BMW's Aerodynamic Wheelchair for the Paralympics

"At this year's Paralympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the U.S. wheelchair racing team will be sporting some especially stylish equipment. Their chairs have been redesigned by BMW's global creative consultancy DesignworksUSA for a faster, sleeker, and more comfortable ride (...).

Because they don't have the same branding potential as bikes or running shoes, there hasn't been a lot of money invested in Paralympic athletic gear compared to that of other sports. This means racing wheelchairs are slower and less user-friendly than they ought to be." (mental_floss)
