Krypton Lightweight Wheelchair

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.

Key Features

Technology Evolved

PIONEERING innovation was at the heart of the QUICKIE 1 back in the 1980s and has remained at the core of each and every QUICKIE lightweight wheelchair thereafter.

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.

Commissioned Carbon

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. 

Customised Carbon

The ART of prescribing a wheelchair is something that our exclusive dealers have decades of experience in.

Sometimes options are selected for their aesthetics, often it’s to deal with the demands of the environment or even due to personal preference. Whatever your requirements we can tailor-make your Krypton to suit you.

Your exclusive KRYPTON agent will take time to talk you through the vast range of options – some of which are unique to the Krypton – to ensure that your Krypton will be perfect for you.
