Quickie 2 Lite ultralight wheelchair is the newest member of the Quickie Folding ultralight wheelchair family. It is everything you love about the Quickie 2 in a lightweight, simple package. It offers an efficient option mix for active users looking for performance, style and fit in a chair that lives up to our motto, "Nothing Beats a Quickie."
Similar to the advanced technology available on the Quickie 2, the Angle Adjustable Backrest provides multiple back angles and adapts to the user's PSIS (Posterior Superior Iliac Spine) height.
The Single Post Height Adjustable Armrest features an easy-to-use release handle, height-adjustment trigger, and contoured desk or full arm pads. These armrests are also interchangeable from right to left.
Whether you are looking for a swing-in/swing-out front frame that makes transferring in tight spaces a breeze or a fixed front frame that provides rigid performance in a folding wheelchair, the Quickie 2 Lite can meet your needs.
The Quickie 2 Lite benefits from its modularity in the components, if your needs change - only select the components that need to be switched out. Standard with every Quickie 2 Lite wheelchair order, the original owner is entitled to a free growth kit within the first 5 years of chair ownership.
The new standard spoke wheel highlights a versatile, reliable streamlined hub design that is our lightest standard wheel to date. It significantly lightens the overall load, and users tell us it is very eye-catching!
Overall, the Quickie 2 Lite features a rounded rear frame and reduced side profile giving it a smooth and contoured look and feel.
Overall Weight: 27.75 pounds (Frame, wheels, arms, hangers w/ footplates). We left no stone unturned, by thoroughly examining the weight of each core element we found real savings. For example, common sense would lead you to believe that a 3-arm cross brace weighs more than a 2-arm. Our R&D team found a way using internal ribs to take weight out without compromising strength and durability.
Using the same guiding principles as the industry-leading Quickie 2, the Quickie 2 Lite offers a highly-adjustable modular frame. It features multiple front frames and seat rails in combination with an independent cross brace and rear frame. This is important when considering any potential changes in a user's condition, function, growth and/or environment. When expanding or lengthening the chair, only select components need to be replaced, not the entire chair.
Used inside many of the connecting components, Q-Fit ensures a tight fit right out of the box. The padded swing-away armrest and the plastic side guard both feature living spring receivers that are virtually wiggle-free. The footrest extension features anti-rotation receivers and a pressure-lock clamp that can withstand up to a 1000 lb load, about the same weight as an average male polar bear.
The rounded rear frame, reduced side profile, Q-gusset, redesigned front caster housing and footplate all give the Quickie 2 Lite a smooth, contoured, and natural feel.
