RGK Octane Sub 4 ultra lightweight rigid wheelchair

rgk-octane-sub4-wheelchair

The first made to measure titanium wheelchair fro RGK guaranteed under 4kg.

RGK took the classic Octane design and redefined it even further by combining Sub4 technology with a hand crafted made to measure titanium grade 9 frame.

Resulting, in an ultra-lightweight and rigid wheelchair that is perfectly designed to fit you and your lifestyle!

Key features 

No corrosion - Titanium will not rust and is very resistant to corrosion and salt water. Perfect for adventures out and about.

Smooth ride - The frame has a natural in-built shock absorption to soak up road vibration, which means that it will deliver a super-smooth and comfortable ride quality like no other.

Durability - A titanium frame has a far greater ability to bend without breaking, elongating by up to 25% compared to around 15% for steel and 8% for aluminium.

Strength to weight ratio - Strong as steel but 45% lighter, titanium has the highest strength-to-weight ratio out of all the known metals.
