This folding ultralightweight wheelchair uses carbon fiber to produce a frame that is so lightweight, but also durable and adjustable. The Symmetrical Molded Cross Brace, the Rigid Unibody frame and the Ultrarigid folding system work together to reduce flex and torsion in the frame and provide the most efficient propulsion possible. The carbon fiber is carefully molded and tested to ISO and ANSI/RESNA standards, and special attention is devoted to the number and direction of carbon layers in specific frame areas.
