Precision-engineered to turn your energy into motion so you can go further, faster, and for longer.
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.
Performance and style
We don't compromise; you shouldn't either.
Highly flexible and strong; your ideal sparring partner. Each chair is made by hand in California and is unique, just like you. Individually position your feet, lower leg, and pelvis in the best possible way for improved handling and efficient propulsion.
Three frame angles: 75°, 80°, 85°
Three frame insets: 0", 1", 2"
89 seat width/seat depth combinations, up to 20"
Lower leg length selection
Two caster positions
Experience the lightest in its class: the QUICKIE Nitrum translates your energy into motion. When designing the lightest rigid wheelchair without compromising stability or load ability, several components must come together: innovative development, leading-edge technology, as well as high-end materials.
The minimalistic open frame design is made of a special ovalized 7020 series aerospace aluminum that has been heat treated using ShapeLoc technology. Together with the hollow forged caster link tubes, we've minimized the total weight and therefore total energy expenditure needed for propulsion. Drive further and faster without getting tired.
With its striking design, smart details, and unbeatable performance, the Nitrum elevates your ride to a whole new level. We are convinced you deserve a wheelchair that meets your individual needs; a wheelchair that takes you further. This is why the Nitrum has greater configurability to help achieve your perfect fit.
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.
A unique twist to backrest folding.
Just grab the patented Twist-Lock bar with one hand and twist it to release, fold and load the chair into your car. With double-locking, you can use the same bar to lift it. It'll also lock without removing your sideguards or low-profile cushion.
The standard option is a release bar (push up to fold) for an ergonomic and quick release of the folding mechanism. You can also choose a lightweight version of the backrest and our proprietary, stylish Freestyle® backrest.
Easier car transfers
Clean and minimalistic. Once the rear wheels are removed, the underside of the frame is completely open, allowing the Nitrum to be easily lifted across (and closer to) your body when getting in and out of the car.
Ergonomic grab bars
The ergonomic grab bars (with rubber grip pads) on the backrest and cross-tube help you to grip and balance your wheelchair during lifting (reducing the strain on your wrists).
Standard, one-handed folding back
The standard release bar provides a simple, quick-release folding mechanism. Just pull the bar upwards to unlock and fold. Incredibly robust, it won't loosen over time and can double-lock with sideguards and a low-profile cushion still on the wheelchair.

Tension-adjustable seat sling
Breathable fabric with block-and-tackle tension adjustment is easy to tighten, and its double-loop mechanisms will remain secure.
The Freestyle Back is all about freedom of movement. By providing a 360° range of upper body motion, you can freely twist and turn without catching your backrest posts.
Compact wheel lock
We've designed a better wheel lock in terms of function, strength, and even weight.
- Redesigned housing controls play and improves durability
- Enhanced wheel lock engagement
- Transfer-friendly design
- Available as direct mount, reducing weight an additional 6 ounces.
The QUICKIE Nitrum uses a specially processed 7020-series aerospace aluminum. Together with the new hollow forged caster link tubes, we minimize the total weight of the wheelchair. Therefore the open frame is easier to handle and transport in cars or other vehicles.
A perfect fit for EVERY body.
Body positioning is crucial for propulsion efficiency. 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
