The multi-award winning Trekinetic K2 is a lightweight, all terrain manual wheelchair like no other. Utilising cutting edge Formula 1 technology, the K2 was designed as an everyday manual chair that pushes the limits of what a wheelchair should be capable of. Built in the UK from start to finish, this is one of the most advanced wheelchairs on the planet.
Three wheels are better than four
Did you know that a three-sided structure is stronger than a four-sided structure? This is because the force is better distributed across all sides. Our three-wheel drive system ensures your body weight is distributed evenly across all wheels, improving both stability and traction, especially on uneven surfaces.
All terrain by design
Putting the big wheels at the front allows the Trekinetic K2 to cope with pretty much any terrain you can throw at it, be it on or off-road. It’s perfectly at home over mud, sand, snow and gravel, but is also versatile enough to use around town making light work of cobbles and cracked pavements. This means less time staring at the floor and more time enjoying the view.
Trekinetic’s front wheel drive system also means that the user’s back is fully supported when pushing. This means you don’t have to push as hard to create the same force to propel forward. Just like a weightlifter, it’s easier when your back is fully supported.
Engineered for versatility
Off-road stability requires a wider wheelbase. Indoor practicality requires a narrow wheelbase. Our patented Varicam system allows you to change the angle of the wheels by simply turning a bar under the seat. 0-16 degrees in 10 seconds. Zero tools required.
A comfortable ride
Trekinetic’s patented rear shock absorber ensures a smooth ride every time, by soaking up any uncomfortable cobbles, cracks, lumps and bumps you might encounter on your journey.
We strive to make our products as efficient as possible, so we like it when one device performs two functions. Our unique shock absorber also acts as a tilt in space mechanism to alter the angle of the seat and change the weight distribution in the chair. This is particularly useful when going downhill.
Carbon fibre is the new black
Like most modern vehicles, Trekinetic has done away with the traditional metal chassis and replaced it with a super lightweight carbon fibre monocoque chassis. This reduces the weight of the chair, whilst keeping it strong and results in a seat that more closely resembles the human form. This typically means less padding and more support.
Dynamic braking system
Our unique dynamic braking system means you can slow, stop or even turn the chair without so much as touching the wheels. It can also be used as a parking brake for when you want to get in or out of the chair.
Easy to transport
The K2 was designed to fold down and fit into a small vehicle with minimal effort. The front wheels come off with the simple click of a button and the rear castor folds down behind the seat.
For those that need to stay in the chair whilst in a vehicle, the Trekinetic K2 is crash tested to ISO 7176-19 when using the Trekinetic 5-Point Vehicle Restraint System.
