Weight & Rigidity

The lightest in its class.

This is innovative engineering at its best. We employ state-of-the-art materials and principles to minimise weight (from 7.5 kg) and maximise strength, so you need less energy to propel.

  • With fewer stress points due to its elongated sides, our unique oval tubing is stronger than round as it's less likely to flex under pressure. It's also lighter as the shape uses less material.

  • Sculpted from high-strength 7020 Aluminium, the frame is specially heat-treated using our patented ShapeLoc technology, so the tubing can be significantly thinner and lighter without any sacrifice to its strength.

  • Frame clamped castor links and cross-tubes can increase weight and cause energy loss through vibration. The NITRUM is hand-welded into one-complete frame, so you get a stiffer, lighter ride.

  • The forged aluminium backrest bracket is extremely stiff,so it's significantly more energy efficient without sacrificing the adjustability of the backrest angle or height.

The lightest in its class.
Patented castor-link

Precision Control

Patented castor-link

Instead of multiple parts welded, the castor-link is one hollow-forged component. Stronger, lighter and completely adjustable, the castor angle (1) and height (2) can be changed to improve handling whilst you're in the wheelchair. The castor link length and angle are also personally-tailored to your wheelchair, for the very-best handling, turning and propulsion efficency. 

Lifting

A unique-twist to backrest folding.

Just grab the patented Twist Lock bar with one hand and twist it to release, fold and load the chair into your car. With double-locking, you can also use the same bar to lift it. It'll also lock without removing your sideguards or low-profile cushion.

More Lifting Features

Adjustability

A perfect fit for EVERY body.

Body positioning is crucial for propulsion efficency. When your weight is balanced incorrectly, your wheelchair is more difficult to push. That's why the NITRUM boasts the largest range of sizes and adjustments in its class, so you can achieve your own perfect fit.
