PIONEERING wheelchairs didn’t always exist… QUICKIE created them. From the first lightweight, adjustable wheelchair in the 1980s that thirst for more ENERGY EFFICIENT wheelchairs remains. That’s why we’ve taken the leading technology of our time to create the most advanced manual wheelchair to date – the Krypton.
The creation of the QUICKIE Krypton has been an evolution over the past four decades, exploring numerous lightweight materials and manufacturing processes to bring you the ultimate lightweight energy efficient wheelchair.
Unique manufacturing allows us to create a lightweight carbon wheelchair – like never before – using X BRAID technology which has been previously unseen in wheelchairs.
Choose the rigid efficiency of the Krypton R, from just 3.65 kg or the convenience of the Krypton F – the lightest adjustable wheelchair in the world - which folds to a compact transportation size.
Style your ride
Your QUICKIE Krypton is available in three bold colour accents (red, orange and blue). Add a splash of personality and show off your signature style - being as bold or as minimal as you desire.
KRYPTON R: RIGID EFFICIENCY
The Krypton R is our rigid option (and our most efficient). The rigid axle tube is very stiff and reduces overall movement in the wheelchair.
This allows more energy that you put into the wheelchair to be transferred to the forward propulsion. The backrest can be folded and the rear wheels removed to allow for a lightweight folding package to be lifted into the car. The transfer weight of the wheelchair can start from as little as 3.65kg, meaning less stress on your shoulders and giving you the freedom to live life on your terms.
KRYPTON F: FOLDING FOR TRAVEL
The Krypton F is the folding options, this means that it can fold horizontally for a more compact size.
The folding cross-brace is our most advanced cross-brace ever and is extremely lightweight. The Krypton F is 500g lighter than the Xenon-FF and is the lightest adjustable wheelchair in the world.
When the Krypton is folded, you can choose to remove the wheels or stow the wheelchair in a folded position. The fold-down back option provides an even more compact folding package.
Sculpting wheelchairs is an art we have developed over the last 30 years. We understand that everyone has a different shape and size and we know how important it is to have a wheelchair bespoke to you.
With that in mind, there are over 10,000 configuration possibilities for each Krypton version (rigid and folding). Our exclusive agents will be able to recommend the best options for your shape, lifestyle and requirements.
Each Krypton comes with carbon options that complement the frame tube to cater for many demands and preferences. In the event that these don't perfectly suit you, there's a range of alternative options available.
Finish your Krypton with a choice of frame options.
The frame-tubing can be left raw or coated to offer a premium look to suit you and your style.
