Invacare Top End
Top End NRG
The Eliminator NRG Racing Wheelchair is Top End’s fastest, lightest, stiffest and most responsive ride for elite racers. A carbon fiber main frame provides increased tensile and yield strength for a smooth ride and controlled handling, while the 200-gram full carbon fork features an aerodynamic design that flows into the headtube, creating clean lines for a sleek appearance. A tailored and fitted hybrid cage allows athletes to fine tune their positioning, so they can optimize their power transfer to the ground. A new and improved racing compensator improves turning radius and zero-play confidence.

An ATP & Clinician Best Pick of 2018:
Ki has, once again, listened closely to the needs of the consumer, therapist and supplier, and responded with a very well-thought-out and beautifully designed solution!
This chair is a great product for the manual chair user who wants to continue to self-propel with upper or lower extremities, but needs some extra positioning and/or pressure relief. The weight and ease of folding is impressive for all of the function it provides, and consumers and therapists find it attractive!
As always, Ki has also been mindful of our funding challenges, and has been able to provide pricing that aligns well with our current funding restrictions.
