Karman's S-Ergo Flight Ultralightweight Wheelchair is the lightest T6 aluminum manual-propel wheelchair on the market, providing titanium-grade weight at an aluminum-grade price! This lightweight design carries with it a number of features that make the S-Ergo Flight a wheelchair you cannot ignore.
First, the frame. Made with 6061 T6 aircraft-grade aluminum, the S-Ergo Flight's frame weighs only 14.5 lbs - direct competition for any titanium frame. With an overall weight of only 19.8 lbs, this wheelchair is tough to beat for portability when compared to other manual-propel chairs.
The modern design of the Karman S-style ergonomic seating system, featured on the S-Ergo Flight, provides pressure relief, stabilization and anti-slippage - all important for any wheelchair user. It's also extra comfortable thanks to its ability to distribute weight evenly, as well as the 0.25" thick built-in Aegis anti-bacterial seat and back cushion. A pocket behind the backrest provides convenient storage space. The seat folds for easy transport in a vehicle or when traveling, and optional Quick Release Rear Wheels increase the portability and versatility of this ultra lightweight wheelchair.
A host of benefits accompanies the S-Ergo Flight's ergonomic handrims. The design of these handrims provides better performance and efficiency by eliminating pushing on the tire and increasing control over braking. This also reduces pain in the hands and wrists; with the average pushes in a day reaching upwards of 3000, easing the pain is something any wheelchair user would appreciate!
Enhancing the comfort of the wheelchair are fixed armrests with wider concaved armpads; this design is a huge improvement over the usual skinny, flat armrest. Swing in & out footrests are removable and make entering and exiting the wheelchair much easier than fixed footrests. The extending push-to-lock manual breaks give the user complete control over the wheelchair's stopping power, and companion brakes located on the handles increase the safety and comfort. Finally, the S-Ergo Flight uses 20" rear polyurethane, high profile, flat-free wheels and 6" x 1" polyurethane front casters for smooth and reliable movement.
