Why magnesium alloy
Magnesium is the lightest structural metal currently available in the world. It is approximately 33% lighter by volume than aluminum and 50% lighter than titanium.
In addition to lightweight construction, a few of the other advantages that magnesium offers are excellent fatigue resistance, denting and buckling resistance, and the highest known damping capacity of any structural metal.
The extremely light magnesium frame reduce significantly the total weight of the products.
Principal benefits for the final user:
Lightness, exceptional manoeuvrability, fluidity and multi-adjustability, user-friendly
Carbon fibre rigid postural backrest BKRTR + folding system, central axle in carbon fibre with Aria® patented shock absorbing technology ASAT, carbon fibre side guards, carbon fibre rigid seat pan, stainless steel screws + the STD optional in its relating order form.
