Frequently Asked Questions

What is the weight capacity of the Helinox Chair One?

The Helinox Chair One measures 25.5 inches in height and 19.5 inches in width when assembled and can support up to 145 kg, or 320 lb. This weight capacity means the chair can safely and comfortably hold individuals up to this weight without risk of breakage or damage to the chair.

Does the Chair One come with a carry loop or shoulder strap?

While Chair One's bag is equipped with handles on both ends, it does not include a built-in shoulder strap. However, an optional Shoulder Strap accessory is available for purchase that can be attached to the bag's handles, enabling comfortable over-the-shoulder transportation.

Pro tip: To ensure the carry bag isn't misplaced, slide its handle over the lower seat poles prior to attaching the seat cover. This not only keeps the bag secure but also creates a convenient under-seat storage compartment for your essential items.

What is the difference between Chair Zero and Chair One?

The Chair One stands out as our most adaptable model. Its lightweight and compact nature make it an effortless addition to any adventure. Available in a variety of colors, Chair One is designed with mesh ventilation panels, perfect for warmer days. Although it sits a little higher and offers more space than the Chair Zero, the latter is an excellent choice when minimizing pack weight is crucial. However, if you're able to accommodate a bit of extra weight, Chair One serves as an ideal all-purpose option.

How high is the Chair One from the ground?

The base of the Chair One's seat sits about 10.5 inches or 27 cm above the ground. The chair's low profile contributes to its lightweight and compact nature, key aspects for easy packing and transport.

How do I clean my chair seat?

Helinox chairs are designed to last, using high-quality, sturdy materials. However, occasional care is needed to maintain their best condition. While the seat covers and carry bags aren't machine washable, a gentle hand washing in warm water with a mild detergent will do the trick. Ensure the fabric is thoroughly dry before storing.

How should I store my chair?

Every Helinox chair is crafted for convenience, featuring a compact design that fits snugly into its carry bag for easy transport and storage. Store your chair in any dry place, like under your car seat or in a closet. Just make sure the seat cover is dry when you pack it away.

How can I assemble my chair?

Assembly of your Helinox chair is a breeze. Its shock-corded frame nearly assembles itself – ensure all poles are fully inserted into the hubs. Start by fitting the seat to the upper rear poles first. Then, lay the chair on its back and apply your body weight to get the lower seat poles into the remaining two pockets. Brand new seats might feel a bit snug, but with use, they'll become easier to assemble.

Can I use my chair in water?

Helinox chairs are designed to be your home anywhere, and their alloy poles are anodized to resist corrosion. However, post-use care is advised if your chair has been near water. Rinse with fresh water if it has been exposed to salt water, and always dry your chair thoroughly before packing it away.

Can the elastic shock-cord be replaced?

Absolutely, any damaged shock-cord can be replaced.

What material is the frame made of?

The frames of Helinox chairs are made of a high-tech aluminum alloy that balances strength and weight. This unique alloy, which surpasses even aircraft-grade aluminum, goes through over 70 production processes from raw billet to the final pole section. The result is a reliable, packable, and aesthetically pleasing frame.

What are the joining hubs made from?

Helinox hubs and joining components are molded from high-strength, fiber-reinforced Nylon 66. This custom-designed, in-house component ensures a firm and secure connection for comfortable seating and simple assembly.
