Ki Mobility

Little Wave Clik

Little Wave Clik

  • The Clik gets its name from strategically designed Index System tubing that is “dimpled” to optimize adjustments and eliminate guesswork. Ki Mobility says proper positioning techniques and wheel access are one “click” away from just right.
  • A dynamic fifth wheel can be adjusted for range and spring rate to match riders of various ability levels.
  • Width and depth grow from 8" to 16", so your littlest clients can use Clik in a mid-wheel setup, while more expert users can learn balance and wheeling skills.
