Constructed from carbon fibre the Quickie Krypton Wheelchair is the lightest fully adjustable wheelchair. Available in rigid (R model) and folding frame (F model), both with superior styling.
Over four decades, Quickie’s scientists have tasked themselves with developing the lightest and best-performing materials for their active-user wheelchairs. Carbon fibre has been found to out-perform aluminium and even titanium. It’s 7.4 times stronger than titanium, as well as being 2.5 times lighter. It’s 88% more resistant to deformation than aluminium!
Their revolutionary Krypton X BRAID technology creates a constant weave in the frame tubing. This ensures ZERO weak links and delivering a consistent and precise result EVERY TIME. This lightweight and ultra-strong material means the user has exert less energy as there’s less mass to propel and energy isn’t wasted by movement in the frame. For this reason, the R model is the lightest and most efficient Quickie Krypton. It weighs from just 3.65kg when dismantled, yet can support a maximum user weight of 125kg.
The F model, whilst slightly heavier at 5.8kg dismantled, is the lightest folding carbon fibre wheelchair in the world. It has all the convenience of folding horizontally for compact storage. The folding back feature and removable wheels help make it even more compact if needed.
Both models are fully configurable, guaranteeing a comfortable ride that allows you to find the optimum driving position for, again, greater energy efficiency.
