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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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. Simple.
