The U3 Light is a wheelchair designed for the experienced active user who can handle a ‘tippy’ wheelchair without an anti-tip device.
After sitting in a wheelchair long term, many people develop problems with neck and shoulder pain. To help reduce and/ or prevent further problems, the U3 light has been designed to make lifting and driving the chair as easy as it can possibly be without, of course reducing the ergonomic features from the U3.
The design is optimized for easy handling in and out of vehicles, and extremely good driving characteristics.
In its standard configuration, the U3 light has a carbon fibre rear axle, Spinergy X rear wheels, X footrest in aluminum and X castor wheels and a seat bag with integrated magnets.
The U3 Light exists in two different configurations. “U3 light” with normal balance, and “U3 light L” with a more “tippy” balance.
On the “U3 Light L” the rear axle has been moved forward an additional 7/8” (22mm). It is possible to adjust the position of the backrest by +/- 0.5” (10mm) forward or backwards to calibrate the balance.
