Nitrum Rigid Wheelchair

Nitrum Rigid Wheelchair



This Item is Final Sale

Elevate your ride to a whole new level! The QUICKIE Nitrum is engineered to efficiently convert your energy into motion, allowing you to propel with the least amount of effort.

QUICKIE's decades of experience developing high-end manual wheelchairs coupled with feedback from wheelchair users drove the design of the Nitrum. For active users who are looking for unmatched driving performance, innovative details, and a large variety of options, the Nitrum creates the perfect match for fit and performance.


A perfect fit for EVERY body.
Body positioning is crucial for propulsion efficency. When your weight is balanced incorrectly, your wheelchair is more difficult to push. That's why the Nitrum boasts the largest range of sizes and adjustments in its class, so you can achieve your own perfect fit.

The first integrated LEDs with removable battery.
Mounted on both caster arms, the Nitrum's integrated LEDs will light up your night. The power pack provides up to 4 hours of run time and can be easily detached for recharging or to reduce the overall weight of the chair. How's that for bright?

Composite housing is water- and shock-proof
Four LEDs per side light up the area around the caster wheels
Three modes: high, low, and blink
Control box is mounted inconspicuously on the calf strap and includes a detachable and rechargeable lithium-ion battery

Patented, adjustable caster system
Instead of several welded parts, we use a reinforced and patented caster mechanism in a single hollow-forged component. The fewest possible elements and no moving parts give you amazing driving performance. Ultra-lightweight yet strong and durable without compromising adjustability.

Caster position is optimized for handling, turning, and maximized propulsion efficiency. Casters may be positioned narrower for more maneuverability or wider for greater stability.

Active Rigid Option
During development of the Nitrum series, we made it our goal to optimize weight savings of each component and to achieve maximum rigidity. Nitrum Active Rigid Frames take this principle to the extreme.

Both chairs are based on the same lightweight construction as Nitrum and Nitrum Hybrid, but are characterized by the fixed welded backrest and axle stems which save even more weight, increase frame stiffness, and reduce moving parts.

A simple formula
Fewer moving parts means:

Less play
Less maintenance
Lower weight

Open Frame
Lightest Weight, Simplest Design
The lightest adjustable rigid aluminum wheelchair in its class. A minimalistic open frame design makes it easy to propel, transport, and stow.

Simplicity + Strength
Along with its super clean look, the Nitrum is suitable for users up to 275 lbs. and offers the full range of adjustability and options.

Hybrid Frame
Most Rigid, Still Lightweight
The Nitrum Hybrid offers a reinforced front frame without compromising its proven lightweight construction.

The dual tube design is suitable for users up to 300 lbs. and combines extraordinary stability with durable lightweight construction and full adjustability. This leads to an ultra-stiff frame design and an unrivaled rigid ride.
