Sunrise Mobility have been teasing everyone for some time now about their new Quickie Krypton. However, the number of images available have been limited so far. So what do we know?
We know from the EU Sunrise website that there are two frame variants – Rigid Frame and Folding Frame. These will be denoted by the KryptonR and the KryptonFF. We also know that the carbon strands are braided and continuous to offer a stronger bond. It’s available in 4 styles of clear coated gloss, clear coated matte, black (matte or gloss) and bare carbon fibre – the latter offering a 100g weight saving.
The Krypton R starts at 6.2kg, which compared to a base Quickie Helium is a saving of 600g. The Krypton FF starts at 8.3kg.
We are still not aware of the launch dates – we do know that Sunrise are taking orders for the first Krypton’s at the moment.
