Quickie Krypton F

The wheelchair weighs 8.3 kg and it was created from the most advanced carbon technology available, producing a staggering strength-to-weight ratio.

Quickie Krypton R

The Quickie Krypton R is the rigid carbon frame wheelchair in the range. It weighs just 6.2kg and is the first wheelchair made of the patented, most innovative seamless carbon braid technology. It is extremely strong and reliable and the chair was approved only when engineers were 100% satisfied with the quality.

The chairs rigid axle tube is very stiff , this reduces overall movement in the chair which allows more of the energy you put into the chair to be transferred to forward propulsion. The backrest can also be folded and the rear wheels removed to allow a lightweight folding package to be lifted into the car. The light transfer weight of the chair means less stress on your shoulders and likelihood of injury.

Five times stronger than steel, and both stiffer and lighter than any other material available, carbon fibre is the ultimate material for a lightweight wheelchair, and the Krypton range is the best in its class.

  • Tubular Footrest
