A very sleek looking carbon fibre rigid wheelchair. Available in many colour options for customising the caster housing and caster wheels. Making it the perfect fit for those who need a super light chair and want to turn people’s eyes.

I’ve gone from a Quickie Helium to the Krypton R and I’m really enjoying it. I was a tad suspicious about having a carbon chair, but the frame is super strong. It even has some flex when going off and up curbs, over cobbles, and gravel paths, making the ride more comfortable by eating up the impact. Plus having a lifetime guarantee on the frame also puts the mind at ease.
It rolls very smoothly on flat surfaces and can pick up some speed when going downhill without doing the dreaded wheel wobble – or maybe I’m just not going fast enough!
It’s super easy to dismantle and chuck into my car’s passenger or rear seat. My only niggle is that my chair doesn’t balance well when tilting it onto the footplate, but this is down to having an optional backrest.
