measurement.
3. compare your measurement with the example table
|A) Body height
|B) Floor to ball of the hand
|C) Lower leg length
|Handle height adjusted
|Handle height Min-Max.
|76 - 88 cm
|80.5 - 103 cm
|80.5 - 103 cm

Standard, lightweight and carbon rollators in comparison
A standard steel rollator usually weighs between 9 and 11 kg. Higher-quality lightweight rollators are significantly lighter. Due to its ultra-light material, the carbon rollator is a special feature in the lightweight rollator category. Further differences between the rollator types can be found in the following table.

Who needs a carbon rollator?
The carbon rollator with its very low weight and stylish design has many different areas of application:
Style is not the end of a broom for you? Are you looking for a rollator that offers you safety and at the same time suits you? Cash register models are often very plain, clunky, rattling and far from unique in design.
With its slightly curved frame and elegance, the Saljol Carbon rollator is reminiscent of a design from the 1950s. We want you to enjoy using the rollator. We don't want you to have to overcome any inhibitions to get out on the road with a rollator. We want you to feel comfortable with a rollator. Whether you're going for a walk, shopping or traveling.
Let our carbon rollator help you to enjoy going outside, to enjoy movement and to have fun again.
From a certain age, age-related weakness is a natural development process of our body. As a result of this ageing process, we suffer memory and functional disorders. The resulting consequences are muscle breakdown and muscle weakness. The muscles become weaker and performance is greatly reduced. Normal movement sequences can no longer be performed.
It is almost impossible for people with muscle weakness to lift a rollator weighing almost 10 kg over a kerb. And transporting it over a landing is almost unthinkable. As a result, many people lose the joy of walking with a rollator. You feel even more immobile when maneuvering a heavy walking aid. This is where the Carbon rollator, with its 5.6 kg, is a real lightweight. Lifting it, for example over a landing, can be done with one hand. And overcoming kerbs is also much easier thanks to the tilting aid. The rollator does not need to be lifted. It can be tilted backwards with a small step on the lever and pushed onto the kerb. For people with muscle weakness, manoeuvring a lightweight walking aid is easier and more comfortable.
The Carbon rollator can be stowed in the trunk to save space thanks to its convenient folding function. Even when folded, its weight is evenly distributed. This is easy on the back when lifting and loading. The quiver of the cane holder retracts automatically when folded. This prevents it from breaking off during loading or transportation.
Do you frequently use public transportation? The Carbon rollator has a clear advantage over other rollators, especially when getting on the bus. It can be easily lifted onto the bus , making it easier for you to get on. Caution: Please do not sit on the rollator while on the bus. Park the rollator with the parking brakes applied in a place on the bus where it is not in the way. Sit on a nearby seat on the bus.
Do you already have a standard rollator and don't like using it because you get pain in your shoulders or sore muscles in your arms? Standard rollators have solid rubber tires. However, these tires do not absorb shocks and are transferred directly to your arms and shoulders. This often leads to tension and sore muscles in the neck and back.
You can prevent this pain with a carbon rollator. The very soft solid rubber tires and the cork TPE handles absorb shocks and bumps. This means that these are not transferred directly to the upper extremities. There is little or no tension in the neck and back.
Thanks to its low weight, the Carbon rollator can be folded, pushed, transported and braked with one hand.
If you have a paralyzed hand due to a stroke (apoplexy) or other illness, you can still walk safely with the Saljol Carbon rollator. The walking aid is maneuverable and smooth-running. This means that even one hand has enough strength to walk on the rollator.
The rollator can also be folded up with just one hand. It can be folded easily with just one hand by pulling the release strap on the seat.
The low weight means you can transport the rollator with one hand. Even when folded, the weight is balanced so that you can even load it into the car with one hand.
