Small folding size and optimised weight
When a popular product that’s been proven over many years reaches its fourth generation, there’s a lot to say about it. For one, we’ve made the Avantgarde considerably lighter. The weight of the options has been optimised and the models further developed without giving up proven features.
In addition to its low weight, the Avantgarde DS stands out for its extremely small folding size. At the same time, it offers active wheelchair users numerous options. With its compact design and integrated leg supports, the Avantgarde DS has the lowest net weight in the Avantgarde series.
Out-front scissor wheel lock
A knee lever wheel lock with optional wheel lock lever extension is available in addition to the out-front scissor wheel lock.
Adjustable front wheel adapter
The front wheel adapter can be adjusted in stages, guaranteeing precise adjustment of the front wheels and therefore the optimum directional stability of the wheelchair.
Optimised for a low weight, the 300 g CLT crossbrace is an alternative to the classic double crossbrace and can be ordered with a maximum load capacity up to 100 kg.
Optimised rear wheel adapter
The rear wheel adapter ensures very high stability. It offers 84 different rear wheel positions.
