Ki Mobility Catalyst 5 Ultralight Folding Manual Wheelchair
Ki Mobility's flagship product, the Catalyst 5 has since redefined the ultra-lightweight folding market by raising the bar in weight, performance, durability, and functionality. Weighing in at 20.8 lbs. and constructed from ultra-lightweight 7000 series aluminum, the Catalyst 5 is arguably the best choice in high-performance folding wheelchairs. With our largest selection of options to help you customize and configure your chair, the Catalyst 5 makes daily life easier, no matter what the day brings.
There is a Catalyst Difference
While every model in the Catalyst family has a different axle plate with adjustment capabilities unique to each, they all take advantage of the same innovative design features that set them apart from other frames in the market. From the patented frame design constructed from 7000 series aluminum to the dual interlocking cross braces with a power x-hinge, there truly is a "Catalyst Difference".
Universal Axle Plate
The Universal Axle Plate does it all. Achieve seat-to-floor heights in 1/2" increments and adjust CG over a 3" range. With a more rigid design than its competitors, Catalyst 5 offers the best performing ride in its class.
300 lb. Standard Weight Capacity
Light is great but lighter AND stronger is better. Catalyst 5 has a mere transport weight of 12.8 lb.* and a standard weight of 20.8 lb.**. Did we mention it has a 300 lb. standard weight capacity? That makes Catalyst 5 the lightest AND strongest folding wheelchair in the K0005 category.
*Catalyst 5 weight calculated based upon: 16”x16” Frame, 5”x1” Poly Casters, Swing Away Arm Receivers. Footrest and Rear Wheels removed.
Front Frame Styles
The lightweight easy-to-use patented hangers now offer multiple hanger release options to further optimize chair set up for the client or caregiver. Did we mention, it's the ONLY hanger with a lifetime warranty!
Maxx Performance Spoke
Maxx Performance is our new spoke wheel that offers performance and style without a high price tag. It features eighteen radial spokes and a high flange hub that result in increased rigidity for a more responsive, better performing wheel. The heightened level of responsiveness combined with a lightweight design give the rider the most from every push. Constructed with a 6061 series aluminum rim and straight steel spokes with a durable black satin finish for a look and feel that is anything but standard.
