Features

Titanium

The TiLite TX is hand crafted from seamless, aerospace-grade titanium. Why titanium?

  • Because titanium has no equal when it comes to dampening vibrations caused by riding over rough or uneven surfaces. This means superior comfort for the user during many hours of use.
  • Because titanium’s weight is about one-half that of the aluminum used in most wheelchairs. This means that a complete 16” x 16” TX in its standard configuration weighs only 9kgs! The TX must be the lightest folding wheelchair in existence.
  • Because titanium is incredibly strong. This means the TX will shake off years of abuse.

Custom Built

Each TX begins life in the TiLite Designs Unlimited Studio, where the frame is drawn to each user’s individual specifications.  Next, TiLite fabricators and welders bring the drawings to life by hand building the TX’s 1.00” dual-tube titanium frame to exacting standards.  Finally, before each TX leaves the TiLite factory, it is carefully assembled and inspected it to ensure that it matches precisely what the customer has ordered.  Each TX is like no other TX.

One-Piece Side Frames

TiLite builds the TX with one-piece side frames. They also build their rigid chairs with one-piece side frames. Other manufacturers build their folding chairs with two- or three-piece side frames that are bolted together, leading to flex, squeaks and loss of energy. One-piece side frames increase performance by reducing flex and increasing durability.

Rigid Folding Mechanism

The TX features TiLite’s exclusive Rigid Folding Mechanism cross tube design “RFM.”  The RFM cross tubes permit TiLite to use one-piece side frames.  This innovation increases performance and enhances durability because the side frames are welded together - not bolted. In addition, RFM cross tubes secure to the bottom frame tube by clamping over it.  This keeps the bottom pivot point in line with the frame, allowing the chair to fold as narrowly as possible.

Snap-In Seat Saddles

TiLite’s RFM cross tubes also feature snap-in seat saddles that lock the cross tubes into place, helping the TX achieve rigid chair performance.

Bullet Caster Housing

TiLite’s exclusive Bullet Caster Housing was created by designing an integral frame component with two goals in mind; low weight and elegant looks.  Like many of TiLite’s innovations, the Bullet Caster design reduces the weight of the chair.  Sometimes simple really is better.

Machined Camber Plugs

The TiLite TX utilizes machined plugs to create rear wheel camber. Other manufacturers use washers to create rear wheel camber. The use of machined camber plugs precisely aligns the TX’s rear wheels, allowing the chair to consistently track straight.

TiLite in Color? 

The TiLite TX is now available with a Satin or Polished titanium finish or in one of 17 painted frame colors.  Whether you are looking for subtle, bright, or just plain cool, now there is a TiLite look for you.
